The Aerodynamics of the 2015 Ford Mustang

by Paul Strauss

While there’s been some dissent about the design of the 2015 Ford Mustang among classic Mustang purists, reception has generally been positive. Certainly, the addition of a live rear axle and some of its other technological improvements have been met with elation. One area that hasn’t really been discussed up until now is how the new Mustang’s design will improve the car’s aerodynamic properties.

In this short video from Ford, we get a look inside the car’s aerodynamic changes, which resulted in a 3% decrease in drag when compared to the previous generation pony car. While that might not seem like a big difference, when you’re on a track, every little bit helps. It certainly doesn’t hurt fuel efficiency either.

Perhaps the biggest changes are the new hood vents, which help reduce lift from inside the engine bay, along with the front wheel aero curtains, which increase downforce by pushing air over the wheels.
