The 2015 Ford Mustang was unveiled to the world recently, when Ford showed the pony car to public at launch events that took place at multiple locations around the globe. Ford now plans to expand in to new territories and that includes right-hand-drive markets, like England, Australia and Japan.
The iconic Ford Mustang does have an international fan base, therefore we weren’t taken by surprised to hear that the Mustang would venture outside of the U.S.
At the unveiling, Ford showed us the standard 2015 Mustang along with the 2015 Ford Mustang GT . Like we’ve said before, the styling is simply gorgeous, and we love the way Ford designers have incorporated certain design cues from the classic Mustang into this modern reincarnation.
The gills from the original return in the form of daytime running lights, while the triple-bar taillights are now more three dimensional to the naked eye. With the basic models well outlined, folks are now curious to learn about more power-packed versions of the pony car.
Well, that wait is nearing an end, as today an insider revealed a demo promo order system on dealer-side computer software, which clearly shows a Shelby GT350. This means that though the GT350 will likely return as a dealer-direct package, as opposed to a Shelby aftermarket add-on package. Short of the name, the screen grab doesn’t reveal much else.

For the first time since the 1980s, Ford is offering an in-line four-cylinder engine in the Mustang, in the form of a 2.3-;liter Ecoboost unit. However, we’re more interested in the 5.0-liter V-8 that powers the 2015 Mustang GT . According to Ford, this V-8 puts down "at least" 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. The car can be had with a proper manual gearbox, much to the liking of enthusiasts.
The biggest change however, is the suspension. The Mustang now uses a suspension setup that is more in-tune with time. Yes, we finally have a Mustang with a independent setup on the rear. This should give it a more planted feel when tossed around corners.
Inside, the Mustang’s cabin has been redesigned along classic lines. In here, the Mustang features round air-conditioning vents and twin-brows on the dashboard. It retains the twin-dial instrument cluster, as well as the three-spoke steering wheel with a large, round central hub.
The 2015 Ford Mustang is modern and stylish, but it also remains true to its roots. Without the classic design touches, the car would have been incomplete. No wonder the world still loves the original Mustang.
