2015 Ford Mustang spy shots
The first one thousand nextgeneration Mustangs built will be 2014.5 model year cars, seemingly.
Why? Because the very first Mustang was a 1964.5 version, and that is its 50th anniversary.
What does it mean, if this proves accurate?
For the unlucky who cannot get
in on one of those instantclassic 2014.5 versions, worry not: there aren't any functionality upgrades for the 50th anniversary edition.
That is not to say the entire Mustang range will not find a performance upgrade, with a brand new turbo 2.3liter fourcylinder anticipated and an upgraded 5.0liter V-8.
The upgrades for the new Mustang, an S550 to all the hard-core enthusiasts, will be some of the very critical within the nameplate's history. And maybe of more significance is that the very fact the car will be marketed internationally, empowering muscle car fans from all over to try a car that's brought generations of gearheads much delight.
The spy video, courtesy of the people at Mustang 6G, verifies that the 2015 Mustang will be similar in dimensions to the present car but with a lower profile and what seems to be a somewhat wider path. A fifthgeneration Mustang in blue is seen driving alongside the image, offering a great comparison.
Anticipate the powerful retro cues to be toned down, because this will be the first truly international Mustang. As is reported previously, the auto's styling should keep distinctive Mustang cues but with some influences from Ford's Evos notion from
2011. Under its sheet metal is a brand-new platform with an independent suspension setup in the back as opposed to the Mustang's conventional live axle. A lighter curb weight and more powerful engines should ensure better performance than the present 'Stang.
A new turbocharged 2.3liter fourcylinder version is also expected, maybe to fill the gap between the base Mustang and Mustang GT and supply an alternative for customers in markets (read Europe) where fuel costs are considerably greater than here in the U.S.
We've also noticed that a Shelby GT-350 and Mach 1 may finally join up with the lineup, too.
The subsequent summer first sales should begin.
