Ford Mustang UK options explored

By Peter Chubb - May 22, 2013

While it may not be practical considering how much the price of fuel costs in the UK, the demand for the Ford Mustang has been pretty high, because there’s nothing better than hearing the roar from that powerful engine. However, the Ford Mustang UK options are a little disappointing because no new models are being sold in the country, and so it’s left to the auction sites to get our fix of this most iconic muscle car.

Having explored your options for owning a Ford Mustang in the UK there are still plenty of places where you can visit in order to find the right one, such as eBay Motors, Auto Trader, Piston Heads, Gumtree and Car and Classic UK.

However, if you are looking for a new Ford Mustang, then your options are limited, that is until some time in 2014, as Ford has said that the UK version of the next-generation Mustang will be made available to them from next year. However, as you would expect it does come with one major compromise, and that is because the 3.5-litre V6 EcoBoost as well as a V8 lump will not make it across the pond for obvious reasons.

Instead the Ford Mustang for UK drivers will have to make do with a 2.3-litre four-cylinder EcoBoost engine. That’s not the only bad news, as those of you in the UK planning on owning the next-generation Mustang will have to pay the price as well, as the Ford Mustang UK price is expected to be in the region of £30,000 and £50,000, which is far more than they will pay in the US.

To put some perspective on this, the 2005 model sold in the US for $22,000, which is the equivalent of £14,000. Okay, so we know that the new model will cost more and the fact that taxes are higher in the UK, but we just hope there is not a staggering price difference.
