With the market moving over to smaller cars, anyone seen driving a large car may be seen as a gas-guzzling hog. As a result FoMoCo will do its best to make the next-generation Ford Mustang to look smaller.
“We have a car which I think is more suitable for the times than the Challenger and the Camaro,” said Ford Motor’s North American design director, Peter Horbury. “Especially the Challenger “” it is a huge car when you see it on the road.”
Horbury said that size wise, the 2010 Ford Mustang remains the same in overall length and width as the 2008 model. However, cleverness in design will give off an illusion of a smaller car.
Ford is even rumored to add its 3.5 liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 to the 2010 Mustang.
The redesigned and re-engineered model is expected to go on sale early next year.
