Would you buy a Ford Mustang GT for P2.9M?

By Monico D. Mekaniko

After months of speculation, Ford finally unveiled – at least, officially – the iconic Mustang.

Filipinos caught a glimpse of a black Mustang at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) last March, whetting the appetites of local car aficionados.

Details about the Mustang would appear every now and then, especially in hardcore motoring websites and magazines, but Ford Group Philippines have been tight-lipped about pricing.

Until today (July 18), that is.

The Ford Mustang will be available in the Philippines in two variants: the 3.7-liter V6 Premium priced at P2.499 million and the 5.0-liter V8 GT Premium for the P2.899 million.

The V6 Premium's engine delivers 305 horsepower and 380 NM  while that of the V8 GT churns out 420hp and 529 NM of torque. Both variants come in six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.

Customer deliveries starts this September, according to Prudz Castillo, Ford Philippines' Assistant VP for Marketing.

The new Mustang also comes standard with a  4.2-inch LCD screen in the dashboard that displays driver information related to fuel economy and vehicle performance.

In the case of the V8 Mustang, you'll probably won't be so conscious about the former since you will be definitely be tempted to floor the gas pedal all the time.

The Mustang will be available in the following colors: Race Red, Performance White and Sterling Gray for the V6 Premium, and likewise Race Red and Performance White plus Black and Deep Impact Blue for the V8 GT Premium.

The Mustang is also the fourth vehicle Ford launched in the Philippines this year following the all-new Ranger, all-new Explorer 2.0L with Ecoboost and the all-new Focus.
