H Geoff .
It would turn out to expensive to do this swap as the 2015 is common rail injection .
Meaning fuel tank swap , engine mounts and position of drive line is completely different, so you would need to replace the transmission and anchor points ,
ECM and complete wiring harness BCM and immobilizer system.
Dash instrument cluster etc etc.
You would need a complete Accident vehicle to be able to do this a little cheaper .
This could be done but as said a donor vehicle and a lot of fabrication work ..
