2015 Mustang an AutoGuide.com COTY Finalist - Video

There probably isnít anything more American than independence and appropriately, thatís exactly what the Ford Mustangís rear end is gaining in 2015.

By now you almost certainly know that the fifth-generation Ford Mustang is ditching its solid rear axle in favor of an independent rear suspension across the entire model line. But that isnít the only change for Americaís pony car, no sir.
It is also being sold with a turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that puts out 310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque via a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Itís the newest and most revolutionary Mustang on the market today, so we invited it to be a finalist for our 2015 Car of the Year Award.
While it isnít the quickest or most powerful model, the EcoBoost model feels far from slow. The turbocharger creates enough torque to give it purposeful acceleration without laying waste to gasoline with the sort of reckless abandon tied to owning the five-point-ohÖ
Ford also improved the manual transmission it uses in the Mustang for this generation for smoother shifts. The stick feels light between gear changes and more refined than the now-gone fourth-generation car.
Perhaps most importantly, the Mustang is finally being sold worldwide as a ďglobalĒ car. Is that enough to make it the 2015 AutoGuide.com car of the year? Stay tuned for our official announcement on Monday, December 15.
