Ford will use the event to announce that its South African dealerships will officially open order books for the iconic performance model in January, before its official introduction at the end of 2015.
The all-new Ford Mustang fastback and convertible models promise exceptional performance and refinement while embracing the Mustang’s half-century of heritage and status as a global icon. Notably, it will be the most modern Mustang to date, boasting independent rear suspension - a first - that will transform the way it handles. Equipment levels will also be on par with what customers have come to expect of Ford’s smart vehicles, including technologies such as Sync 2, Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert, as well as other driver-aid systems.
More than nine million Mustangs have been sold since the model was first launched in 1964. The world’s most-liked vehicle on Facebook, Mustang has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games, and is one of 17 new vehicles that Ford will launch in South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa by the end of 2015.
The new Mustang has been developed with impressive performance, driving dynamics and usability in mind – and includes a significant amount of advanced driver convenience and driver- aid technologies.
Unfortunately, we do have to wait some time before this iconic car finds its way to our shores. But we’re happy it’s finally available in a right-hand drive option.
