This is one of those special moments in history, for both die-hard Ford fanatics and Mustang enthusiasts alike. Today, Mustang6G has revealed the highly controversial, yet extremely guarded front end design of the 2015 Ford Mustang. For good or ill, this is your new S550 front end for the next 10 years.
According to Ford inside sources reporting to Edmunds.com, The 2015 Mustang is set to lose at least 400lbs off the current body weight, but that’s not all.
What you’re looking at here is another 2015 Mustang prototype cruising around Detroit. Spotting the new Mustang in the wild hasn’t been a difficult task lately, but what sets this new video footage apart is the glorious rumble of its V8.
Rumors and a wide range of speculation have been flowing through the Mustang community these days, mostly centered around what the 2015 Mustang redesign has in store. Now, it looks like the design and motor lineup might not be the only thing Ford is changing come 2015/2016–The GT500 as we know it is rumored to be called the “SVT Cobra” while Ford plans to produce the GT350 in-house alongside the rebirth of the Mach 1. Yeah, those are some strong words; let’s hope the source reporting this from inside Ford wasn’t kidding around (who wouldn’t want to see a new Mach 1?).
Details about the 2015 Mustang and its redesign have been leaking out of Dearborn steadily over the past few weeks, leaving small clues and much to be desired about what is to come. This video now gives us the first real look at a fully functioning and driving 2015 Mustang. Is it a V6 or a V8? Hard to tell, but those big, beefy brakes in the front are definitely something to gander at.
Finally. Fresh spy photos of the 2015 Mustang are starting to roll out, helping to confirm many of the strong rumors we’ve all been hearing over the past two years. These snap shots provided by Autospotters to Jalopnik show a current-day Mustang test mule hiding the guts of a 2015 Mustang. Chalk this up as Exhibit B of the 2015 IRS Mustang proof file as we’ve already caught photos of an IRS in a 2015 test mule in the past. Judging by the photos, it also looks like the guys at Ford might have a few more changes up their sleeve.
If you can’t wait for the 2015 Mustang to arrive, it’s safe to assume you have heard all the rumors, digested endless amounts of conflicting reports, studied spy photos and listened to educated opinions before coming to the conclusion that no one outside of Ford really knows what power plant the redesigned Mustang is going to have. Now it seems we finally have something to hand our hats on.
