Do you think all muscle cars as big, heavy, with an obsolete suspension and an enormously powerful engine under the bonnet? Well, most of the muscle cars are just like this, but there are very good chances that the 2015 Ford Mustang will be totally different.

The Pony Car is arguably the most expected vehicle of the year: there have been lots of gossip about its technical capabilities and performance. Renderings and spy photos were circulating for months now. The sixth generation of Ford Mustang is now unveiled, and its mechanical components, systems, as well as its looks are definitely bringing new life into Ford’s performance icon.

The 2015 Ford Mustang was inspired by the first-generation car. Its heritage can be discovered in the profile’s flow, as well as a few details: the front grille, and the hood with heat extractors. The car takes on a fastback shape in the back, with a raked roof line and vertical lines and a set of haunches instead of the classic crease. The aggressive appearance of the new Ford Mustang is enhanced thanks to its wider and lower body.

There are three engines available for the 2015 Ford Mustang. The base engine is the well-known 3.7-liter V6, while the GT version will have a 5.0-liter V8 under the bonnet. The big news is that a relatively small, four-cylinder engine will be also available: the 2.3-liter EcoBoost with an output of 305 horsepower will be the favorite choice of customers who like the looks of the Mustang, but never intend to drive it really fast. The engines are paired up with the previous generation’s Getrag six-speed manual gearbox. Also there will be a six-speed automatic, with paddle shifters.

Another area where the 2015 Ford Mustang has been totally revised is the suspension. In the back, it is all independent. In the front, there is also a new double-ball-joint independent setup with MacPherson struts. The brakes are also new, the base car having 12.6-inch front and rear rotors, with two-pistons calipers in front and single-piston units on the back.
