An all-new Ford Mustang isn't expected to debut in 2014 as a 2015 model, but unfortunately that is still about three years away. In the meantime it's being reported that the Mustang will get a facelift for the 2013 model year.

The current Mustang will get a revised face that should keep it fresh until the all-new Mustang arrives. The front-end borrow styling cues from the Shelby GT500, like the protruding upper grille and LED lights. The rear taillights are also expected to get a new flat design.

The current 3.7L V6 and 5.0L V8 engines will remain, but are expected to get slightly more power to keep the Mustang competitive with the Chevy Camaro. The 2013 Shelby GT500 is also expected to get a boost in horsepower, which could be close to 600 horsepower.

Although the revised Mustang will be for the 2013 model year, we could get our first preview at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
