Ford, the American automaker unveiled the facelifted version of Ford Mustang at the 2017 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The car has reached India and has been spotted at a dealership yard in a new Kona Blue colour scheme. The updated Mustang is likely to be showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo, followed by the launch later this year.

The 2018 Ford Mustang gets a revised styling with a sleeker design and an athletic stance, besides some mechanical updates. In terms of design, the car gets a refreshed front fascia featuring a lower hood, new LED headlights with three LED DRLs, wider radiator grille and restyled bumper with integrated turn indicators.

At the sides, the car sports new 19-inch alloy wheels. Moving to the rear, the most significant change made is the tail lights getting a C-shaped housing. The new additions to the existing colour schemes at the exterior include Kona Blue, Royal Crimson and Orange Fury.

The new Mustang receives a refreshed interior with plenty of features to offer a good driveability. The major update incorporated is the inclusion of a customisable 12-inch full-digital instrument cluster. Certain safety features like lane departure warning, distance alert, pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking are the additional goodies.

Mechanically, the all-new Mustang is available with the options of a new 2.3-litre, four-cylinder EcoBoost engine and a 5.0-litre, V8 engine. The EcoBoost engine churns out a maximum power output of 306 bhp at 5,500 revolutions per minute against a peak torque of 475 Nm at 3,000 revolutions per minute. On the other hand, the V8 engine produces a maximum power of 454 bhp and a 569 Nm of peak torque. 

Globally, the engines are mated to either a revised six-speed manual gearbox with the twin-disc clutch or a new 10-speed automatic gearbox. However, the Indian-spec model is expected to get the 5.0-litre, V8 engine paired with a 10-speed automatic gearbox. 

Apart from these mechanical changes, the new Mustang gets a cross-axis joint and a new stabilizer in the rear shock absorbers, which improves the stability of the vehicle. Just like its predecessor, the 2018 Mustang will be imported as a completely built unit (CBU) to India.
