I'm surprised none of the publications seem to have tested a 2014 and a 2015 at the same time to get a better comparison.
The 2013 and 2014 are identical except for some paint codes.

Yes, but it's not like many of these 2015 reviews have side-by-side compared the 2015 Mustang to a 2013/2014 Mustang.


Current: 2014 V6 Mustang Premium, Automatic Transmission, Oxford White, Safety & Security Package.

Previous: 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt LS, bone-stock except for automatic transmission.

Call me crazy, but a lot of those numbers for the 2015 seem to be better. That's why I still don't understand why there's so much doom and gloom based on the reviews, especially considering there's no track data (which is where this car is supposed to be most improved over the outgoing model).

Current: 2014 V6 Mustang Premium, Automatic Transmission, Oxford White, Safety & Security Package.

Previous: 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt LS, bone-stock except for automatic transmission.
