The all-new Mustang, ready to be released next year, is getting younger in looks and even heart, thanks to a dedicated, perhaps a bit fanatical, team of designers who want to continue the revered tradition of this 50-year-old legendary nameplate.
It's unmistakably still a muscle car that the big boys will drool over. But the noticeable changes will also draw the ladies to covet this sexy animal.
A simultaneous global "reveal" held in four key cities stretching four continents allowed invited guests a precious peek at the pony car's latest interior and exterior features.
The rumoured pricing of a unit will be in the upper P3-million ($85,280) range, not necessarily a stiff price to pay for the power and torque - and more - that this iconic brand is imprinted on the memory of a generation of car lovers.
Buzzwords like EcoBoost, Intelligent Access with push-button start to SYNC and MyKey in every Mustang built, plus available Track Apps, MyColor gauges and new Shaker Pro audio system make the 2015 Mustang truly of age - attuned to environmental concerns and information technology advances.
The Mustang convertible model will come with a standard multilayer insulated cloth top that gives the car a more upscale appearance and a quieter cabin. The new top lowers twice as fast as before and has a sleeker profile when folded for open-air motoring.
The information and controls an active driver needs are all readily accessible in the aviation-inspired cockpit, which is executed with the highest degree of craftsmanship found in a Mustang.
