Ford celebrates its icon’s 50th birthday with an all-new, all-badass Mustang GT. Pass the cake!
This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Mustang’s muscle-bound existence, and Ford is honoring the occasion by rolling out the slickest pony car yet. From the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Detroit, the 2015 Mustang GT emerges a sleeker, nimbler, and more sophisticated version of its former self. Its lower, wider stance lends additional poise to the Mustang’s already strapping silhouette, while steeper sloping windows hark back to the Steve McQueen days. Under the hood the GT is all-American muscle, with an upgraded 5.0-liter V-8. For agility’s sake, Ford has equipped the new model with independent rear suspension. Pricewise the GT should remain well within reach of honest, red-blooded Americans. So roll up those shirt sleeves and fire up a Marlboro, cowboy: This pony ain’t going to drive itself.
Engine: 5.0-liter V-8
Torque: 390 lb.-ft.
Top Speed: 155 mph (limited)
