2015 Ford Mustang

In 1964, Cassius Clay fought Sonny Liston, declaring that he would, “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”. He stung and became the heavyweight champ. Fourteen hundred miles north, in Detroit, production began on another: the Ford Mustang. The Mustang was built to compete with the muscle cars of its day in more ways than one but was priced so the average family could afford it. Over the last 50 years this icon weathered many redesigns, most appreciated (and a few not so much), but we can already tell you that we’re digging the latest. With a lower, wider stance and aggressively minimal styling, the upcoming Mustang comes with one of three powertrains: a naturally aspirated 3.7L V-6, a 5.0L V-8, or, if you like the sound of weed eaters, a 2.3L 4-cylinder turbo, that push out 300hp, 420hp, and 305hp, respectively. It’s also finally welcomed many modern amenities including independent rear suspension, Intelligent Access with push-to-start, LED headlights, and a convertible model that goes topless twice as fast as this year’s. Best of all, just like in 1964, it’s to be priced for the average family, taking some of the sting out of buying a new classic.
