2015 Ford Mustang has just been caught by spy photographers and its design has been revealed, at least the new “face”. As expected, the 2015 Ford Mustang will be inspired by the Evos Concept car, unveiled back in 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Moreover, the sixt-generation Mustang will receive an independent rear suspension and will be offered with a turbocharged engine (EcoBoost) for the first time since the 1980s SVO Mustang.
The 2015 Mustang will get a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, a bigger six-cylinder engine but also a V8. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine is expected to deliver up to 300 hp.
Regarding its dimensions, the 2015 Ford Mustang will be the same size as the outgoing model and will get a right-hand drive version for markets such as the United Kingdom or Australia. Production is expected to begin in the summer of 2014 when the Mustang will celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Capable of offering performance that is truly world-class, the new Mustang is fitted with the most advanced technologies. With the plan of launching Ford’s latest offering to six cities on four continents at the same time, this marks the next chapter in the story that is the classis pony car. When it comes to the design of the Mustang convertible and Mustang fastback, its clean-sheet look brings to mind the brand’s most fundamental quality.
However, it implements it in a modern manner and ensures that the key design elements are still present like the short rear deck and long sculpted hood. According to Ford, the Mustang has experienced continuous production totaling 50 years with at least 9 million units sold. However, the actual impact of this model goes farther than that.
Mustang has had hundreds, if not thousands, of appearances in various media like video games, television, film, and even music. In fact, it is presently Facebook’s most-liked vehicle. Ford revealed that for the first time, the Mustang will now be available to customers in the markets of Asia and Europe. Ford Group Vice President for Global Product Development Raj Nair shared that the Mustang is able to inspire passion unlike any other car in the market.
It has that instinctive appearance and the performance and sound Mustang is known for and which will clearly resonate with everyone, even if they have yet to drive one, he added. More than being a car, Nair continued, the Mustang is the heart and soul of the brand.
In the meantime, Executive Vice President of Ford global Marketing, Sales and Service and Lincoln, Jim Farley revealed that when the brand created this car, the objective was to have a model that was a modern interpretation of the Mustang. The Mustang, he said, has long been an American automotive icon, one that exemplifies what optimism is and that represents freedom for millions of people worldwide.
