Also known as the “Mustang II”, the latest Ford Mustang 2.3 Ecoboost Fastback comes from the sixth-generation model of the Ecoboost Fastback. This coupe’s front end draws inspiration from Ford’s Evos concept featured at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2011.
With dimensions of 4,783mm long and 1,915mm wide, this Mustang II packs with aggressive exterior styling, numerous performance settings and technological features inside.
The dual-pipe exhaust tip gives an athletic exclusivity to the rear Mustang’s rear-end while the famous “vertical bar” style taillights use LED lights that illuminate sequentially when being used as turn signals.
Comfort Features and Key Specifications
With an increased body width and a larger cabin similar to the Ford GT, the Ford Mustang 2.3 Ecoboost Fastback interior body resembles an airplane cockpit, giving more room at the back for rear passengers. A metal tag on the dashboard bears the Ford Mustang “Running Horse” insignia.
It also gets comfortable and classy with the Recaro leather seats for both driver and front passenger. The changeable ambient lighting is a cool feature similar to the one found in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
