We are all familiar with the now-iconic Mustang. Launched in 1964, the vehicle is about to enter its sixth generation and for the first time in history it will be available in the UK. To celebrate, we’re going to take a look back at Mustang’s history and find out what the latest version has to offer.
It all started in 1962 with the Ford Mustang I concept car. The vehicle didn’t resemble the production version at all, however it was the very first car to use the Mustang name.
The first production Mustang was introduced in mid-1964. It created the “pony car” class of sports cars with long hoods and short rear decks.
It was very popular vehicle that upon its release received around 2,600 positive articles in various different magazines and publications.
The car remained in production until 1973, after which the second generation was launched. The many styling changes were the main reason for the production of the first generation ending, as the car’s design became slightly less appealing around the early 1970’s.
Fast-forward to 2016 and the Mustang is still here, about to enter its sixth generation. Having debuted in late 2013, the vehicle looks nothing like the Mustangs of the past.
It’s definitely more sporty and modern, which is a very good thing. Certain vehicles cling on to the past, which often ends up not doing them any favours. The Mustang received a well-deserved makeover and we couldn’t be more excited.
Three different engines will be available to choose from, including a V6, EcoBoost and GT.
On top of that, the 2016 model will be the very first Mustang to be available in right hand drive. It will be sold globally and has the potential of becoming the most popular and successful Mustang to date.
At the moment it’s believe the base model will be priced around £30,000 in the UK, however depending on which engine you choose the price will differ.
