Following the recent release of the brand new and heavily upgraded 2015 Ford Mustang, the first online configurator for the iconic American muscle car has been released. While this configurator is only very simple with it not featuring every option available, it does provide us with a great insight into the various colours available.
Colours listed are Race Red, Competition Orange, Triple Yellow, Deep Impact Blue, Ruby Red, Black, Magnetic, Guard, Ingot Silver and Oxford White. From launch, the 2015 Ford Mustang will also be available with 20-inch machined wheels, 18-inch units, 19-inch ones finished in Gloss Black as well as the Premium 19-inch option.
Under the hood, the 2015 Ford Mustang is available with three engines consisting of an upgraded 3.7-liter V6, a brand new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and a more powerful 5.0-liter V8 powerplant. The new EcoBoost engine features direct injection, variable cam timing and a turbocharger to help deliver more than 305 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, the 3.7-liter V6 pumps out “at least” 300 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. The top-of-the-line 5.0-liter V8 found in the new Mustang GT produces more than 420 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. All of these engines can be mated to an updated manual transmission as well as a reworked automatic featuring steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.
While these updates are important, the changes to improve the new Mustang’s handling are arguably even more important. For the first time, the 2015 Ford Mustang features all-new independent rear and front suspension systems with a new subframe up front helping to stiffen the structure while also reducing weight and ultimately improving handling.
