From the hmm section of the rumorpile, Reuters is reporting that Ford has invited a small number of journalists to get a sneak peek of the 2015 next week. Sources say the group will include a number of European journalists which is perfect since previous rumors have said the next Mustang has been designed to appeal to people outside the U.S.
Sources have also said the new Mustang will have a modern design, and more efficient engines and transmissions. From previous reports we expect the new Mustang to take some elements of the Evos concept car, dropping the solid-axle setup for an independent rear suspension, a V6 and V8 engine, and the possibility of a new EcoBoost four-cylinder with 350 horsepower.
Now, the journalists who have been invited have been put under a strict embargo till Ford gives the go ahead. This could happen in December as that's the possible date Ford will unveil the next-generation model. But time and time again, embargos are broken before a show and all is known. It could happen here.
