They are going to molest the 2015 mustang :(

I have recently read some forums discussing the 2015 mustang and some maybe renderings and the 2015 may look like the camaro and they are going to put a 4 cyl motor in it and that they may do away with the V8. Thoughts?

yeah old rumor is old. the designs are fake, there will be v8s and it is possible that they may have 4 cyclinder or maybe ecoboost v6 but im not expecting much.

I think if they just do the base model a 4 cyl but still offer the v6 and v8 that they will get a lot more buyers. I just hope that w/e they come up with for a body design that they don't ruin it.

I'll be pissed if there isnt a v8 mustang. I'll be even more pissed if they offer a 4 cylinder one.

There is no way they could drop the V8 this soon after creating the 5.0. And why would you be pissed if they came out with a 4cyl. option? It's not like it would effect you and it wouldn't be the first time that a 4cyl has been dropped into the engine bay by Ford. I personally think from a business stand point that a 4cyl Mustang would be a good option if they plan on making the Mustang smaller in the next body style especially if they can get 35mpg+. Using a lower powered 4cyl would let them use the lighter 7.5in rear end, a smaller lighter transmission, smaller lighter brakes, and quite a few other lighter parts that would lessen the weight of the base model to help it get even more MPG.

One thing i'm confident in saying is that no matter what changes come to the Mustang, dropping the v8 motor option will not be one of them. Honestly, the Mustang needs too be completely redesigned. Ford can't continue selling them if the design stays the same forever. I'm anxious to see how the next generation will look and don't see anything wrong with giving people a turbo 4 or 6 cylinder motor option.

Just finished doing a little researching and I came up with this. With the new redesign that is rumored to make the next gen Mustang smaller this would also make it lighter. The current V6 Mustang weighs in at a little over 3400lbs, the current 4cyl fusion weights in at a little over 3200lbs. If they take the 2.5L 4cyl from the Fusion and direct inject it and toss it in the Mustang this alone would drop lets say 50-75lbs bringing the weight to a little under 3400lbs. Now drop in the smaller 7.5in rear end will drop another 50-75lbs bringing the weight to right around 3300lbs. Now you toss on a smaller set of brakes and drop another 15-20lbs, stick on a set of 16x6 wheels with a low rolling resistance tire. Now just doing these weight saving measures alone with the current(2011) Mustang will bring it to within 60lbs of the 2012 Fusion which gets 33mpg highway. Now since the next gen Mustang is rumored to be smaller you can drop another couple hundred pounds off of that and bring it to around 3100lbs. Now mate a 6spd manual with a 6spd auto, as an option, with both being geared for fuel efficiency, and the rear gear ratio at 3.08(maybe use a 2.73 as an SFE option). Now since the engine would now be positioned front to bad instead of transversely the engines intake and exhaust will be able to flow more efficiently producing more power without a jump in fuel consumption(this was proven with the 3.7L). This could bring the power of the engine to just shy of 200hp(estimate) and maybe breaching the 200hp mark with the use of direct injection(would also yield better gas mileage). Doing this and you would have a car that would be quicker than the 05-10 base model(4.0L) and yield significantly better fuel mileage(could reach as high as 35-36mpg I estimate). I believe this would be a great option for those who want the styling of a Mustang but don't want/need high horsepower and the high insurance rates that come with more powerful Mustangs.

From a theoretical standpoint this looks to be a very solid idea but I don't know exactly how well it would work out in the real world as there are many factors that can't be accounted for.

From what i heard about it, its supposed to be going global with IRS and should be much lighter with more power with a v8 leading the top of the line and a eco-boost 4 or 6 banger as a base engine.

when they go global, they will focus on v6 performances rather than the v8 because europe just plainly rather have v6 than the v8. they like the twisties rather than just raw power haha

im still skeptical with them doing IRS. i dont see it happening, unless its for a specialty mustang

They won't use the lighter 7.5" rear end because it's most likely going to be IRS.

Get ready to be even more pissed...I almost guarantee they will use the Ecoboost 4 cyl at some point in time in the next generation Mustang. I don't think it will be too bad though

-2004 Mustang GT: Sold..Worst mistake of my life.

-2009 Mazda Mazda6 i Touring: The new whip

Wish I could've kept the Mustang and the Mazda at the same time...
