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.
Speaking of the euro look, has anyone else seen the resemblence in the front-end of the 2015 to the Jaguar lines?

I'll keep mine regardless, why would I trade up when it would have the same motor and not as nice looking? To save a few pounds and have a floaty ride? No... no..
I'm going by what a couple very informed people that come around this site every now and again have to say. I'll just believe it when I see it in the car. Not saying with 100% certainty it won't, just saying I won't believe it until I see it.
Possibly an aftermarket car (saleen, or a Roush?) I could see that... Maybe shelby america will be trying to force one in there. I don't think it will be a factory car though.

IF they used the 5.8 with the IRS, I think parts will be scattering on the pavement soon..
Could not agree more. Ford gave us "a gift" with the Termis with the amount of power that lower end can hold. But, slap a pair of slicks on an otherwise stock application, and half shafts explode. But this to can be said with a coyote motor as well. If them tires are gonna stick, the weak link has to move to the next vulnerable component. True drag racing cars will swap to solid rear axles...been there done that.

Dumb question, but is IRS that much less durable than solid axle?
I personally have never broken an IRS. It's always in my mind in the Terminator. Roll into it, then stab the gas. My Mach has a solid axle. 3500 RPM, launch it! No worries.
All the high HP guys swap the IRS for a SRA for durability. As for the road coarse guys, they like the IRS, more stable in corners.
I just can't imagine 630 ft pounds of torque from the 5.8 doing any favors for an IRS. Bang! Ding Ding Ding. Call the rollback.
It would be nifty if the Trinity got another year, but a twin-turbo bigger-bore 5.0 variant could be even more nasty...
Is it just me, or does it seem that some are simply hypnotized by the 5.8 displacement figure, and the coolness of the word "Trinity"??
I mean, it's not like Ford can't produce a boosted Coyote variant that would render the Trinity as "second-most-powerful" on the Ford production engine list. It's not a matter of whether they could do it, it's more a matter of whether the bean-counters would be complicit with costs involved in making that much h.p. durable throughout the car's entire driveline.
If Ford did a Boss 351, I think they'd try to make the displacement happen with the superior-breathing Coyote engine. 5.8 vs 5.8, the Coyote would torch the Trinity in N/A form... At least that's my forecast.
Then again, I'm blabbing out of ignorance, as I don't know what the available "envelope" is with the Coyote block as it pertains to potential stroking or bore increases.
Anyone know about that?? Bueller?? Bueller??
