Feel free to draw your own conclusions from the weight comparison chart above. Just keep in mind, weight measurement standards, trim packages and options change year-to-year. So, even though the weight may have increased, we still do now know exactly what is included with the weight figures Ford provided above. It is possible the 2015 has more standard features and requirements than the 2014 did, all things that could increase weight. These two cars are very close in comparison, but it does seem from the above numbers that the 2015 S550 Mustang has indeed increased in weight over its S197 counterpart. Even though the 6th generation ponycar weighs ~100 lbs more, there will always be aftermarket parts available and unnecessary components that can be removed that will help return the Mustang back to S197 weight levels. There is reason to rejoice in that we now know this car is not gaining the 250-300 lbs previously purported by other sources.
