Ford will give its 2015 model year Mustang a heavy makeover with very futuristic styling cues and new powertrains. Its next-gen Mustang will ditch its retro styling that it has had for a while in favor of a new design that’s actually inspired by the all-new Fusion sedan. The Wall Street Journal reports that the Mustang for 2015 will feature many new styling cues in order to attract younger buyers, with many who have already seen renderings saying that it looks practically the same as the Evos with a bit of Aston Martin flair mixed in.

But those in the know also say that it will retain a few of its iconic design hints like its shark-nosed grille and round headlights. Still no word on what engines might power the 2015 Mustang, but we’ve heard both turbocharged four-and six-cylinder engines could possibly be used. It’s also said that the new model Mustang will be getting rid of its archaic solid rear axle for a modern independent setup, which means a smoother ride. Look for the next-generation ‘Stang to make its first public debut sometime in 2014.
