13,000 Australians express interest in Ford Mustang
More than 13,000 Australians have already expressed interest in the new Ford Mustang which arrives in Australia in mid-2015, says Ford.
THE 2015 FORD MUSTANG might just be the most anticipated new car to arrive in Australia since, well, ever, according to Ford Australia which says 13,000 Australians have already expressed interest in the vehicle.
“The Mustang is an iconic vehicle in Australia and around the world, and is drawing people to Ford well before it arrives here”, said Bob Graziano, President and CEO, Ford Australia, “This is the power of Mustang, and something we underestimated as we have many more customers asking to follow the car than we expected this early in the launch.”
The all-new Mustang is the most advanced version yet of the iconic pony car. The sleek new design of Mustang fastback and convertible is backed up by world-class performance from a range of available engines, including a new turbocharged EcoBoost 2.3-liter and an upgraded 5.0-liter V8 with more than 313kW and 529Nm.
The arrival of the new Mustang will continue Ford’s product onslaught over the course of 2015 which will also see the arrival of all-new Mondeo, and the Ford Everest SUV which will eventually replace the Territory, as well as the refreshed Focus and Focus ST (the ST, Ford told Practical Motoring is likely to arrive Down Under ahead of the full Focus line-up).
“We see around the world that many people are drawn to Ford because of the Mustang, even though they may end up buying another model from us,” said Graeme Whickman, sales and service vice president. “The Mustang’s arrival is perfect timing for us because we have been rapidly expanding our lineup and will refresh all of our models the next few years.
“This evolution and the visceral experience established for over 50 years in the Mustang, is evident in each of these new models as we continue to demonstrate our leadership in first class in-car technology and ahead of the curve response to customer demands.”
