The Newest Generation of Mustangs Has Arrived: What Has and Hasn’t Changed

By Sahid Fawaz

Mustangs have long stood as a symbol of the quality and craftsmanship of American-made, union-made cars. 

And this year brings the sixth generation of Mustangs, with an upgraded look and innovative features.

Body:

While much of the car’s style remains similar to the fifth generation, Ford made the new generation a bit sleeker. The differences are readily apparent in the comparison photos below, with the most notable one being the introduction of slimmer headlights in the 2015 version.

2014 Mustang:

2015 Mustang: 

Interior:

The interior did not see a dramatic change in the 2015 version. You still get selectable drive modes, the voice-activated Sync technology, and the classic sporty look. 

Under the Hood:

The big news is the introduction of a 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbo four cylinder engine that cranks out 300 HP. A four cylinder in a Mustang? The jury is still out on whether the feature will be embraced by Mustang lovers but we have a feeling Ford will know very soon whether it is something that the consumer loves or hates.

Ford will continue to offer a 3.7L V-6 and 5.0L V8, with 300 HP and 420 HP respectively.

Price: 

The MSRP range for the 2015 Mustang is $23,800 to $41,800 according to the Ford website. 

Conclusion:

If you liked the last generation of Mustangs, you’ll probably like the new one as well as Ford has kept much of what appealed to drivers while making the style a bit sleeker and providing an EcoBoost option. And best of all, the Mustang remains American-made, union-made, which means that your purchase goes to supporting to good middle class jobs!
