Review on the 2015 Ford Mustang
Finally, we get to take a look at the 6th generation installment of arguably, one of America's most iconic cars lines, celebrating 50 years of history, the 2015 Ford Mustang. Designers and enginers collaborated endlessly to bring you all of the traditional upgrades in style, performance, and class, as well as a few leaps forward taking the latest installment of the Ford Mustang to the next level.
First - what all Mustang owners want to know about -- Engine Options:
V6 - likely to be the most popular rumored to push at least 300 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque.” This may be a bit of a disappointment since it's current V6 is pushing 305, so it's quite possible they carried over this engine, even though Ford assures us that theV6 & V8 engines will out-perform the 2014 model.
GT - will feature the 5.0-liter Coyote V8.
2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder - yes, we said it. 4 cylinder Mustang. A high-capacity direct injection system precisely controls fuel delivery, while a new twin-scroll low-inertia turbocharger means incredibly fast time-to-torque. But before you roll your eyes and sneer at the thought that American Muscle should never be outfitted with anything less than 6 - this bad boy is turbocharged to 305 hp and 300 lb-ft torque between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm, and it's thought to not only surpass the power of the V8 in every day driving, but it triumps in fuel economy. Take that one to the bank V6/V8.
Intelligent Access with push-button start
Available SYNC® with MyFord Touch®
Available BLIS® with cross-traffic alert
The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) uses two discreetly placed rear radar sensors to warn you of cars approaching on either side. And cross-traffic alert warns you of those you can’t see when you’re backing out of a parking space. Driver assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s judgment.
The Mustang convertible - the all-new Mustang convertible goes topless in approximately half the time of the current model. Available late 2014.
Other upgrades -
Suspension - The solid rear axle that Mustang fans coveted over the years that cleaned up at the race track, while turning every neighborhood speed bump into a launching pad has finally given way to a modern, integral-link independent rear suspension. That allows bigger stock tires and better overall performance.
Transmission - Getrag six-speed manual gearbox from the current car will be carried over, and it will be joined by a six-speed automatic, which for the first time will feature genuine paddle shifters.
Brakes - with choice of 18-20 inch wheels and rims.
- V6, V8 & EcoBoost - 12.6-inch front and rear rotors, with two-pistons calipers in front and single-piston units on the back
- GT - 15-inch rotors and six-piston calipers
To top it all off the 2015 Mustang has gotten smarter and lost a little weight. Now 200+ lbs lighter and outfitted with smart control drive settings that will help get you through inclimate weather.
Finally, a new 2015 Mustang is a low-rider, maintaining it's cockpit style interior, still outfited with it's beloved classic dash gauges. Ford designers had hoped to not reinvent the Mustang with it's latest installment, but to preserve everything about the vechicle that has made it one of America's favorites for the past 5 decades, and improve on the technology, style, performance, speed and handling.
Unfortunately still months away from an actual test drive... we're excited to get behind the wheel!
