2015 Mustang Fully Revealed

The 2015 Ford Mustang has been fully revealed, ushering in a new generation of the American automaker’s signature sports car.

Sporting an all-new chassis, the 2015 Ford Mustang has seen its roof lowered 1.5 inches, the hood 1.3 inches and the dashboard about 2.8 inches for a much sleeker design compared to its predecessor. It also sports independent rear suspension, a first for mainstream Mustang models. While traditional Mustang enthusiasts will groan over the thought that the Mustang no longer has a solid rear axle, Ford promises that the independent rear suspension improves handling, ride and steering precision on the all-new ‘Stang.

As for powerplants, the 2015 Mustang will come standard with a 3.7-liter V6 with 300 hp while a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine will be available with at least 305 hp, according to Ford. Then of course, there’s the top-of-the-line 5.0-liter V8 that will be rated at “more than 420 hp,” though official specifications have not been announced.

Tweaks were also made to the front roof pillars in order to offer better front visibility on the 2015 Mustang while the passenger airbag has been moved to the glove box door, getting rid of the separate panel typically found on the dashboard. As for the convertible model, which will be released nearly at the same time as the coupe, Ford boasts that it’ll have the fastest top on the market lowering or raising in just seven seconds. The convertible will be operable at speeds up to 5 mph.

And while minor, it’s worth mentioning that the 2015 Mustang’s front seats now feature “memory recline,” which will return to the driver’s preferred seating position after being moved forward in order to get the rear passengers out of the coupe.

    Ive owned 7 Rangers since 1985 ( ford should give me one ) and ive loved every single one ..this yr im putting my 2008 4 litre 2wd automatic sport  to the test and towing a travel trailer down the 101 and over to the Grand Canyon, will let you know how that works out . Mel

  • Honest Abe

    Best photos yet! Looks amazing!

  • Cadragg

    To all the haters commenting on the renderings…eat horse shit!

  • Alfie

    Perhaps even Pony shit.

  • peisley

    Finally got rid of the horrible cheap plastic on the interior. That was the one shocking quality flaw preventing me from considering one.

  • james johnston

    Looks much better than the Camero,

  • Fed up Union Worker

    Is it a Ford or a new F Type Jag? Looks like crap!

  • Brian Kvalheim

    Looks great. Not as good as the Camaro, but still looks awesome.

  • Keith

    The Camaro is a hunk a shit and looks like a Jag, GTFO here.

  • Brian Kvalheim

    LOL ok.

  • Auto Motive

    Mustang fans comments shows how irritated they are with Camaro continually outselling the Stang. Then we have the new and upcoming refreshed Challenger getting a 600-640 hp powerplant. Another nail in the Stang community. In 2016 the new Avenger or Cuda nameplate SRT arrives sporting a small stance lighter in weight and implanting the hell cat hemi with supercharging. And lastly when the Camaro comes out redesigned next year with bigger and better powerplants Wow is the word from chevy guys. Stang guys are really going to be pissed off. Come on ignorant stang guys lets hear the bad stuff coming out of your filthy mouths.

  • Cobradon

    They need to offer a 427 SOHC engine like in 1967 and forward. Capable of 600+ HP

  • sable

    Anyone can strap a supercharger to a V8 and make 600+ hp. It’s not rocket science. The problem with the Challenger is it’s a big pig. What everyone needs to be concerned about is the new LT1 with direct injection. We’re talking 600hp NA on pump gas from only 350ci.

  • Auto Motive

    I agree on one point. You can get the high hp and torque without super charging with larger heads, hypo cam, crank, air intake and performance exhaust. Here is the problem EPA numbers will be diminished. The SRT8 392 has a gas guzzler tax of $1000 taxed onto the msrp. Supercharging adds up to 150 hp at the crank and 100 hp net gain. I myself like nitrous since its cheap install, is safer for the engine components then before and can get a easy 100 hp shot when you need it. I do see a lot of super charged vehicles at cruises and now its time for the nitrous party to begin.
    Have a nice Christmans.

  • hillboy

    Then why is it not in the zl1? The lt1 makes 460 hp with di.

  • hillboy

    with Camaro off the market for 8 yrs .Chevy fans will want to buy Camaros even if it is not the best car.

  • Havoc

    Well I don’t know what might be coming out but for now, 3.6L dodge, 305/268; 3.6 Chevy 323/278, 3.7 Ford 305/280…….5.7 Dodge 375/410; 6.2 Chevy 400/410; 5.0 Ford 420/390…..Dodge 6.4 425/420; Chevy (oops ran out of engines but the tuned 6.8 ) 426/420….5.8 Ford 662/631 ( hey we forgot Ford has another engine, the most powerful production v8 in the world ). And as for officially announced, Ford 2.3, 4 cylinder 305+ hp versus oh wait nothing. Well how about the direct injection….oh none of those huh? Well maybe Dodge can add a few more cars to the line to compete with the Mustang. I wont bother listing the specs on the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion or Taurus (or the all wheel drive options). I guess you could buy a Corvette (DI 460/460) and get close. By the way Dodge is owned by Fiat, Its not even a domestic vehicle anymore.

  • Auto Motive

    Great comments. A couple points you missed. The corvette is a true track car. GT500 is a great drag car. The Z28 is a great track car. The rumored LT4 for the Z should hit 600 hp and will be a better track car. The ZR1 is rumored to hit 700 hp and will be both a great track and drag car. I myself would love to place a new Mach 1 ( former GT500) in my garage next year but unfortunately no automatic and its a poor performer for street use. I have not seen one GT500 at any car cruise period but so many ZL1 Z06 and ZR2 and SRT8. Nothing beats a Ford Mustang look and Roush is my favorite. ZR1 comes close. Talking about hot small cars how about the Hyundai Accent and Genesis at SEMA. 600 hp in a 1.6 liter car WOW and its streetable. How about the Genesis with 1000 hp and its streetable. Great cars coming eventually to all of us. You are a one mfg car guy which is sad. I have my choice of cars from every make and model. You are the a typical guy who walks thru car cruises and only looks in one direction. I am a car guy that looks at every car and talk to each owner and get their take on their car which they enjoy owning and driving. I love cars and cars that have appeal speed and technological advances. If you get my message you will be a better car guy and see the wonders of every automotive manufacturer around. ASK Jay Leno. ASK one of your friends. Thanks for the comments and take it from a senior guy who loves them ALL>

  • diehard

    Dodge is not owned by Fiat. They own a chunk of it. Do your homework on what car companies provide the most to the US economy. It might surprise you.

  • Havoc

    Well I don’t know what might be coming out but for now, 3.6L dodge, 305/268; 3.6 Chevy 323/278, 3.7 Ford 305/280…….5.7 Dodge 375/410; 6.2 Chevy 400/410; 5.0 Ford 420/390…..Dodge 6.4 425/420; Chevy (oops ran out of engines but the tuned 6.8 ) 426/420….5.8 Ford 662/631 ( hey we forgot Ford has another engine, the most powerful production v8 in the world ). And as for officially announced, Ford 2.3, 4 cylinder 305+ hp versus oh wait nothing. Well how about the direct injection….oh none of those huh?

  • sable

    Is there a stroker kit for these coyote engines or are they still stuck at a paltry 305ci?

  • Cobradon

    351 Cleveland engine exact fit. I put one in a 1965 Fastback

  • Keith

    Why would you need a stroker kit? Bolt-ons and tune alone are putting them in the 11’s, and if you are looking to stroke the 5.0 you might as well get the GT500.

    Also 305 is a CHEVY engine.

  • sable

    Why would you need a stroker kit? Is that joke? GTFO.

  • bob wolak

    With the exception of the roof line, looks like a Camaro.

  • chman

    I just love it – i am from switzerland – the Mustang i own i imported myself – and im happy with my stang – who wants a camaro????

  • David Roach

    Looks like a Camaro, looks like a Jag and the back looks Japanese. I will stick with the boring Fox body thanks

  • Havoc

    Seem like all these Chevy and Dodge guys are forgetting something. All these comparisons of the special edition motors to the standard 5.0 GT mustang. As usual Chevy guys always liked to compare the 350 to the 302. They always forgot about the 351. And just like then you can say what you want but at 662 hp and 631 ft-lbs of torque the 5.8 in the 2013 GT500 is the most powerful production engine in the world. All that power and still 24mpg Ford is no longer interested in competing with GM, Chrysler is all but gone, and Honda and Nissan have no competition for this marked. Ford is going for the global market. They are now competing with Porsche, Ferrari, Audi, Mercedes and BMW. Focus is the number one selling car in the world. Fusion is top in its class. Now Mustang is going to take it to the big guys. The other domestics can try to play catch up.

  • diehard

    Well Havoc, you seem to know quite a bit about the Fords. Tell me this, why are they down rating the V6 from 305 HP/280 lb ft torque to 300 HP/270 lb ft? I assume to help push the 305 HP ecoboost. ???

  • Havoc

    Oh and by the way for those guys over 5′ 10″ you can actually see out the windshield of the Mustang without ducking. If you still want to hate on the Mustang please do. I don’t want every douche bag on the block driving one. Leave that to the Camaro and Charger guys.

  • Havoc

    One more note, the new Mustang is designed to look like the old Mustang. The new Camaro was designed to look like the old Camaro. The old Camaro was designed to look like the old Mustang in a desperate attempt to pick up some of the sales dollars from one of the highest selling cars in history the 65 Mustang. So now you can see why the new Mustang looks a bit like the “new” Camaro. That is if you can call a car that was designed in 2006 and hasn’t really changed since.
