Ford has definitely been preparing some serious come backs and redesigns when it comes to 2020. One of them has been the Ford Mustang, known as one of the best-selling and most popular American sports cars. Moreover, the company is also planning to introduce its hybrid version and it will be their first hybrid pony car ever. The market of electrified cars has been hugely popular lately due to its eco-friendly and fuel-efficient models. Here is what we know so far about new 2020 Ford Mustang.
Both the regular and the hybrid version of the 2020 Ford Mustang will wear a similar exterior design and keep most of that traditional and recognizable pony features. The upcoming Mustang will arrive as a sports coupe that should be riding on an advanced rear-wheel platform and save some weight. However, the hybrid model might not appear lighter due to that hybrid system under the hood. Be that as it may, the new Mustang will once again show why it has been the most popular sports car among the fans for so many years. When it comes to exterior, this coupe might come with a shorter front end, but much sportier and a bit aggressive. You will notice its redesigned grille and modern LED headlights. It will definitely appear more stylish than its predecessor.
The interior of the 2020 Ford Mustang should also reveal a sporty cabin that will be well-equipped and wear lots of luxurious details. The company will use some fine leather on the seats and the steering wheel, but besides the overall comfort, you can expect some serious upgrades in terms of technology and safety. A larger infotainment touch-screen will be found in the center console and it will provide some of the latest high-tech options such as navigation, climate control, HD radio, audio system, Wi-Fi, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. When it comes to safety systems and driver assist features, you will find airbags, automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera, lane keep assist and others.

Things probably won’t change under the hood of the 2020 Ford Mustang which will probably offer those current options. One of them is the well-known 2.3-liter turbo-four while the other uses a 5.0-liter V8. A ten-speed automatic transmission will be optional. However, the fans are probably anticipating its Hybrid version that will combine that 2.3-liter turbo-four with an electric motor as it has been the case with its cousin the Ford Focus RS. However, the new Mustang Hybrid should deliver more power than that mild-hybrid system of the 2020 Focus so it is expected to hit more than 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The new Mustang could also share its powertrain with the upcoming Ford F-150 Hybrid.
