The Legendary Ford Mustang Gets New Carbonized Grey Color
02/08/21

BANGKOK, Thailand, 2 August 2021 - Ford Thailand today introduced a new bold and athletic color choice of Carbonized Grey to the legendary Ford Mustang. The world’s best-selling sport car is available in two engine variants: the 5.0L V8 GT Coupe Performance Pack and 2.3L EcoBoost Coupe Performance Pack.

The popular Ford Mustang features a powerful engine, high-speed performance, advanced driver-assistance technologies and more customization options tailored to customers. With a sleeker and more athletic look, the iconic muscle car is powered by an enhanced 5.0L V8 engine or 2.3L EcoBoost, each combined to a 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifter.

“Ford Mustang continues to increase in popularity amongst Thais since it was first launched in 2018. We are proud to present the legendary American icon with new bold and exciting color choice of Carbonized Grey to the market,” said Wichit Wongwatthanakan, managing director, Ford Thailand. “This Ford Mustang retains its iconic high performance and athletic design which deserves the title of the world's best-selling sports coupe for six straight years.”

Athletic style
Both Mustang variants are equipped with the Performance Pack that includes limited-slip differential, to match the Mustang’s fun-to-drive character, even driving on curves. Mustang’s dramatic rear-end design is further enhanced with a re-modelled bumper and diffuser element, accommodating standard quad-tailpipes for the 5.0L V8 model. In addition, a spoiler is standard for GT models.

Mustang’s daytime running lights, indicators and iconic three-dimensional tri-bar tail lights all feature LED technology as standard. The front headlight bezels also have been restyled to reflect the trapezoidal shape of the upper grille.

Unmatched performance
Mustang’s 5.0L V8 engine has been developed to deliver great power and a high rev-limit. Peak power of 449 PS at 7,000 RPM and 529 Nm of torque at 4,600 RPM is supported by the introduction of Ford’s dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection system. For a more fuel-efficient option, the 2.3L EcoBoost engine delivers peak power of 290 PS at 5,400 RPM and 441 Nm of torque at 3,000 RPM.

Electronic Line Lock that helps the driver to spin the rear wheels and warm the tyres while stationary for drag strip, is a standard offer on both 2.3L and 5.0L V8 GT Coupe variants.

Ford Mustang offers six driving modes to help drivers match electronic stability control, throttle response, automatic gear-shift patterns, steering and Active Valve Performance Exhaust settings to the driving scenario.

  • Normal Mode provides perfect balance between comfortability and response to deliver the most engaging driving experience yet.
  • Sports Mode improves throttle response and steering system while shifting up to a higher gear which enables drivers to experience driving on curves at full performance.
  • Track Mode provides more of a performance driving experience as the engine responds directly to driver’s input and takes on a more powerful tone. The electronic stability control will be inactivated to accelerate throttle response.
  • Snow/Wet Mode gives a confident handling and a direct connection to the road in wet or slippery conditions by slowing down the throttle response and activating traction control while delivering full performance of Mustang.   
  • ‘Drag Strip Mode’ optimizes performance for maximum acceleration, standing starts and quarter-mile performance at dedicated drag racing strips
  • ‘My Mode’ enables drivers to select their own preferred settings for performance, dynamics and exhaust sound.

Ford Mustang comes with an elevated driving experience with controller switches on the steering wheel, enabling drivers to adjust steering dynamics with three different modes including:

  • Comfort mode softens the weight of steering which helps reduce fatigue from controlling the steering wheel after a long period, making it suitable for long-distance driving.
  • Normal mode is the perfect fit for driving in daily life.
  • Sport mode makes the steering heavier, enhancing confidence during high-speed runs.

Equipped with the neighbor-friendly Quiet Mode, Ford Mustang enables drivers to set up and manage the volume of the exhaust system at any time of the day to reduce the disturbance to neighbors and surrounding communities when starting the engine, especially from the powerful 5.0L V8 engine in the early morning.

Comfortable interior
Ford Mustang offers distinguished interior features, including soft-touch materials and a 12.4-inch all-digital instrument cluster displaying information relevant to each driving mode for a superior occupant experience. Furthermore, the video-game-like animation will appear on the 12.4-inch cluster when deploying the Electronic Line Lock.

Ford Mustang also features SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system with smartphone connectivity, Bang & Olufsen premium audio system with 12 speakers offering outstanding tonality for music lovers, navigation, climate functions with conversational voice commands and by touching on the central 8-inch touch screen. The system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™.

Smart technologies for safety and convenience
Ford Mustang is packed with various advanced driver assistance technologies including Pre-Collision Assist - combining the Inter-Urban Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection and Vehicle Detection designed to lessen the severity and reduce the vehicle and pedestrian collision rate, Lane Keeping System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Auto Hight Beam Control.

Ford Mustang will be available in four colors including Twist Orange, Velocity Blue, Race Red, and the newest hue, Carbonized Grey. Official pricing for the two Mustang variants are:

  • Mustang 5.0L V8 GT Coupe Performance Pack - Bt. 4,799,000
  • Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost Coupe Performance Pack - Bt. 3,599,000

The Mustang is available for bookings at 7 Ford Mustang authorized dealerships in Bangkok and selected provinces across the country.

Mustang customers will receive the value and convenient ‘Ford 5 Years Premium Care’ package covering warranty up to 5 years, free 5-years labour fee and spare parts for annual checks with 24-hour roadside assistance for 5 years.
