The latest out of Dearborn is that Ford is now accepting orders for the long-hyped 2015 Ford Mustang coupe. Thankfully, it will still cost less than $25,000 for your very own Ford Mustang, with the base V-6 model now starting at $24,425 including destination fees.
That base price for the 2015 Ford Mustang V-6 coupe is $1090 more than last year, reflecting the car's brand new design and longer list of standard equipment. In addition to the fully independent front and rear suspension, all new Ford Mustang vehicles come with a rear view camera, SYNC connectivity, a 4.2-inch infotainment screen with two USB ports, HID headlights, keyless entry, and push-button start.
Optional upgrades include a larger eight-inch touchscreen with navigation, blind-spot alert, adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning, selectable driving mode functionality, and an electronic line lock for Mustang GT models. For a still-unknown cost, customers will be able to select the Mustang Performance Package to add chassis bracing, upgraded suspension bushings, firmer springs and dampers, bigger brakes and wheels, and a shorter rear-axle ratio.
Also available is a 50 Years trim package for both Mustang EcoBoost Premium and Mustang GT Premium vehicles. The limited-edition package, announced at the 2014 New York auto show, will add a chrome-accented grille, windows, and taillight surrounds; 50 Years badging and floor mats; special interior stitching; louvered quarter windows; and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Ford remains tight-lipped about specific performance numbers, and is for now holding off on pricing for the Mustang EcoBoost and GT. The base 3.7-liter V-6 will make at least 300 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, while the turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder we recently rode in will produce upwards of 305 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. At the top of the heap is the iconic Mustang GT, which boasts over 420 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque from its 5.0-liter V-8. All Mustang models can be ordered with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
Ford dealers will have the 2015 Ford Mustang for sale in showrooms this fall.
