2015 Ford Mustang
The 2015 Ford Mustang has officially broken free from the stable; and despite some early news leaks-it still stirred up plenty of excitement.
For its 50th anniversary, the 2015 Mustang bucks some of its storied heritage for modern day appeal. Big news includes the arrival of an independent rear suspension, replacing the live-axle setup from previous generations; and the introduction of Ford’s EcoBoost turbo four cylinder engine to the lineup. Projected output is around 305 horsepower from the 2.3 liter I-4.
Other notworthy changes are more obvious, as the Mustang’s styling has taken a progressive leap forward, in both its fastback coupe… and convertible body styles.
Last year’s V-6 and V-8 engines return, now slightly tweaked for better fuel economy and efficiency.
Ford has plans for this Mustang to be a true world car, as they’ve announced several new markets around the globe, including Australia, the U.K., and Japan.
Ford has sold more than 9 million Mustangs in the car’s 50-year history. Look for this highly-anticipated ride to hit dealer showrooms in late 2014. And that’ll do it for this week’s Motornews.
