Powering the 2023 Ford Mustang are- 2.3L Ecoboost and 5.0L V8 engines.
It’s been a while, the Mustang lovers are waiting for a much-needed upgrade with new design and features. So, finally, the wraps are off from the new 2023 Ford Mustang at Detroit Auto Show 2022. This is the 7th generation of the Mustang since its launch in 1964. The buyer’s interest is still managed towards this Grand Tourismo car, even the last generation model was not up to the mark and lacks in some of the places.
With this new generation upgrade, we are expecting more.
2023 Ford Mustang: Design and Paint Schemes?
The moreover body shape still resembles the sixth generation Mustang GT, but the changes we can see are majorly and the rear. The headlight unit is now redesigned and now has new slimmer headlamps with tri-bar LED DRLs, a hexagonal blacked-out grille, large air vents, and sharp cuts and edges on the front bumper.
The hood is upraised with sharp cuts and has a functional air extractor, that not only vents hot air but also helps in directing the high-pressure air from the air intakes to reduce the lift over to the front axle.
The rear section has not many things changed, the changes are limited to the newly redesigned headlamps, a large diffuser to help in stability, and quad exhaust pipes.
The added new colour options in the 2023 Ford Mustang are- Carbonized Gray Metallic and Vapor Blue Metallic, Earlier shades are also available.
2023 Ford Mustang: Interior and Features?
The Mustang is offered in three trims, base, mid and top. The base trim gets twin screens, but the mid and top trims get a continuous design featuring two screens, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and a larger 13.2-inch touchscreen display in-built with Ford’s SYNC 4 software version.
The superiorness in this generation can be seen in the choice of materials and the fitment quality. The steering wheel is flat bottom, has a lot of brushed aluminum use, the center console is slightly tilted towards the driver’s side and the seats are leatherette and have a heating function with electronic adjustment.
The 13.2-inch touchscreen unit features android auto, apple car play, navigation, mirror link, and camera display. The speaker system used in the 2023 Ford Mustang seems good and the voice quality is not too bad.
This newly updated cabin will surely attract new buyers and the now competition to the Chevrolet Camaro is not tougher.
2023 Ford Mustang: Platform, Suspension, and Brakes?
The new 2023 Ford Mustang underpins the S550 Platform instead of Ford’s latest S650, on which the 2022 Ford Explorer is built. The use of the earlier platform has cleared the doubt of expecting an electric version of Mustang, which was rumored on the internet widely.
The suspension duties in the new Mustang GT are fulfilled by MacPherson struts at the front and independent rear suspension at the rear. However, it’s the older suspension but there are some tweaks made such as- it’s stiffened and some dampers and springs added for a better controlled and comfortable drive.
The 2023 Ford Mustang is equipped with all four Brembo ventilated disc brakes with ABS, EBD, and BA.
2023 Ford Mustang: Engine and Transmission?
Powering the 2023 Ford Mustang are two engines- a less powered 2.3L Ecoboost 4-cylinder engine and a 5.0L, 6-cylinder V8 engine. These less-powered engines are upgraded with some internal parts, such as – a new bore, stroke, and reinvigorated turbocharger. Meanwhile, the V8 engine is not touched, and just the refinement and efficiency are tuned. The power and torque figures are not revealed but they should be better than their predecessor.
In the earlier version, a 6-speed automatic gearbox was offered with the 5.0L, V8 only but with this gen, there is a new 10-speed automatic is launched as standard with 2.3L, Ecoboost but optional with the V8.
Will the 2023 Ford Mustang come to India?
Ford discontinued its production and selling of cars in India in 2021, the last car also rolled out from the factory. However, Ford has claimed, that they will continue selling imported cars in India like the Mustang Mach E and others.
We could say, as of now the launch of the new Mustang in India is not planned for the near future but the hope is still not lost, because they will manufacture the Mustang in the RHD countries like Australia and Japan.
