Iconic, sharp, and internationally recognized are descriptors applicable to both the Ford Mustang and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Although man and machine are renowned in their own right, they also make an unstoppable, dynamic duo. So when Johnson turned up to introduce the all-new Mustang on January 17, the only person who was shocked to see the two together was Marlene Rodriguez – an Army combat veteran who Johnson surprised with her own Mustang. The surprise debut was captured and shared across Johnson’s social media channels.
“The new Mustang is our best ever, based on more than 50 years as one of the iconic sports cars in America and now, the world,” Joe Hinrichs, president of The Americas, said.
The new Mustang features a slew of upgrades, such as customizable design and technology changes, power-packing engines and MagneRide™ suspension technology. Ford’s first 12-inch, all-digital LCD screen takes center stage in the Mustang’s dashboard, offering a variety of touch-screen capabilities that go so far as engine note customization; a spectrum of Ford driver-assist technology also makes its first appearance in the best-selling sports coupe, with elements like Pre-Collision Assist with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist and distance alert.
