Leaked! 2015 Ford Mustang Spills Out on Internet Two Days Ahead of Schedule

By Jacob Brown | December 03, 2013
Perhaps the most highly anticipated new car to debut this year since the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette made its entrance back in January, the 2015 Ford Mustang has been kept under wraps for some time without a whole lot of it leaking out to the public. That is, until now. The new pony car has been caught in the pages of a rival publication that was intercepted ahead of the car's December 5 introduction.
In the article, it was stated that the 2015 Ford Mustang will drop approximately 200 pounds, incorporate a fully independent rear suspension across its entire lineup for the first time, have a standard keyless ignition system, and selectable drive modes. It will also have absolutely massive 15-inch front brake rotors on the GT model, which will come equipped with a carryover 5.0-liter V-8. Still, with fewer pounds to move around, its performance ought to be blistering.
For one of the few times in the Mustang's 50-year history, this smaller, more agile model will be sold across the world, and it will come equipped with the V-8 in GT models, a carryover 3.7-liter V-6, or a new turbocharged EcoBoost 2.3-liter four-cylinder that should produce about 275 horsepower. We don't yet know which engine will be considered its base powerplant, and the hotter Cobra and GT350 models have yet to be revealed. However, with the current Ford Mustang starting at around $23,000 and the smaller, lighter, and less powerful Scion FR-S coming in a around $25,000, we wouldn't be surprised to see the small-engined Mustangs creep upward in addition to the rest of the lineup.
We'll receive more details in the coming days when the 2015 Ford Mustang is officially revealed in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and elsewhere. It will be interesting to see how the crosstown rivals from Dodge and Chevrolet respond to this thoroughly rethought Mustang. Source: Mustang6g.com
