After a year of waiting and anticipating, this all-new 7th-generation Ford Mustang is finally ready to be driven.

And since a new Mustang is kind of a big deal, MotorWeek sent both of us to Pasadena, California where Ford invited us to drive both their EcoBoost and GT models.

Now enjoy some voice over while we rock, paper, scissors for first dibs.

Let’s start off with the Mustang’s new looks. Styling isn’t radically different on the outside but the sheet metal is more chiseled than last-gen. All models have new tri-bar headlights and a unique front end, with the GT sporting larger but still very functional grille openings. The biggest departure is the rear end which sees a new concave design that integrates the traditional tri-bar tail lamps.

So that’s how it looks, let’s see how it drives.
