The current Mustang is one of the best selling muscle cars on the market for a reason, it is one of the best driving cars on the market today. While it can’t be compared with hyper cars, the Mustang manages to be quite close in terms of handling with some of its European competitors which is very good for Ford. In order to extend its lead and allow the car to get an even bigger share of the market, Ford is going to update the car. The 2016 Ford Mustang is going to add a few new trim levels as well as a few performance updates. On top of that, two new models are going to be available as well as an all new engine which is expected to power the fastest Mustang to date.

Its chassis will remain pretty much unchanged over what the current car has. However, Ford will now offer their performance package on the convertible cars as well. This will add thicker anti-roll bars, heavy duty front springs, beefier 6 piston caliper brakes in the front with bigger rotors as well as 19 inch rims wrapped in high performance tires.
Besides these upgrades, there are going to be a few new trim levels which are intended for those looking for a more classic look. These trim levels will include special color schemes, new wheels and tires as well as slight exterior changes such as different spoiler and different front bumpers for some of them.

Under the hood of the car on the other hand, the three main engines will remain unchanged so the car will continue to be offered with a base 3.7 liter naturally aspirated V6 with 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, a 2.3 liter EcoBoost inline 4 with 310 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque or the range topping GT model with a 5 liter naturally aspirated V8 with 435 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The GT350 will get the all new 5.2 liter flat-crank V8 with 526 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque while the all new model, the SuperSnake, is expected to get a newly developed V8. This could be the first ever turbocharged V8 Mustang and it could provide in excess of 700 horsepower, a true competitor for the Hellcat muscle cars.
Inside the cabin most things are going to be pretty similar to the older model. However, the 2016 Ford Mustang will get Ford’s all new Sync 3 infotainment system which will not only be easier to use but also a lot faster. This should be offered as standard on the higher end trim levels and it will be available as an option on all the others.
