The globalization started by Ford with the Fiesta model and the new generation of Focus will be followed by one of the sacred monsters: the famous american muscle car Ford Mustang. Ford plans to build a future Mustang that has the same shape everywhere, the difference will be the engine. The Mustang for Europe’s will have a diesel engine, strategy chosen to attract European customers for the U.S. model.
According to preliminary data, the main contender should be wide Mustang 3.0 liter V6 diesel engine which we find on Jaguar XF and XJ at this moment. This engine develops 270 hp and 600 Nm, and gives a bigger performance while consuming less than a V6 or V8 on petrol.
Mustang‘s arrival in Europe would not be a surprise, Chevrolet announced two months ago that will launch the new Camaro on the old continent in the year 2011. It remains to be seen if a diesel Mustang will not be able to eclipse sales of the Camaro that will be available exclusively on gasoline.
