With wounds from imminent demise of the locally-made Ford Falcon still fresh, Ford Motor Co. has given Australian muscle car fans a reason to rejoice again. The Ford Mustang has been given a visa to Australia after almost half a century since it last rolled down local tarmac.
Ford’s Global Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Jim Farley, is expected to make the announcement on 13 August.
The Mustang is set to arrive in local showrooms in 2016, the same year that Falcon will cease production. It will be based on an all-new model designed for a global market that we reported earlier this year.
It will be the first time that the Mustang is built in right-hand drive, with the UK expected to be its biggest market, where it will be available with a four-cylinder EcoBoost engine.
Ford Australia is understood to be only importing the V8 versions.
