While the Mustang has generally been focused on buyers in the United States, the next generation model will be a world car that will accommodate tastes from a variety of markets.

Ford is planning to make a dramatic change for the next generation Mustang that will see a sleeker and sportier design than buyers have been used to in the past. While the Mustang has generally been focused on buyers in the United States, the next generation model will be a world car that will accommodate tastes from a variety of markets.

The Evos Concept that appeared at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year tentatively previewed the curvier look of the new Mustang. However, we are assured the long hood and short deck profile will remain in tact.

The cropped down rendering you see above was published by Inside Line and sources within Ford have apparently confirmed that it is pretty close to what the model will look like. You can see the full version by clicking on the image.

The engine bay will once again house the current 5.0-liter V8 unit from the current model, but the V6 option may have to make way for a more efficient turbocharged four-cylinder unit. Meanwhile, the straight axle rear end suspension setup which has long been associated with the Mustang series is set to be replaced with an independent setup. This will improve the driving dynamics of the model and will entice the more demanding European customers.

Ford is expected to unveil the new generation Mustang at the 2014 New York Auto Show.
