Ford Motor Co. will give new meaning to the term "muscle car" in 2014 by rolling out a Mustang that features a small engine with big power numbers.
The 2015 Mustang will offer a choice of three engines, but the headliner will be the new 2.3-liter inline four-cylinder model, which produces 305 HP and 300 lb-ft of torque at the low end. Key to the performance is a long menu of high-tech features, including direct injection, dual-scroll turbocharger, and an aluminum block and head.
"Yes, it will be part of the solution for fuel efficiency mandates going forward," Steve Ling, marketing manager for Ford Motor Co., told Design News. "But at the end of the day, it's a Mustang, so it has to be fun to drive. It has to be peppy."

The 2015 Mustang features a lower, wider stance with a reduction in roof height and wider rear fenders. Since the introduction of the Mustang in April 1964, Ford has sold more than nine million of them.
