That rear end on the 2015 is god awful. That slope is aweful and those taillights are horrible as well.

This is a beauty of modern rear end and taillight awesomeness.

See, now from the back straight up, I think the 2015 looks great. From a slight angle though, where you see the tail light ridges, that's what I'm not so sure about.

Yeah.The back of the 2015 feels much more like say a BMW or Audi (NOT similar shape, but same "look and feel" if you know what I mean). Obviously people disagree, but I like the "rugged", musclely feel of the 2011-14 back instead of the sportier looking 2015.

I get it, you guys don't like the back end. Personally I feel the '13-14 tails still had like 2-4 years left in them and absolutely loved mine.

I think this is the look they were going for with the retro fastback approach and I like them...

I think your right about that look they were trying to go with the retro fastback approach but confused because the 2015 is not a retro model. Retro is the 2005-2014, S197. This is the all new furtureistic 2015. Remember, Ford was supposed to be designing an all new fresh original modern stang and that really fell to pot. They tried to make the rear look retro but instead it looks silly and cheap knockoff and so doesn't work with the car.

Tell us how you really feel lol. Again I have to agree to disagree but just MHO and seems I'm heavily outnumbered on this one, at least here. All good though man I'm still going to have to call my dr the day it shows up because I will have one of those 4 + hour woodys that hurt.

I was disappointed when it first came out, but it's growing on me and seeing one in person will probably help. But I think that's the problem with it. Most people seem to have a big issue with a part of the design, they either hate the rear end or the front end or side design. It's hard to plop down that much money when you have doubts about a major part of the design.

It'll be interesting to see what Ford does if its a hit in Europe, but not here.

I'm sure they'll sell out of initial shipments, but will sales take off when people start seeing them on the streets or drop off. Also most people really like the 13-14 and see this as an opportunity to get a good deal on one of those. The 2015 price tag is an issue too.


Chevy runs deep, don't step in Chevy.

...It seems like Ford is going more for the European
This is what I'm thinking. I guess the main target for Ford is European peeps.

I agree with you. When I was seeing the 2015 in pics and what others had to say about it I wasn't liking it at all. That front end looked plain ugly, the only things I liked was the booty and body. Tailights are ok, they tried a retro look didn't come out to good IMO.

I was lucky enough to see the '15 at the dealership and wow it sure looked different. But the front end still looked kinda off. Though the '15 is growing on me but I still don't seem to like the colors, only good ones are the ingot silver and the dark colors excluding Guard.

After people start seeing them on the road and in person they might have a change of heart. I know one of my cousin's likes the '15 and thinking about getting one. If I were to buy one, personally it would have to be a convertible in either ingot silver or black. I seem to like the convertible more than the coupe.

Let's see what happens with the sales.

P.S. just as Ford is being critizied of the looks of the '15 the designers of the '15 should be too, imo

I have ordered a 2015 2.3L with performance package.
Although there are a couple minor styling issues, the complete package over all is great imo.
I wanted a daily driver that I can still go have run on weekends. The new suspension should give this pony a great feel on the asphalt, and the 3:55 rearend will make it quick off the line. Paddle shifters for that feel of a standard is nice as my 50 year old hips would hate me if I had bought standard .
Love the new interior, having decided not to buy in 2013 because I found the interior very generic. Good use of better quailty materials. Yeah no cheap plastic knobs all aluminum.

As with every vehicle there are people who love it or hate it, I love it.
Cheers ecobeast
