Ford’s Mustang has crept up in price again for the 2020 model year, how kicking off from $50,990 before on-road costs for the entry-level manual EcoBoost Fastback.
However, this Mustang EcoBoost will be short lived as the High Performance 2.3L is due to land in February, and lifts outputs by 12kW/7Nm to 236kW/448Nm due to a larger turbocharger.
The High Performance 2.3L will also gain a number of styling tweaks including a V8-powered GT’s front diffuser, contrasting side mirrors and wider tyres, as well as retuned gearing.
Propulsion in the GT comes from a 5.0-litre petrol V8, which produces 339kW of power and 556Nm of torque.
For the 2020 model year, Ford Australia has added a $1000 Black Shadow Pack available on GT Fastback variants, which darken the front grille, badging, 19-inch wheels and bonnet vents.
Four new colours are also on offer – ‘Grabber Lime’, ‘Twister Orange’, ‘Iconic Silver’ and ‘Red Hot’.
Standard equipment in the GT includes Brembo brakes, a bimodal exhaust, 19-inch wheels, 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, 8.0-inch Sync3 multimedia touchscreen, autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist and a reversing camera.
Ford Australia also recently unveiled the flagship Mustang R-Spec, which is limited to just 500 units and is powered by supercharged 5.0-litre V8, which should lift outputs well beyond the 339kW/556Nm available in the GT.
Though Ford Australia is yet to confirm exact engine power and torque figures, the R-Spec will be limited to just 500 units, priced from $99,980 before on-road costs and available in early 2020.
