Ford will build the 2016 RHD Mustang

American carmaker Ford declared that they plan to terminate its local manufacturing operations starting with the 16th of October 2016. This news affected the automotive industry in general in Australia, but as it turns out, this is actually the end of the production of the rear-wheel drive Falcon. In a way, the carmaker will try to make up for everything by preparing to release the next generation model, the new Mustang. The global vice president of sales and marketing, Jim Farley will actually go to Australia on the 13th of August only to make an official statement regarding the return of the Mustang name plant. This will come in the same time he Falcon will disappear. In the late 1960s, American Ford has introduced the Mustang in Australia as a right-hand drive car. The carmaker has also turned a small number of cars between 2001 and 2003 to complete with the Holden Monaro. The starting price was established at $90.000, but the specialists managed to sell only 400 cars. The 2015 Mustang will have a starting price of $50.000. Now, in the US, the car has a starting price of $22.200 when it comes to the V6 unit capable of generating 305 horsepower. There is also a GT V8 unit capable of generating 420 horsepower and the price for this one was established at $29.625. The British market will get a version equipped with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and Australia will get a V6 and V8 unit, most probably. These are all the details we have for now on the model.
