Ford only recently unveiled the 2015 Mustang and its is an all-new car. The new Mustang gets independent rear suspension and new engine options. The car can now be had with a turbo charged 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder making the first time since the 80's a turbo four has been available in the Mustang.

In the future, Ford is looking at ways to get the new global Mustang more efficient and green. Go Auto reports that to meet the green goals Ford is considering electric, hybrid, and even diesel power. Ford wants to sell a lot of Mustangs outside of the US and diesel is a common choice for drivers in Europe.

Hybrid power is also becoming common on sports cars all around the world. I really see no call for an all-electric Mustang. Future Mustangs might also get the nine and ten speed transmissions Ford and GM are working on together.
