Article by Christian A., on July 18, 2014

At last, Ford revealed the official numbers delivered by the engines used on the 2015 Mustang. As a result, we found out that the 5.0-liter V8 engine generates 435 hp and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque, which makes the 2015 Mustang GT more powerful than its rivals, the Chevrolet Camaro SS and Dodge Challenger.

Meanwhile, the 3.7-liter V6 engine was rated at 300 hp and 280 lb-ft (406 Nm) of torque. What’s interesting is that the V6 engine is actually less powerful than the version that powers the 2014MY Mustang, which delivers 305 hp.

Still, the new star on the 2015 Mustang is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that develops 310 hp and 320 lb-ft (433 Nm) of torque. Each engine can be ordered with a manual or automatic transmission in order to suit any individual driving style.

Ford’s new Mustang will go on sale later this year and will carry a starting price of $24,425. For this amount of money you get the model powered by the 3.7-liter V6 engine. If you want the new EcoBoost engine, you will pay $25,995.

The 2015 Mustang GT will cost you $32,925, while the Mustang GT 50 Year Limited Edition costs $46,996. For will offer plenty of options, such as the GT Performance Package ($2,495), Navigation ($795), floor mats ($85), Recaro sport seats wrapped in leather ($1,595) and the Enhanced Security Package ($395).

The 6-speed automatic transmission is offered as an option and costs $1,195 while the 3.55 limited slip differential costs $395. Wheel Stripe Package offered on the EcoBoost-powered model costs $895, while the EcoBoost Performance Package is available for $1,995.

The Premium Trim Package is available for $295 but if you want the 50th Anniversary Package this is priced at $1,595.

Offering world-class dynamics and ride quality, the all-new Ford Mustang is setting new benchmarks in terms of handling for the brand. As Pericak noted, the Mustang Boss 302 set the standards high for the pony car’s dynamics, and the latest vehicle was targeted to exceed those standards.

Ford gave the new Mustang all-new suspension systems for both the front and rear. Ford installed a new perimeter subframe at the front to stiffen the structure while lowering its weight, thereby making wheel control more predictable, resulting to better handling, steering and ride. The front employs new double-ball-joint MacPherson strut system that allows the use of larger, more powerful brakes. Ford is offering three available brake packages for the Mustang.

On the rear, Ford fitted an all-new integral-link independent rear suspension with geometry and springs, as well as dampers and bushings being especially modified and tuned to match the performance of the Mustang. By employing new aluminum rear knuckles, the unsprung mass of the new Mustang has been reduced, resulting to enhanced ride and handling.

Drivers of the new Ford Mustang could now enjoy enhanced levels of information, control and connectivity as they require, thanks to the wide array of innovative technologies installed in the latest pony car like the Intelligent Access with push-button start, SYNC and MyKey. Available technologies include Track Apps, the new Shaker Pro audio system and MyColor gauges.
