Only two weeks ago Ford told the world that they were not planning a 2014 Mustang Boss 302. Muscle car enthusiasts will look forward to the 2015 Mustang for a replacement to that model.
The official introduction is of course some quite some time away, but our colleagues from Motor Authority recently managed to capture a few spy shots of the next generation Mustang testing on American soil. We can expect the new car to feature several design changes, but the biggest changes will be found under the hood and in the interior.
Expected engines, with an eye on the environmental aspect, are an EcoBoost 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine followed by a similar but 2.3 liter unit. Next in the line-up will be a turbo powered V6 and as flagship we expect Ford to bring the GT500 with a 5.8 liter V8 creating an output up to 650hp.

Looks like the same old Mustang to me.
Quite frankly, I have doubts about consumer interest in a 4cylinder Mustang…it’s going to have to be a big-time fuel sipper at a low price, or it’s going to sit on the showroom floor as buyers walk by to get a high HP V6 or V8.
Thats my gripe as well. It looks like ford is simply going to do a reskin of the current model. IMO thats a terrible mistake. the 50th anniversary mustang should be a true ALL NEW clean sheet car.
The current car/chassis is dated! so why on earth are they once again playing it cheap!? Makes no scence!. The current car is far too bulky too big too top heavy. Its proportions and wheelbase needs to be changed. Lower lighter sleeker wider, Car and driver has a fantastic rendering of what 2015 should be!. Here is nothing more but the same soup with a new facia. common ford you cant screw this up!.
This is a mule, and if you cant tell that the front end has been dramatically changed than your blind. The grill is much larger and the headlights are a different shape. The body has not been touched, but that’s because the side most likely hasn’t been made yet. They probably wanted to make sure the front fascia worked well for air intake, engine cooling and such.
