2010 Ford Mustang Taillight Revealed

2010 Ford Mustang taillight

Ford left Mustang fans worldwide hanging yesterday with a delay in the 2010 Mustang teaser image release, but we were able to grab hold of the new pony car’s latest sexy shot and make sure you got your eyes on this one.  After seeing a limited amount of exterior photos (the hood and front fender), we finally get our sights set on the rear of the 2010 Mustang. From this photograph’s perspective, we can see the updated rear end, the new ducktail spoiler, and the smoothed taillight bezel. The retro three-pillar design is still present, but the assembly seems to be styled to fit more in line with the rear bumper. With just over a week until the official debut at the LA Auto Show, we are excited to see the unveiling. Stay tuned, as we’ll bring you some of the hottest official images available and quite possibly, a behind-the-scenes look from the Show.

Side View of the 2010 Mustang Interior

Ford’s weekly dispensing of 2010 Mustang teaser images have shown us the interior profile from the driver’s side, the climate controls just above the center console, a good look at the dash, as well as the seats of the soon-to-be pony car.  This week’s shot provides a passenger side profile of the new Ford Mustang’s interior and a composite look at the rest of the offerings in the center console.  From what we can tell, it seems that the entertainment portion of the console center seems to occupy a lot of space and is integrated into the lower section sans seams (or at least visible ones).  This integration could be seen as a slick OEM feature, but could potentially throw a curve to those who commonly seek aftermarket head units (audio, video, navigation) to replace their stock equipment.  It’s tough to tell for sure from the angle, so we are left counting the few short weeks until the official debut from Ford.

Cat out of the Bag: 2010 Ford Mustang by Hot Wheels

2010 Ford Mustang by Hot Wheels

Could Hot Wheels have accidentally stripped all the red tape off the 2010 Ford Mustang before the official debut at the LA Auto Show? Just recently, the 1:64 scale replica of the new Mustang GT popped up on eBay, fully detailed in what appears to be a design consistent with all the teaser images Ford has been spoon-feeding us these past several weeks. It even has the power dome hood! The sanctioned unveiling is just a few weeks out and tomorrow, Ford will give us another glimpse of the 2010 Mustang. Maybe we’ll get to see if this die cast version of the Mustang is an accurate rendition or not.

2010 Ford Mustang Center Console and Climate Control

2010 Ford Mustang Shifter & Console

So far, Ford has shown us the front seats, the dash, and the shifter knob of the 2010 Mustang–now we get to see just a little more of the interior.  This week’s teaser gives us a full perspective of the center console and the lower accessory controls in the new pony car.  What we have here is a definite move up in class with some elegant chrome trim (of what could be the next IUP package…or could be standard) around the shifter bezel as well as the accessory knobs.  The climate control system appears to have been updated to a push-button setup and also allows for two distinct climate zones for the Mustang’s front occupants.  The traction control button also gets a relocation downward, more adjacent to the shifter.  These changes aren’t watershed by any means, but the true enthusiasts know exactly what is evolving.  The true rendition will solidify all of our past teasings and suppositions in just a few weeks, at the LA Auto Show.

2010 Ford Mustang Hood Shot

Ford has thrown us another basted bone this week with a shot of the 2010 Mustang hood.  The lines and edges hint at the new Mustang having a very recognizable form we have seen before. The 2010 Mustang hood certainly has some distinguished features found in past race-ready Ford Mustangs.  Back in 2000, Ford’s SVT division released the Cobra R, and one of the most prominent features on this snake was its power dome hood.  The 2010 Mustang hood seems to have inherited some of these hot features from the 2000 Cobra R.  The hood, back in 2000, was taller than the normal Cobra hood and had gills that improved heat dissipation. This week’s power dome shot is a very cool teaser image that Ford has baited us with.  Tying in popular traits from the SN95 era and its glory is a very cool move!

2010 Mustang Spotted Shopping

With all the teasers from Ford and all the spy shots we’ve brought to you in the past, we’re excited to show you what appears to be a 2010 Ford Mustang prototype parked at a shopping mall. Posed for the lens sans camo, this next-gen S197 Mustang brings all the hints of edginess and ebb to fruition in broad daylight. The updated front and rear are completely visible now on this prototype, so it shores up some of the questions everyone has been tossing around about what is happening to which piece. Take a good look at the shots we have in store for you–the LA Auto Show isn’t too far, so we can see just how close the prototype comes to production!

Grab ‘n Go – the 2010 Mustang Shifter

2010 Ford Mustang shifter

This week, Ford shows us yet another segment of the 2010 Mustang interior.  Last week, we saw the new Mustang dash and cluster, and now, we get a bit of a zoomed look of what was blacked out in the prior image.  This 2010 Mustang shifter is definitely the highest class gear changer we have seen in the Mustang straight from the factory line.  Its unique polished metal finish gives it an aura of luxury inside the already posh S197 interior of today.  Also, it could just be the angle of the shot, but we were noticing that the actual shifter itself seems shortened a bit.  If so, this could be the aftermarket influencing the market, given the demand for short-throw shifters by many Mustang fans.  We just have one word of caution on a hot, sunny day: bring a cloth to cover the handle.  Today’s aftermarket shifter knob owners know this story all too well.
