Ford has finally taken the covers off its redesigned, sixth-generation Mustang
but the Blue Oval hasn’t revealed all the details just yet. In fact, the car’s chief engineer Dave Pericak has revealed that Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] is holding back on releasing details for some exciting new features found on the 2015 Mustang, one of which will be an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) first.
“[There are] a lot of new features and technology and I even have some that I’m not ready to tell you about, but we don’t forget how to play to the kid inside of us,” Pericak told Fox News
. “We’ve got another feature coming that will be an OEM first.”
There are a myriad of possibilities for this ‘secret’ feature but one possibility that would prove interesting is a system that could help drivers execute the perfect burnout, just as current launch control systems help drivers get off the line perfectly.
Some of the 2015 Mustang’s new features that we know of include an independent rear suspension
, a first for a regular production Mustang; a four-cylinder EcoBoost engine
with turbocharging, direct fuel injection and variable valve timing; electronic driving aids such as adaptive radar cruise control, blind spot monitoring and cross traffic alert systems; a Track App complete with a quarter mile timer; and driver-adjustable stability, steering systems, throttle and transmission systems.
You’ll have to keep guessing until Ford tells us its secret. The good news is that we should know by the end of next month as that is when Ford will be officially presenting the car at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show._______________________________________Follow Motor Authority on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
