2013 Mustang to Get Shelby GT500 Styling

2011 LA Auto Show

The 2013 Mustang will be receiving an exterior facelift due to customers' complaints about some styling traits.

A new report from MustangsDaily.com is suggesting that Ford will soon be unveiling a mid-cycle refresh of the current Mustang. The sources say that the 2013 Mustang will receive a variety of exterior styling changes taken directly from the current Shelby GT500. This will likely include the larger, protruding upper grille a and smaller, rounder lower grille. Another addition will be LED lights that will most likely be used for the fog lights on the lower fascia.

The insiders stated that Ford listened to customers who complained about the way the rear taillights were designed for 2010. They will now run straight across the back instead of angling towards the front. Under the hood, the powertrains will remain the same for 2013, which include a 5.0-liter V8 and 3.7-liter V6. Ford will also be giving an increase of stallions to the Mustang GT to be more on the level of the Camaro SS. No word yet on horsepower figures for the GT, but the word is somewhere around the 425hp. The 2013 Ford Mustang will be making its debut at the LA Auto Show in November.
