With the 2015 Ford Mustang pinned for a world debut at the Detroit Motor Show 2014 in just 6 months time, new reports have emerged from an Australian publication suggesting that down the road, the 2015 Ford Mustang could be available with an insane 10-speed automatic transmission.
Additionally, Wheels Magazine, has quoted some power figures for the 2015 Ford Mustang which seem to be fairly accurate to us. To start with, it’s claimed that the small and base four-cylinder EcoBoost engine found in low-spec 2015 Ford Mustangs will delivery just 248hp while the next engine option, the 3.7-liter V6 version, will produce upwards of 300hp. These reports contradict previous reports suggesting that the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine could deliver upwards of 350hp. Either way, it’ll be well shy of what Ford has planned for the next-generation Shelby Mustang GT500.
As it stands, the 2013 Shelby Mustang GT500 is the most powerful road-car produced by Ford delivering an insane 662hp. However, Ford is expected to upgrade that somewhere into the 680hp region thanks to a slightly tuned 5.8-liter supercharged V8 engine. The other V8 option set to be available for the 2015 Ford Mustang will be the 5.0-liter V8 Coyote engine claimed to deliver 429hp.
Returning to the ten-speed transmission, it’s claimed that Ford and General Motors will join forces to create the system with the obvious aim of reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
