Ford is Almost Done with the Design of the 2014 Mustang

The Ford Mustang is going to get a complete redesign for 2014 and it’s being reported that the styling for the next Mustang is “being locked down.”

Ford’s design chief J Mays recently stated in an interview that the next Mustang, which arrives to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Mustang, will not be an evolution of today’s retro Mustang.

According to Mays the next Mustang will not follow the retro inspired designs of the 2005 and 2010 Mustangs. The next-generation will follow a different road.

He stated, “The challenge or the opportunity for 2014 with a 50th anniversary car is to not just look back over your shoulder, but to try to win all of the Mustang faithful yet bring the brand forward as well. It has to look like a Mustang. But you go down a list of things that might or might not be necessary to make the car look like a Mustang.

It’s been reported that the next Mustang will be smaller and made to appeal to buyers in Europe in addition to North America. It’s also been rumored that the next Mustang will get a turbocharged four-cylinder engine
