2015 Ford Mustang: North American Technical Specifications

by DrivingEnthusiast

Technical specs for North America have just been released by Ford. Note that HP and torque are preliminary – those will be announced closer to production next year. Note also that Ford has not released weights.

Note that Europe, Australia, China only get the 2.3 and 5.0 models, not the V-6. Their specs are otherwise the same.
