2015 Mustang uncovered pics...front end.
Pics at link.
Hmm. Honestly, I like the cleaner look of the 2012 Mustang better.
A Muslin Mustang? Wearing a Burka?
check to see if it has any hump(s) in the middle?
Why don’t they just go back and make Eleanor?
Sad to know that a brand new car needs to be held together with duct tape. Not a good move there, Ford.
I agree, the clean retro look is much better than this. This looks like a Clinton-era mustang. And that’s not a good kind of retro.
Funeral hearse model? Cool!
Nah... 2005 had the right idea. Then they went and gussied it all up again. The newer headlights and taillights ARE cool.. but they started taking a “Retro” look and then seemed to say “But it’s so dated!” and added more LEDs.
And that’s basically what ALL car manufacturers have been doing lately. Just adding LEDs to stuff.
That said, the newer one pictured here sure has a nice face up front - But it’s the SAME F*CKING FRONT THAT’S ON EVERYTHING !
Finally, ... They registered it ? New York plates. That MUST mean that they have crashed a few models to get some sort of approval.
challenger is still better.
I think it’s interesting that Aston Martin seemed to copy the 70s Mustangs with their 80’s V8 coupe - But now Ford has gone and returned the favor by copying the 2000’s Aston Martin DB front end for their Mustang.
Well played, Ford. Well played.
(Too bad I no longer buy UAW-built prods)
Most LED DRLs are annoying and repellent.
Some look like cheap Christmas lights. Others are too bright. Doesn't make me want to look at the car.
If it actually looks as good as this rendering, I might buy one. Still would prefer to have a ‘69 though.
Although I'd buy a Harley instead.
I wish my mom still had her 71 Mach 1 .......:(
Please ping me when you've found the new 2015 bad-azz retro Yugo.
IMHO, it’s gone too far away from the original lines. The original “redesign” that harkened back to the late-60s Mustang was terrific, and even the next-gen version of that was still “close enough”. The car was instantly recognizable, and made for great marketing. This latest look though, to me, seems to have lost the plot, and yes, once more we see the “angry car” look cropping up. Maybe it’s time for Ford to do a look at the 71-73 design language.
No reason to think that is accurate, though.
I think it looks cool.
I am starting to get more impressed with Ford.
In addition to not being bailed out by the government, I got my wife a Lincoln with EcoBoost which is twin turbos on a V6.
Runs like a Comanche. FT 4 WD. Tech up the ying yang. Great for high country here in Colorado because at altitude turbos do NOT lose power.
This is coming from a 20 year Toyota/Lexus guy.
Maybe even an Aston Martin
Is that the actual look of the 2015 Mustang?
I hate DRLs in general.
muslim mustang! LOLOOL!!!
I agree, 2005 was the best “retro”....this new one doesn’t do it for me.
That’s the new Mustang? Looks like a modernized Festiva
Incorporating the Fusion front end.
They did it in the Fusion 1st.
Six months ago I went to the dealership to buy a Tauras SHO. As I walking back to sign the paperwork I noticed the Fusion.
“Awesome look! I’ll take that instead”.
Salesman wanted to know if I wanted a test drive.
“Nope. Been driving Ford all my life and this car looks fun and I’m in a hurry”.
Love it and will get the Police Interceptor next year.
Instead of moving
Mustang toward Fusion:
Fusion to Mustang.
Looks like they ruined it for sure. They will probably offer a Mustang 4 door sedan too.
I drove home Monday afternoon in my 2008 F250 with a 6” lift kit on 37” tires. I’m getting ready to pull in my driveway and across the street is a Ford Fusion with it’s right front tire in a ditch and both back tires up in the air.
I asked the guy if he wants me to pull him out but he say’s he’s got a friend coming to help.
A few minutes later a Prius shows up, guy get’s out with a chain, puts it on the Fusion and the ass end of the Prius, hops back in and pulls the Fusion out.
I looked at the Ford owner and said that was really sad and made us Ford owners look bad... he laughed but took pictures of the whole thing.
It is an Aston Martin. All the Fords are starting to look like them.
So, no-one has Photoshopped the Klingon ridges onto a car yet and called it the Klingon Turbo or something?
Take a look @ the sheet metal real close. This thing is meant to deceive, to many lumps in the hood where it meets the lights. This may have been a cooling test, so the grill opening maybe the only real clue. 2nd, where was this taken AZ test track or Dearborn? Either way, they went to great lengths to get a camera above a wall to take these shots and I’ll assume Ford would be Very Pissed... Notice the pattern black and white paint, that is real high tech stuff...
There are only so many ways you can shape sheet metal (or mold plastic) and all the good ways were used up in the late 60s and early 70s.
Looks like a flattened Fusion.
I like my 2011 much more.
The Shelby GT500 eats challengers for lunch.
Shelby said it best, “secretary’s car”.
Needs a barf alert.
“Ford has gone and returned the favor by copying the 2000s Aston Martin DB front end”
Yep - European Ford’s copied it first, back when Ford owned Aston Martin. Finally getting a real sports car to mimic it six years after they sold the company.
Lower and wider is a BIG improvement
“Is that the actual look of the 2015 Mustang?”
It is an artistic rendering of what it might look like. I think it will look very close to this when it does comes out. It is supposed to use the evo-style to the grill and lightsm which you now see on the fusion and taurus.
The '05's don't have the HP.
My 2013 Mustang has a V6 with more stock HP than the ‘65 HiPo V8. I’m loving it. 27 MPG at 80 MPH with the A/C on. I’ve owned 5 Mustangs prior to this.
