The wait is finally over. Ford has officially unveiled the sixth generation of the Mustang. The 2015 Ford Mustang is featuring a new design and will come with three different engines and with great performances.
“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car. 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”, said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, global product development.
The 2015 Ford Mustang front end is dominated by its trapezoidal radiator grille and if features a special “shark-bite” front fascia. The headlights and the steeply raked windscreen are completing the unique design. Moving forward we see a sculpted hood, wider rear fenders and three dimensional tri-bar taillights.
“We crafted this car with the goal of creating a contemporary interpretation of Mustang – an American automotive icon that symbolizes optimism and freedom for millions of people around the world,” said Jim Farley, executive vice president of Ford global marketing, sales and service and Lincoln.
Ford also unveiled the convertible version of the 2015 Mustang. It features a multilayer insulated cloth top that can be lowered twice as fast as its predecessor.
The cabin was inspired by an airplane and features high quality materials and better switchgear. Ford also introduced a lot of special systems: Intelligent Access, SYNC, MyFord Touch, Track Apps, MyColor gauges and Shaker Pro audio system.
As you may have read, under the bonnet of the 2015 Ford Mustang, buyers will find three different engines with three different power outputs. The smallest one is a 2.3 liter four cylinder EcoBoost unit which can deliver 305 horsepower and 406 Nm peak of torque. The second choice is a 3.7 liter V6 engine with 300 HP and 365 Nm of torque. Last, but not least is a 5.0 liter V8 engine rated at 420 horsepower and 528 Nm peak of torque.
“We already set a very high standard for Mustang’s dynamics with Boss 302, and our goal was to go above and beyond that with this new car,” said Dave Pericak, Ford Mustang chief engineer.
The 2015 Ford Mustang also features a new integral-link independent rear suspension and a special tuned stability control system while the Mustang GT will come with a standard launch control.
