Ford Interceptor (Mustang sedan) comes to life


We can’t seem to find the Mustang wagon, but the blue oval of a carmaker has officially unveiled a sedan based on everyone’s favorite pony car. The Ford Interceptor concept is squarely targeted at the segment of the market currently occupied by the Chrysler 300, but because it’s Mustang-based, it’s got quite a performance side to it as well.

To be showcased at the Detroit Auto Show, the Interceptor concept stretches out the Mustang platform, tosses in a couple of extra doors, and comes powered by a powerful 5.0L V8 Cammer engine good for 400 horsepower. This rear-wheel-drive performance sedan can even run on E-85 ethanol if you want.

Many of its styling cues are reminiscent of the Chrysler 300, like the oversized wheels (22-inchers here, though they probably won’t make it to the production model) and the short windows on the sides. Other stuff you’ll find on this car with “power and attitude” include four-point seatbelts, inflatable rear belts, and a solid rear axle. It’s pretty long too with an overall length of 201.6 inches and a wheelbase of 120.8 inches.
