Ford to unveil next Mustang “nearly simultaneously” across 6 cities

Article by Anita Panait, on November 29, 2013

Ford will unveil the next Mustang to the world almost simultaneously next week through live broadcast in six cities across the globe. The global debut of the Mustang will be shown on "Good Morning America" on Dec. 5, 7 a.m. Eastern Time. The debut will be seen online at GoFurtherLive.com. That would be 7 a.m. in Dearborn, Michigan; 4 a.m. in Los Angeles, California; 11 p.m. in Sydney, Australia; 8 p.m.in Shanghai; 1 p.m. in Barcelona, Spain.

These details of the Mustang debut were announced during the Tuesday edition of "Good Morning America," according to the Web site Mustang6G.com. Ford has already employed synchronized, multi-city events to launch several vehicles in the past years. The launch of the new Mustang celebrates the 50th year that the original Mustang was first rolled out in 1964.

It was Ford's first international press introduction. That year, Lee Iacocca and Henry Ford II showcased the first Mustang on the opening weekend of the New York World's Fair, simultaneous with unveils in 11 European capitals. Ford remarked that executives, dealers and "local influencers" will be involved in each of the city launches.

Ford spokesman Alan Hall said the reveals would happen "nearly simultaneously" -- leaving some working space for the logistics of coordinating across five time zones. Invitations to the Los Angeles reveal showed that the event will be held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard at 10 a.m. local time.

Drivers who get the chance to drive the Mustang will get to feel that visceral experience that will make them stay inside and just drive. Making this possible is not only how the Mustang looks but also the driving experience and the sound. Now more than ever, customers are given more choices, allowing them to have a Mustang that best meets their needs. While the automaker did upgrade the V6 engine and even the V8 one, it also added in the newest EcoBoost 2.3-liter engine.

With this, the Mustang is able to offer cutting-edge technology. Speaking of upgrades, the 5.0-liter V8 engine shows that the valve train and the cylinder heads have been upgraded. As a result, output is expected to be at least 420 hp (426 PS) with peak torque of 390 lb.-ft. (529 Nm). Further, by putting in a new intake manifold, this allowed the low-speed breathing to become enhanced.

Thus fuel economy is better as well as emissions and even stability. For the 3.7-liter V6 engine, output is expected to be at least 300 hp (304 PS) with top torque offered at 270 lb.-ft. (366 Nm). This engine results in a Mustang that is not only accessible but also one that offers the performance customers have long expected from it. Under the EcoBoost engine, it makes use of a combination of turbocharging, variable cam timing, and direct injection. All of these allow for high levels of performance and practicality as well as fuel efficiency that is at the top of the segment. Combining the turbocharger housing with the intake manifold results in this version being able to have expected output at least 305 hp (309 PS) with maximum torque of 300 lb.-ft. (407 Nm).

In addition, the upgraded manual gearbox means customers will experience smoother shifts. On the other hand, the modified automatic transmission reveals shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel. This allows the driver to have an option between control and convenience. Ford Mustang Chief Engineer Dave Pericak shared that the new EcoBoost is able to deliver what any Mustang drivers expected it to be. The flat and wide torque curve, he added, is able to “pour out” when standing on it ensuring hustling when going on twisty roads or even easy passing.
