I'm a Ford man through and through and I recognize the Mustang's influence on American culture as the
road car for the rebellious roads. It's America on four wheels and now we have a certainly controversial 2015 redesign.
The new Mustang is supposed to have a turbocharged four-banger that's supposed to make more than the current V6's 306 horsepower. A turbo four in a Mustang sounds like a horrible idea, but it isn't. Instead it's a realization that the Mustang must be more than a muscle car, it has to be a performance machine that should be taken seriously by the world, not just muscle car enthusiasts.
It's design is a matter of opinion, some love it for being sleek and modern, definitely following Ford's push to create sexy cars, while others bemoan it's similarities with the new Fusion and Aston Martins.
This is a car that will get a lot of attention in the coming months, it's success will be perhaps the largest trophy in the Ford lineup, finally offering a Mustang that can be thrown into curves in comfort and confidence. But it's failure will be the greatest setback American cars since the Mustang II.
So for your viewing pleasure, I present the new 2015 Ford Mustang
. Fifty years strong.
