Sixth-gen Ford Mustang facelift to go on sale for MY2018

August 19, 2015

The sixth generation Ford Mustang was officially unveiled in December 2013 and it went on sale in the United States the following year as MY2015. For the first time in its history, the iconic muscle car will be sold in more than 100 countries, including right hand drive (RHD) markets like the UK, South Africa, Australia and India.

Ford also has the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R pipelined for the summer. The duo gets a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine that produces over 500 hp and 542 Nm of torque. The company’s most powerful naturally aspirated production engine sends power to the rear-axle via a 6-speed manual transmission.

Now, according to Automotive News, the American company has started plans for the facelift of the current Mustang, which will likely enter the market as MY2018. The publication states that the facelifted Mustang will get a restyled front fascia along with a new 10-speed automatic gearbox that is offered in the latest F-150 Raptor.

Other details about the car are not known but it is expected that Mustang will retain the current engine options. Moreover, a more performance-oriented Ford Mustang Mach 1 edition could be launched as well. This Mach 1 edition was available on the previous generation Mustang and Ford may introduce this variant following the facelift.
