By now, you’ve probably heard that Ford unveiled its sixth-generation Mustang pony car today in several cities across the world. Here’s what else you need to know.
Ford is ushering its retro-styled ‘Stang out of the building and the world is left looking at a car that, in many ways, is a big departure from ponies past.
Automatic and manual transmission versions both come with updates. Slushbox buyers will find that “manually” picking shift points doesn’t involve pressing up and down buttons on the shift lever anymore and thank goodness for that. The new car comes with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel.
Things are getting better if you’re trained to operate a third pedal, too. Ford says it reworked the six-speed stick to offer smoother shifts.
