A video of the new Ford Mustang has been posted on Ford Malaysia’s Facebook page — could this be a hint to an approaching launch? We can’t help but think that it’s about time already, given that the Mustang was originally due to make its local debut in December last year.

Unfortunately, the social media post doesn’t reveal too much more that the obvious, and yes, it is cool to see some behind-the-scenes footage of the Mustang’s development. But with the order books being opened since June last year, it is surely about time Sime Darby Auto Connexion gets this car on dealership floors.

The last we heard of it, estimated prices for two variants of the Mustang were revealed — RM435k to RM450k was mentioned for the 2.3 litre EcoBoost variant, and RM550k to RM565k for the 5.0 litre V8. Fastback coupe and Convertible body styles were also said to be available.

The 2.3 litre Ecoboost turbo four-pot delivers 310 hp and 433 Nm, while the range-topping 5.0 litre naturally-aspirated V8 offers 435 hp and 541 Nm. The Ford distributors, SDAC, has also confirmed to us that only a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission will be available for our market — no mentions of the six-speed manual has been made yet.

As we continue to wait for further news from SDAC, feel free to check out our detailed preview of the Ford Mustang and full gallery of the left-hand drive model that was on display at the Publika shopping mall early last year.
