In 1964, the first Ford Mustang sports car code-named VIN 001 was pushed off the production line. White convertible body, V8 engine matching three-speed manual transmission. From then on, the legendary career of Mustang models began. As the seventh generation of the series, the new Mustang seems to aim to continue the legend of its predecessors.
The Mustang is a world-famous American sports car, whether in the United States or overseas markets, Mustang has gained a large number of fans with its handsome appearance and strong power performance. As one of the American muscle car giants, Mustang is even the most successful existence of its kind, both in terms of sales and popularity, Mustang has thrown off its competitors.
The American muscle car in the new era is very different from the past. The era of blindly pursuing high horsepower in the past is gone forever.
“Only good at straight-line acceleration” is the most intuitive perception of American muscle cars in the past, but the story is different now. Whether it is Mustang or its competitors, American muscle cars seem to be gradually becoming “American sports cars” Classification.
While retaining the passion of the original V8 engine, the handling and driving experience of the vehicle have been greatly improved.
The seventh-generation Mustang still retains the V8 internal combustion engine option. Ford’s fourth-generation Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine still appears under the Mustang’s hood. We just need to know that the Mustang is still an American V8 muscle car, and that’s enough.
Of course, the more “reasonable” 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine also exists on the list, matched with a 6-speed manual or 10AT gearbox. It is a more economical and more suitable option for driving in the city.
The appearance of the seventh-generation Mustang has many obvious changes. Low and horizontal lines run across the front of the car, emphasizing the overall visual width, and the shape of the air intake grille echoes the style of the first-generation Ford Mustang in the 1960s. The three-column LED light group inherits the classic headlight design of the Mustang series. At the same time, the streamlined roofline, wide and sharp body stance, and short and powerful rear overhang design are also a tribute to the original Mustang model.
In terms of rear design, the seventh-generation Mustang has also been simplified. The more neat new iconic three-pillar taillights and the newly designed rear diffuser achieve a better aerodynamic balance at the rear of the car. Although it is not as rough as the American muscle cars of the past, it has a touch of modern sports car.
The seventh-generation Mustang has obvious appearance changes in different versions. The 5.0-liter GT version has a larger air intake grille, highlighting its stronger power and performance.
New air intakes have been added to the bonnet to further optimize the car’s aerodynamics. At the same time, the GT version also added a large rear wing at the rear, and the “horse logo” in the center of the tailgate was also changed to a blackened “GT” word, and below was a domineering four-outlet exhaust.
In terms of interior, the new car adopts a brand-new design language, the most conspicuous of which is the dual screen consisting of a 12.4-inch full LCD instrument and a 13.2-inch central touch screen on the center console. This will be the most technologically advanced, driver-focused intelligent cockpit in a Ford Mustang to date.
The seventh-generation Mustang is equipped with Ford’s SYNC 4 car-machine system, which can display rich vehicle status information through two screens, and the driver can also freely customize the vehicle’s power, gearbox and other parameters in the central control screen. At the same time, the customization function of the dashboard also supports car owners to choose their favorite animation design and new driving mode display interface.
The Ford Mustang was never the most powerful sports car in the world, but it is perhaps one of the most popular. Fashionable appearance, surging power reserve, and more importantly, a reasonable price.
