Little by little the Ford Mustang it has had to give up some historical features to adapt to new trends. A good example is the disappearance of the V6 engine, as well as the abandonment of the rigid rear axle. But everything indicates that soon, with the next generation, we will see the greatest technical revolution in its history. Sure, not counting the Make. ..
Jim owens, Mustang brand manager made the following statement in an interview conceived of Ford Authority: “Well, as you know, the Challenger has all-wheel drive. We are always looking for different possibilities to improve performance, but we have nothing to announce at the moment ”, the executive pointed out.
Without a doubt, it is a declaration that leaves many doubts. Since this implies that the Ford Mustang could receive a all-wheel drive system. Never in history has this happened and the wild colt has always been a rear-drive sports car.
The advantage of an all-wheel drive car lies in a better ability to put the paper on the ground, as well as greater stability. Not for nothing, legends like Mitsubishi evo, Subaru WRX STI o Audi Quattro they are famous for this configuration (even Porsche and BMW have opted for this technical solution).
This does not mean that all Mustangs will have all-wheel drive but only some versions. Maybe you're thinking of him Shelby GT500, but everything indicates that it will actually be the already confirmed Hybrid mustang the one in charge of having this system.
Do not forget, that the Mustang will be based on the Explorer / Aviator platform, which already has its own plug-in hybrid version where the front wheels are driven by the electric drive. Therefore, the most logical thing is that the pony car adopts this system. So at least we could hope 400 horses of strength. Although they could be more.
However, this is still speculation, so we would have to wait a bit to get to know the new generation of what promises to be the most sophisticated Mustang in history.
