New Ford Mustang may come to India next year

New Ford Mustang may come to India next year

The sixth-generation Ford Mustang was revealed at a glittering ceremony on December 5, 2013. At the same event, the company made an announcement that a right-hand-drive version of the pony car would be made available. Now, we have rumours gaining ground that Ford’s muscle car will be making it to the Indian shores in 2015. 

Ford is also planning alternate engine options for this flagship vehicle outside American market. The reason is that they want to make the car attractive for markets where fuel is expensive, therefore by changing engines they want to offer higher fuel efficiency in markets outside USA.

Two lower powered petrol engines, in the form of a 3.7-litre naturally aspirated V6 motor outputting 300bhp-366Nm and a 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbo petrol engine with an output of 305 bhp-406Nm could be what we are looking at. Transmission options include six-speed manual and automatic gearboxes.

Right-hand-drive markets like India, Australia and UK are definitely on the company’s list and if the car does make it to India in the latter half of next year, we are sure the roads will be reverberating with the Mustang’s roar. The expectations have arisen as newspapers reports have quoted Raj Nair, Ford’s global chief of product development as saying, “We have a lot of fans of the Mustang in India.” So will India’s wishes be granted? Next year we may have an answer.

"The right-hand version will enable us to provide the Mustang to a lot of new markets. India sure is a right-hand market," Nair said, though refusing to confirm its immediate entry. "We cannot speculate on this now."

Ford, in case it introduces it here in India, will have a clear path ahead as there is no direct competition for it in this segment.
