On December 5, 2013, the redesigned version of one of the most iconic vehicles in history will be revealed: the new 2015 Ford Mustang. And the first photo of the car will appear on the social media image-sharing platform Instagram.
In creating the next-generation Mustang, Ford says it is thinking about America’s pony car in a different way, one reflective of the car’s popularity not just in the U.S., but also all around the world. As the latest member of the automaker’s globalized product arsenal, Ford claims it has accounted for worldwide desires, ideas, and requirements in the new Mustang, a car that its owners and devotees told Ford is about freedom and self-expression as much as it is about power and performance. As a result, Ford representatives say the new Mustang will “be more relevant to the real world, the one in which we live today,” promising a sports coupe that is technologically sophisticated, more refined, and better connected.
