New Ford Mustang tested on Route 66 December 24, 2013

Posted by Ron Warnick in Vehicles.

The 2015 Ford Mustang coming, and it was spotted actually on a road for the first time on Route 66 in Southern California’s Mojave Desert, probably near Amboy.

According to Car Scoops:

The V8 model featured in this clip sports an updated 5.0-liter unit cranking out 420 horses and 390 lb-ft (528 Nm) of maximum torque directed to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic.

The two other available powertrains for Ford’s most recognized model series will be an entry-level 3.7-liter V6 (not for Europe) producing at least 300-horses, and a highly anticipated (for many reasons) 2.3-liter EcoBoost rated for more than 305 horsepower and over 300 lb-ft of torque (406 Nm).

The vehicle shown will be available in lots in late 2014 — in time for the model’s 50th anniversary.
