Default 2015 Mustang vs 2013

photo201_large.jpg

So.. here we have a eh-hem-- new mustang.
what do ya think?

I both like it and im sorely disappointed, not to mention partly angry.
What ya see here is a new car indeed, but much of it really doesnt look like it is.
Oh yeah its all new sheet metal but overall it looks little more than a face lift.
And that kills me!.. IMO 2015 50th anniversary of fords arguably longest running marque shouldve been a milestone, not another tweak. At any point in time that mustang needed a leap instead of a skip was now. The playing field is all together different. Those little japanese sudo sports cars have been closing the gap. Even fords own fiesta st and Focus ST are way more fun to drive than the mustang, overall. So mustang needed to evolve because its segment has become very niche. Mustang have been a middle ground car from the start, but its sales has slumped because other cars more focused and refined for there segment exist. so the mustang needed to become a truer refined sportscar. The Corvette team understood this as well. Muscle car characteristics no longer sell, big power but poor performance numbers dont sell anymore. so they uped the ante and everyones raving about it. And the vettes new look is attracting alota people. Mustang needed to be a bit more future. and less 2005. more menacing. lower wider sleeker. I mean they did listen.. but its all shouldve been pushed further. IMO. bottom line 2015 shouldve been you see it and go wow. i dont think anyone's going wow. i think everyones looking and seeing what really amounts to more of the same.
