The new 2015 Ford Mustang was unveiled at the 2014 International Auto Show in Detroit. We all know it is one of the most popular muscle cars in America, so this latest model was highly anticipated. Here we will look at the refreshed and sophisticated design and enhanced performance of the new Ford Mustang 2015. Well, first things first…
Design of 2015 Ford Mustang
In the photo above you can see how the latest model looks from the front. Although the sixth-generation of America’s popular vehicle features a fresh styling, it doesn’t bring any striking changes to its exterior design. However, the 2015 Ford Mustang does look more sporty and aggressive with its lowered roof, slanted windshield and rear glass, wider fenders and low stance. The front of the coupe is slightly refreshed comparing to a previous model. It features a familiar deep front grille in the shape of a trapezoid, and a longer hood. It has a pair of cool looking headlights with three diagonal light stripes. Unlike the hood, which is now longer, the rear of the car is much shorter. In combination with a slanted rear window gives it a cab-rearward appearance. The rear has three vertical taillights with sequential turn signals, and two exhaust tips at the bottom.
Interior Styling and Equipment
Mustang comes with a choice of two cabin styles. First, there is an aviation-inspired theme with a larger interior, additional gauges on the center console, toggle switches at the bottom, and a steering wheel that has a lot of buttons. The second cabin style is more luxurious. Designers used more quality materials. There are no additional gauges on the top of the center console. Instead there is an additional air vent. The wheel also have additional buttons and switches. Behind it is a paddle shifter, if you choose a model with an automatic gearbox.
On the equipment front, the new 2015 Ford Mustang will come with a majority of high-tech features. To mention some of those: push-button starter, big display, GPS navigation, SYNC with MyFord Touch, stability, steering, throttle and transmission systems controlled by a driver, climate control, Shaker Pro audio, USB ports, parking assist with blind-spot monitors, and many safety features.
Mustang Engine, Specs, Performance

For the first time, the 2015 Ford Mustang will be offered with a 2.3-liter Turbocharged EcoBoost that will be able to develop 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque. This powertrain will boost the fuel economy of the new muscle car. Also, offered will be a base 3.7-liter six-cylinder V-6 engine that will be able to produce about 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Third choice include an updated, more powerful 5.0-liter eight-cylinder V-8 engine that will develop 435 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of twist. All powertrains will be mated to a standard 6-speed manual transmission, with an option of a 6-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters.
