Here is the official commercial

Oh NO!
Renders of this possible design were floating around the web months ago, and the common consensus seemed to be that it was the least impressive option of all the renders doing the rounds. Everyone agreed that it looked more like the current Accord Coupe and less like a Mustang. Even Rutledge Wood of TG USA said pretty much the same thing.

What you're seeing in these pictures is the beefed up 5.0 GT version - the 3.0 and 4-pot versions look terribly bland and nothing like a Pony car should.

I'm terribly disappointed.

Ford has officially unveiled the latest incarnation of its iconic muscle car, the Mustang. The car will be launched on 17 April, 2014, exactly fifty years after the first Mustang appeared.

Thumbs down Re: 2015 Ford Mustang - Leaked! Edit : Now officially revealed.

The front looks so much Aston Martin like. The side profile resembles the Maserati!!
I think the designers have gone wrong with this one. The car completely loses out on the raw retro muscle styling.

Wasn't there a live reveal on "Good Morning America" on ABC today? Did anyone watch? I had to leave for work at 815ish and they hadn't revealed till then I think.

Really curious to see how they are going to price the V6 and the V8 with the ecoboost coming in.

It looks amazing! And it sounds incredible. Wish it was a lot more compact like the original.

Awesome . Looks super cool but I feel the original Mustang touch is missing here.

A timeless classic. This is according to me the best Mustang out there!

IMO the new Mustang is a very good looking 'sportscar' but not a very good looking or a true 'Mustang'.

Though the heart still beats for the Original 1st gen Mustang, but honestly it is a fair & honest upgrade over the years IMO.

The interior styling improvements are appreciated. However, On the outside I don't know how you can call this car a muscle car anymore.

It looks just like any other Euro sports car > . >. Not to my liking at all, The previous generation was better looking and actually looked aggressive enough to be called an American Muscle car.

A look at the Mustangs 2.3L ECOBOOST;

2015 Ford Mustang - Leaked! Edit : Now officially revealed.-2015fordmustangv8engine22.jpg

2.3-liter EcoBoost 4 cyl brings turbocharging to the Mustang for the 1st time since the limited series SVO model of the '80s.

This new unit has been developed specifically for the Mustang, with the intake manifold and turbocharger being optimized to provide better breathing and higher output.

Specs;

Power : 305 HP
Torque : 406 Nm

Sad to see the dilution of the essence of this pony car. If they can do such trickery with the 2.3 puny motor then why not do half of that trickery on the existing 5.0 and keep everyone happy. I mean 4 cylinder techno jazz is good but if you buy a pony car you buy it for its deep burbly exhaust note and the overall feel of a chilled out V8 under the vast hood on top of that the car looks like an overgrown Taurus with a Mustang-ish rear.
