Big cubic inch motors are a thing of the past.

I know it is a new design for Ford, the flat plane. I don't know if I like (or understand ) the Plasma Transfer Wire Arc coating technology for the cylinder walls.

The 13s and 14s will go down in history like the 71 and 72 Mach 1s did. The last of the American Muscle car look and feel. After that, it will be seen as the mid 70s all over again. Smaller engines, more rounded styling, and a more Euro feel. Technically better, but the soul is gone.

I get compliments about my 14. I've seen the same people look at a 15 going by and when I tell them it's the new Mustang, they say "Oh. That looks nice." There's just no visceral reaction as the American Muscle Car DNA is just smoothed out too much.

Get the 14 in green or ruby red. The two special tricoat colors will be far more collectible as well and look better for many more years.

The engines aren't getting any smaller? Just added the 4 cyllinder option.

The fact that the car is aimed purely at worldwide sales means that the V8 will likely go away for a turbo 6 and be a special order option/that you can get in the Shelby. The normal V6 is currently only sold in Canada and the U.S. - the rest of the World's base model is the ecoboost 4.

Likely go away and replaced are 2 different things. Even if ford plans to do that it likely won't be for at least 3-4 years. The fact is if you like the 13-14s engines and power it's completely hypocritically to say you don't like what's in the 15s as they basically identical.

I personally don't think there is that much of a difference between the looks of the 14s vs the 15s. And honestly I think an 05 looks more different then the 14s then the 14s look different then the 15s.

The 13-14 would be my vote because I think the resale value would be higher and I love the feel of the solid axle

I had a 14 V6 and went to a 15 GT a week ago. The 15 is a lot more refined. It rides better, handles bumpy roads a lot better and feels a lot more stable. The v6 versus v8 difference is really not that big of a deal unless you are racing people all the time. The 14 V6 came with a 2.73 rear axle and when I was going up hills with the cruise on it would bog down and require a downshift. The 15 V6 now come stock with the 3.31 and has the 3.55 optional. Once you are up to speed the noise of the exhause is the only difference. I test drove an EcoBoost and hated it, then after I had decided on the GT I found out they put 87 Octane in it and the power drops dramatically. If it had premium in the tank I might have actually considered it. I was test driving manual versions and the auto may be different. Heat soak is only an issue in stop and go traffic and usually goes away when your moving again. I had a 06 Subaru STI and it had the same issue. It's hard to make a bad choice with any of your selections but I would drive them all multiple times before you decide and if the dealer complains pick different dealer.
