Apparently touted as the ’the last hurrah before the major overhaul in 2015, the 2014 Ford Mustang is the last chance for customers who are fans of the current, retro inspired design to snag one up before the Evos-inspired 2015 Ford Mustang is announced.
For the new ’Stang, Ford will axed minor features such as the cheap-looking lower-body tape stripe and the rear deck spoiler. Ford will announce two new packages that customers can choose to personalize their vehicle even further. One package is known as the Black Appearance Package and it includes black outside mirror skull caps, a black deck lid spoiler, quarter window louvers and 18-inch black aluminum wheels. The other package, known internally as the FP8, includes the features of the first package in addition to larger 19-inch black aluminum rims. People opting for this exterior package can expect the car to look more aggressive and visceral.
In the performance department, the engine lineup remains unchanged. The 2014 Mustang will be powered by a 3.7-liter V-6, a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 for the GT or a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 for the range-topping Shelby GT500.
As of now, no changes to the suspension systems and transmission system have been announced or leaked. So, expect the same 5-speed automatic or, the favorite, 6-speed manual to stay.
Prices for the 2014 Ford Mustang start at $22,995 for the V6 Coupe, $26,995 for the V6 Premium Coupe, $31,545 for the GT Coupe, $35,545 for the GT Premium Coupe, $55,445 for the GT500 820A Coupe and $58,940 for the GT500 821A Coupe. From the figures, we can notice that the V-8 models are $450 pricier. Also, Ford has dropped the $1,500 rebate on V-6 and GT models. Customers opting for the new Black Appearance Package will have to shell out an extra $995, which is kind-of worth it judging by the contents of the package. Notice the lack of the Boss 302 Mustang price? Yeah, we did too... Ford stayed true to its word by eliminating it after just two years.
For now, this is all the information we have, but we anticipate seeing the veil lifted from the 2014 Mustang in early 2013. We’ll pass on more info once it becomes available.
