2015 mustang ronnie s live pics from the dearborn reveal

First off, I want to apologize to our readers for not getting these photos posted in a more timely manner. T’is the season and the Mustang reveal was not the only press event in Detroit today. That being said, the segment of the four continent six city reveal that took place in Dearborn was part new product reveal, part car show and part pep rally and a good time was had by all. In addition to the all new 2015 Mustang up on stage, the lobby of Ford’s conference center was filled with a number of significant customer owned historical Mustangs. Mark Fields, Ford’s COO, did the reveal in Dearborn, aided by soon-to-retire VP of styling J. Mays, and in general the crowd of Ford employees (the allotted tickets were grabbed up in 4 minutes I was told), executives, dealers, members of the media and a number of Mustang club members who drove in for the event had a positive reaction to the new ‘Stang.

I was hoping to get some photos of the new Mustang’s new independent rear suspension, but the car up on stage was a pushmobile. The few actual running prototypes were allotted to other cities in the multi-location event and the Mustang’s hometown got the “leftovers” as one member of the Mustang team told me.

Full gallery after the jump.

    I like the back end a lot. I wish it were a hatchback. It would make the car a lot more useful.

    I'm disappointed. It's not a horrible design, but it's not that good either. The nose of the car could have been done a lot better. The back end manages to look modern and aggressive while retaining modernized Mustang styling cues. We can only pray that Ford doesn't do what they always do give this generation of Mustang a 4x4 look with huge gaps between the tops of the tires and the fender lip. The reveal car seems to sit perfectly--not too high and not too low. And I like how the wheels/tires seem to be nearly flush with the body, which is another thing that Ford has always screwed up with the Mustang.

      Would you buy a Camry instead if it was the most beautiful car in the world? Looks are subjective and what matters is how a car makes you feel from the time you get in and start it, to when you stop and get out. The satisfaction you get, the uncontrollable smile to the giggles you get from tossing it into an off-camber, decreasing radius and exiting on a 4-wheel drift. I'm not saying Ford didn't come short of an all-out sexy, beautiful car, but they point is to keep the cues subtle enough to appeal to a broad audience. In that sense, they hit a home run. The Camaro has a stunning, striking design, but you eventually get sick of looking at its bold, exaggerated lines.

  • Tassos Before you rush to buy this heap of rusty metal, maybe you should wait a day or two.I hear Tim will have an Model T next time.
  • Redapple2 I d just buy one already sorted. Too many high level skills (wiring, paint, body panel fitment et. al.) that i dont have. And I dont fancy working 100 s of hours for $3 /hour.
  • 28-Cars-Later I'm actually surprised at this and not sure what to make of it. In recent memory Senator Biden has completely ignored an ecological disaster in Ohio, and then ignored a tragic fire in Hawaii until his handlers were goaded in sending him and his visit turned into it's own disaster, but we skipped nap time for this sh!t show? Seriously? We really are through the looking glass now, "votes" no longer matter (Hillary almost won being the worst presidential candidate since 1984 before he claimed the crown) and outside of Corvette nostalgia Joe doesn't care let alone know what day it happens to be. Could they really be afraid of Trump, who AFAIK has planned no appearance or run his mouth on this issue? Just doesn't make sense, granted this is Clown World so maybe its my fault for trying to find sense in a senseless act.
  • Tassos If you only changed your series to the CORRECT "Possibly Collectible, NOT Daily Driver, NOT Used car of the day", it would sound much more accurate AND TRUTHFUL.Now who would collect THIS heap of trash for whatever misguided reason, nostalgia for a much worse automotive era or whatever, is another question.
  • ToolGuy Price dropped $500 overnight. (Wait 10 more days and you might get it for free?)
