New 2015 Ford Mustang styling is already behind recent trends

The past trend for carmakers was to design cars with retro styling, and Ford may already be behind the styling curve as they take an all-new direction with the 2015 Mustang.

With sales of the Mustang languishing recently, and it being outsold by the Chevrolet Camaro for the last two years, Ford is looking to take the styling of the next-generation Mustang in a radical new direction. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the 2015 Mustang will look very different than the current 60s-inspired retro styling. But it may be coming a bit too slow because the auto industry has already moved in a new styling direction.

When you look at the most recent successful styling trends in the auto industry, cars like the Range Rover Evoque come to mind. The new crossover from Land Rover got its styling cues from a concept car with a radical new look. The Evoque has been so successful that Land Rover had to hire 1000 new employees to keep up with the demand. And the new styling of the Evoque just won the World Design Car of the Year award at the NYIAS. Porsche is launching an all-new similar concept-like design with their new Macan SUV that will begin production next year.
