According to a new leak, the new Ford Mustang comes with two hybrid variants – one of them with a V8 engine. AUTO BILD has the first information and shows what the Mustang could look like!
As early as the beginning of 2020, Ford involuntarily revealed when the next Mustang would be on the market. In a job advertisement that was published on the company’s own website and on the “LinkedIn” portal. A member of the “Mustang 6G Forum” became aware of the ad: It was about the new Mustang with the internal model designation S650 (the predecessor is called S550) – and that it should be launched in 2022.
The seventh generation will probably be presented as early as 2022, but will not reach dealers until 2023. The AUTO BILD illustration shows what the next Mustang might look like.
The design of the current model should be further developed
With a radical new design is not expected, probably developed Ford instead of the existing look ahead and take elements of the electric SUVs Mustang Mach I on. These should include the shape of the grill, which grows even further in sports cars, and the design of the side air inlets. Otherwise, a clearer design of the body and correspondingly fewer beads and edges can be expected. Our illustration shows reduced headlights that have nothing to do with current lighting design.
Maybe Ford is actually so keen to experiment with the lights – after all, the recently introduced Ranger was brave in this regard. As far as the interior is concerned, it is to be expected that Ford will transfer the portrait screen from the Mach-E to the regular Mustang. The existing digital cockpit could be upgraded with new displays or a better resolution.
The Mustang probably comes with two hybrid variants
There is also information about the engines from a Mustang forum – and that too originally came from LinkedIn. A former Ford engineer stated that he worked on two hybrid versions. Accordingly, there will be a 2.3-liter hybrid and an electrified version of the five-liter V8. It is unclear, however, whether these variants will be offered directly from the market launch, as rumor has it that the V8 hybrid was not announced to US dealers until 2025. It is possible that the new Mustang will also be available with a classic combustion engine without electrification. In addition, there is a persistent rumor that Ford will offer the car with an all-wheel drive for the first time.
