There’s nothing like a 50th anniversary for revealing changes in the concept of a vehicle. From what we here at CJ Pony Parts have been hearing, the new 2015 Ford Mustang will bear little resemblance to your father’s – or your grandfather’s – Mustang. Ford is taking every possible measure to ensure the new Mustang remains shrouded in mystery until it is actually released to the public.
With that in mind, here’s some of what you can likely look forward to regarding the 2015 Mustang concept:
- Sleek Styling – Not so long ago, Ford introduced us to its Evos concept car at an auto show in Frankfurt, Germany. The Evos style features a sleek, rounded design that is reminiscent of the Mustang Fastback that traveled the roadways back in the 1960s. It’s widely believe that the 2015 Mustang will incorporate the Evos concept in an effort to appeal to a younger demographic. A highlight (or low-light, depending on your point of view) of the Evos design is the Maserati-like grille that Ford may also include in other vehicle models.
- More Power – The new concept for the 2015 Mustang doesn’t just apply to its design; you can also expect to find a little bit more under the hood in terms of power. The grapevine tells us that Ford will now offer the option of a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which provides more power than the current V-6 and is easier on the fuel budget than the Coyote engine. However, the latter two options should still be available.
- Reduced Size and Weight – Look for a slightly shorter, slimmed down Mustang in 2015. In fact, the new model could weigh 400 lbs. less than its 2014 brethren. This should make for a more nimble vehicle, even when selecting the more powerful engine option.
What Does a New 2015 Mustang Concept Mean for Your Bank Account?
Of course, the first thing that many car buyers think about when they hear about a new concept is how much it will cost them. The good news is that Ford is said to be making every effort to keep the 2015 Mustang as affordable as possible to appeal to the younger crowd. However, a fully loaded Mustang GT could cost as much as $50,000.
