The Mustang has been a favorite amongst car enthusiasts for decades. The car is unbelievably powerful and looks amazing. This unique combination of power and appearance is hard to find nowadays. The best part is that Mustangs are quite reasonably priced. With the 2015 Mustang, Ford has kicked it up a notch.

The 2015 Ford Mustang features multiple engine variants to suit the needs of everyone who dreams of owning one. If you want a car that is economical and also perfect as a daily driver, you can go for the lower displacement engine variant. If you want immense power at your disposal, you have the option to buy a Mustang that houses a massive V-8 engine. No matter which 2015 Ford Mustang variant you go for, you will love the car. Let’s look at what Ford is offering with their new beast, the 2015 Mustang:

Engine Specifications

One of the best things about the 2015 Ford Mustang is it offers multiple engine variants. Some engine variants offer superb performance, while others focus purely on economy. The most basic engine variant of the 2015 Mustang is an inline-type engine with four cylinders. The displacement of this engine is 2.3-liters and it is paired with a Turbocharger and an Intercooler system for power. This engine incorporates the Ecoboost technology.

The second engine variant is slightly more powerful than this one. This engine is a V-type with six cylinders. This engine has a displacement of 3.7 liters. This engine does not have a turbocharger system, but it generates immense power on its own. The final engine variant is a massive V-type with eight cylinders. The displacement of this engine is a staggering 5 liters.

Engine Performance

Each of the engine variants generates immense power. The most impressive engine is the 2.3-liter I-4. Even though this engine is the smallest, it uses a Turbocharger and Intercooler system paired with the Ecoboost technology to dish out an amazing 310 horsepower. The torque rating of this engine is 320 pounds per feet. Since the car has not been introduced as yet, the exact gas mileage rating is not known. But you can be sure this engine variant won’t be a gas gulper.

The 3.7-liter engine variant, on the other hand, generates 300 ponies. This engine variant is suited for those who enjoy the feel of a V-type engine. After all, not many engines give you the same driving pleasure as a V-type. This engine gives 19 miles to a gallon in the city and 29 on the highway. The most impressive engine variant is the 5.0-liter V-8. This engine generates a massive 435 ponies and 400 pounds of torque. For an engine of its stature, it is rather economical. This engine gives 15 miles to a gallon in the city and 26 miles on the highway.

Transmission Options

The standard transmission across all trims of the 2015 Ford Mustang is a 6-speed manual. Since this car is meant for people who enjoy driving, there are no automatic variants reported so far. The drivetrain of the Mustang is a rear-wheel which gives it incredible stability. There is no doubt this muscle car handles like a charm.

Exterior Styling

The exterior styling of the 2015 Ford Mustang is different from its previous variant. Ford has finally let go of the round headlamps. Even though it may seem like the Mustang has lost its touch after ditching the traditional headlamps, it still looks amazing. The car retains the large grille, but the lights are smaller and stretch towards the sides. This gives it an even more aggressive appearance.

All in all, the 2015 Ford Mustang can be a great family vehicle since it offers a great interior as well. Lots of legroom and the ability to seat up to 4 passengers are among the plus points of its interior.
