F-35 Mustang Concept To Be Auctioned

This fighter jet plane concept has been done on a few Mustangs over the years and now the 2015 Ford Mustang GT F-35 Lightning II themed concept car is the latest to show off the great new lines of the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. This car will push out the standard naturally aspirated 435 horsepower at the flywheel – but it is the really cool stealthy design and colors that will catch everyones eye when it is auctioned off for charity at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual Gathering of Eagles charity event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Proceeds of the aution will go to a program that helps get young kids interested in aviation. We really like the colors used especially the yellow window tint, wonder if its legal?

The 2015 Pony Car Wars Are Heating Up

The 2015 Pony Car Wars Are Heating Up In Detroit

Now that Ford released their “Official” 2015 Ford Mustang specifications and performance details, here are the Official Detroit Muscle cars by the numbers and there are some interesting facts here that are quite surprising. First of all the big three pony cars are putting out more and more horsepower and torque every year while still getting better gas mileage and secondly the new 2015 Ford 5.0 Coyote engine is leading the pack under the hood horsepower wise beating out the Camaro 6.2L and 5.7L Dodge Hemi power plant. (see all the numbers below ) The other big announcement this week is the fact that the new soon to be released Dodge “Hellcat” will put out an insane 707 Horsepower.
These are how the numbers are shaping up so far in motor city:

The V8 Numbers
Right now, the 5.0-liter Mustang GT has the lead among Detroit’s V8 muscle cars in the power department, though there’s a caveat. The 435-hp output of the 5.0-liter ‘Stang is ahead of the 6.2-liter LS3 V8 Camaro SS, which is rated at 426 ponies. It’s also better than the 5.7-liter V8 Challenger R/T’s 375 hp.
But, it trails the 6.4-liter V8 used in the 392 Challenger, which makes 485 hp. Blue Oval enthusiasts could argue the 392 is a sort of “Hellcat Lite,” and not the GT’s true competitor.
The tables are turned in the torque department, as the V8 Stang summons 400 lb-ft, which is behind the Camaro SS (420 lb-ft), the Challenger R/T (410 lb-ft) and the 392 (475 lb-ft).
Of course, we’re just talking about the 2015 Mustang’s competition, and since we don’t know what’s in store for the SVT-tuned example yet, we’re leaving out any comparisons to the Camaro Z/28 and ZL1, as well as the previously mentioned, 707-hp Challenger Hellcat.

The V6 Numbers
Among V6s, the Camaro is the decided leader in power, boosting 323 hp, well ahead of the Challenger’s 305 hp and the now-detuned Mustang, which dropped to an even 300 hp this year.
The Blue Oval does pack the most torque among six-cylinders with 280 lb-ft, just ahead of the Camaro’s 278 lb-ft and the Challenger’s 268 lb-ft.
The Wildcard
Of course, we’re referring to Ford’s EcoBoost inline four-cylinder, which pushes out 310 hp and an impressive 320 lb-ft from a turbocharged 2.3-liter mill. Neither Dodge nor Chevy have anything similar in their current muscle car lines, and if there are any undecided potential buyers in this died-in-the-wool segment, it could prove to be a game-changer.

On The Scales:
The turbo four is also the lightest Mustang and the lightest car among these offerings from Detroit, weighing 3,524 pounds. The V6 ‘Stang is just two pounds heavier though, which puts it well ahead of the V6 Camaro (3,702 pounds) and Challenger (3,834 pounds).
This trend continues among the V8s, as the Mustang GT is 3,705 pounds – just three pounds heavier than the lightest Camaro V6. The eight-cylinder Chevy comes in at 3,908 pounds, which is still lighter than the Challenger’s weight of 4,082 pounds.

2015 Ford Mustang Specs Released

2015 Ford Mustang Specs Released

After much speculation Ford have released their official production power and weight specifications, along with some other production information. The New 2015 Ford Mustang is one of the most anticipated new car releases in recent history as Ford get set to sell the iconic pony car across America to the global masses. One of the most interesting engine options for us here at Brothers Performance is the new 2.3 liter inline 4 cylinder Eco-Boost that will pump out 310 Horsepower and 320 ft-lb of torque. Compare that to the V6 option that will produce 300 horsepower and 280 ft-lb of torque, pretty healthy numbers for both considering that 20 years ago the  5.0 V8 Mustangs were only barely pushing 225 Horsepower. Both engine options offer approximately the same power to weight ratio and actual front to rear weight distribution is Fords best ever for a Mustang and will be 52 front/ 48 rear, so both would appear to promise impressive performance and handling.

Our choice here would be the Eco boost option based on the relative ease of power improvements that this engine will offer. The twin scroll turbo promises quick throttle response across the RPM range by maximizing the exhaust pulse energy in a single turbo set up. This little four banger is already pushing out 135 horsepower per liter and we know that tuners and aftermarket manufacturers can’t wait to get their hands on this to see how much more power can be spun out of this potent addition to the Mustang line up.
The other engine option is the impressive and solid 5.0 Coyote V8 that is pretty much the same engine spec’d by Ford since 2011. Compression remains at 11:1 but the S550’s cylinder heads are redesigned for better breathing without the need expensive CNC porting and the intake ports are revised for larger valves. The camshafts that are now good for 13mm exhaust lift (even more that the Boss cams) and the Intake manifold has some modification and design revisions to the charge motion control valves that maximize combustion efficiency for better MPG.
We are excited to see the first road tests and featured articles in print and on TV/Youtube as soon as the first production Mustangs roll off the assembly line, and we will bring those to you here on our news blog – Check out the other specs and information released by Ford below.
2015 Horsepower & Torque:
Mustang Ecoboost: 310 hp, 320 lb-ft
Mustang V-6: 300 hp, 280 lb-ft – Looses 5 HP and Flat on Torque
Mustang GT: 435 hp, 400 lb ft – Gains 15HP and 10ft-lb Torque
( All Numbers are Flywheel based Numbers – Rear wheel numbers will be vary based on transmission installed in car – Manual transmissions deliver more rear wheel HP + TQ than Automatics based on additional power loss in the automatic transmission)
Weight:
Mustang EcoBoost: 3,532 lbs (manual), 3,524 lbs (automatic)
Mustang V-6: 3,526 lbs (manual), 3,530 lbs (automatic) Gains 30lb in Manual trim and 12lbs in Auto Trim
Mustang GT: 3,705 lbs (manual), 3,729 lbs (automatic) Gains 87lbs in Manual Trim and 54lbs in Auto Trim

2015 Mustang Will Debut Sync Plus 911

New 2015 Ford Mustang Sync Features

2015 Mustang Will Debut Sync Plus 911

911 Assist™ is a subscription-free emergency feature included in more than 7 million Ford vehicles equipped with SYNC® technology; with the customer’s consent, it helps connect vehicle occupants directly to a local 911 operator following an airbag deployment or if the fuel supply shuts off
Enhancements to 911 Assist, debuting on the 2015 Ford Mustang, will provide dispatchers with additional information beyond available GPS coordinates, including a crash description and safety belt usage
When introduced in 2008, 911 Assist was the industry’s first automotive technology to call 911 directly following a crash instead of relaying calls through a third party, saving valuable time
New Ford SYNC® 911 Assist™ features debuting on the 2015 Ford Mustang will offer emergency dispatchers more potentially vital information to better inform first responders en route to an accident.

“911 Assist uses a mobile phone connected to SYNC to call 911 directly when needed,” said David Hatton, global product leader and electrical engineer, Ford Connected Services. “With enhanced data, the system will provide even more detail about a crash to aid in the dispatch of the appropriate resources.”

For example, if a dispatcher knows that both front safety belts were fastened at the time of a high-speed collision, he or she may decide to send an additional ambulance directly to the scene. Safety belt monitoring varies based on the airbag systems in the vehicle.  Continue reading
