Ford's (NYSE:F) 2015 Mustang is the first Mustang to be designed from the start as a global model. Unlike past versions of the model, this one will be sold in markets all over the world. 

That's a big change. To emphasize that point, Ford unveiled its new pony in a series of events around the world. In six different cities on four continents, the automaker hosted events featuring members of the all-new Mustang's design team and senior executives, giving analysts and media representatives an up-close look at the car and the thinking that went into its design. 

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

So what's the verdict? The new Mustang may look a lot like the car it's replacing, but it's quite a bit different. It's actually a big step forward for Ford. In this video, shot live at the New York event, Rex and John share their first impressions of Ford's hot new pony -- and give some insight into the Blue Oval's plans for the all-new Mustang.
