Ford is betting high on the Indian market and had made it clear that several new products will be introduced in emerging markets. Now, there is a possibility that the manufacturer could introduce its iconic model in India on January 28, 2016. The Mustang will be making its Indian debut sooner than expected.
The Mustang Right Hand Drive (RHD) model was showcased by Ford at the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show. Ford had never before focussed on developing its Mustang with RHD, which restricted its sales. The inclusion of RHD was a signal that Ford would bring the Mustang to India and several other emerging markets.
Internationally, Ford offers the Mustang with various engine layouts and options. For India, however, only the 5.0-litre, V8 petrol engine will be introduced. The engine will produce 429.05bhp and 542Nm of torque. Mustang will be equipped with optional 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
The Ford Mustang will be their flagship offering in India and will command premium pricing. The American automobile manufacturer will provide the Mustang as a Completely Built Unit (CBU). Expect the pricing of the 2016 Ford Mustang to be between Rs. 50 lakh to Rs. 55 lakh ex-showroom.
Ford India will be also be showcasing the Mustang at the 2016 Auto Expo. Several other products are also expected to make their debut at the event. The American automobile manufacturer will be launching its all-new Endeavour SUV in India as well on January 20, 2016.
