Ford has never sold its roaring and powerful Mustang in the Indian Market, since it was launched in 1964. But now the American automotive giant has officially unleashed the all new 2015 Mustang GT on Indian Shores. For the most of Indians like me, it’s love at first sight affair. It’s hard to ignore its roaring V8 sound, which most of us had only heard in the Hollywood movies and occasionally at the Auto shows.
Ford is seriously considering Indian market on its top of the agenda due to availability of a large consumer market for cars and growing demands for supercars here. The new Mustang will hit the stores in second quarter of 2016 and by seeing curiosity of most of the people about this beast; it will surely bring some smile for the Ford Motors in the Indian subcontinent.
This sixth Generation Ford Mustang GT features 5.0 liter V8 engine which punches 435 hp and max torque of 542 Nm at 4250 rpm. With such immense horsepower under its belly, the new Mustang accelerates 0-100 km/hr (0-62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds. This new Pony car comes with loads of features such as new SYNC 3 infotainment system with voice activated commands, an adaptive cruise control with collision warning, reverse park assist and advanced safety and luxury features.
The other noticeable features include Push – button start, paddle shifters for 6-speed manual, HID Headlights, LED Tail-lights, and a new independent front and rear suspension.
