Local pricing and details leak for the new ‘Stang is unofficial, but looks right to us

What looks to be the pricing and specs for each variant of the local 2018 Ford Mustang have been leaked online.

A reliable (yet unofficial) source alerted MOTOR to the information, which outlines pricing for each variant, as well as specs for both engine types in the incoming Ponies.

Ford Australia has not confirmed the information.

Starting with the V8, pricing for the Mustang GT starts at $62,990 before on-roads, for which you get access to a 339kW/556Nm (33kW/26Nm up from the previous gen) 5.0-litre engine coupled with a manual ‘box.

This, by the way, is 4kW and 13Nm less than the US-spec Mustang GT.

In automatic, leaked info says that price rises to $66,259. Chopping the roof off brings that up to $74,709. There’s no manual drop-top, just as in the current gen.

Compare these prices to the $57,490, $59,990, and $65,916 (respectively) currently available, there’s a noticeable increase in pricing. But that comes with a noticeable improvement in both performance and spec.

While the EcoBoost-equipped  four-pot also scores an improvement in features, the engine doesn’t see much of a power increase.

In fact, the leaked specs show its power figure as down from 233kW to 224kW, though torque is up by 9Nm to 441.
