“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, global product development. “The visceral look, sound and performance of Mustang resonates with people, even if they’ve never driven one. Mustang is definitely more than just a car – it is the heart and soul of Ford.”
April 17, 2014, marks the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the original Ford Mustang and each 2015 model celebrates the milestone with a badge on the instrument panel that includes the galloping pony logo and the words “Mustang – Since 1964.” Mustang will continue to be built in the United States at Flat Rock Assembly Plant.
The new design of both Mustang fastback and convertible evokes the essential character of the brand, retaining key design elements. The long sculpted hood and short rear deck have now a contemporary execution. A lower, wider stance with a reduction in roof height, and wider rear fenders and track make the new Mustang more modern. The return of Mustang fastback with a sleeker profile is enabled by more steeply sloped windshield and rear glass. Three-dimensional, tri-bar taillamps with sequential turn signals got introduced in the 2015 Ford Mustang. The contemporary execution of the signature shark-bite front fascia and trapezoidal grille complete the new look.
The upgraded V6 and V8 are joined by an all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that brings state-of-the-art technology to Mustang. The Mustang EcoBoost engine uses direct injection, variable cam timing and turbocharging to deliver plenty of usable performance and projected segment-leading fuel efficiency. A unique intake manifold and turbocharger housing enable it to deliver the performance Mustang drivers expect with output projected at more than 305 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque.
Mustang GT continues with the latest edition of the throaty 5.0-liter V8, now featuring an upgraded valvetrain and cylinder heads that yield more than 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. A new intake manifold improves low-speed breathing for better fuel economy, idle stability and emissions.
You still have to wait a year to get a new 2015 Ford Mustang.
