    Ford EVOS Concept - Will this be the new 2015 Mustang?

    Explore Kenny Brown Performance today!!


    If this doesn’t stoke the fire of media bullrings huddling about the next-generation 2015 Mustang, nothing else will. Ford has pulled cover on a new concept car that will debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show in a couple weeks.

    Ford says the Evos Concept car represents the new global design language, and explores key future power train and vehicle technologies. Calling it a “fastback”, Ford is showing the car in Germany this fall to showcase the next wave of Ford’s design themes. And we think it says a lot about what the next Mustang due in 2014 will look like.



    “The Ford Evos Concept unites three key elements which are at the core of our One Ford global product strategy: outstanding design, smart technologies and fuel economy leadership,” said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president of Global Product Development.
    Like the Ford Mustang Guigiaro Concept in 2006, what may come from this exercise down the road may not at all be the same. But like the Guigiaro Concept, it signals Ford’s global product development team’s efforts to blend American and European design into future products we will all share.
    _______________________________________________

    Our exciting new design DNA has been developed and refined by an intensive effort by all of our talented global design team,” said Mays. “As a team, we wanted to create a more technical design vocabulary to help communicate the smart technology that is now core to the Ford brand. In addition, we worked particularly hard on meeting the high-expectations of a new generation of buyers – a group of consumers who have grown up surrounded by beautiful, premium design work on even the most affordable products.”



    The concept’s spectacular hinged gullwing-style doors, both front and rear, provide outstanding access to the spacious four-seat cabin. The concept car measures 177 inches long, 77 inches wide and 53 inches high, with a wheelbase of 108 inches. The dimensions put it about 10 inches shorter than the current Mustang, a couple inches lower, and a few inches wider – almost exactly where we all know the size is headed.

    What makes this concept so easy to associate with the Mustang is its fastback shape and muscle car stance. Though this car is actually a four-door gull-wing, it looks strikingly like a sport coupe. The lines even mirror some vintage Ferrari Daytona in addition to American muscle.

    I can see the front end grafted onto something more in keeping the current design. The front end is muscular and athletic -- much like some of the current Jaguar and Aston Martin designs. The car as a whole, however, is far too Japanese econo-rocket. Of course the gullwing doors will never make it in a full-production domestic car.

    But I am digging the front-end, if they change to "mouth" to be more of the classic Mustang grille shape, (like the white artist's rendering) they could have a winner! They gotta keep the power bulge though.

    Never run out of real estate, traction and ideas at the same time.

    Can they make it smaller than the current generation?

    I drove an '11 5.0 the other day...felt like I was driving a Town Car...the hood is LONG and it felt big.

    Jim, I mostly agree, though I'm not a big fan of the power bulge. But that rear has GOT to go! Butt ugly IMHO! Not at all a fan of single centered exhaust either and THAT sure isn't a Mustang tradition!

    IDK the new Fusion looks pretty close in my eyes. Although most drawings are going in the Mustangs direction.

    2015 Ford Mustang designated as S550 platform - Update 02/06/13



    The next generation 2015 Mustang will be called the S550 platform by Ford
    , MustangsDaily.com has learned from an anonymous inside source. The last several updates to the current generation Mustang – 2010, 2011 and 2013 – while significant in terms of both powertrain and design changes, have all been within the current platform, the S197. However, the changes to the 2015 Mustang will be significant enough that a new designation is required. It will be only the fifth time Ford has introduced a new Mustang platform, marking a significant milestone in the model’s history that spans nearly five full decades.


    So what can we expect from the next generation Mustang? For starters, Ford will be bringing America’s favorite pony car to the rest of the world, officially announcing last year that the 2015 Mustang will be sold in Europe and likely elsewhere as part of the company’s goal to have global products. As a result, the car will be both lighter and smaller than the current platform.

    As far as styling goes, Ford’s Chief Creative Officer J Mays has said that the design will be less retro and “bring the brand forward.” Rumors persist that styling cues will be inspired by the futuristic Ford Evos Concept that debuted at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, although to what extent is unknown.

    The Mustang’s solid rear axle has been a point of contention for several years now, and it looks like Ford will finally be giving the car an independent suspension for 2015. Prototype models have already been caught testing using the new suspension setup.

    Finally, as far as powertrains go, the big news will be the addition of an EcoBoost engine to the Mustang lineup. Ford executives have all but confirmed that a turbocharged four-cylinder engine will be offered for 2015, although it could come at the expense of the V6. The 5.0L V8 will remain an option, although possibly not for Europe. The Shelby GT500 will also remain part of the lineup, although its powertrain is unknown. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if a production derivative of the Cobra Jet Concept’s twin-turbo 5.0L V8 finds its way into the car.

    Well THAT certainly looks a LOT more like a MUSTANG! Certainly an improvement over the ricer in the first post!
