Last week, spy photographers captured a full bodied 2015 Mustang mule. Until now, we have only seen pieces of the new Mustang being tested. Finally, Ford is testing the full bodied car, and it is interesting.
Despite the heavy camouflage and padding, the new Mustang it is clearly smaller. Rumors had suggested that Ford is planning to cut the weight and dimensions of the car. Many have criticized the modern muscle cars for being too heavy, and a smaller Mustang would certainly be welcomed.
In addition to the new dimensions, the 2015 Mustang is expected to (finally) have independent suspension and an available Eco-Boost 4-cylinder engine. The 5.0 V8 is expected to stay in the GT model. Rumors have also suggested the top Mustang will drop the Shelby name and will no longer be turbo-charged. This comes following rumors that the engine in the current GT500 would not fit in the Mustangs new engine bay.
The 2015 is expected to be unveiled by the end of 2013, possibly at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show in November. It is likely the Mustang will be available in early 2014, just in time for the Mustang’s 50th Anniversary.
