Six Generations Later and the Ford Mustang DNA Continues to Shine

By | May 28, 2014
Say what you will about the look of the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang--we certainly have--but it does one thing right. Over the past generations, the styling and design has continued to change and evolve to stay modern and relevant, but elements true to the Mustang heritage remain visible. For us, the new design moves too far away from what makes the Mustang stand out from the rest of the Ford lineup, moving towards a generic look that may not be the best thing for the pony car. Regardless of that, when you look at some of the classic models, you'll see the same tri-bar taillights and shark-nose grill, although the latter has been given some serious changes. "All great sports cars are living, breathing machines that reflect both their drivers and their creators. Like a living organism, they must change and adapt, or go extinct," said Moray Callum, Ford vice president of global design, in a recent statement.
While we love a good fastback, we can't help but think the new Mustang looks too much like the Fusion in the front end. Instead of an aggressive design, the front is muted compared to other models in the Mustang family. But the automaker can't make everyone happy.
