The Ford Mustang, an iconic muscle car from Ford, has introduced its facelifted version at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. A trusted source has revealed that the facelifted version will be more powerful and aerodynamic than its predecessor.

Along with the existing colours, there are 3 new colour options which are Royal Crimson, Lightning blue and Orange Fury.
As per the information, the new car will come with a new 5.0L Coyote V8 which has been tuned for more power and torque. There has also been rumours of the 2.3L EcoBoost engine for more fuel efficiency. As per the leaked information, the 2.3L EcoBoost engine produces 316HP whereas the V8 produces 416HP. The engine is mated to Ford’s all new 10-speed automatic transmission that the company claims has improved shift-time than the predecessor.

The driving modes also get individual setting that the driver can set on the go. Ford’s Infotainment system, also known as SYNC, now gets support for Apple Play and Android Auto.
Under the skin, Ford has improved the ride quality by upgrading the shock absorbers, fitting a new cross-axis joint and by tweaking the stabiliser bars, all of which are claimed to improve handling. There is also an optional Mustang performance kit that comes with Magneride suspension as on the American-only GT350R
As the present car received a two-star Euro NCAP rating, the upcoming Mustang is equipped with pre-collision warning system and pedestrian detection system, along with ABS, EBD and airbags.
