For everything we know about the 2015 Ford Mustang, we still don’t have some of the most important numbers, like power or cost. Ford has finally released pricing for the base Mustang V6, and it will start at $24,425 including destination.
That’s about an $1,100 increase over the outgoing Mustang, and is actually quite the bargain when you look at how much more Mustang you get for your money. The 2015 Mustang will come standard with a number of high-end features, including push button start, a 4.2 inch LCD screen with SYNC connectivity, and a backup camera system. And of course I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the new independent rear suspension that is also a big to-do for Mustang fans who have until now made due with a solid rear axle.
But the biggest news by far is the new 2.3 liter EcoBoost engine, which will slot between the 300 horsepower 3.7 liter V6 and the 420+ horsepower 5.0 V8. Alas, neither the EcoBoost nor GT models have been priced yet, or given horsepower ratings for that matter. With the base V6 just tax and title away from exceeding $25,000, it seems like the EcoBoost model could be pushing $30,000. That would mean the GT model might start at closer to $35,000, representing an across-the-board price increase for this pony car. But with ordering opening up today, you can bet that Ford dealers are finding themselves flooded with phone calls from future 2015 Mustang owners.
Ford has to fund all those nifty new features, after all, and for the Mustang faithful, this price increase is worth every penny.
