Most rumors claim the 2015 Ford Mustang will be unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, and with only six months left until the big event the Blue Oval-badged automaker is still mum on details. But the lack of official details has spawned a productive rumor mill, with more and more unofficial details surfacing onto the web lately.
Wheels Magazine is the latest paper to join the speculative efforts on what the next-gen Mustang will bring, and their latest article reveals new details about the musclecar. For starters, the Australians claim that the four-cylinder EcoBoost Mustang pony will have just 248 HP
under the bonnet, about 60 HP less when compared to the 3.7-liter V6 version, although past reports were hinting at a 350 HP 2.3-liter EcoBoost. In addition, the 5.0-liter Coyote will carry on with 429 HP, while the supercharged 5.8-liter V8 now fitted in the Shelby GT500 could deliver as much as 680 HP.
Interestingly enough, Wheels Magazine also claims the 2015 Mustang will also receive a ten-speed automatic transmission at a later date. The gearbox will be jointly-developed by Ford and General Motors, as part of the program the two automakers announced three months ago
Finally, Wheels Magazine also published two renderings of the sixth-generation Mustang. Nothing new here really, but nothing wrong with having yet another interpretation of this highly-anticipated musclecar.
