A mildly modified version of the Ford Mustang has been showcased at the ongoing 2019 Bangkok International Motor Show. The latest version of the iconic American muscle car has been on sale in Thailand for a starting price of 3,599,000 baht (INR 78,00,688).
The revered muscle car went on sale in Thailand for the first time ever in its 54-year-long history in October 2018. Its latest iteration, which debuted at the NAIAS in January 2017, features many styling updates, which come together to make the sixth-gen ‘stang look bolder. At the front, it carries sharper headlamps that have the signature tri-slat LED DRLs, a lower hood with integrated air scoops, a revised lower grille, updated bumper, and new turn indicators. In the side profile, it features new 19-inch forged alloy wheels, while changes at the rear are restricted to C-shaped tri-bar taillights and a new bumper.
On the inside, the updated Ford Mustang offers a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and a centre console hand-stitched, soft-touch wrap for the centre console. The instrument binnacle and the door handles get an aluminium finish. The refreshed model even comes with new driver assistance and safety technologies, including Adaptive Cruise Control and Distance Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Aid.
In Thailand, the Ford Mustang is available with two engine options – 2.3-litre EcoBoost and 5.0-litre V8. The smaller motor produces a maximum power of 290 PS, while the latter outputs 450 PS. The bigger engine has gained 29 PS over its predecessor, which is owing to a new dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection system. A 10-speed automatic transmission has replaced the 6-speed automatic transmission that was available on the pre-facelift model.
The Ford Mustang is avaliable in four colour options – Orange Fury metallic, Race Red, Magnetic metallic, and Shadow Black.
