The sixth generation 2015 Ford Mustang with K&N air filter

The sixth generation 2015 Ford Mustang is wider, lower, faster, and more efficient than the Mustang it replaces plus it will be available globally in left or right hand drive

The 2015 Ford Mustang broke from decades of tradition in more ways than one. All sixth generation Ford Mustang models feature a fully independent rear suspension. Traditionally, the Ford Mustang has always had a solid live axle rear suspension, save for the special edition 1999-2004 Mustang Cobras. This new independent rear suspension brings Mustang handling, and road manners, up to par with far more expensive cars. Also, for the first time in nearly thirty years, Ford is offering a turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine in the Mustang.

Contrary to most auto makers’ engine line ups, due to an increase in horsepower, torque, and fuel economy, the Ford 2.3L EcoBoost four cylinder engine is an upgrade over the standard 300 horsepower V6. Luckily the traditional V8 powered Ford Mustang still remains and it boasts an incredible 435 peak horsepower for 2015. Yet, the biggest break from Ford Mustang tradition is the fact that the sixth generation car has been designed with a global platform intended for world-wide export as left or right hand drive.
