Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa’s latest pricing bulletin includes the facelifted Mustang, which we expect to hit local shores towards the end of July 2019 (or possibly early in August).
The updated line-up will comprise five variants, including the limited-edition Bullitt pictured below. As we reported in June 2019, just 55 examples of the latter have been set aside for South Africa.
The range will kick off with the turbocharged 2,3-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine, which generates 213 kW (interestingly, a full 20 units down from the 233 kW offered in the pre-facelift model that was discontinued locally in April 2019) and will be available exclusively in ten-speed automatic guise. Both fastback (R768 000) and convertible (R831 000) body styles will be offered with this EcoBoost mill.
The 5,0-litre V8, meanwhile, makes 331 kW (up from 306 in the pre-facelift version) and will also be offered exclusively with the new ten-speed auto transmission, and again in fastback (R915 800) and convertible (R978 400) guises. The flagship is the Bullitt (for R995 400), which uses the same naturally aspirated V8, but with 338 kW and a six-speed manual gearbox. It's thus the only manual model in the updated line-up.
For the record, the facelifted Mustang was revealed as long ago as January 2017, boasting styling updates inside and out, as well as mechanical tweaks such as the addition of that new ten-speed and the adoption of a new (optional at R15 300) adaptive damper system.
