2014 NAIAS: The 2015 Mustang By the Numbers

The 2015 Mustang has been visiting the North American International Auto Show, and more than just tons of new photos, we’re also getting a lot of hard numbers out of its appearance. Now numbers are a potent source of information, but they can be confusing when listed one after the other or cluttered together. It’s better when visual references are provided to put the data into perspective.

Enter CJ Pony Parts, one of the oldest Ford Mustang retailers in the world. They operate a 36,000 square foot warehouse in Harrisburg, PA, where they provide an offering of more than 50,000 Mustang parts. CJ Pony Parts has put together an exhaustive infographic on the 2015 model, complete with comparisons to the ponycar’s competition.

We also think that since we’re talking about the 2015 Mustang, we might as well start the Year of the Horse off strong by tallying the many recognitions it has amassed since arriving in Cobo Hall.

For starters, Motor Trend selected the 2015 Mustang GT as one of its “Top 10 Best Drivers Car Prospects,” praising the inclusion of independent rear suspension, as well as the Performance Package with Brembo brakes, summer tires, and a 3.73 rear axle with Torsen limited slip.

Next, it made two of Car and Driver’s lists, landing on both their “7 Cars We (and You) Can’t Wait to Drive” and their “12 Hottest Debuts of the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.”

And finally, the automotive design community awarded the 2015 Mustang the recognition of best production car at the Detroit show. Thirty judges considered every car at the show before selecting the Mustang for its “beautiful” and “modern” design.

We can’t find any reason to disagree.
