If you're a fan of Ford's redesigned 2015 Mustang, you'll be able to drive off with one of your own for $24,425 (including $825 for destination) when it hits showrooms this fall. That base price gets you into a fastback (coupe) model that is powered by a 3.7-liter V6. Compared with the base 2014 Mustang, you'll have to pony up $1,090 more for the base 2015 model.
Ford's new EcoBoost-powered Mustang, which features a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, starts at $25,995, while the Mustang GT, powered by a 5.0-liter V8, starts at $32,925 for the fastback. Opting for the base 2015 Mustang convertible costs $5,500 more than the base Mustang fastback. Both the Mustang EcoBoost and Mustang GT convertibles are only available in the top Premium trim.
With all models, a six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic transmission is optional for a price of $1,195.
All 2015 Mustangs come standard with a rearview camera, push-button start, an audio input jack and Ford's voice-controlled SYNC system, which includes Bluetooth and a USB port. A 50 Years Appearance Package, in honor of the Mustang's 50th anniversary, is available on Premium trim Mustangs, and EcoBoost and GT models are available with a performance package that adds sport-tuned suspension components, larger brakes and 19-inch wheels. Other optional features include adaptive cruise control with collision mitigation, rear parking sensors, navigation, the MyFord Touch infotainment interface, a 12-speaker Shaker audio system and Recaro front sport seats.
Ford still has yet to announce final power figures for each of the Mustang's engines. The only information provided thus far is that the V6 Mustang will have "at least 300 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque," the EcoBoost model will have "more than 305 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque" and the Mustang GT will have "more than 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque," according to Ford.
As we reported when it was unveiled in December, the 2015 Mustang gains an independent rear suspension, which auto journalists said will improve the Mustang's overall ride quality compared with the outgoing model.
