The Future versions of the new 2015 Ford Mustang, which were unveiled last week by the American multinational automaker, might possibly get diesel, hybrid, and even electric powertrains.
Bob Fascetti, Ford global powertrain chief, during the launch said in a statement made to one of the leading newspaper that the Blue Oval is pondering all of these options, in an effort to make the Mustang greener.
According to the latest reports, The 2015 Ford Mustang will also be available with a new 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is capable of providing improved fuel economy or rather less-inefficient performance.
The EcoBoost is actually the Mustang’s mid-level engine which was dropped after the 1993 model year, but splitting the difference between a 3.7-liter V-6 that will produce at least 300 hp and 270 lb-ft, and a 5.0-liter V-8 with at least 420 hp and 390 lb-ft is all that the mustang can get from modern technology and a turbocharger used in the EcoBoost engine.
On the 50th-anniversary of Mustang, Ford Motor Co. executives unveiled the sixth-generation all together in New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Barcelona, Spain, Sydney, Australia, Dearborn and Mich.
The new Mustang when compared to the predecessor is lower, wider and sleeker, but features the same broad shoulders and big, bold front end.
Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer said in a statement that “We find globally that everyone wants that piece of Americana,” adding on to the same he also stated that “We designed a Mustang and decided to take it global. We did not design a global Mustang.”
So, according to the company’s officials the 2015 Mustang will go on sale first in the United States and Canada in the fourth quarter of 2014, which will be further followed by the sales China and then Europe sometime in 2015.
