  2. Ford Mustang: The more modernly styled Mustang is lighter and wider for 2015 with a new engine option.

  8. Mercedes-Benz C-Class: Appearing hugely improved over its predecessor, the 2015 grows in size and offers a suite of high-tech safety features.
  9. Ford F-150: The truck’s huge makeover for 2015 includes a pumped-up grille, a weight-saving aluminum body and several new powertrains.
