2015 Ford Mustang GT Line-Lock Burnout

In this brief Short Cut, Autoblog's Steven Ewing demonstrates Line-Lock on the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. Accessed through an on-screen performance menu, the feature temporarily locks the front brakes to help you heat up the rear tires for better traction, as you would for drag racing. The result? A 15-second smokescreen.

Pictures of The 2015 Mustang RTR Spec 1 & 2

2015 Mustang RTR Spec II

The much anticipated debut of the 2015 Mustang RTR has finally come; the next generation of RTR Mustang is here on the brand new S550 chassis! Back at the 2014 AmericanMuscle Car Show, the 2015 Mustang RTR was officially revealed to the public and now we are finally getting to see the car in person and learn about what a beast this new RTR Mustang is. Last week we got a small glimpse of what it has to offer with a spy video captured of the 2015 Mustang RTR drifting. This week, tune into the blog on 11/6/2014 for full video of these monsters laying down rubber!

With many claiming the 2015 Mustang to be the best Mustang yet, it seems the 2015 RTR is the best Mustang RTR to date. The 2015 Mustang RTR is offered in two different packages, Spec 1 and Spec 2, which offer completely different driving experiences. Spec 1 focuses on the styling of the Mustang while Spec 2 focuses on styling and performance.

2015 RTR Spec I

A 2015 Mustang RTR Spec 1 offers a RTR chin spoiler, RTR rear spoiler, RTR rear diffuser with side splitters, RTR rocker splitter, RTR upper grill with integrated lighting, and RTR lower grill.

2015 RTR Spec II

The Spec 2 RTR benefits from the Spec 1 upgrades as wells as the adjustable dampers, adjustable sway bars, lowering springs, RTR exclusive exhaust system by Magnaflow, RTR custom tuning, RTR cold air intake, and optional supercharger. With the supercharger, Spec II’s horsepower would jump up to 725 RWHP.

Ford has really done an amazing job with the new 2015 Ford Mustang,” says Vaughn Gittin Jr. “The all new platform has very easily allowed us to mesh RTR’s tastefully-aggressive styling and modified performance to offer our most capable, best-handling fun-to-drive RTR’s to date. If the slightly modified performance of the our Spec 1 is not enough, customers that demand more are sure to get their kicks with the up to 725 horsepower and optional fully-adjustable suspension that allows the driver to easily adjust the balance of the chassis to their liking. We feel we have developed very diverse and refined offerings, which was our number one goal to support the global release of the 2015 Ford Mustang and ensure our customers keep smiling and having fun behind the wheel of his or her RTR.

2015 RTR Engine Options & Availability

The new RTRs will be available with all three engine options; 2.3L EcoBoost, 3.7L V6, and 5.0L GT RTR Mustangs will be available for retail this January at RTR authorized Ford Dealerships. If you own a 2015 Mustang and want to upgrade it with RTR parts, AmericanMuscle is your go-to dealer for everything RTR and will have 2015 RTR Mustang Parts available in January, 2015.

Ford spills SEMA all over its Expeditions

Ford Expedition for SEMA

If you're going to this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, it's going to be tough to miss the Ford booth, simply for its size. The Blue Oval is bringing over a dozen customized examples of the 2015 Mustang and a quintet of modded Transits. The latest announced addition is a trio of upgraded 2015 Expeditions showing different takes on the recently refreshed SUV.

Any vehicle tuned by Dub Magazine needs to ride on massive wheels, and the Expedition (pictured above) that it has for SEMA is no exception. The SUV has 26-inch Dropstars wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires, and, making them look even larger, the suspension is also lowered. The rest of the custom has some mild upgrades like mesh grilles in front, tinted windows, an integrated radar detector and new upholstery inside.

Tijn wants to boost the performance of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 for its take on the Expedition. The company claims to add 40 horsepower to bring total output to a claimed 405 by upgrading the engine with a charge cooler from Vortech Engineering, a custom side exhaust and a custom tune. To match the extra grunt, the SUV also gets bigger brakes, an Air Lift suspension and 24-inch, copper-colored wheels with custom fender flares.

Finally, Vaccar is prepping an Expedition for winter driving with the goal of turning the interior into a "rolling lodge," according to lead designer Aaron Vaccar. Inside, the upholstery is redone in silver Ultra-Suede. In preparation for when the snow starts falling, the SUV also gets a brush bar up front, swiveling hooks and roof rack basket from Yakima. Scroll down to read all of the details about this trio, and check out the gallery to check out the other customs.
