As pretty much no surprise to anyone, the first retail 2015 Ford Mustang will be auctioned for charity at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona on January 18, 2014. All the proceeds will go to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) — the country’s leading global organization funding type-one diabetes research.

The Mustang crossing the block will be a GT model, and it will feature a V-8 engine with an output of "at least" 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. The car features all-new front and rear suspension systems, more precise steering control and enhanced ride comfort.

During the auction, Ford will also offer its fans the chance to ride in and drive its best models in the 2014 lineup and its resident performance models, like the Shelby GT500 , Focus ST and Fiesta ST .

Visitors will also have the chance to see the special Mustang GT500 developed for the new "Need for Speed" movie, which is set to arrive in theaters on March 14, 2014.

Ford unveiled the third-generation Focus in 2011, and it looks like the latest generation is set to receive its first facelift. Our spy photographers caught the model while testing in wintery conditions, and managed to also obtain some shots of the interior.

The revised Focus appears to grow slightly in size, and will receive updates to the front and the rear. We expect the revised Focus to receive a completely new front-end look that features a new set of headlights, new bumper and a new grille. It also looks like the hood and the front fenders will also be updated. The rear should gain a new bumper and taillights.

For the interior, Ford will add a bigger screen for the infotainment and satellite navigation system, revised buttons in the center of the dashboard, new colors and upgraded materials.

We also expect to see some updated engines, but there is little to report on that so far.

We expect the revised Ford Focus to be unveiled sometime in early 2014, most likely at the Geneva Motor Show .

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.

To date, Ford has remained mum about the whole thing, as it could be preparing for yet another big event to launch the first of the Shelby cars based on the 2015 Ford Mustang .

Gran Turismo 6 may have scored a nice coup when BMW agreed to debut the M4 Coupe in the game,, but one competing video game franchise saw it as an opportunity to call GT6’s marketing score with one of its own.

In an announcement that was as pleasant as it was surprising, Need for Speed Rivals made its own recently-launched-car debut when the 2015 Ford Mustang became available in the game.

For what it’s worth, the 2015 Mustang is car tailor-made for a game like NFS Rivals, which possibly explains why the developers wasted little time putting installing it in the game. You can drive the Mustang as either a cop or a racer, two things the all-new pony car is well-versed at. And unlike GT6, or Forza 5, for that matter, driving skills sometimes takes a backseat to all-out mayhem in Need for Speed.

So if you’re running roughshod, steering clear of law enforcement authorities, or doing the actual pursuing of racers, the addition of the 2015 Ford Mustang in Need for Speed Rivals will make playing the game that much more enjoyable.

The preview video of the muscle car already makes it look at home in the Need for Speed franchise. Imagine what you can do with it once you get your hands on the game.

Need for Speed Rivals is already on shelves for the PS4 and XBox One with the 2015 Mustang likewise available to download.

The unveiling of the 2015 Ford Mustang is still fresh in a lot of people’s minds and yet somehow, a couple of aftermarket companies known for developing programs for the Blue Oval’s beloved pony car are already working on official renderings for their future builds.

Seems like Galpin Auto Sports and Steeda Automotive both can’t wait to get their hands on the next-generation Mustang , can they?

GAS, the aftermarket arm of Galpin Ford, the largest Ford dealership in the world, is probably responsible for the most modified Mustangs among all tuning companies. So with the 2015 Mustang officially making its debut last week, Galpin went with a wide-body treatment of the American muscle car , complete with bolt-on widebody fenders fender, a hellacious-looking front splitter, wider wheel arches, a lowered suspension, and the addition of new aero components like those side sills and the huge rear wing at the back.

Not one to be outdone, Steeda Automotive also took its time in the creative seat to visualize what the new Mustang would look like if it went under the aftermarket knife in Steeda’s care. Compared to what GAS rendered, Steeda’s version is a lot more subtle, and dare we say more realistic for a Mustang. Maybe even a little too simple with just the new black hood, a new set of black wheels, side graphics, and the Steeda windshield banner.

Of course, both these renders only show the cosmetic and aerodynamic side of their future programs. There will also undoubtedly be engine modifications coming from both, and that’s the most exciting part because as people who love the aftermarket scene as much as we do, imagining the power additions GAS and Steeda can put on the Mustang is enough to drive our imaginations crazy.

There is plenty to know about the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang , ranging from its all-new body, to engine upgrades, to suspension and chassis overhauls. Chris Nelson of Automobile Magazine has gone straight to the source and interviewed Dave Pericak, the chief engineer over the Mustang project.

Pericak talks about what systems received upgrades and how that plays into the overall performance of the car. Starting from the underside of the pony, Pericak emphasized the fact the Mustang is in fact all-new with nothing more than a few bolts and nuts being carried over from the current-generation car . The 107-inch wheelbase and the 3.7-liter V-6 are the only other carryover items, one being a mere measurement of distance.

Diving into the under hood details, the pair discuss the Mustang’s three engine options and what that means for buyers in the U.S. and abroad. Keep in mind, the 2015 Mustang is the first global edition of the famed pony car Ford has ever produced. Besides the 3.7-liter V-6, the 5.0-liter V-8 returns with all-new cylinder heads and upgraded lower components like its crankshaft that, if you read between the lines, will push it well above its current 420-horsepower rating.

The biggest news, however, is the addition of the 2.3-liter, EcoBoost in-line four. The engine was designed for the Mustang platform and features enough technology to produce over 300 horsepower, while still earning the best (estimated) EPA fuel economy numbers in Mustang history.

The hype and hysteria over the all-new 2015 Mustang’s reveal are still fresh in the air, as journalist and consumers alike scramble to learn every detail and fact about America’s newest pony car.

Ford ’s launch of the Mustang can only be described as spectacular with reveals in multiple cities and countries around the world. The overriding fact that Ford is going global with the 2015 Mustang is perhaps the biggest news about the Mustang nameplate. It’s hard to imagine a bigger birthday present to an iconic car celebrating its 50th year in production.

We’ve already covered the nitty-gritty details concerning the Mustang’s updates here , but now we present the “Reader’s Digest” version – the “just the facts, Ma’am” edition with all the details nestled snugly into 10 categories. Jump on down for TopSpeed’s top-ten list of 2015 Mustang improvements.

News surrounding the 2015 Ford Mustang is still hot, as details about the coupe and convertible models keep rolling in. But now with a finalized exterior design, our rendering artist went to work piecing together what Ford’s rumored 2015 Mustang Mach 1 might look like.

High-performance with retro throwback flair is the name of the game and the exterior styling screams it. Up front, a huge front splitter with adjustable supports instantly stands out, while a larger rear spoiler and quad exhaust pipes juice up the rear end. The iconic Mach 1 logo adorns the rear truck lid in all its ’60-era font glory. Other small details, like the rocker panel and hood stripes, add character, while the vertical-bar Mustang logo replaces the galloping stallion on the front grille.

We can only guess at what lurks under those functional heat extractors on the Mustang’s hood, and guess we will. The current 2014 Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V-8 cranks out 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque, and while Ford says the 5.0’s output is expected to be "at least" the same for the upcoming year, we suspect the 2015 GT to receive a marginal increase; perhaps to 430 horsepower and an even 400 pound-feet of twist.

Starting with those suspected output numbers, an estimate of 440 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque from the new Mach 1 sounds reasonable; especially considering the 5.0 produced 444 horsepower and 380 pound-feet in the 2013 Mustang Boss 302 , which we expect the Mach 1 to basically be the replacement for.

With just two days remaining until the big day when Ford finally reveals the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang to the world, here is a teaser video of what to expect at the Barcelona press conference. Along with the much awaited Mustang, Ford has promised a couple of new launches as well. However, the 2015 Ford Mustang will be the star of the show.

The unveiling of the new products will be a part of Ford’s "Go Further" campaign and the event will be aired live via webcast. Ford’s top bosses and decision makers will be present at the event to take direct questions from journalists from around the world. Of course, there will be much more excitement about the new Mustang , but we also expect to hear region-specific announcements with respect to new Ford models for Europe.

Ford recently unveiled the Edge Concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show . It is an SUV touted to take on the European market by storm and feature Ford’s new design language. Speaking of which, we could also see more new design studies giving us a peek in to the future Ford design.

The new-generation Ford Mustang will be unveiled on December 5th, but for those of you who want a quick look back at the evolution of the Mustang, Ford has prepared a little video (above) for you.

This new morphing video crams 50 years of famous — and some infamous — Mustang designs into 100 seconds, giving you the chance to remember all of the changes the Mustang endured through its storied history.

For those of you who are not as familiar with the Mustang’s lifespan, Ford unveiled the Mustang in 1964 and to date, it has gone through five different generations, all with a specific design language and with a different engine lineup.

The sixth-generation Mustang will be unveiled at the end of this week, and it will be offered with a series of innovative changes, like the availability of an independent rear suspension and a global design language.
