2015 Ford Mustang GT vs. 2014 Ford Mustang GT

2015 Ford Mustang GT is the most advanced Mustang ever but for some folks, nothing looks as good as a 2014 Mustang GT, the car is flat-out gorgeous.

Let’s take a closer look using practical variables, but keep in mind that the purchase of a Mustang is often driven by emotion more than anything else.

Exterior design

Ford’s designers made the 2015 model sleeker and more muscular. The 2015 model appears much sportier and visually slimmer than the 2014. The 2015 Mustang’s styling is a definite improvement over the 2014’s design.mustang 2 mustang 3

Interior design

Both cars feature a ton of optional technology, including selectable driving modes, Sync with AppLink connectivity, and Track Apps that record acceleration times, braking performance, and g-forces. As with the exterior, the 2015 Mustang retro cues are toned down to give the cabin a more modern look. The interior feels a bit more sports car than muscle car, but still familiar to anyone stepping out of the 2014 Mustang.


The 2015 Mustang is equipped with a standard Intelligent Key passive entry system with push-button starting and a tyre pressure monitoring system that takes separate readings at each wheel. It has a Track Apps technology, dual-zone automatic climate control, driver-selected steering and powertrain driving modes.


The 2015 Mustang has independent-rear suspension in place of the 2014’s solid axle. Speaking of drag strips, Ford has also made electronic line lock standard equipment on the V8-powered Mustang GT. This allows the driver to easily do a burnout a necessary part of drag-race prep by locking the front brakes. The improved suspension alone should make the 2015 Mustang superior to the 2014, while the line-lock feature should be good for a few bar boasts.

The new version of America’s pony car is a more fuel-efficient machine. It has three engines, 3.7-liter V6 installed in the standard model and the Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V8 are essentially the same as before, though the engineers made minor upgrades and refinements for duty in the redesigned model.



When you take a look at the Mustang’s reliability track record, your impressions are coloured by the source of information you use. According to J.D. Power, the Mustang has long been a quality and dependability leader in its class, having won multiple awards over the years. If you scan Consumer Reports, you will find that models with a V6 engine rate an average score, while V8 models prove more troublesome.

With the new Mustang, the reliability ratings are different depending on how you measure things. Given a newfound emphasis on quality and materials, coupled with improvements to existing powertrains, buyers of the 2015 Mustang might find their cars to be more impressive.

Based on what Ford has shared thus far about the redesigned 2015 Mustang, is more fuel-efficient, technologically advanced and safer. Still, if you are interested in getting a killer deal on an iconic American pony car that is reasonably safe, dependable and fuel-efficient in V6 format, grab the 2014 Mustang while you still can.
