The all-new Ford Mustang was today simultaneously revealed around the globe
in six cities on four continents. Loaded with innovative technologies and
delivering world-class levels of performance, the next chapter in the life of
the iconic pony car thus begins today.
Mustang's impact goes well beyond the 9 million-plus cars sold in its 50 years of continuous production. It has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games, and is the world's most-liked vehicle on Facebook. For the first time ever, Ford will bring Mustang to customers in key parts of Europe and Asia.
"We crafted this car with the goal of creating a contemporary interpretation of Mustang - an American automotive icon that symbolizes optimism and freedom for millions of people around the world," said Jim Farley, executive vice president of Ford global marketing, sales and service and Lincoln.
2015 Mustang's All-New Exterior Design
The clean-sheet design of both Mustang fastback and convertible evokes the essential character of the brand, retaining key design elements - including the long sculpted hood and short rear deck - with contemporary execution.
Several key design features define the all-new Mustang, including a lower, wider stance with a reduction in roof height, and wider rear fenders and track. The 2015 Ford Mustang also marks the return of Mustang fastback with a sleeker profile enabled by more steeply sloped windshield and rear glass.
At the rear, the Mustang has a three-dimensional, tri-bar taillamps with sequential turn signals.
Mustang convertible drivers will appreciate the standard multilayer insulated cloth top that gives the car a more upscale appearance and a quieter cabin. The new top lowers twice as fast as before, and has a sleeker profile when folded for open-air motoring.
The information and controls an active driver needs are all readily accessible in the aviation-inspired cockpit, which is executed with the highest degree of craftsmanship ever found in a Mustang. Large, clear instrumentation puts vehicle information right in front of the driver in the roomier cabin, while improved ergonomics and tactile switches and knobs provide better control. The added width and a new rear suspension contribute to improved shoulder and hip room for passengers, and a more usefully shaped trunk can accommodate two golf bags.
