I think it looks pretty good, though I wish they had dropped all of the retro design cues. There's no reason a Mustang must share styling with the original 1960's car. The fox body didn't, and it was quite popular. Of course the Mustang II abomination that preceded it would make just about anything look good. I'm really tired of the retro crap.

I don't see the point of offering both the 2.0 Ecoboost and the 3.7 V6. They make pretty much the same power, and if you factor in the cost of premium gas for the Ecoboost, they'll probably cost about the same to operate. They might as well throw in the 3.5 Ecoboost as well since they're going for redundancy.

Yes!!!!! I can now say my Focus has a Mustang engine! Although I am sure the 2.3 Ecoboost is a little quicker than my 2.3.

The car looks great, but the rear is a little slopped for my taste. Overall it is a great design and look, thumbs up Ford!

The 2.3 L EcoBoost should run fine on 87 octane just like every other mainstream application of the engine family. Premium fuel will provide increased performance to the tune of around 9 HP based on the 2.0L EcoBoost in the ST.

Not really, the direct injected turbocharged engine shares very little with the older 2.3 L naturally aspirated engine. So unless you put the EcoBoost engine into your older car.

Definitely not feeling the PT cruiser air vents and the slanted back end is hideous.

Anyone think the front looks kind of like a gt-r?

lol agreed. I understand that looks and likes/dislikes are very subjective, but when I see statements like that, or one made earlier today in one of Detroit's newspapers stating that it's looking more and more like the Viper, but it will never be American's Exotic, like the Viper..well, some people need to visit their eye doctor.

As an owner of a '14, I like many of the aspects of the '15, and can't wait to see it in person.
