Ford’s all-new Mustang will reportedly be around “200 to 300 pounds heavier” (91-137kg) than its predecessor, according to a top aftermarket Ford tuner in the US.

As a trusted tuner, Steeda Autosports has been given early access to the new pony car. In the lead-up to the new Mustang's sales launch, Steeda has used its blog to outline the challenges in developing enhancements for new models.

According to a recent entry on the Steeda website, one hurdle will be the new Mustang’s weight gain - details readily available to partners, but yet to be publicised by Ford itself.

“Our work is cut out for us because, unbeknownst to most Mustang aficionados (and not “officially” confirmed by Ford for obvious reasons), the 2015 Mustang ended up gaining 200-300 pounds in this remake,” Steeda said.

“With weight being the ‘enemy of performance’, there are plenty of challenges needed to ensure that the 2015 iteration of America’s favourite Pony Car isn’t left at the starting line spinning its wheels against the competition.”

Steeda says it will “pay particular attention to weight-savings” for the 2015 Mustang, although the group stops short of revealing exactly where it plans to shed kilograms on the new model.

Among Steeda’s planned modification options are suspension enhancements, chassis stiffening components and engine modifications, and the group is preparing to take delivery of four 2015 Mustangs soon to test the new components before offering them for sale.

The 2015 Ford Mustang will hit the American market from September this year, while Australian customers will have to wait until late 2015.
