This is the sound of the 2015 Mustang GT firing and revving

You’ve seen what the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang looks like. You’ve read its specs. But what does it sound like? Well, delightfully, we have that for you, too.

Yes, I’ll admit it’s not the best example of the acoustics of the updated Coyote 5.0-liter V8. But it’s better than nothing, right?

That upgraded 5.0 now makes 420 ponies, up 8 hp over the last version of the Coyote.

I absolutely love the sound of the Coyote underneath the 2015 skin. I, however, have always loved the sounds of the Coyote. The sounds I am really curious to hear are those of the new 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder that will be wedged between the base V6 and the V8 as the mid-level powerplant. I suspect, though, we won’t hear that one roar for a little while

Want to learn more about the 2015 Ford Mustang? Check out our full breakdown.

If you’re curious to know how it drives, you’ll have to wait for our first drive report early next year. Until then, these dulcet V8 tones will have to do.

Ford is eager to capitalize on the Mustang Mach-E's popularity by releasing a smaller, more affordable model in the coming years. While development work is on-going, company sources hinted the yet-unnamed car will use Volkswagen parts.

Decision-makers on both sides of the Atlantic are already plotting ways to expand the Mustang family beyond the well-known two-door model and the aforementioned Mach-E crossover, according to Murat Gueler, Ford's chief designer. "Yes, we have already talked about expansion, to some sort of family," he confirmed to British magazine Auto Express.

One version of the electric Ford Mustang Mach-E is already sold out

Ford ruffled more than a few feathers when it decided to call its first purpose-designed electric car the Mustang Mach-E. While some argue it's not worthy of wearing the hallowed Mustang nameplate, its target audience doesn't seem to mind one bit, and one of the five Mach-E variants announced during the model's unveiling is already sold out.

The trim-level hierarchy include five models named Select, Premium, California Route 1, First Edition, and GT, respectively. The Blue Oval's official website notes that every First Edition model has already been spoken for. It sounds like a limited-edition model, and it might be, but Ford chose not to disclose how many units of the model it will make. It might cap production after manufacturing a predetermined number of First Edition variants, or it might build the model for a certain amount of time. We've reached out to the company to learn more, and we'll update this story if we hear back.
