New S-650 Mustang production should begin early next year.
V8 and EcoBoost 4-cylinder engines will return.
The current 6th-generation Ford Mustang hit the road in 2015 and proved to be a hit. For a while, it was one if not the best-selling sports car in the world. Sales have declined over the last few years, but Ford is committed to its legendary pony car.
There’s been talk about the new S-650 Mustang for months now and all, or most, will be revealed at this year’s Detroit auto show, at least that is what’s expected.
Ford spokesman Mike Levine on Tuesday declined to discuss the automaker’s Detroit show plans as reported by Automotive News. “We’ve previously said the all-new, seventh-generation Mustang is on the way and we can’t wait to share more details soon,” he said in a statement.
Rumours of an electrified Mustang are rampant as are a potential PHEV version which could launch the first-ever AWD ‘Stang. More than likely, Ford will introduce the new sports car, mention its standard powertrains, and tell us that there’s more to come in the future.
This year’s NAIAS will be held from September 14th to the 25th at Detroit’s Huntington Place convention center.
