Redesigned 2013 Mustang To Be Revealed At LA Auto Show
It’s as if the Mustang Fairy is granting some wishes – this November at the Los Angeles International Auto Show, Ford will be unveiling the redesigned 2013 Mustang. Crazy-Ford-said-what??? That’s right, loyal fans, according to insiders, there will be a pretty significant refresh of the Mustang just a year or so before the total redesign of the 50th anniversary Mustang hits the streets.
What is changing you ask? Well, for starters, the Mustang will be taking styling cues from the GT500’s front end with the larger, protruding upper grill and smaller, more rounded lower grill – AND – a redesigned rear end. Gone will be the diaper as well as the swept forward tail lights. It is as if Ford has been monitoring the forums and actually listening to enthusiasts <wink wink>. Also expect LED lights in front, possibly the lower fog lights.
Back in April, Inside Line published some spy pics of a Mustang test mule that could be wearing the new front end – it looks like a mixture of the GT500 and the Boss. Just imagine how good the 2013 Boss 302 will look with that front end…
Also reported to be coming to the 2013 Mustang is more power for the 5.0L Coyote – something rivaling the Camaro’s 426 hp rating, no doubt. What does this mean for the 2013 GT500? Well the rumors are already well established regarding the horsepower jump we can expect – somewhere in the neighborhood of 620 hp. But will it wear a new nose to help keep it different than the refreshed GTs? We will have to wait and see in November – hopefully all will be revealed.
