FORD MUSTANG 2023: THE NEW GENERATION OF THE PONY CAR IS REVEALED WITH A BIG V8 ENGINE!
For the seventh time, it’s back. The new generation of the Ford Mustang 2023 has finally been unveiled at an event in Detroit, USA. The famous pony car gets a new design, a new interior, and even the most powerful Coyote V8 ever integrated with a Mustang GT.
Presented in Fastback and Convertible body styles, this new Ford Mustang 2023 retains its athletic coupe look. But the muscle car has a new front end, marked by a grille that splits into three sections. The Mustang logo is of course in the center of the grille.
The grille is surrounded by LED headlights as well as daytime running lights in three lines, in order to offer a “meaner” look to the car. Ford says it was inspired by the original 1960s Mustang styling. The body comes in eleven colors, including three new shades called Vapor Blue, Blue Ember, and Yellow Splash. The alloy wheels measure 19 inches in diameter.
Otherwise, the design of this new generation Mustang is marked by a tapered roofline, a shortened rear overhang, and wide rear fenders. The car’s stern ends in a spoiler with an additional spoiler on top. Underneath these aerodynamic elements, the Mustang retains its iconic lights, divided into three blocks. Four exhaust outlets are integrated into an aerodynamic diffuser.
