The times are indeed a changin’! I think we may have proof of this change as the Mustang world anticipates the release of the 2014 over-haul that has sparked a
ton bit of speculation. The interior is rumored to be much better with higher quality materials and the installation of advanced technology. Also, the 2014 Mustang model will be a retro throwback to the 60’s Fastbacks and will now feature change in the form of… a Turbo Charger !
The guys over at Auto Express basically confirmed that the new model will feature a 2.5-liter EcoBoost turbo that will generate about 300-HP and will also feature, drum roll please… Independent Rear Suspension! Go ahead, soak that one up. (And don’t worry, a 5.4-liter 500-HP V8 will be available if you’re after some muscle – afterall, this is a Mustang!)
The confirmed smaller, leaner chassis will only be a rocket-ship with a 500-HP V8! This new platform will help the Mustang make its way over to the UK and other continents (right hand drive), as Ford continues to compete globally.
The rumor that Ford will be featuring the new EcoBoost Turbo in its new model has been circulating for quite some time, but IRS? That’s news! Do you like where the new Mustang is headed? What about the concept design (even though they’re hardly ever accurate)?
