    2015 Mustang Goes on a Diet

    http://www.edmunds.com/car-news/2015...on-a-diet.html


    • The redesigned 2015 Ford Mustang will be slightly smaller and several hundred pounds lighter when the car goes on sale next year, Edmunds has learned.




    • The Mustang will shed around 400 pounds in a quest to improve fuel economy, said a source familiar with the Mustang program.




    • The dimensions of the 2015 Mustang will be reduced and the car will use lighter-weight materials as well.





    "There is going to be less overhang" in the front, rear and on the sides of the Mustang, the source said.

    "The overall length will be something like 8 percent (approximately 15 inches) shorter," the source said.

    The 2014 Mustang is 188.5 inches in length and rides on a 107.1-inch wheelbase.

    "The width will be a little less than 10 percent (about 6.5 inches) narrower," the source said.

    The 2014 model is 73.9 inches wide.

    So happy it's getting smaller. My '13 is amazing, but man this is a big car.

    The overhang changes are good, lets hope they are trying for 50/50 weight distribution.....
