Introducing the 2015 Ford Mustang

By Cole Q.

“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, global product development. “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.”

It has been one of the most anticipated new cars of the decade, and today the world got its first official look when the new Mustang was simultaneously revealed around the globe in six cities on four continents!

We gave you a first look at the car hours earlier, (First Look at the All-New 2015 Ford Mustang ) and the chance to download images sized specifically for you to use as your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profile images. Now, let us share some information on the car and more enthusiasm from the team members at Ford who had a hand in bringing you the new Mustang.

“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.

The new design of both Mustang fastback and convertible evokes the essential character of the car, paying homage to its 50 years of heritage with contemporary execution.

“You only get one chance to make a first impression, and when you see this car you immediately see a Mustang strong and true,” said Moray Callum, Ford Executive Director, Design, The Americas.


The all-new Mustang features a lower roof and wider rear fenders and track. The Mustang fastback has a more steeply sloped windshield and rear glass. The front of the car is defined by the contemporary execution of the signature shark-bite front fascia and trapezoidal grille.

The new Mustang will be available with three engines: a more powerful 5.0-liter V8, a 3.7-liter V6 and an all-new fuel-efficient 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine.

Mustang GT continues with the latest edition of the throaty 5.0-liter V8, now featuring an upgraded valvetrain and cylinder heads that yield more than 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. A new intake manifold improves low-speed breathing for better fuel economy, idle stability and emissions.

The Mustang EcoBoost engine uses direct injection, variable cam timing and turbocharging to deliver plenty of usable performance and projected segment-leading fuel efficiency. A unique intake manifold and turbocharger housing enable it to deliver the performance Mustang drivers expect with output projected at more than 305 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque.

With at least 300 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque on tap from the standard 3.7-liter V6, even the most accessible Mustang delivers the performance customers expect.

The all-new Mustang features a significant amount of innovative technologies providing drivers with enhanced information, control and connectivity when they want it. From Intelligent Access with push-button start to SYNC® and MyKey® in every Mustang built, plus available Track Apps, MyColor gauges and new Shaker Pro audio system, drivers will be able to customize their time behind the wheel.

During its 50 years of continuous production, more than 9 million Mustang cars have been sold. It has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games, and is the world’s most-liked vehicle on Facebook. For the first time ever, Ford will bring Mustang to customers in key parts of Europe and Asia.

April 17, 2014, marks the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the original Ford Mustang. Every 2015 model will celebrate that milestone with a badge on the instrument panel that includes the galloping pony logo and the words “Mustang – Since 1964.” Mustang will continue to be built in the United States at Flat Rock Assembly Plant.

“From day one, we knew if we were going to build a new Mustang, we had to do it right,” said Dave Pericak, Ford Mustang Chief Engineer. “We built a new Mustang from the ground up that is quicker, better-looking, more refined and more efficient, without losing any of the raw appeal that people have associated with Mustang for half a century.”

Went to the Ft.Lauderdale Auto Show and saw the 2015 Ford Mustang in person. The good news is the interior looks great and is a nod to the iconic mustangs of yore.
The bad news is that the 2015 Ford Mustang exterior looks too much like a Ford Fusion from the front grill on back with two doors missing. Unless you look for the running horse or the six tail lights the 2015 fusion-mustang looks like most of the other uber Rubber Maid sleds on the road today. I will soldier on with my 2007 GT/CS or trade it for a new 2014 GT/CS. Will have to decide soon but this much I know, I will not be buying a 2015 fusion-mustang.

This corporate Fusion grill for 2015s' Mustang is a mistake. Makes the car look like it is wearing the frown of a disgruntled bass. A lesson I learned long ago? Never buy a car you can't look at favorably when walking out to the parking lot for a drive. It also makes writing the the check for the monthly payment a painful experience. So I wait until the 2015 can be seen in person to see if it is as awful as the back end and front grill look like online. We shall see. Unless it grabs my soul like the day I first saw my 2007 GT/CS I 'll be taking a pass on the 2015 Mustang as the ride won't be worth the price of admission.

I saw this at Pri in Indianapolis this past December, it looks even better in person then it does in the pictures.

I guess I'll have to see it in person before I say I hate it. I don't like the fusion front end on the new Mustang. I thought the Fusion was hot when it first came out and now I'm sick of it. I think Ford created a European/Japanesse car and added Mustang styling and power to this new model. So far, I'm not impressed.

Recognizable as a Mustang! It looks nothing like a Mustang! Now it just blends in with every other car on the road. Apparently the 2005 Mustang I own will be the last one I purchase.

I have been hooked on Mustangs since my folks purchased a coupe in February 1965.  I now own a '71 Mustang coupe, a family heirloom, and a '10 convertible.  I can't believe I have 2 Mustangs in my garage!  The '15 is gorgeous and needs to be parked in my driveway as a part of my herd.  It retains enough of the signature features to be easily identified as a Mustang, but with a modern take on a classic.  My two daughters are already arguing on who will inherit which car.  I'd love to give them a third option!  A blue fastback would be awesome!  Good job Ford!

Looks amazing! I can't wait to get one.

This car is not American. Nor a Ford. It's the transformation of American cars to italian and Japanese. Sorry ford This just Isn't a Mustang to me.

Sorry Ford I cannot say that I like the new Mustang, it's too European looking, it reminds me of the 1994 Stang. I can honestly say that I am not happy with what Ford has been doing lately. You scrapped the Crown Victoria, redesigned the Explorer and Escape (I think they are ugly), you dropped the V6 engine for the new Fusion and now your going to scrap the E series van to replace them with that Transit. And now the Mustang! I believe this is the third time in the Mustang's history that this car has been messed up - 1974, 1994, and now 2015. There is an old saying, "if it aint broke, don't fix it."

I've been a life long Mustang and Ford fan and I've got to say I was a little worried when starting seeing the renderings and teasers. Seeing the real thing, I really cant come up with the words to describe how I feel. I mean I got goosebumps. This car is gorgeous! It's modern, but still instantly recognizable and a Mustang. Love the led lights that look like the gills on early stangs. Every single member of the design team should be patting themselves on the back. Job well done!!!

This New Ford Mustang Totally Rocks Bigtime!!!
