2015 Mustang Revealed?
Renderings purporting to be of the 2015 Ford Mustang are based on spy photos and CAD images of the actual sport coupe, according to Web site Mustang6G.com.
The digital preview of the 2015 Mustang shows a front end design previously revealed in spy photography, accompanied by rear views based on the CAD images. The illustrations depict distinctively louvered tail lights, a central triangular-framed reverse/light- in the lower rear bumper and two rear Euro-spec fog lamps just above the exhaust tips.
The renderings indicate a sleeker overall silhouette with an angled fastback rear roofline which extends deeper into the trunk lid and a slightly rounded rear valence to give the car a sportier appearance.
The 2015 Mustang, which is expected to go on sale next spring, will replace the current solid rear axle with a better-handling independent rear suspension. Engines slated for the new pony car include 2.7-liter and 3.0-liter V-6s and perhaps a 4-cylinder turbocharged mill that makes as much as 320 hp.
