Ford has unveiled the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang, which now has a new more modern design as part of Ford’s attempts to make it appeal to a more global audience. Ford is even debuting the new Mustang simultaneously today around the world in six cities.
“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.”
The 2015 Ford Mustang gets a new shape that signals the return of the fastback design, giving it a much sleeker profile than before. The 2015 Mustang features a lower, wider stance with a reduction in roof height, and wider rear fenders and track. From the front it’s clear that some of the Evos concept has filtered down into the Mustang with its “shark-bite” front fascia and trapezoidal grille.
Inside the retro theme still exists, but new modern touches have been added like the Ford SYNC system and a push-button start system. The 2015 Mustang also gets new technology like Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert and adaptive cruise control.
Under the hood the 2015 Mustang is going to launch with a 2.3L four-cylinder, 3.7L V6 and a 5.0L V8. The 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine packs 305 horsepower and 300 lb-ft. of torque, while the 3.7L V6 has 300 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. The Mustang GT’s 5.0L V8 features upgraded valvetrain and cylinder heads to give it more than 420 horsepower and 390 lb-ft. of torque.
Ford says the 2015 Mustang will be the most nimble Mustang ever, which can largely be attributed to a new integral-link independent rear suspension. The front suspension is also new and a new perimeter subframe helps to stiffen the structure while reducing mass, providing a better foundation for more predictable wheel control that benefits handling, steering and ride. The 2015 Mustang is also expected to be around 200 pounds lighter.
The 2015 Ford Mustang is expected to arrive late next year.
