Default 2015 GT500 keeping the 662 hp Trinity 5.8

Just received my December issue of Car and Driver with an article on the 2015 Mustang. Article titled, we leak the 2014 Mustang. They report initial offerings of the GT500 will keep the 662 hp Trinity 5.8 and sport a new independent rear suspension.

She's looking good and still looks like a mustang.

I'll believe it when I see it actually in the car.

IF they used the 5.8 with the IRS, I think parts will be scattering on the pavement soon..

Repair parts are a money making machine.

It might have been better, for 13/14 owners at least, if the 5.8 Trinity did not carry over into the new car. At least they could have had something unique and special. It's a smart move on Ford's part to encourage people to trade up if this is true. A 5.8 Trinity in a newer, smaller, lighter car.

I will not trade in my 2014. It has an aggressive look that I like. The 15 is nice but I am not into the euro look ford is leaning too now on every car. Maybe it is just me but they are almost starting to look the same in the front.

Insider reports say the 5.8 doesn't fit in the new chassis.
I love my Trinity, but the Niche Line guys that actually build it report its done after this year. C&D probably is wrong, but we will see.

Agree, love my '14, plan to keep it forever and eventually buy my dad's '67 GT500...maybe first and last GT500s?
