The 2015 Ford Mustang is the 6th generation of Ford's iconic pony car and it's construction marks the 50th year of production (or, for you 1964 1/2 purists, the 50 and 1/2 year anniversary). It also marks the first time since the 1986 SVO Mustang that Ford is putting a 4 cylinder engine under the hood of its flagship pony car. Like in 1986, the Mustang's newest motor is a turbocharged 4 cylinder and will join the current 3.7L V6 and 5.0L Coyote engine to round out the 2015 Mustang's drivetrain options.
If you haven't seen it yet, check out our live coverage of Ford's official revealing of the 2015 Mustang where we get the first footage of the new Mustang, live at the set of Good Morning America in New York City.
Ford has done an excellent job of promoting the 6th generation Ford Mustang. From the original reveal over social media, movie appearances to overseas soccer games and everything in between, the newest Mustang can be found nearly everywhere. With so much innovation and change going into it, you'll likely see plenty more from Ford before these cars hit dealership lots.
Even though the S550 is a completely new platform for the Mustang, it still draws inspiration and design cues from the 50 years of history and heritage that lead up to the 2015 Mustang. AmericanMuscle pulled together some very unique retro inspired renderings of what the 2015 Mustang would like in some of the most famous trims.
The 5.0L V8: As mentioned, the 5.0-liter modular Coyote motor is making its return under the hood of the Mustang GT for the 2015 model year. While exact horsepower numbers have yet to be released by Ford, we do have many of the more important specs for the 2015 GT. One noteworthy upgrade to the 2015 Mustang's 5.0L is the many Boss 302 parts that have been incorporated into the GT's engine.
The 3.7L V6: The V6 remains largely unchanged from 2014 to 2015. It has been mentioned by a few different outlets that Ford may have even detuned the V6--dropping the horsepower level from 305HP to 300HP at the crank--to make it clear that the V6 is the base model engine and the new EcoBoost 2.3L 4 cylinder is a premium upgrade.
EcoBoost 2.3L 4 Cylinder: The newest EcoBoost motor (also found in the new Lincoln MKC) is a turbocharged 4 cylinder rumored to be pumping out over 300HP from the factory. Complete specs for the 2015 4 cylinder Mustang are not fully known, but Ford has given us a ton of good information on both the motor and the options--we're mainly waiting on official horsepower and torque numbers.
With the 2015 Mustang comes an all new chassis. Starting in the 2015 model year, the S550 chassis will replace the current S197 platform. It's said to be lighter, stronger and overall a more solid platform than the S197. The convertible is also said to feel much more solid, very similar in feel and ride quality to the coupe. Oh, and did we mention the new Mustang is a fastback? How awesome is that.
Ford is finally moving away from the solid rear axle (SRA) that has been a mainstay under the Mustang since its inception. Besides a short stint with IRS in the 1999-2004 Cobras, the SRA was both loved and hated by people wanting a Mustang. Now, for good or ill, the Mustang will have a new IRS moving forward. How this plays out for the drag racing crowd is to be seen, but it looks like the Mustang's new IRS will be here to stay.
Ford is still testing the new GT350, and we must say that is sounds awesome. It does feature the quad tip exhaust currently found on the 2013-2014 GT500. Like in the early stages of prototype testing for the GT/4 cylinder, very little is known about this new Mustang, but we expect it to have a ton of power and be significantly lighter than the existing GT500--even more so than the 2015 GT/V6/4cylinder.
