The 2015 Ford Mustang: An Inside Look With Ford CEO Alan Mullaly

The wait for the 2015 Ford (NYSE: F  ) Mustang has finally come to an end for Mustang faithful. In truly global fashion, the all-new iconic muscle car was unveiled Thursday around the world-- six cities on four continents.

Our Motor Money team of Rex Moore and John Rosevear were front and center to share their impressions of the 50th anniversary model of the Mustang. They also had the rare opportunity to get Ford's CEO Alan Mulally, executive director of design Moray Callum, and chief engineer Dave Pericak to give their thoughts on the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang.

So what's the verdict? The new Mustang has some major improvements, but it isn't a radical departure from what came before. There are good reasons for that, it turns out. As Rex and John -- and Alan Mulally himself -- explain in this very special video, the 2015 Mustang is a global product. For the first time, Ford is going to sell the Mustang all over the world. But the 2015 Mustang hasn't been watered down for a global audience.

Instead, Ford made sure that the new Mustang retains its distinct American accent, along with plenty of all-American performance. Ford's research showed that that's what fans around the world have been craving, and it's on the way. 

We learned a lot more. Ford designer Moray Callum, who led the Mustang's design team -- and who will take over as Ford's top global designer in January -- gave us a little bit of an idea of what it's like to approach the redesign of an icon. And the chief engineer, Dave Pericak, talked to us about what makes the new Mustang all-new -- and why, unlike most other Ford models the world over, the Mustang has its very own, unique platform.

It's all here in this very special on-the-scene edition of Motor Money. Watch the video below to experience the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang's unveiling right alongside John, Rex, and Ford's top executives, as they get up close with a shiny silver 2015 Ford Mustang GT convertible.

    I don't not like the new mean look front end.

    However, remove the silver pony, and it looks like a Fusion or any ordinary Ford of today.

    No transcript but enough content JR to be worth reading. Who knows I might even relent and watch the video even if it is lame.

    You beat about the bush when writing about the Ford global concept. This is Ford Management executing with integrity- doing what they said they would do. A strategy that is working.

    Long F, Long term.

    I like it well enough, but the design didn't go far enough. Just too reserve and wouldn't sell that well in a global market.

    I would have liked a little more tech info. How stiff is the frame / body. Does the convertible flex like all the previous versions? We know it has independent rear suspension, Is is all new or from the roush? Were do they think the skid pad will fall? Yeah herd about the eco engine yawn. What about the 5.0? Same as the 2014? I guess I will have to wait.

    @omorin34: I would have liked a little more tech info, too. Ford didn't give us much. But here's what I did learn: IRS is all-new design. They were coy about track numbers except to say that the new GT should outperform the 2013 Boss 302. Both the 5.0 and the V6 will get power boosts vs the current models, but they didn't say how much.

    Thanks for watching.
