A new Mustang is built around existing power train and chassis hardware. The Fox-4, the platform, is more solid, due to the larger rocker panels, roof rails and stronger joints. These changes aid in preventing noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) and providing enhanced handling characteristics.
The Mustang becomes more aerodynamic. Its headlights, which surround the pony emblem, create a face that is reminiscent of vintage Mustangs. The hood sweeps into a sharply raked windshield and short rear deck. Retro hood vents, side scoops and layered tri-bar taillights complete the major styling themes of the new Mustang. A revamped interior is also inspired, including instruments surrounded by separate spheres for the driver and passenger.
The engine consists of the 215-horsepower 5.0L V8 with silicone-alloy pistons, roller-cam valvetrain, 65 mm throttle body and tubular exhaust headers and a 145-horsepower 3.8-liter V6, which features sequential electronic fuel injection.
