We recently reported that the next-generation Ford Mustang won’t be bowing in until the 2014 model year, which means the current generation, and its aging platform, will have to soldier on for at least another year.

However, as we saw in recent spy shots, a facelifted version is due in the interim. This facelifted Mustang is scheduled to arrive as a 2013 model, and the good news is that we'll see it unveiled this week at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show.

This latest teaser reveals some of the details of the facelifted car.

A revised front-end will be key to keeping the Mustang popular for another year, with influences from its Shelby GT500 cousin expected to feature. Things like a protruding upper grille and a smaller lower intake are expected, as is LED detailing. The teaser image also reveals that the tail-lights are getting some changes as well.

As for the powertrain lineup, the current 3.7-liter V-6 and 5.0-liter V-8 will remain, though they will likely produce slightly more power than their respective 305 and 412 horsepower outputs.

Note, many of the changes featuring in this facelift will apply for the Shelby Mustang GT500 as well, which we previously reported would get a kick in horsepower to somewhere between 570 and 620 horsepower.

Stay tuned for more info on the 2013 Ford Mustang as its breaks by following our dedicated Los Angeles Auto Show page.

Thanks B for sending in the tip!

  1. The "more power" will probably come in the way by using direct injection.

    Bad stuff?

     
  2. Nah, they're only bumping it up about 13 hp to 425. That can be done via software tweaks.
