The new, sleek design evolved to attract a wider array of customers and expand global market availability, according to a Ford news release.
“From day one, we knew if we were going to build a new Mustang, we had to do it right,” said Dave Pericak, Ford Mustang chief engineer, in a statement. “We built a new Mustang from the ground up that is quicker, better-looking, more refined and more efficient, without losing any of the raw appeal that people have associated with Mustang for half a century.”
Ford will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the original Ford Mustang on April, 17, 2014. To celebrate this milestone, each 2015 model will bear a badge on the instrument panel that includes the galloping pony logo and the words “Mustang – Since 1964," Ford reported.
There are several new design features in the 2015 Ford Mustang, including:
- A lower, wider stance with a reduction in roof height, and wider rear fenders and track
- The return of Mustang fastback with a sleeker profile enabled by more steeply sloped windshield and rear glass
- Three-dimensional, tri-bar taillamps with sequential turn signals
- Contemporary execution of the signature shark-bite front fascia and trapezoidal grille
