cockpit to advanced turbocharged and naturally aspirated engines to its edgier yet still
timeless exterior design.”

Whether convertible or coupe, V8 or turbo-petrol four cylinder, manual or automatic,
Mustang has options for multiple prices and performance levels.

Ford Australia will add a special edition nameplate to the Mustang stable, Dark Horse. This
is a street and track-capable performance Mustang with striking visual cues a specially
modified 5.0-litre V8. Further specs and information will be released closer to local launch.

The seventh-generation Mustang will have a fighter jet-inspired cockpit with two flowing
and curved displays that can be customised to show the information the driver wants to

“We’re taking advantage of every pixel,” said Craig Sandvig, Ford Mustang interaction
design manager. “We can be creative showing necessary driving information yet also give
the driver control to decide how to display everything from selecting colours to classic
Mustang gauges to simply creating a ‘calm’ screen where only minimal details are
