Ford gets it right with the 2015 Mustang, thoroughly upgrading the historic muscle car inside and out while providing a welcome dose of the latest technology.
For 2015, Ford has completely redesigned its iconic pony car, an event that's happened only a handful of times in the car's 50-year history. This time, it's produced a visually trimmer, meaner sports car with a new mission: take the Mustang mystique to global markets.
Ford has sold the Mustang overseas before, but this new one — with its fully independent suspension, optional turbocharged four-cylinder engine and dramatically improved build quality — is made to challenge not only American competitors at home, but foreign coupes on foreign shores.
The 2015 model is a major redo compared with the outgoing 2014 (compare the two here), with new powertrains, a new interior, new technology and more. Yet a new Chevrolet Camaro is on the way and Dodge has just updated the 2015 Challenger. Is the new Mustang enough of an update to regain its status as king of the pony-car hill? I've driven two of the three powertrains available in the 2015 Mustang — the EcoBoost four-cylinder and the big V-8 (the V-6 has not yet been made available to sample) — and here's how they stack up.
