2014 Mustang Will Depart from Current Retro Design


The next-generation Mustang, that's set to debut in 2013 as a 2014 model and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic American sports car will leave behind its current styling in favor of a bold new direction says Ford‘s global design boss. In a recent interview with Mustangs Daily at the launch of the new Focus ST at the Paris Auto Show, global design head Jay Mays hinted at the progressive new styling planned for the "pretty cool" new Mustang.

"It can't lose the Mustang DNA, but it will have to signal that Mustang has another 50 years of life left in it," he said. "In order to do that we're going to have to take a bit more of a stretch with the car."

Mays wouldn't comment further, but did say the Mustang, like the F-150, would retain its own styling direction apart from the rest of the global vehicle lineup.

Hinting at a more future-proof design, it's also believed the 2014 Mustang will feature an independent rear suspension that would take the already best-in-class package to a whole new level.
