2015 Ford Mustang to Blend Updates and Tradition
However, Ford did say the next-generation Mustang will be “less retro and more futuristic”, thus splitting musclecar enthusiasts into two groups. One that thinks a radical change will bury the pony, and one that claims a redesign is more than welcomed, as the classic lines are getting maybe a little too old.
As expected, the Michigan-based company is concerned about what future customers might make of the Evos Concept-based Mustang, and advocated that the changes won’t be that drastic and the world’s most popular musclecar will retain some of its traditional lines.
“The thing about refresh rates is they are a key factor in your market share. We’ve got a very strong idea of what a Mustang is. That’s what Mustang will always be. It;s an American icon, but it’s not solely an American passion. There’s always regulatory requirements, but relative to the car, a Mustang is a Mustang,” said Raj Nair, Ford’s vice president of global product development.
