Happy Mustang Day! On April 17, 1964, the original pony car was introduced to the world and phenomena was born.

A page allegedly taken from a Ford training manual shows just how much power that the 2015 Ford Mustang's 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine loses when burning lower octane fuel.

We also have a smattering of info on the Stang's updated transmissions and an exploded-parts-diagram view of its all-new independent rear suspension.
Forced induction may be making its way back into the Ford Mustang bloodstream very soon. A gaggle of fresh spy shots have cropped up on the interwebs showing a FoMoCo mule with a few interesting attributes, including a new fascia that may or may not be scooting air to an intercooler, and a hefty 9,000 rpm has been spotted on the tachometer.
