2015 Ford Mustang Returns to Top of Empire State Building


In 1957's "An Affair to Remember," Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr fall in love on an ocean liner to New York and agree to meet back up at the top of the Empire State Building to pick up where they left off. Well speaking of an affair to remember, America's romance with the Ford Mustang has never been forgotten, but the iconic muscle car's many admirers will still have the opportunity to fan their old flame next month atop the equally iconic skyscraper in Manhattan — right where they met a half-century earlier.

From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 16 and 17, Ford will commemorate 50 years of continuous Mustang production by bringing the all-new 2015 Mustang convertible to the Empire State Building's 86th-floor observatory. Unlike a certain giant ape who climbed to the top of the 1,454-foot-tall edifice, this pony will take the elevator. The publicity stunt requires the car to be cut into multiple sections, transported up on wheeled carts and reassembled in the display area. That's also the way it was done the first time around with a prototype Mustang convertible, only now the 2015 version is 7 inches longer and 4 inches wider.

2015 Ford Mustang: Up Close


When I first saw photos of the redesigned 2015 Ford Mustang, I knew it was one of those cars I'd need to see in person before forming an opinion. The front end, for one, was especially hard to read. A long look at it on the show floor revealed how much is new on the car — and there's a lot — but also how similar its overall shape is to the prior generation.

Ford is celebrating 50 years of Mustang with a new model. The 2015 version of the iconic pony car is a mix of retro and modern; it maintains the outgoing coupe's throw-back styling cues but also wears new curves, including a long, bulging hood and a more sculpted rear end.

Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says that although the car is completely redesigned for the new year, its hallmark throw-back styling cues are still a highlight of the Mustang's looks. Watch the video above.

2014 Detroit Auto Show: What to Expect


No word on dogs, but there's certainly going to be a pony show next week at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. That's when the world will get an up-close look at the 2015 Ford Mustang, unveiled last month with much fanfare.

2015 Ford Mustang: First Look

Show attendees making the acquaintance of the redesigned muscle-car icon will find a sleeker, more sculpted exterior design harking back to the 1965 fastback style and boasting new signature tri-bar taillights, as well as appropriately retro interior cues. Visitors to the Detroit show, of course, won't yet be able to experience the joys of the more than 420 horsepower that comes courtesy of the Mustang's beefiest powertrain option, a 5.0-liter V-8, nor the improvements to ride and handling promised by its new independent rear suspension. But a closer look should tide over enthusiasts until it hits dealerships later this year.

The new Mustang will join 71 vehicle debuts, 61 of which are said to be worldwide introductions, at the Detroit auto show, often touted as the "most important" exhibition of auto-show season, attracting more than 5,000 journalists from 62 countries and more than 795,000 visitors in 2013. Organizers promise "more than 500 vehicles on display, representing the most innovative designs in the world."

More 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible Photos


When Ford took the wraps off the all-new Mustang yesterday we thought the droptop version of the iconic car was sorely underrepresented in the coverage. This wasn't a fault of the media. Ford released no official images during the reveal itself. A strange omission when you realize that the Mustang is one of the best-selling convertibles in the country. This past year only a few have outpaced it like the Volkswagen Beetle, rental-car champ Chrysler 200 and its arch rival the Chevrolet Camaro.

Below we've gathered photos of the 2015 Mustang convertible shot by Ford at various events around the globe yesterday and the one static shot seen above in larger detail. There's also a shot of the car with the soft-top in place from Ford's consumer site.

2015 Ford Mustang Convertible Revealed Via Twitter


While the automotive world is in a frenzy over the first information and images of the 2015 Ford Mustang coupe, Ford's United Kingdom arm revealed a somewhat blurry image of the convertible version on its Twitter page (above).

There have been no other images of the convertible released yet, and the only information from Ford on the droptop was in the initial release:

"Mustang convertible drivers will appreciate the standard multilayer insulated cloth top that gives the car a more upscale appearance and a quieter cabin. The new top lowers twice as fast as before, and has a sleeker profile when folded for open-air motoring."

UPDATE 11:43 a.m. 

Ford's Scott Monty tweeted this second image — also blurry — earlier this morning. 


We'll have more information on the convertible Mustang as soon as it is released.

2015 Ford Mustang: First Look

2015 Ford Mustang Reveal 096 copy

Competes with: Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, Hyundai Genesis Coupe
Looks like: Somewhere between the current Mustang and the Ford Evos concept car
Drivetrain: 300-plus hp, 3.7-liter V-6; 305-plus hp, turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder; 420-plus hp, 5.0-liter V-8; six-speed manual or automatic transmission
Hits dealerships: 2014

It's an event that happens maybe once a decade, if we're lucky: Ford Motor Co. decides to update its iconic pony car for a new generation. The company's done just that with the unveiling of the 2015 Mustang, with retro sheet metal and styling cues that don't deviate much from the current version. Ford maintains that despite the similar looks, major revisions to everything under the curvy body mean that the new Mustang can be considered an all-new car.

Styling is very obviously evolutionary, and it must be said that pictures do not do the new Mustang justice — park the two cars next to each other and the new one looks wider, sleeker and more sculpted. The roofline is also different, looking even more like the original 1965 fastback than the previous car, which seemed to take more of its cues from the 1968 revision. The only possible issue: the front end looks too much like the rest of the Ford lineup in which every single car is now starting to resemble every other Ford. There's too much Taurus and Fusion in the nose, beefed up for Mustang duty but similar nonetheless. The car's best angle is the rear three-quarter view, which shows off a slanted rear end and new signature tri-bar taillights.

This isn't a refresh. This is the first all-new Ford Mustang since the company reinvented it — retro style — in 2005.

2015 Ford Mustang: First Look

The 2015 is lighter, wider and features an independent rear suspension, a first for mass-market Mustangs. But it is the new styling that will have everyone talking.
