2015 Ford Mustang Will Be All New to Celebrate 50th Anniversary

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, an all-new Ford Mustang will go on sale in early 2014 as a 2015 model year car indicate recent reports. This will coincide with the timing of the original Mustang’s on sale date back in 1964.

Big things are reportedly brewing for the Mustang and its rumored to finally get an independent rear suspension. In addition, look for a smaller rear-drive platform that could help the Stang shed some weight, further transforming it from a muscle car to a true sports car. While still not a global car, look for Ford to further expand sales of the Mustang, with a model planned for right-hand drive countries like the UK, Australia and Japan.

As for the look, Ford chief designer J Mays has previously indicated it will be something new, and not just an evolution of the current retro-themed model.

Until then, look for an updated Mustang to bow next year as a 2013 model year car, with the 2013 Shelby GT500 reportedly getting 650-hp from a turbocharged V8.

    “Global Car” and “further transforming it from a muscle car to a true sports car”? If they are hinting at it, then that is where they want to take the Mustang. I have heard this before: Hello again 1974 Mustang II.

    Uhhhh, 2015 will be Ford’s 51’st year model for the Mustang.

    Well if they release it April 17th 2014 as a 2015 model it would be no different than ford releasing the original as an “early” 1965 mustang on April 17th 1964. VINs from 64 and 65 are the same; 5Fxxxxxxxxx or 5Rxxxxxxxxx for dearborn and san jose plants respectively. Let’s just hope thats when they decide to release it!

    I like it and I hope to get one.

    I hope Ford will do the April 17th 2014 date….it only makes sense.  But it will be interesting to see how many of us who can appreciate the nostalgia of the date will have an equal appreciation for the anticipated radical styling change.  Ford has quite a task to create a car that appeals equally to the 20-something and the 60-something generations.
