Rumor has it that the 2015 Ford Mustang will be lighter and smaller to satisfy European clients demand and to better the fuel economy. However, this info has not yet been confirmed. According to Edmunds.com, the newest Mustang version will lose 400 pounds. In addition, it will be 6.5 inches narrower, and 15 inches shorter. They wrote: “That car will be around for 8 to 10 years so it has to meet anticipated regulatory requirements for that long period of time.”
The reduction has been made possible due to the usage of lighter, but yet stronger materials: “They are going to use more aluminum, better structural engineering in terms of spot welds and so on and so forth, basically using less material and making it stronger,” Edmunds has been informed. There will be less overhang on the rear, front and sides.
However, these alterations do not go chargeless. The costs are estimated to go up about 10 percent.
