After 50 years of Ford developing and redeveloping the Mustang, Ford announces the 2015 Mustang GT. Tradition and technology come together in this latest edition and body style. Boasting the power and performance that is expected after five decades of research, wear and tear makes this a truly special edition.

The GT engine is a 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine. Known for its low roar and incredibly noticeable acceleration, this newest model is more powerful, with 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. The more technologically engineered, with larger intake and exhaust valves, new cylinder heads with revised high-flow ports and new intake and exhaust camshafts with increased lift, means this vehicle is all about power. A larger radiator, heavy-duty front springs, upsized rear sway bar and an interior gauge pack that includes oil pressure and vacuum are just the beginning. The Brembo® 6-piston front brake calipers come with larger rotors for enhanced reliability. The unique 19-inch by 9-inch front wheels are set off by the rear ones of 19-inch by 9.5-inch for stability and enhanced control. It seems everything on the GT is super-sized to manage the power.

The all-new design is more sleek and concise while identifying all of the original lines. The “hippy” rear denotes a strong stance and firm overall street appeal, yet is slimmer and more refined. The lowered decklid, bold grille and light casings are reminiscent of the original design. The rear looks smooth and less complex than reiterations in years past, using tri-bar LED tail lamps with the sequential blink that has become very “Mustang.” The cockpit has been redesigned for ultimate performance alongside the latest technologies. Repositioning the cup holders away from the shifting console, a smaller steering wheel and a lower set seat are all meant to improve the experience of driving a Mustang.

Impressive technology updates this machine as well. Intelligent access to the vehicle, a push-button start and SYNC® with MyFord Touch® make useful the newest of expectations among drivers. The all-new edition of the Mustang is (again) turning heads and taking this icon into the next half century with accolades and acclaim unlike what the brand has seen for years.
