The 2015 Mustang is estimated to arrive at Leif Johnson Ford in September of 2014! In honor of this upcoming arrival, we wanted to share a few facts about this snazzy new Ford with our followers. Read on, folks.
Fact 1: Ford is going all out and bringing a touch screen with its MyFord Touch infotainment system. The car also gets new technological additions such as blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert systems, both of which will make your commute much easier.
Fact 2: This Mustang is both lower and wider than its ancestors. This makes for better cornering capability and will be easier to handle for more drivers.
Fact 3: Ford has gotten rid of the solid rear axle every found in Mustangs of generations past. This gives a new degree of your Mustang will be much more pleasant on rough pavement and less likely to hang the back half out in corners.
Fact 4: A new chassis on the Mustang allows for equipment that will hugely change how the car operates on street and track. It cost Ford a pretty penny, but we think it was worth it.
Fact 5: A Mustang just wouldn’t be a Mustang without that V8 roaring under the hood. Ford is making he same 5.0-liter “Coyote” V8 even more powerful than before.t Ford says it will also be more efficient due to a ‘new intake manifold for improved efficiency at low speeds. It will make “at least” 420 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. Wow.We like the sound of that!
Fact 6: The style is new too, y’all. Ford is going for “evolutionary” over “revolutionary,”keeping things similar to the old car. Two noticeable differences between the old and new is this: The new has smoother lines and the same Aston Martin-influenced face found on the Fusion sedan.
Fact 7: This Mustang is the first time that Ford is offering a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 305 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque or more.
Fact 8: It’s the first Mustang to be sold worldwide. Our personal opinion is that the best place in the world to buy one would be your local Leif Johnson Ford, right here in Austin, Texas. But we might be just a little biased.
