It seems that they are just throwing away the American muscle factor of the Mustang. Nothing is muscular about it now. .. its like they are trying to make it into a euro

Like the triangles on the bottom front fender. Just like the jetta and audi. Not cool.

I must be one of the only people that likes a turn-key ignition. Had no idea so many people were looking forward to a button.

Yeah my sister has that in her car and I think it's a really dumb invention.

You mean like how the SN95 or even the original had European influence?

What about the SN95 was more "muscular" compared to what you think the 2015 will be like, if I may ask?

It just seems like every generation of people thinks that the world is ending with them. Same goes with Mustangs.

Push to start is a pretty cool feature, but imo paddle shifters don't belong on a mustang

Honestly I couldn't care less for a push-start button...

Man, that thing is a work or art. I would take one of those in a second... if I didn't have to shell out $250k+ for it. The side profile is just classic. The front- and rear-views are a bit odd, but they could grow on me. The power is in nearly 2014 Shelby range. What's not to love, other than the price tag?

Yeah, I know many of you will say, "plenty," but to each his own.

push button starting is so backwards. Its complexity and parts to a proven system.

I'll take the paddle shifting over the push button start any day.

I'm just glad I got my 2014 when the opportunity arose. Really, nothing wrong with the 2015, Ford has to do something to boost sales or we won't have a Mustang around much longer. The Mustang sales are the lowest in the Ford line up at around 78,000 per year, a number that just isn't profitable for Ford. If Ford, by producing a Mustang "world car," can get sales around 125,000+ average per year then we just may have our steed for another 10 years. When sales drop below 100,000 per year, that particular model will soon be phased out. Corvette is unique in that Chevrolet has modified its business model to allow sales numbers between 45,000-65,000 per year to remain viable/profitable.

For me personally, I'd never purchase a Mustang that is 15 inches shorter and 7 inches reduced in width. If those numbers hold true, then better hope that you like the size of the 1974-1978 Mustang II, because that's what it will be. The SN95 was to small for me to feel comfortable in and that's why I sold it and purchased the 1999 new edge model which had just enough increase in interior room to make it liveable. But man, Mustang II-SN95 size again, no thanks!! Nevertheless, I hope enough people can live with the size/weight reduction so sales will soar; I want the Mustang to live on......I'll just have to take care of my 14 GT/CS, which I'm now very thankful to have purchased.
