2015 Ford Mustang is sixth generation in 50 years
In honor of its 50th anniversary, the Ford Mustang was completely revamped for 2015. The sixth generation of the iconic pony car, unveiled Dec. 5, 2013, is distinguished by a lower, wider stance, a return to the fastback design and a slight update to the trapezoidal grille and headlights. Most important for Ford, for the first time in its history, the muscle car will be sold around the world.
Ford unveiled the all-new Mustang on Dec. 5, 2013. The pony car has been revamped just six times in its 50-year history.
More than 9 million Mustangs have been sold in its 50-year run of continuous production.
Ford loaded the all-new Mustang with an entire scope of interior technologies. Every Mustang comes equipped with Ford's "Intelligent Access" system with push-button start and Sync, the in-car communication that, for the first time, brings a touch screen and voice control to the iconic pony car.
For 2015, the Mustang returned to a fastback design. The car also boasts three-dimensional, tri-bar taillamps with sequential turn signals.
The famed pony logo is featured both on the car's wheels and on its steering wheel.
One noticeable difference in the new Mustang is the design of the headlights. Ford added three slim bulbs that resemble the taillight design to the single, circular light featured in the car's previous generation.
Other design updates for the all-new Mustang include a lower, wider stance with a reduction in roof height, and wider rear fenders and track.
In addition to unveiling a two-door coupe version of its iconic Mustang, Ford also showed off a convertible version of the sports car. The company says the new top lowers twice as quickly as before, and has a sleeker profile when folded.
The Mustang comes with three engine options: a 5.0-liter V-8, a 3.7-liter V-6 and a fuel-efficient, 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. The most powerful of the three puts out 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque.
Ford said it took inspiration for the interior from a cockpit, and worked to strike a balance between analog dials and digital feedback.
