stangDEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — The Ford Mustang is celebrating its 50th birthday with a new design and plans to go global.

Ford Motor Co. revealed the 2015 Mustang Thursday at events in New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Sydney, Barcelona and its hometown of Dearborn, Mich.

The car goes on sale next fall in North America and later in Europe and Asia.

The new car has plenty of cues from the old, including a long sculpted hood, sloping fastback and trapezoid-shaped grille with the Mustang logo. But it also has some new features, including a roof that tapers dramatically in the front and rear and narrower, more menacing headlights.

Ford won’t yet say how much the Mustang will cost, but the current version — which was redesigned in 2005 — starts at $23,000.
