You might have already heard rumors that the 2014 Ford Mustang will feature a four-cylinder engine and a globally-influenced design. However, some recent reports indicate that it outperforms all the rumors that came earlier. Let’s check.
Smaller and lighter than the current model, the variant is also reported to feature improved-interiors with higher quality materials and advanced technology. But the retro styling will remain the same.
The 2014 Mustang is expected to be powered by a 2.5-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and a 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS) 5.4-liter V8 engine. Previous reports have suggested that the EcoBoost will displace 2.3-liters and a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 will also be offered.
In order to improve handling and ride comfort, Mustang is likely to adopt an independent rear suspension. A torque vectoring system like the 2012 Focus might also be incorporated.
The next-generation Mustang will be offered globally with right-hand drive for Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom.
