2015 Ford Mustang production kicks off at Flat Rock Assembly Plant

Article by Christian A., on August 28, 2014

If you already ordered the 2015 Mustang you will be happy to know that Ford started the production of its new pony car. It is a historic day as the 2015 Mustang is now a global sports car and will be available in more than 120 countries around the world. The sixth-generation Mustang also marks the addition of the right-hand-drive version which means that you will probably see this new vehicle in markets such as the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa.

Ford’s new Mustang promises to fit any lifestyle and will be available with a 5.0-liter V8 engine that pumps out 435 hp and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque. Still, if you want a fuel-efficient engine, then the new 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine with 310 hp and 320 lb-ft (433 Nm) of torque is the right model for you.

According to the leaked fuel economy ratings, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine bolted to a 6-speed automatic transmission returns a fuel economy of 22 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg combined.

The 3.7-liter V6 engine delivers 300 hp and 320 lb-ft (433 Nm) of torque and using a six-speed manual transmission is able to return 17 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg combined. When equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission, the V6 engine returns a fuel economy of 19 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg combined.

Pricing for the all-new 2015 Mustang starts at $24,425 and for this amount of money you will get the 3.7-liter V6 engine but if you want the four-cylinder EcoBoost you pay $25,995. The V8-powered 2015 Mustang GT costs $32,925 but if you really want to feel special, then the Mustang GT 50 Year Limited Edition is the vehicle for you and arrives with a $46,996 price tag.

“Mustang is and will continue to be an automotive icon,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. “Expanding its availability globally affords our customers around the world the opportunity to have a true firsthand Mustang experience – one unlike any other.”
