Unveiled at the end of 2013, the sixth generation Ford Mustang is now getting ready to be updated, as a facelifted version is already in the pipeline.
Besides the usual exterior tweaks that will include an updated grille, different lighting units on both ends and modified front and rear bumpers, joined by possible trim mods inside, the popular muscle car will share an important feature with the Chevrolet Camaro: a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
Expected to show its fresh face sometime in 2018, according to Autocar, the Ford Mustang will retain its 2.3-liter EcoBoost and 5.0-liter V8 engines, along with the 3.7-liter V6 that is offered in the US, and the most probable scenario is that the new transmission will be offered as an option to the V8.
Sources within the Michigan-based giant state that the gearbox will be offered in the USA, but have yet to confirm whether it will be launched in Europe too.
Word on the street has it that Ford will probably make an announcement of the facelifted Mustang at either the 2016 LA Auto Show next month, or at the 2017 Detroit Motor Show in January.
