The Ford Mustang Gets a Little Muscle-yier

Ford has released details for the 2015 Mustang due in showrooms this fall. It costs about $1000 more than the 2014, even though it hasn't had many major changes. The outgoing model sold for $23,335 while the new one is going for $24,425. Both prices are for base models.

The new Mustang comes in a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters. The base version has a 3.7-liter V6 engine with 300hp. A turbocharged Eco-boost 2.3-liter 4-cylinder is also available along with a 5.0-liter V8. These will give you 305hp or 420hp respectively. The weight of the hefty vehicle hasn't changed much, even with the adoption of aluminum fenders.

Updates include an independent rear suspension, HID headlights, rear view camera system, keyless entry, and SYNC connectivity with a 4.2-inch color screen. The interior has also been updated to include a tilting and telescoping steering wheel. All of the updates are standard and Ford believes the new technology available justifies the price hike. There is also an optional Performance Package which will include larger brakes and summer tires.

There are no numbers yet on fuel efficiency.

The 2015 Mustang will make its debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show next January, but the new model will be in showrooms in the fall. Ford plans to have a convertible out to dealerships by the end of the year.

If you simply can't wait to get one, Ford is taking orders now. Contact your local Ford dealer to put in your request.
