Default Appears that Ford has been reading comments

I went to the NAIAS last Saturday, finally had a chance to download my pictures. Big crowds around the 2015 Mustang display.

I noticed something about the cars. The yellow one was labeled as a prototype


And this is the rear end that we've all seen


When looking at the "production" version, I noticed that Ford changed the rear end treatment:


Really noticeable on the Race Red version




So apparently Ford saw the negative comments about the two tone look to the rear fascia

Wow, looks good either way but kinda cool that Ford is willing to change things this close to production.

Do you think this is maybe a trim thing? Like one might be a GT/CS or maybe a premium model feature?

They didn't have any placards out to say what equipment might be on the cars. But the red one isn't a GT/CS and neither is the yellow one (didn't have GT/CS badging, just the 5.0 and same rear badge). I think the convertible is a V6 but not positive.

Now that youve seen in person, did it change your opinion at all? What were your before and after opinions on the car? Im still very reticent about the changes

I like the 2 tone, but that's just me!

Yeah the two tone on the yellow looks good I would like to see how they pull it off with a black Mustang. And the top view picture makes it look weird too me.

I like it, pictures of course don't give you as good a look as the real thing. Ford definitely had the biggest crowds, all around the Mustang, and then the new F150.

Someone on another site said that the rear end treatment (two tone or body color) is a package. I don't know, could be, I'm pretty deaf so I couldn't understand the announcers when they did the "show" with people talking about the Mustang so it could be a special package.

I prefer the 2 tone as well. If Ford is reading these posts, then listen up. The price is getting too high. Also, I think since I've bought 7 mustangs in the past, where do I redeem my buy 7 get the 8th free punch card?

I'm a fan of the two tone also. It's one of the attractions I had to the front of my own car.

Seems better to me, but I'll really need to see it to know for sure.

It's good to hear they may be listening!

I don't necessarily like how it was on the prototype, but I think it would be better of that whole bottom of the bumper was black rather than body color. It just makes the bumper look even more huge as body color.

Darnit! I looked at the punch card and sure enough...Subway. lol

BTW - helluva nice ride. Tungsten (or whatever flavor Ford is calling that gray) will always be one of my favorite colors.

Shelly was supposed to be free. Did you forget the punch card in your wallet? I've done that before.
