The 2020 Ford Mustang is available with three engines and two body styles, with prices ranging from $50,990 before on-road costs for the High Performance coupe to $99,980 before on-road costs for the R-Spec coupe.
This generation of Mustang – introduced in 2015 – is the first to be built in right-hand drive instead of converted locally.
It was a wise move, as the Mustang quickly snatched the title of Australia’s best-selling sports car and has yet to relinquish it.
