The 2015 Ford Mustang GT Fastback Offers the Most Bang for the Buck

Yesterday we took a close look at the pricing and options for the 2015 Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback and today, we price out the more affordable non-Premium GT Fastback, a model that packs all of the power and none of the frills so for those looking to go fast on a budget – this is your car.

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT Fastback is offered in two basic forms: the Premium 400A package and the non-Premium 300A package. The Premium package includes a bunch of high tech standard features like the high end sound system and leather seats, but it also adds a bunch of weight and it adds at least $4,000 to the price so for someone who truly doesn’t care about gadgets that don’t improve performance – the 2015 Mustang GT Fastback (300A) is your best choice.

Far Less Options, No Less Performance
When you use the Ford website to build a 2015 Ford Mustang GT Fastback, you do not get the option to pick from any available popular equipment groups like you do with the GT Premium. The base GT Fastback with the manual transmission starts at $32,100 while the automatic transmission bumps the price up to $33,295. After choosing your transmission, you are whisked away to the option screen where you begin by picking your exterior color. Like the GT Premium, there are ten exterior paint choices - Guard, Triple Yellow, Magnetic, Deep Impact Blue, Ruby Red, Competition Orange, Race Red, Ingot Silver, Oxford White and Black – with Triple Yellow adding $495 to the price while Ruby Red adds $395. The other 8 colors are available free of charge and as was the case when I built my ideal GT Premium Fastback, I would be all over Competition Orange for the standard price.

Does the premium 401A auto fast back allow you to order the gauge package, the dealer order book has it listed as an option but no price.
