Spotted 2015 Mustang And There Is Something Different About It
We can hear you say – whats so different about it – it looks like a 2013 Mustang GT – Well yes it does until you get a closer look. Here are some shots from the internet as reported by varous websites. These shots show a possible 2015 Ford Mustang GT disguised as a 2013 GT – experts say the 2013 Mustang body work has large gaps and that could mean it is just a skin to cover what is probably the new 2015 chassis. What makes it so special? Well take a look at what’s not there: a live rear-axle, – Its gone and replaced with IRS similar to the 99-04 Mustang SVT Cobra set up.
Here is photographic evidence that the 2015 Mustang will finally ditch the old live rear axle setup in favor of an independent rear suspension. As previously reported on the internet, it was expected for the next-generation Mustang to use a version of the Control Blade trailing-arm setup used down in Australia by the Ford Falcon. Thanks, to this picture, we can pretty much confirm that will be the case when the 2015 Mustang is revealed in 2014, most likely at the car’s 50th anniversary at the New York auto show.
Expect the 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 to carry over from the recently refreshed 2013 Mustang, but not much else. There have been rumors that the Mustang will use a range of turbocharged EcoBoost engines, including even a turbo-four for an SVO model. The 3.7-liter V-6 may or may not reappear; the crystal ball is still hazy on that matter. What it is clear on is that the 2015 Mustang will use Ford’s new Kinetic 2.0 styling language, as seen on the Evos concept car and the 2013 Fusion. According to Ford’s VP of global product design, Hau Thai-Tang, the next Mustang won’t eschew its heritage-based look but will also have a clear familial link.
