Latest 2015 Mustang Rendering is Considered Fairly Close

Rendering

Expect some changes for the 2015 Mustang, but the 5.0 V8 will definitely remain.

We've already reported that the next generation Mustang, due to be unveiled at the 2014 New York Auto Show, may closely resemble the Ford Evos concept revealed last September at Frankfurt. Many fans weren't too pleased, to say the least, but Ford has stated that they want the new Mustang to be a global sports car that will attract buyers beyond America's shores. Inside Line has just published a couple of fresh renderings which, according to them, a Ford insider claimed were pretty close to the final design.

It's immediately clear the front end design of the Evos was taken, but Inside Line's Ford source claimed that the current Mustang's long hood/short deck proportions will remain in place. In addition, there will likely be some familiar Mustang design traits such as the rear-quarter windows and triple-lens taillamps. Fortunately, no major changes are expected under the hood as the current engine lineup is expected to carryover. In the future, however, Ford may offer a turbocharged four pot as a base engine that would produce the same power output as the current 3.7-liter V6 but with better fuel economy. The 5.0 V8 will also definitely remain.

Perhaps the biggest change, other than the design, will be the fact that the Mustang will ditch the rear straight axle in favor of an independent setup, but we've known about that for quite some time. Ford says that it will still perform just fine on the dragstrip, but it will be much improved on curvy roads and tracks. What we can also see in these renderings is that the 2015 Mustang will be smaller than the current generation. As we previously mentioned, the new car is being designed for global buyers who prefer their sports cars to have less bulk. In other words, the Mustang will have less metal and a lower weight.

Remember, this redesign is very important because Ford will also be celebrating the Mustang's 50th anniversary at the time of its launch. Judging from you've read and have seen here today, we're interested in knowing your comments. Let the argument/debate begin.
