It's been two months since the 2015 Ford Mustang has been unveiled, but we're still a few months away from seeing the new pony car in dealerships across the world.
However, we're getting plenty of Mustang auction at just about any major automotive event, including the 2014 Chicago Auto Show that kicked off a couple of days ago.

If you haven't seen the new Mustang up close and personal, make sure you check Ford's booth in Chicago for a GT version of vehicle in the newly-introduced Triple Yellow color, previously showcased at the Detroit Auto Show last month.

As a brief reminder, the 2015 Mustang will become available in the fourth quarter of the year with a choice of three engines, a 3.7-liter V6, a brand new 2.3-liter EcoBoost and an updated 5.0-liter Coyote V8.

The V6 will be available only in the US, while the 2.3-liter EcoBoost is destined exclusively for the European market. The V8 on the 'Stang GT will be available on both sides of the pond. The unit delivers 412 horsepower released at 6,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 386 lb-ft at 4,250 rpm.

The EcoBoost mill promises 317 horsepower and a better fuel efficiency figure, although we doubt anyone will care about that once they get to drive their new Mustang, even if European customers are part of the equation.

Ford had several reasons to make this Mustang the best Mustang to date, one of them being the offensive launched by Chevrolet using the sixth-gen Camaro, which promises to make-up for the ground lost by GM in the battle with Ford concerning pony cars sales.

Another motivation for Ford on building a more refined Mustang is the fact that this model is the first 'Stang ever to reach dealerships across the pond, in Europe, where the demanding clientele doesn't fit the profile of the US buyer.
