Ford’s all-new Mustang may not be as heavy as first thought, according to the latest round of leaked technical information.

Enthusiast site Mustang6G has posted what it claims is a ‘dealer manual’ for the new model, with weight measurements somewhat less than those leaked earlier this month.

The Mustang’s weight-gain was initially believed to be as much as “200 to 300 pounds” (91-137kg), but the dealer manual points to a less dramatic increase.

A base model coupe equipped with the V6 engine and manual transmission could weigh 3526 pounds (1604kg), which is a mere 11kg heavier than the outgoing model.

The same model with automatic transmission could be a barely-noticeable 2.7kg heavier.

Figures for the convertible show a similar story in the dealer manual, with a weight-gain of 11kg for the manual and an insignificant 900 grams for the automatic.

Opting for the GT package with 5.0 litre V8 engine lifts weight to 3704 pounds (1685kg) with the manual transmission - 39kg heavier than its predecessor – or 3727 (1696kg) pounds for the automatic, meaning an extra 24kg to lug around.

The V8 convertible with manual transmission is the porkiest of them all with a weight-gain of 41kg, while the automatic model is 27kg heavier.

Weight figures for the four-cylinder EcoBoost-powered Mustang have also been revealed in the dealer manual, with weights for the coupe believed to be 1600kg for the manual and 1598kg for the automatic, while the convertible will weight 1657kg and 1666kg respectively.

Pricing in the US starts at US$24,425 (AU$25,979) for the entry-level V6 with manual transmission, rising to US$25,995 (AU$27,649) for the EcoBoost model and US$32,925 (AU$35,020) for the GT V8.

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