The 2014.5 Ford Mustang: Everything We Know

In case you don't know the 2014.5 Mustang is the new design based on the s550 platform. Jalopnik has a couple of good articles that go into what they know so far.

Recently, two Mustang owners claim they got to see the 2014.5 Mustang in the flesh at a consumer clinic. They've leaked everything they know about the upcoming car and a lot of what you've heard so far may be wrong.

LOL @ the kidnap kenblock thing. They are serious about it too!

This is the good part right here

Powertrain

The past two generations of the Mustang have been seriously impressive with their powertrains. The current V6 gets 300 horsepower and 30 mpg, and the current V8 is just awesome. Only one 2014.5 car was present, but the stat sheet had three options: a V8, and EcoBoost, and a four cylinder.
They listed the V8 on the stat sheet and Ecoboost was listed. We did not get to actually see the engines. One of the questions the computer asked was, "would you buy the V8 over the 4 cylinder for $8000 more?" That does not mean that is what is going to happen. It was just one of the questions asked.
The second person to see the car remembered three engine options as well.
The questions about the Mustang included 3 engine options, one of which was the 5.0. We did not look under the hoods.

We've basically already had the turbocharged Mustang confirmed, which would mean a turbo-four (SVO maybe>), a V8 for sure, and possibly an EcoBoost V6.

Actually I am bit confused. Is the 2014.5 model released before the 2015? If the the 2014.5 is based on the sixth gen platform, then the 2015 is the second model based on the redesign?

The 2014.5 and 2015 Mustang are the same car. The reason it is called 2014.5 is it is rumored the new 2015 Ford Mustang might debut in April 2014, possibly as a 2014 1/2 model, paying homage to the 1964 1/4 Mustang.

Sorry for the confusion. Most articles will strictly call it the 2015 Mustang.
