It's hard to think of a more anticipated 2015 redesign than the Ford Mustang. Already an icon for its ability to consistently pair respectable performance and affordable pricing for going on 50 years, Ford also chose 2015 to implement a host of technological, drivetrain, and platform upgrades to the Mustang, finally bringing it fully into the 21st century and silencing critics who had long derided the more antiquated aspects of its package.
There's certainly very little about the 2015 Ford Mustang that feels like it belongs to days gone by, with the sole exception of the undisputed attitude on display by the range-topping Mustang GT's standard V-8 engine. Joined by a new turbocharged drivetrain plus a surprising list of advanced features, it's hard to think of a time when Ford has offered such a versatile entry-level performance car option. I spent a week behind the wheel of the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and came away impressed by how little has been lost of the original car's character in massaging its bad-ass brawn to better meet modern-day standards.
