The Ford Mustang Soon To Take Over Europe?
Rumors have been circulating forever about the Mustang going overseas and now it has become official. It was overheard that Barb Samardzich, head of development for Ford Europe, that the new ‘Stang must meet European Union pedestrian safety laws. That definitely says something about the Mustang branching off and going global.
The Mustang is actually quite popular among Europeans and Ford has quite a plan for a rebound. To decrease their debt from the last few losses, Ford needs to make a bold move for monetary reasons. A big decision has been made to see if they can fix their money problem over there with the introduction of the Ford Mustang to the European market.
The Mustang will apparently be available in the “in the near term” which means that the redesigned model will likely start a Europe debut as well.
As far as we know of the ’15 reveal, that it will not be going retro as it has with the previous Mustang redesigns, but looking to be more futuristic instead. It will feature IRS (Independent Rear Suspension) and will have a whole different global platform. Let’s not forget that the 4 or six cylinder EcoBoost will likely be an option, as well as probably offering that traditional Mustang V8 too. It has been said that it may mock the Ford Evos Concept, the one that sported those awkward gull-wing doors, but supposedly sans the doors.
Only time will tell what the next Mustang will look like and if that’s when it plans on making its European debut also. For now we have plenty of ’15 Mustang renderings all over the web to remind us of how it could turn out.
