According to Automotive News press reports, Ford will unveil the new 2015 Mustang design on Thursday, Dec 5. Time Magazine has some pics posted on their website that look like they were taken up close and personal. If they are accurate, the nose looks scooped down but the rest of the changes are visually pretty subtle.
Before now, Ford has redesigned the Mustang once every decade, so it was due for a change anyway. But the intense competition from the Chevrolet Camaro put the pressure on to come up with something strikingly new to keep its buyers in the corral and keep the Camaro far behind the pony car.
So far this year the Camaro has outsold the Mustang and the books will probably close that way at Jan 1. That will make three years running that the Camaro has left Mustang behind and taken over as the leader of the pack.
Reportedly the hallmarks of the original Mustang will remain while new stylistic touches are added. Just how bold Ford will go is anyone's guess so keep your eyes peeled on the news tomorrow.
Before you rush out to buy one though, just remember that old adage about the first year of any new model or major change like this is often the worst of the bunch, as the manufacturer struggles to get everything right in the new production process too.
And if you end up with a lemon Mustang? You know who to call, don't you? Yeah, we thought so.
