The 2015 Mustang was revealed today in six cities in four different continents but still remains an American car. The sixth generation, 50th anniversary Mustang unveiled by Ford Motor Company executives. The revealing of the Mustang took place in New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Spain, Australia, and Michigan. Ford’s goal is to capitalize the Mustang name and make it a “halo car” to draw attention to other cars in the Ford lineup. The new 2015 Mustang is lower, sleeker, and wider but has the same big and bold front end and broad shoulders. Mustang chief engineer stated, “We find globally that everyone wants that piece of Americana. We designed a Mustang and decided to take it global. We did not design a global Mustang.” The Mustang will go on sale first in the U.S. and Canada towards the end of 2014. China and Europe will have Mustangs go on sale sometime in 2015. The Mustang can be sold as both a fastback and convertible. The difference between the new Mustang and the previous generations is upgraded interior, some high-tech features, and a new 2.3 liter turbocharged engine, which is the latest member of Ford’s EcoBoost engine group. The new 2015 Mustang will also get an independent rear suspension, more intense brakes, and paddle shifters.
