Sometimes I'll drive down the highway and see a motorhome with a randomly applied, parts-bin headlight assembly and try to figure out where they got it.

That is what this Mustang looks like.

Pretty sure the Ford has been doing the Mustang-esque design longer than Chevy and Dodge.

Also, 2014 compared to 2015... Looks more current gen Mustang than Camaro.




set back headlights, and protruding grill........

My comment was going to be who put the horse emblem on the front of the new two door fusion, but I see you beat me to it.
The mustang never really did it for me. This one doesn't change that.

After the re-creation of the sixties look, i'm happy that they didn't follow it up with a reincarnation of the Mustang II from the 70's

I like the new look. The current ten Mustang looked heavy to me. I can't put my finger on it, but there's something there. Now, that in itself wouldn't prevent from buying a Mustang, it just looked off.

I definitely like the overall styling of the 2014 a lot better. My only complain with the current car is the hood louvers on the GT. The 2012 I guess it was without the louvers was nicer.

Not too sure on this new one. In person it might be different....the '15 does have IRS and at the same time drops a rumored 200 or more pounds so the overall look standing next to it might be trimmer.

Stylists at Ford have been on hallucinogenics for a while now. The Ford pickups with the dozens of square feet of cheapass looking chrome on the front etc.

The 2010-11-12 Mustangs looked good. The '13-'14 went backwards, with the thick trim around the grill looks like a sucker fish mouth or something.

So now the Stangsion. I dunno. I have a '95 Cobra that's nearly undriveable compared to these new ones, so who am I to judge I guess.

As a current owner of a 2012, I am excited about some of the changes. Glad it will be lighter and shorter. A stiffer chassis and independent rear suspension are needed updates. I had read that this will be ~15" shorter than the current car. I have not read anything to confirm that yet.

The steeper rear roof line and more angled trunk lid appear that there will be less space inside. If there is less rear headroom than my current car. There may as well not be backseats.

The styling looks okay to me. They didn't take any major risks and that doesn't suprise me. The front looks like a new Ford and that was the intent. Brand recognition is important in a sea of jellybean shaped cars.

I am looking forward to test driving these with all of the engines offered. If I do upgrade, it would probably be a couple years into production.

I haven't really liked most of the Ford styling for awhile. My daughter has a '96 F-250 that I like the look of, but there hasn't been much since that I've really liked. I want to like Fords. My dad was a Ford guy. But I just can't warm up to the looks of them.

Opposite for me... I like the consistency of the frontal areas between models. ?.
