Do You Like The New 500HP 2014 Ford Mustang?

2014 Ford Mustang Concept Car

The times are indeed a changin’! I think we may have proof of this change as the Mustang world anticipates the release of the 2014 over-haul that has sparked a ton bit of speculation. The interior is rumored to be much better with higher quality materials and the installation of advanced technology. Also, the 2014 Mustang model will be a retro throwback to the 60′s Fastbacks and will now feature change in the form of… a Turbo Charger !

The guys over at Auto Express basically confirmed that the new model will feature a 2.5-liter EcoBoost turbo that will generate about 300-HP and will also feature, drum roll please… Independent Rear Suspension! Go ahead, soak that one up. (And don’t worry, a 5.4-liter 500-HP V8 will be available if you’re after some muscle – afterall, this is a Mustang!)

The confirmed smaller, leaner chassis will only be a rocket-ship with a 500-HP V8! This new platform will help the Mustang make its way over to the UK and other continents (right hand drive), as Ford continues to compete globally.

The rumor that Ford will be featuring the new EcoBoost Turbo in its new model has been circulating for quite some time, but IRS? That’s news! Do you like where the new Mustang is headed? What about the concept design (even though they’re hardly ever accurate)?

    WOW, thats a great design in my opinion.. love the future like front and the sleek design in the back

    • Mechanic

      im not supporting ford in anyway on this design but they have their reason for this body design is smaller which means less weight and faster times=still gay
      lower to the ground means better weight distribution which contributes to better handling
      i hate euro cars but when u distribute the weight right and make it light and then put a 500hp motor in all i gotta say is its gonna be one beastly son of a bitch
      the 4cyl as gay as they are, fords probably goin back cause the 6 cyl is not much of a difference from the v8 on gas milage n the 4cyc is probably a lot better than any six they could pump out but damn that 4cyl is gonna be slower than an 94 v6 and thats slow 
      hate the design too btw
      ford has increase fuel economy on their cars because of gov regs, thats probably the reason for the major design change , but really another 4 cyl i hate those pissed off weed wacker
      05 V6 owner pushin over 400hp (soon to be more, n wait for the procharger to go on) 
      ford is stupid as shit they design their cars for performance n fuel economy n with a few simple change they could be gettin 35-38mpg highway like me my changes to my 05 v6 have lasted a long time and improved the fuel economy, n thats without a tune (thats being done soon) but yea i can understand their reasons but i dont really like the idea of a weed wacker engine in a mustang n the gay euro design 
      look at it this way guys the mustangs still the best compared to other muscle cars performance wise/ look wise the challenger wins by a mile compared to the new design

      • wolfclanstang

        they should allow some of old street racers to have a go at it , there should be a mix of 1960 and 2005 design minus the wgt and place a 500 hp in that , please do not go back to Mustang II time frame, ford you can do better than this , and yes please no weed wacker engines

        • Bigdomturbo951

          twst14 is gay. I have an 08 GT and they should have stuck with the body style. The 2010-11 look cool in the front with a weird martian fat ass. The rear quarter panel of this new Mustang is exactly like the Camaro. Then you look at the rear. Exact copy of a Camaro. The only thing I recognized on the car was the Pony. Now I just want to know how much for the new motor and will it fit in my car. Damn Ford, just when you were getting close. Don’t suck like Government Motors.

          • Bigdomturbo951

            Almost forgot. Does this mean the price on the Super Snake  will come down? I’ve got 10 grand burning a hole in my pocket.

          • jr

            this years super snake will go down an all the older years.but . as far as the eco boost they need to take a test drive in one .an then they will  really think twice about it . not only is it good on gas but its got alot of power. comes with a turbo 300hp an if you up grade it the power will jump up i agree about the looks but i bet its light an light is better. i wont take anything from yhe little motor the sound is not there but the power is

  • anon ymous

    A mustang without an 8cyl is like a Honda without the rice

    • Brandon

      Totally agree on that. The 4 cyl was so stupid,maybe a V6 for people that don’t need the V8 but nooooo 4 cyl again!!!

      • bobby jones

        can’t u both read well  ”a 5.4-liter 500-HP V8″ come on kids

        • stangit

          well YOU obviously can’t read well because he’s saying that he doesn’t want the 4cyl option at all, and that there should be a V6 in its place. He never said anything about a V8 not being available!

          • stangit

            and that’s if you’re talking to Brandon, if you’re talking to the other dumbass i agree with you lol

  • soccerman002

    I think they can do a proper IRS, seeing as how the car should be engineered around the suspension, rather than backwards as the 99-04 Cobra IRS was (made to fit where it really wasn’t intended).

  • Joe

    Definitely better than the last design you guys posted, but it still looks like a freakin camaro!

  • need2speed94

    IRS? please no. the design looks horrific. motor wise? after what 2011 brought, id love to see what ford will put in the mustangs to come. (5.4 4V please). what needs work is design. make the mustang the modern muscle car that *does look good. muscle cars need their box/pointy masculine look. these look chubby and futuristic.

    I like the 500HP part but that styling is atrocious keep the 2011 style.Hell even the 05-09 style is better than that crap

    Guess Ill have to trade my 2012 gt in a couple years so I can be the new kid on the block again..

    Looks not too shabby, interested in why they would think about putting the coyote to rest after one run, ummm don’t think so. I’m sure it will as fun to drive as the 2011, wish I had one myself actually.

  • Mark

    The back end doesn’t look too bad, but the front end looks horrid.  Put the 2011 front end on it with this back end and maybe we can talk…

  • Nv2012jid

    Disappointed in the body style, they are making the car look more exotic, and it is becoming increasingly similar to the camaro. Keep the classic muscle car look. plus whats up with this eco-boost crap. i understand gas is expensive, but come on. A mustang is not a mustang without that hefty V8.

    • J_drez91

      AMEN. I agree 100%.

    • Vipergtsrgt1

      I love my GT, but every EcoBoost I’ve driven had been great fun. I could see having one of each. The V8 would dominate the drag strip while the lighter nose on the turbo engine would be great for handling on the road course.

    • Jpeloquin

      Hold on buddy…  If you actually took the time to read the above article, you would have come across the part about the 500 HP 5.4L V8…  If you don’t want the 2.5L Turbo, then don’t get it!…  And spend your time bashing the competition.  Not the Mustang!

     Chevy camaro with a mustang emblem….WTF

      Camaros are 10 times better than any mustang will ever be fords envious of the beautiful camaro and they want to copy it

      • realstanger

        mustang will always be the best.. the gt500 has always been faster than any of the camaro’s fastest models. so you camaro fanboys have no room to talk

        • David Selley

          go back to late 60′s the gt 500 and the camero zl1 or the copo the cameros somked the mustang and i like mustangs get ur facts rite

      • Keith

        That’s an ignorant statement if i’ve ever heard one. What may I ask are you basing this off of? The power? Because you’d be wrong. Both Mustang models are faster than they’re competition. MPGs? Wrong again. both models have better miles per gallon than the Camaro. Handling? Ummm seriously? No. The only argument you can make is styling and that’s all personal preference. And if you base superiority by looks over functionality then you aren’t a true gear head so there isn’t much I can do for you. Also remember who died in 2002 because it sure wasn’t the mustang.

      • Stangrider1994

        yes, i will agree the camaro is a beautiful car, and i would consider owning one with the right conditions. But im a mustang guy, and wont settle for anything less(camaro) and your simply un-educated, so lets go to school. Lets see, first off, this picture is based off the guigiaro design; doesn’t sound too american, so how much could he know about classic american muscle car aspects, and incorporating them into a new design? not very Ford to begin with, so they’re not copying. second, last time i checked, the 2011 5.0 with 412 hp walked on the Camaro SS with 426hp in just about everything.You can check motortrend if you want. Oh and lets look at the technology, dual overhead cams with variable cam timing=5.0(412 hp) better than 6.2(426 hp). your 1.2 liters got you 14 horsepower more, and we still beat you! and how is that 10x better? its not!….go cry about it

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/TOXU5PQUQXS5LOQUFKEBSGD5LM Justin

          one of the finest arguements against camaro showboaters. It was an honor reading your post. well spoken!

        • Charles

          Don’t forget the price and gas man mustang wins those as well.

      • Jpeloquin

        Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha…  Camaro…  Hahaha…  Better than Mustang…  Hahahaha…  You’re a riot fella!!!…  I fail to see your argument.  So you think it looks better?  Good for you!  In what other respect is the Camaro BETTER?!?  And if you start spitting performance specs like it has more Horsepower.  Then quickly take a look at how fat it is too, before you make an even bigger fool of yourself!!!  Cause the new Camaros are Show Car first, Performance Car second!

      • Bncbush

        Generic Morons doesn’t have a clue about “retro”.  Their attempt at a retro look is beyond belief.  Nothing like the camaro of the sixties.
        Remember the Mustang was the first, best and still outselling the GM attempt at a pony car.

      • http://www.facebook.com/tommy.sturgis.98 Tommy Sturgis

        Right ! Stop dreaming. The stang was still selling when GM quit making the camaro it sucked then and it sucked when they brought it back . The mustang gt out performed the new camaro when GM brought it back & the mustang had less power . Check car&driver also motor trend

      • http://www.facebook.com/ken.clark.7921975 Ken Clark

        The Camaro is fugly and a refrigerator on wheels.

  • Stang drag racer

    I think I will have to wait to form my opinion on the ‘new’ body design but the thought of a 500 horsepowered Mustang, without having to go the Shelby route, is news worthy in itself. My 1st thought, after seeing this rendering was that it looks to much like a Camaro. As far as the IRS goes I think it would be better as an option to better the cars appeal to the guys that like to run in a straight line as well, the IRS would appeal more to the ‘canyon carver’ crowd. With that being said I am still a loyal Mustang guy, and will always be.

    • Mfournier

      I am sooo sick of the Drag car bull you can go fast in a straight line even with a IRS 
      Have you even seen a 1000hp vette get beat by any Live rear axel Mustang and I mean any thing street legal. You CAN make a IRS that is not crap off the line. And  to make the IRS a option on some special SVO option it only going to make it cost more. No the New Mustang MUST have a IRS and Be lighter then the current car I love my 2009 for it’s retro style but I also admit it’s weakness. MOST mustangs are street cars and streets have corners and BUMPS. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kyle-Fallacaro/1409121255 Kyle Fallacaro

    what you people fail to realize is the fact that its a concept! look at the 05-09 concept the 2010 concepts you’ll notice they all have this look at first. As far as people calling it a camaro well duh gm kept the camaro concept because it was such a big hit in transformers as well as the sting ray corvette. But thats just my input :)

  • Rick

    I don’t like it. I hope they fired the designer. 

  • Enrique

    it looks soo much like a camaro..wtf?

    it looks soo much like a camaro..wtf?

  • Halcyondrive

    As a long time mustang gear head I still don’t understand why you try to hide the hard lines of the mustang in the rear door area and the front of the quarter panel. A mustang has always stood out this design would be a replica of every sport car molded together with only the mustang badge. It’s a mustang make it stand out like a mustang should. This would be reminiscent of the mustang II where the car was made just to keep the name alive. The mustang II held its own but was considered a made over pinto. Give people something to talk about when they hear or see a.mustang, don’t make it just another car on the road.

  • Matt

    Hey this is amazing

  • Czoisin

    looks tooo Camaroish …LMAO  those drawings had to be from a GM guy

    • Y2kgt5spd

      GM? Bite your tongue!  Take a look at the Guigiaro Mustang show car from a few years back — that was the obvious influence.  http://www.moddedmustangs.com/giugiaro-concept-mustang.html

      • Johnnyboyyy23

        maybe he meant for GM to stand for Guigiaro Mustang? haha

      • Jpeloquin

        Completely agree!  And the Guigiaro Mustang pics came out well before the new Crapmaro.  So who stole who’s idea?!?!?…  If you still think it’s Ford, you’re still stupid.

        • stangit

          who gives a shit where the influence came from either way this concept sucks

    • BOS2010TON

      YEEES I AGREE FULLY…2000-2009 THEY HAD THEIR OWN LOOK…NOW IT JUZ LOOKS LIK THE CAMRAO N MUSTANG HAD KIDS

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/TOXU5PQUQXS5LOQUFKEBSGD5LM Justin

        very true its like hey why should there be two prominant domestic sports cars? lets just combine the camaro and the mustang and call it a day. Uh, how bout no

    • Jpeloquin

      You must be high as a kite!…  GM stole its ideas from Ford in the first place!  So the CAMARO was in fact drawn by a FORD guy…  Not the other way around.  Your ignorance is bliss!

  • Pcomey

    I don’t like the body style. To me, it;s too reminiscent of the new Camaro! Horrors!

  • Playa 25

    NOOOO!!! THIS LOOKS LIKE A CAMARO WITH A PONY BADGE WITH A BIT OR MERCEDES EURO LOOK!. they  should just maKE THE CAR LIKE THE 70S MUSTANG KINDA RETRO LOOK.  WITH THE REAR A BIT BIT SIMILAR TO CHALLENGER N REWORK THE FRONT END!

  • Mustang9807

    Looks like a bigger Toyota Scion TC front with Camaro rear quarters.  Only good part is the 5.4!

  • Dlascorpio21

    please god Ford gods no!!! no mustang should have the word ECO associated with it, and this design is the shrunken camaro with the wrong emblem. This is a confirmed joke! lol..besides i thought they were bringing back the GT350.

  • Fuzzyslippers

    So basically it’s the fox all over again: 2 engine options a v8 or 4 banger, lightest mustang ever, european inspired interior (compared to the fox’s japanese inspired interior), most technilogically advanced mustang to date, and it looks a little more rounded out than previous years like the fox, but it seriously lacks the fox body’s good looks

  • Bernie Ogren

    Not really.  It looks too much like an R8 or Lambo,  If i want to drive that body-style around, I’ll buy a Corvette.  I want a GT style muscle car-big and musclar looking!!  And leave the turbo idea on Porsches and GTRs!!  Muscle cars should have a big cammed, high-flowing power plant, or big super-charged engines, not a turbo!!!   But I agree about the independant suspension idea, but it also needs to be similar wieght to a Vette to compete on 1/4 mile or a circuit!!!  That’s why Corvettes and Porsches out corner Stangs.  They are way lighter than the Ford and the axel is a huge liability!!!  We need more carbon fiber fenders,quarter panels, hood, and trunk.  The roof should stay sheet metal-just that little bit of security feeling.   

    • J_drez91

      I agree

    • Andy_reml12

      the mustang is not in the same category as the corvette and porsches it is in the muscle car category and it is dominating that category at the moment

    • Prd306

      …..and at what price do you want all of this Bernie??

  • Anonymous

    the design is crap but it is just a concept. and a mustang is a muscle car its not meant to be “Eco boost” 4 cylinder crap. keep the v6 instead even it can get 30 mpg

  • Vicman16

    the back of this looks like an m6 or something

  • Nykmad

    Now I’m not a huge fan of the body but come on guys ya a 4 Banger but think later down the road…… cheap v8 swap lol

  • Jamesyak52

    looks horrible. DENIED GO AWAY FOREVER!!

    Yup….Starting to look like the Camaro…..Guess GM was right if Ford is copying.
