Earlier today we brought the first official pictures and details of the new 2015 Ford Mustang. Now that the dust has somewhat settled on it and your eyes are adjusted to the new look, it is probably a good time to see the car in more details, watch a couple of videos of it, and maybe even play with its online configurator. If you haven’t already decided if you’re going to love or hate the new Mustang, check this out first.
The highlights of the 2015 Ford Mustang in terms of design include a lower, wider stance with a reduction in roof height, and wider rear fenders and track; the return of Mustang fastback with a sleeker profile enabled by more steeply sloped windshield and rear glass; a modern interpretation of the signature shark-bite front fascia and trapezoidal grille; and three-dimensional tri-bar taillamps with sequential turn signals.
Engine-wise, you still get the 5.0 liter V8 in the GT trim, upgraded to 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. The 3.7 liter V6 option is also present, offering 300 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque. There is a third option available for the 2015 ‘Stang, and that is a 2.3 liter EcoBoost four-banger with delivering at least 305 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque.
The biggest change in the new Mustang, however, must be the addition of an all-new integral-link independent rear suspension. The geometry, springs, dampers and bushings all have been specifically modified and tuned for this high-performance application. Are you going to miss the live rear axle? Well, your wallet might, because the new system makes the car more expensive to build.
