Although the Frankfurt Auto Show is still a couple of weeks away, Ford has taken the wraps off its most important concept vehicle for the next few years: The Ford Evos. As Ford continues to move its product line into a stronger global strategy during tough economic times while working to meet even more stringent fuel economy standards, the Evos concept car signals a new and exciting design vocabulary that will begin to show up in its passenger cars starting with the 2015 model year.
Among those cars will be the 2015 Mustang, which will be built on a new global platform, and sold in countries such as the United Kingdom, Japan, and Australia. If you squint carefully, you can make out some key styling elements that will make their way onto the new Mustang, including the prominent use of trapezoid shapes, thin aerodynamic headlight modules, and grill openings that are markedly higher (and thinner) than current Ford models. We also have it on good authority that the new Mustang will be designed in Ford’s Cologne, Germany studio, and will be devoid of all retro styling cues. Nevertheless, we do anticipate that key iconic Mustang traits such as the gas cap, side c-scoops, and triple taillights will remain, making the Mustang recognizable to all the ponycar faithful.
