The new “pony” car by Ford began production at their Flat Rock, MI assembly line. Ford say the first model came off the production line on August 28.
Are you hungry to learn more about the next model in line for the Mustang throne? Here is what we know on the new 2015 Ford Mustang.
For the first time, Ford are producing right-hand drive versions of the new generation Mustang pony car! The US automaker says that this is a first in the car’s 50-year history.
The right-hand drive versions will cater for the UK, South African and Australian markets. They will also cater for 22 other markets.
United States first, everywhere else later
Given that the United States is Ford’s home, the new Mustang will sell over here first this fall.
It is a car that will get sold in 120 countries in total, but us Americans can take advantage of the fact that we can get it first!
Plenty of engine choices
An upgraded 435 brake horsepower V8 motor comes as standard in the new Ford Mustang. But there are some other engines to suit different lifestyle choices, according to Bob from Jay New Nelson.
If you don’t like the idea of driving your new ‘stang with a 5.0-liter V8 under the hood, you can also choose from the following engines:
2.3-liter EcoBoost with direct injection. It boasts 310 brake horsepower;
3.7-liter “Cyclone” V6 engine, with 300 brake horsepower.
Improved Flat Rock assembly line
In 2013, the Flat Rock assembly line built its 1 millionth Ford Mustang! That could not have been made possible were it not for the investment Ford has made into the production center.
Over $555 million dollars got invested. The money helped transform and improve the Flat Rock facility into a state of the art car manufacturing center.
And the investment has been good for the local economy too. More than 3,000 employees work for Ford at the Flat Rock assembly line.
The eagle-eyed among you will also know that the Fusion is also built at Flat Rock too. But then the Mustang is a more-interesting car to talk about, don’t you think?

As I mentioned earlier, the new Ford Mustang will go on sale this fall in the United States. It is expected to hit Ford dealer showrooms across the world by 2015. Check out the Ford website for more details.

It’s fair to say that not all drivers are equal. Some of us make silly mistakes on the road and while it’s easy to disregard these issues as basic human error, they are quite dangerous. The majority of incidents on the road could have been prevented by one or more drivers. Just look at the case of the self driving car crash. An investigation found that the driver had seven seconds to intervene before the car collided with a wall. He just wasn’t paying attention and that’s only one of the most common errors that occurs on the road. Read more
