According to the Tech Blog
over on c|Net.com, "You can't drive Ford's next Mustang until 2014, but you can at least take it for a spin in Need for Speed Rivals
, starting now. The 2015 Ford Mustang joins the ranks of playable cars. A patch hitting all platforms sometime before the day is through will add the car to the game."
(Credit: Sarah Tew/CNET) c|Net goes on to point out,"It's the 50th anniversary of the Mustang and Ford is celebrating with a rebirth of the model, unveiling the biggest step forward the iconic pony car has seen in decades. A turbocharged, 2.3 liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine joins the traditional V6 and V8 options, while the quarter-mile-friendly live rear axle is finally being deleted in favor of a proper, independent setup. The new car is lighter, lower, leaner and, we think, very nice to look at. "The 2015 car's roofline sits 32mm lower, while the rear track is pushed out 70mm, 15mm at the front. It's an incredibly muscular posture and the sculpted body is far more modern than the outgoing fifth-generation, which now looks a bit clumsy by comparison. This new sixth-gen still has the retro flair that a Mustang buyer will want -- long hood, tri-bar tail lamps, analogue dials on the dashboard -- while still looking quite progressive."
