2015 Ford Mustang rendered and detailed AGAIN

Share this Post:

Time and again, we have all been privy to rumors and speculation surrounding the 2015 Ford Mustang. Car & Driver is now the latest party to lay out solid intel surrounding the forthcoming Ford installment of the 2015 Mustang. Everyone knows the 5.0-liter is back and it is awesome, but what does the 2015 Mustang hold for us in power, design, refinement, and pizzazz? Sources say we shall find out soon enough on Thursday, April 17, 2014 — exactly 50 years from the day the Mustang made it to the marketplace. Nothing like ringing in half a century of legendary dominance by making an entrance to the birthday party in entirely new skin, right?

Overall, the 2015 Mustang is not going to be that varied in size from the current platform, but it is going to take on a unibody construction, with a narrower track and shorter wheelbase. Another surprising news bite we found, was the 2015 Mustang is supposed to have a multi-link independent rear suspension (IRS) in place of the long tenured solid rear axle the Ford Mustang has always sported. I mean, c’mon Ford, we’ve been crying for wide scale IRS since 1999, when it was applied to the SVT Cobra versions of the Mustang, so it’s about time, woot!

What’s more, this next Mustang will make its way to the global marketplace, and with that, it’ll be offered with more power plant options to make it more multi-market appealing. In addition to the one V6 option and the three V8 engines found in today’s Ford Mustang, the 2015 is slated to have a 4-cylinder offering. That’s right, for the first time since 1993, the Mustang is set to have a 2.4-liter, direct-injected inline 4-banger under the hood to surpass even today’s 30+ mpg 3.7-liter V6 (proven and true!). Can you say 250 horsepower EcoBoost, anyone??? Other than this new power option, the V8 lineup really isn’t expected to change all that much, so don’t go bananas there, anyone…

So what else is in store? What all is expected to change? Lots, you guys…LOTS! Be sure to check out the rest of the story over at Car & Driver for more.

    Looks like a ford messaged Feista front end with side and rear quarter G35ish looks. Looks nothing like a Mustang! Not a bad looking car however.

      This looks fantastic or would you prefer those oragami dodge charger look alike renderings floating around. People seriously got bad taste. This rendering looks PERFECT!!!, first they complain about ‘it looks like an aston martin!?.. R U F’ing kidding me.. who wouldnt want there car to look like an aston!!? (NO I WANT MY CAR TO LOOK LIKE AN OLD BEATER!!!)) — idiots!! (NO I WANT THE MUSTANG TO LOOK LIKE THE 88 FOX BODY!)) — Soo.. you want the mustang in 2015 to look like an oragami shoe box from the 80′s!? really people, WAKE THE F$&#(!! UP!!! This is the best looking rendering of a mustang since the original. And as far as the Aston tie in.. YES!! if you knew anything about Astons, youd know they based the original V8 Vantage’s design off the Fastback mustang. ITs not that mustang looks like an aston , its the fact that the Aston looks like the mustang but ford ditched the classic mustang design years ago. Brough it back in the current bulky car, but aston properly evolved the shape thru the years. Astons (the v8 Vantage) is an evolution of the mustangs fastbach design. Just look at a shelby gt500 (eleanor) in comparison to a modern aston and youde see the direct relationship. This is why we all think Eleanor looks soo great! its a mustang with great curves. low sleek long sloping hood. The problem is people dont know about mustangs. and surly dont have good taste, This rending is FANTASTIC!!.

      GREAT LOOKING CAR!! FANTASTIC looking car. and for all those that somehow cant see the mustang connection (sorta understanble since ford hasnt exactly evovled the original mustangs design UNlike aston martin with its take on the mustang with the original v8 Vantage) Just do a side by side comparison with an original mustang.. a shelby GT 500 Eleanor and an modern aston v8 vantage. then youl understand the look is truly all mustang.

    Its a great looking car dont get me wrong but its far too exotic to be a mustang..that thing RUMBLING down the street would look odd

    • mustang salley 11/19/2012 at 12:40 pm #

      Heres another idiot!… soo.. its far too exotic to be a mustang!??? Let me get this rite!.. ITS FAR TO EXOTIC!?? hmmmmm… now, before i rant let me say i do understand what your saying, the fact youve said it is amazing to me. It was kinda like saying.. if they turn my ford fiesta into a lamborghini i think its too exotic. Shoot me!! please!!! The very fact that *FORD* is even in the ballpark of such a design with the mustang is something to be thankfull for. The notion that the car COULD look as good as an aston yet cost as a mustang is to die for! people just dont think!!! at all!!!! FORD PLEASE take heed to this rendering , ITS PERFECT, exactly were mustang needs to go.

    Most beautiful Mustang I’ve ever seen!

  4. chris 10/19/2012 at 8:39 pm #

    The more I look at the pics, the more I like it. Definitly doesn’t have any of the mustang cues we mustang fanatics are used to, but maybe that’s a good thing. Sleek, poweful looking…I think it would be down right badass sitting at a stoplight. Makes that overweight, ugly looking pig of a camaro look archaic. BUILD IT FORD..IRS, 5.0 @ 450+HP minimum!!!!!!

    I like it. It’s got enough Mustang in it to recognize it for what it is, it’s modern, it fits the times, all things that a Mustang should be, and something they got right for every generation but the fox-body cars.

    It looks sleek enough to go head-to-head with the Scion FRS, Hyundai Genesis Coupe, Subaru BRZ, Nissan 370Z, and Infinity G37, while still being ballsy-looking enough to go head-to-head with the Camaro, Challenger, and in Shelby guises, the Corvette and Viper.

      There are a lot of fox body owners that would disagree. The fox body mustang and its 5.0L (4.9) V8 rejuvenated the entire hobby. They were awesome cars back in the day, and the clean ones still look great, today.

    Hmmm, “it is going to take on a unibody construction…” Since when has a Stang not been unibody?

    IRS, what is it with rags wanting IRS in a Stang? Seems as though time after time after attempting IRS in a Stang the trade off in performance gain vs weight gain hasn’t been worth it thus no IRS.

    When I see the renderings of this car I see a Jag, especially if you remove the scallops from the sides. I said years ago that if Ford carried the looks of the ’69-70 forward without all the ugly cars in between it would have looked like a newer XKE which wasn’t a bad looking car. As is this rendering, particularly if they fill the wheel wells the way it’s shown in the pic:)

    Looks like a Scion or something Kia would come up with — slick ya wanna forget quick.

    Now the Germans, they evolve their car designs. You can look at a Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, you know who the grandfather is. You look at an American car and it’s got about as much lineage as an orphan at a wedding.

    My Mustang GT ’13 ain’t RETRO – it’s got lineage. That design up there, top of the post, is more IN VITRO.

    Ford is gonna blow it with their new design. Camaro SPOOKED them. And it shows.

    Epic fail….. looks more like the new fusion, why not give it 4 doors while your at it…

    The rendering is a great concept but poor production car. There is not enough room for the IRS. The rear wheelwell are not broad for wheel travel. The Ford badge on the back has never been on a Mustang. The built-in spoiler is too heavy for production. J. Mays has stated you will be able to tell it’s Mustang when it pulls up beside you. This doesn’t. The tail lights are derived from a 2010-2012 model which tells me this is not an up to date rendering. Since the 2013 model has been detailed in black, there is no black used here. There will be no shroud below the muffler because the vibration will melt the plastic.

      My 1996 GT has the blue oval badge on the back…

      I like the concept. I’m interested to see the direction Ford really goes in. If they want to appeal to a global market they are going to HAVE to do something radical. The rest of the world doesn’t want old-school American styling and it’s about time America built a MODERN sports car that is affordable.

    Are you kidding me? This looks unreal! The best looking mustang by far, period. I like those Aston Martin lines. Although it doesn’t look like a typical mustang, I’m OK with it. You can’t stay too long with all that Retro theme. Look at current Camaro- its very retro but it came too late and not too many people like it anymore.
    Common, Ford, build it!

    Cool Mustang!!!

  14. tony 02/02/2013 at 7:21 pm #

    Yeah, uhm… no.
    That is NOT a Mustang, a new probe maybe, but not a Mustang

    while it isn’t a bad looking car, that is in NO way a mustang. there isn’t a single thing about it that would ever bring to mind such an Iconic car
