  1. Wow. We really are getting close to this Ford Mustang redesign, 50th Anniversary thing, FINALLY. It’s pretty much November now, and with the newsstands filling up with magazines aplenty for the year-end and Holiday season, we can be sure of one thing—we shall be seeing a LOT of the 2015 Mustang to-be. The upcoming issue of Car and Driver has a sizeable spread and loads of intelligence laid down on what everyone has been kicking around the water cooler, sandbox, and parts counter most of this year.

    So, there are a few things we can all finally (maybe?) lay to rest:

    • The 2015 Mustang is pretty much getting an IRS (independent rear suspension) configuration.
    • The 2015 Mustang will keep its power plant offerings as they are…for now.
    • The 2015 Mustang will be a global platform. (What’s this mean? GOOD things, that’s what.)
    • The 2015 Mustang will keep many of the Ford Evos concept’s styling cues, but won’t go “too Euro” on the faithful followers in the USA.
    • The 2015 Mustang will be the first one ever to sport the MyFord Touch screen in the center stack.
    • The 2015 Mustang will kick off some serious R&D for transmissions, including a reported 10-speed auto project, jointly designed with GM.
    • The 2015 Mustang “Coyote” 5.0 is said to be bolstered to an output of 500hp.
    • The 2015 Mustang is going to get a turbocharged, direct-injection 2.3-liter 4-cylinder engine offering, just above the bubble sheet, over the base V6.
    • The 2015 Mustang may also receive the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 as an engine option, as is found in the current Taurus SHO. 400hp, anyone?
    • The 2015 Mustang opens the door up through the 2017 models, with performance AND economic improvements all the way, with the “Trinity” 5.8-liter V8, pumping out over 660hp.
