2015 ST @ Woodward cruise

I spoke with the Ford rep at the Woodward dream cruise.
Better brakes, suspension, dark gray wheels standard with black an option, and a redesigned console. More room I'm door panels with cup holders.
Console has cups vertical, small area for phone under radio with 12 volt outlet in front of shifter for phone.

Trade up for redesigned interior and some suspension tweaks?

I don't think so unless someone (literally) has money to burn.
In that case, why would they be driving a ST?

Chances are the 15 doesn't have bigger brakes than the post around mid March 2014 build cars that got the 1/2" larger rotors already and a 17" dissimilar spare tire.

Oh and the rear is even worse than the front IMO especially with that huge black pontiac plastic cladding and shrunken tail lamps without changing the body side and fuel door.

The overall shape of the grille hasn't changed from the 2013/2014 MY.

I don't understand why ford has to change the body style or add cheesy styling instead of doing funtional changes, like a bbk or a diff? I guess it cheaper to do a redo for a mid cycle model perhaps? Hope the foci stays for a few yrs that way.

It's very easy to understand.

The RS is the "hot" one, not the ST.

The ST is reasonably priced so Ford cannot afford to use any goodies like a LSD, big brakes, etc. but rather they must borrow key components (engine, trans, brakes, etc.) from existing "non-performance" vehicles.
