2015 Mustang to Kick Off with 1,000 Limited Edition 2014.5 Models

33

When the next-generation Ford Mustang arrives, it’ll be kicked off with a special edition run as a 2014.5 model year, limited to 1,000 units.

The limited 1,000 units will be the first Mustangs based on the new S550 platform and will undoubtedly become an instant collectors’ item, with each one sporting a special VIN and build number. As for hoping that it’ll be a high-performance variant, prepare to be disappointed. According to reports, the 2014.5 Mustang won’t feature any additional upgrades compared to the standard 2015 Mustang, but there’s a possibility of some special badging to commemorate the car’s 50th anniversary.

The next-generation Mustang is expected to come with several engine choices: a 2.3-liter, EcoBoost four-cylinder with around 350 horsepower, the base-model V6, and a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with upwards of 450 horsepower. The 2015 Ford Mustang will feature an independent rear and we should be seeing a glimpse of it before the end of the year.
