, Automotive Editor -

One of the most iconic and popular American cars of all time, the Ford Mustang has just been given its first complete makeover since 2005. The changes are most evident in the Mustang’s sleekest profile yet, but two new engines have been designed and are offered as well, all of which will serve it well in the ever-competitive sports car segment. With so many cosmetic and engineering changes the one thing that hasn’t changed for the Mustang is its diversity of configurations. Ford continues to offer one that fits nearly any possible budget maintaining the Mustang’s reputation as the sports car everyone can afford.

What's New for 2015

The Ford Mustang has had a top-to-bottom makeover for 2015.

Choosing Your Ford Mustang

Selecting a Mustang has never been an easy task, and with the new 2015 update Ford has not made that job any easier. The choice between coupe and convertible is still a difficult one. However, where Ford used to only offer a choice between two engines -- a V6 and V8 -- Mustang buyers now must choose between three engines, two of which are new.

One of the all-new engines is a 2.3-liter EcoBoost inline-four engine projected to deliver more than 305 horsepower with more than 300 pound-feet of torque. It is slotted below the V8 but above the six-cylinder model. Details at this point are still ambiguous as Ford is keeping their cards close to their chest and this vehicle won’t be available until later this year.

Returning is the 3.7-liter V6 which generates over 300 horsepower and delivers 19 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. It comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission and an optional six-speed automatic transmission. This engine is available on the:

V6

The base V6 is a pretty back-to-basics package. It comes with air conditioning, a stereo system, power assist steering, a tilt steering wheel with speed controls and 17-inch wheels. An optional V6 Performance Package is available and adds some sportier driving features including 19-inch aluminum wheels and performance front and rear calipers. A Tech Package is also available which adds SYNC, a six-way power-adjustable drivers seat, fog lamps and an auto-dimming mirror.

V6 Premium

Jumping to the V6 Premium is a significant increase in cost that you don't necessarily see in the features. It adds on six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, Shaker Audio System, SYNC, SiriusXM satellite radio, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and chrome accents. However, what the upgrade really offers is access to a significant number of additional options, some of which include six-way power-adjustable passenger's seat, heated front seats, dual-zone air conditioning, leather sport seats, remote start and more.

The V8 option is a newly designed 5-liter powerplant with 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. It has twin independent variable camshaft timing and delivers an estimated 15 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. It comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission with a six-speed automatic transmission optional. This engine comes with the:

GT

The GT mirrors the base V6 when it comes to standard equipment, but also provides access to a number of optional packages and add-ons. These include Reverse Sensors, Brembo brakes as well as a special Appearance Package.

GT Premium

As with the GT, the GT Premium duplicates the standard equipment of the V6 Premium. Again, the key differences are the larger V8 engine and the access to options that the GT Premium offers.

CarsDirect Tip

If you're not committed to the classic idea of V8 Mustang then the V6 Premium continues to be our recommendation. The V6 Premium gets better has mileage while still performing comparably to recent V8s. That being said, we're excited to see where the 2.3-liter Ecoboost fits in when it's finally released.
