New Zealand-bound Mustangs roll down the line

New Zealand-bound Mustangs roll down the line

RH-Drive-Production-Begins-lo-resThe first right-hand drive Ford Mustangs destined for New Zealand are in production at Flatrock Assembly Plant in Michigan, North America.

Meanwhile, the number of pre-sold New Mustangs in New Zealand has climbed to 425 from an initial order bank of 300 in May.

Ford New Zealand anticipated delivering the first shipment of cars to waiting customers in November and it has secured extra supply to meet the greater than expected demand.

The New Ford Mustang has a recommended RRP starting at $56,990 for the six-speed automatic transmission Fastback, which features a high-performance 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine. The range topper is the six-speed automatic GT 5.0-litre V8 Convertible, which has an RRP of $76,990.

Race Red is still the most popular Mustang colour choice with Kiwi buyers but with the additional 100-plus orders, Magnetic is now only four vehicles behind.

New Zealand’s third colour preference remains Ruby Red, followed by Deep Impact Blue in fourth. And changing places, Shadow Black has overtaken Oxford White to take fifth place.

The new Mustang features some innovative technologies providing drivers with enhanced information, control, and connectivity when they want it. It will feature high levels of connectivity via Ford’s SYNC2 system. Ford’s advanced infotainment system features a high-resolution, 8-inch colour touch screen and advanced voice control for easier access to audio, navigation, climate control and compatible mobile phones.
