The new sporty version 2023 Ford Mustang has been confirmed and it might deploy completely different powertrain than before. From the information that we got, the upcoming model could use a new AWD Hybrid V8 system. Moreover, we heard that production will start next year in Michigan.
If you didn’t know, in the same factory, the Blue Oval will assemble Mach-E model. Allegedly, the company’s priority is to launch the Mustang Mach-E over any other electrified Mustangs. However, the seventh-generation Ford Mustang will surely bring more refreshments than before. We have some leaked documentation that reveals plenty of updates and changes.
2023 Ford Mustang Exterior Design and Platform
From plenty of speculations, the next-generation 2023 Ford Mustang could ride on the new modular platform. This is an excellent investment because 70 percent of a vehicle’s value can be managed through the use of shared, highly modular platforms. This strategy is also used by two world’s biggest automakers, Toyota and the Volkswagen Group.
However, at this time, we don’t have much information regarding exterior styling. We believe that next-generation should represent many improvements. Moreover, Mustang might be more significant than the current model because of the modular platform. From some gossips, the next models could measure 188.3 inches long and ride on a 107.1-inch wheelbase.
Cabin Would Host Better Styling
The cabin of the latest pony will host more upscale materials and better techs. From the information that we got, the new Ford Mustang might borrow plenty of cues from the Mustang Mach-S sedan. If that happens, the new Ford Mustang could get the same infotainment system.
The upcoming Mustang Mach-S employed a large 15.5-inch portrait-oriented control screen on the center stack. Ford says this highly configurable touch screen is easy to navigate and is the highlight of this sedan. Eider way, we can expect a comfortable and sporty cabin never seen before in the Ford Mustang.
2023 Ford Mustang Under the Hood
Most likely, the next 2023 Ford Mustang would get some sort of electrifications. Many believe that this model will feature a new AWD Hybrid V8 system. This system might consist of a traditional V8 powertrain up front sending drive to the rear wheels.
Also, besides the V8 engine, the new Mustang would be coupled with an electric motor at each of the front wheels. Also, we heard that Blue Oval will add lesser battery capacity that could give a small electric range. However, Ford could use a new eight-speed automatic transmission or even nine-speed on the upcoming Mustang.
Release Date and Price
The new 2023 Ford Mustang has been confirmed and we are happy to hear that it might use a new powertrain. Also, we got information that the next Mustang will ride on a different platform, meaning there’d be no room for bespoke platforms like the D2C. As we mentioned at the beginning, the production should starts next year in Michigan, while release can be expected sometime in 2022. Pricing might be slightly higher than before, but no significant.
