Ford's 2015 Mustang unleashed: World gets a peek

 

2015 Ford Mustang revealed

The 2015 Ford Mustang was revealed during a ceremony at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood

 

Ford Motor Co. has unleashed the sixth-generation Mustang, the product of a delicate effort to balance half a century of history with demands for modern powertrains, technology and styling.

The result retains the essence of the late-1960s fastbacks on which the car

I can't believe I'm about to say this about a Ford, but it actually looks kind of nice...

 

I feel like I need a shower now...

This has been making round s on the internet for the past couple days. I love the front, very reminiscent of the Fusion. But, I hate the fastback design  :x

When I trade in my Grand Prix in the next 18 months, this will definitely be on my shopping list. 2.3T is pretty interesting, but I'm betting the 3.7L v6 is more refined, sounds better and probably ends up getting better MPG instead of dealing with all that boost and such.

Boo. If you're going for a Mustang go for a V8.

hah, that 5.0 is definitely pretty fancy, and actually probably manages to get some good mileage on the highway, but I have a 5.3 v8 in the Prix and the MPG barely gets in the 17's combined. It's fun and sounds nice, but I think if I was car shopping again I'd trade a little power for better mileage with a v6 instead. I think the V6 Ford has been using the past few years actually gets close to 320 horses if I remember right.

But that's the whole point of owning a Mustang. If you want better gas mileage get a Prius.

A Prius isn't fun to drive, a Mustang, probably in any engine they have will offer much better driving dynamics and be more fun that any Prius would. And besides, in a generation or two, most muscle cars will probably have 6 cylinders anyways.

There is absolutely nothing dumber in the world than saying the whole point of a Mustang is to have a V8. Can't some people just want the car and not care about that?

Um its a Mustang.. Why buy a muscle car and not have any muscle under the hood..  There are plenty of fun to drive cars that aren't muscle cars. Muscle cars should remain V8's and not watered down versions of themselves.

Because you like the way the car looks? The way it drives? The price? Because the V6 has enough muscle? The same reason you buy ANY car.

Yes and no. V8's are awesome, and no doubt the hardcore enthusiasts will go with the V8. However, there are people that want something cheaper, more economical and don't care for all the power the v8 produces, so that's where the 4/6 cylinder versions come in. 

 

4 cylinder Turbo's are becoming quite popular here. You can squeeze some awesome mileage out of those. I have a car w/ a 6 cylinder turbo putting down 300hp/300tq (which is under rated from factory), but I can still squeeze 37-38 mpg on highways and high 20's in the city. But, the car is also very fun when I want it to be.

So KingCracker, by your logic, would you drive a Prius or a V6 Mustang to work? If you have to have something is it always all or nothing?

I agree tsupersonic's post as I quoted below...  If you like car's design and comfortable seating, you can get either 4 or 6 cylinders for cheap price..  V8 models are bit expensive depends the options you choose when you buy a car, such as GPS, high end stereo w/ speakers, etc.

If I was buying a muscle car i'd want the muscle. I mean that's part of the allure of the Mustang. There's plenty of other fun to drive cars out there but this is the Mustang. For the Mustang it is to me all or nothing.
