Come 2015, the Ford Mustang may touch down into India

Snapshot: The Ford Mustang, a flagship car of the American automaker, will be available in right hand drive guise from 2015. India, being a right hand drive market, with a large base of Mustang fans, might be a new market for the American muscle car. Apart from constantly dropping hints of the latest, 6th generation version of the Mustang making it to Indian shores, Ford officials have stopped short of confirming the muscle car for the Indian market.

2014 Ford Mustang Muscle Car

If the 2014 Mustang does make it to India next year, expect the car to arrive here as a completely built unit. In India, the Mustang will be a unique offering as direct competition to this car is non-existent. The Mustang faces no competition from other muscle cars such as the Chevrolet Corvette and the Chevrolet Camaro in India as these cars have never been sold here. If sold in India, the Ford Mustang will serve as a brand builder for the American car brand.

Recently, Ford unveiled the 6th generation version of the Mustang, in time for the car’s 50th anniversary. The Mustang, which was first launched in 1964, has seen a complete design revamp. The car is available with three engine options, all of them petrol powered. The top-of-the-line Mustang features a 5 liter V8 engine in naturally aspirated guise. This motor outputs 420 Bhp-530 Nm.

Two other lower powered petrol engines, in the form of a 3.7 liter naturally aspirated V6 motor outputting 300 Bhp-366 Nm and a 2.3 liter EcoBoost turbo petrol engine outputting 305 Bhp-406 Nm round off the 2014 Mustang’s powerplant options. Transmission options include 6 speed manual and automatic gearboxes. The 2014 Mustang makes a major departure from the outgoing version in that it gets independent rear suspension in place of the solid rear axle. Other changes include more spacious seating, revamped suspension and braking, and all new interiors.
