The 2015 Mustang gets power from one of three engines, including a new 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-4 Ecoboost engine that makes an impressive 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque.Base models use a 3.7-liter V6 that makes 300 hp and 270 lb.-ft.of torque.The Mustang GT gets a new 5.0-liter V8, with a new valvetrain and cylinder heads, as well as a new intake manifold for better low-speed aspiration.The 5.0 is no slouch, putting out 420 hp and 390 lb.-ft.
Unlike many car companies, Ford still has love for the manual transmission, as do we.The standard gearbox on all models is a 6-speed manual with hill start assist, with just the right amount of feel through the gates, not too firm and not too sloppy.A 6-speed automatic is optional, which we found to be quite good.Even in normal mode, the transmission is geared on the sporty side, holding shifts longer and downshifting when our revs dropped.All automatics come with paddle shifters, for those who want to click through their own gears.
