The India-spec Ford Mustang derives its power from a 401bhp, 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine, paired to a 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
The Ford Mustang will come to India as CBU (completely built up) unit that will make it a tad pricier than its UK-spec model.
The American carmaker, Ford has finally introduced its iconic sports car – Ford Mustang – in India at Rs 65 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Initially, the company will accept bookings for the Mustang in Delhi and Mumbai only. While, it will go on sale in other cities by the next year. As a reminder, the Mustang made its India debut early this year, and was also showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016.
This pony car will be imported to India as CBU (completely built up) unit. Unlike the global model that are available in multiple engine options, the India-spec model comes with a 401bhp, 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine. This power mill has been re-calibrated to meet domestic fuel quality, thus making it less powerful than the US and UV versions.

The new-generation Mustang carries the classic original design and silhouettes.

This pony is assembled with large 18-inch Magnetic Gloss paint machined aluminum alloy wheels. Other interesting design bits include a shortened rear deck, tri-bar tail lamps with LED elements and sequential turn signals, wider rear fenders and rear diffuser.
The interior of the Mustang is as premium and sporty as its exterior. The car comes loaded with several bells and whistles such as a dual-zone HVAC system, dual front airbags, curtain and knee-bags, launch control, adaptive cruise control, electronic line-lock, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert, rain-sensing wipers, drive mode selector and many more.

The India-spec model, on the other hand, is powered by a 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine that is capable of producing 401bhp of power and 515Nm of torque. This makes it 40bhp less powerful than the US spec version. Paired to a 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with paddle shifters, this powertrain offers a top speed of 250kmph. The car offers four driving modes – Normal, Sport+, Track and Wet.
