    Spying: 2015 Ford Mustang Shows Its Face

    Sometimes, you get very lucky when taking spy shots. Case in point, new spy shots came out today revealing the face of the upcoming 2015 Mustang.

    The shots show the new Mustang sharing almost the same figure as the Ford Evos concept. The front has an athletic stance and features such touches as slimmer headlights and a hexagonal grille.

    The 2015 Mustang is expected to debut next year

    Very Cool Indeed and I agree, the mid 70's to early 80's we can forget about those so called Mutangs.

    You mean the Mustang II of 1974-78 I assume. Once the Mustang was put on the Fox platform in '79, all was essentially OK again. OF course, if Ford were to do this again, they could simply revive the late 1980s Probe.

    I was really surprised to see how much sales of this past redesign have plummeted so much. I wonder what was the cause behind that, was it really the design of the car that people didn't like? I personally though it looked really nice, but I almost never see any of them on the road. I was wondering if it had anything to do with the prices of gas going up, and people looking for more cost efficient vehicles. I had the 99 model mustang previously, and was considering getting one of the new ones when they redesigned them in 2005.

    I think the Camaro and Challenger cut into the sales some...the Mustang had the market to themselves for the most part in '05-09. Anecdotal, of course, but I seem to see more Camaros and Challengers out and about than '10-14 Mustangs.

    I think a lot of it had to do with the price of the car. How many people you know these days that can afford to go to the dealer and spend $30k+ on a new car? I am a very talkative guy and I talk with a lot of the local mom and pop business owners/managers in my area. And business is down everywhere, and a lot of them are struggling to keep the door open. The only businesses doing really good in my area are Walmart and pawn shops.

    Yeah, but the Camaro, even with its compromised interior and heavy curb weight, regularly outsold the Mustang at roughly the same price. So it wasn't price keeping the mustang down... those customers were going to Chevy.

    New Car buyers are a fickle lot and when there was only the New Old Fastback tribute mustang, everyone flocked to it. Once the Camero and Challenger came out those that had a 1-3yr old mustang left for new look at me territory. They will probably flock back to the mustang once the new redesign comes out as it will be new, shinny and rare on the roads.

    I think the 2015 Mustang will finally be a true driver's car. I'm excited about the independent rear suspension which will finally silence the detractors of the live rear axle. Will it be available in Europe as well?

      We know that Jeep is planning to replace the Compass and Patriot with one new model later this year, and we now have our first look at it undisguised. Brazilan outlet AUTOO got their hands of the new model before a photo shoot. 
      We can't tell if the name is Compass or something else on the front door due to the poor quality of the pictures. Everyone seems to believe it is Compass so we're going with that. The design looks to be a mashup of Grand Cherokee in the front and Cherokee for the remainder. There is the iconic seven-slot grille up front, albeit somewhat narrow. 
      AUTOO says the Brazilian-spec Compass will be offered with a 2.0L Tigershark four-cylinder or 2.0L Turbodiesel. Both engines will come paired with a nine-speed automatic and the choice of front or all-wheel drive. It would be safe to assume that the U.S. version will come with the 2.4L Tigershark.
      Jeep will debut the next Compass at the at the São Paulo Auto Show in Brazil this November. Expect a debut for the U.S. sometime thereafter.

      While Ford is introducing an updated 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and ten-speed automatic for the 2017 F-150, the 2018 F-150 is more interesting to us. This is because Ford will be giving their full-size truck a facelift and a diesel engine. Thanks to Car and Driver, we're able to get a closer look via a set of spy shots.
      We'll begin with the facelift. Ford has done a decent job with the camouflage, but we can pick out a new grille design that seems to mimic the F-Series super duty. Expect new headlights, along with new taillights and wheel choices.
      We have reported previously on the venturi exhaust and a video with the noises of a diesel engine . Now we have more proof of the diesel engine. Thanks to a Ford engineer leaving the hood open, we have gotten our first clear look at the diesel engine. We can't tell much about the engine aside from there being a mess of hoses and wires. You might be asking how we know this is a diesel. Two key items give it away; a diesel fuel inlet behind the fuel filler door and a sign taped inside saying"Diesel Fuel Only!"
      Everyone believes the diesel engine in question is a 3.0L turbodiesel V6 that is used in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport TD6 models. This engine produces 254 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.
