The 2015 Ford Mustang is Officially on Sale Now - Starting at $24,425
If you have been eagerly waiting to run to your local Ford dealership to order an all-new 2015 Ford Mustang – today is your day. Ford Motor Company has officially opened the order banks for the next generation Mustang and while they haven’t announced full pricing nor have they announced the full specifications for the S550 Mustang, those who want to make absolute certain that they will get a next generation Mustang as soon as possible can take the first steps towards making that happen.
Typically, when a company opens the order banks for a particular model, the people who are likely to buy the vehicle in question know everything that they need to know but with the 2015 Ford Mustang – there are still plenty of mysteries. Ford Motor Company still hasn’t announced the actual power figures for any of the three available engines that will power the 2015 Mustang and for a performance car, that is generally one of the biggest selling points. Ford maintains the fact that the 3.7L V6 will have more than 300 horsepower and 270lb-ft of torque; the new 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder will have more than 305 horsepower and 300lb-ft of torque and the 5.0L V8 will have more than 420 horsepower and 390lb-ft of torque. For many prospective 2015 Mustang buyers, those “more than” figures are more than enough to make them lust after the next generation Mustang so I would expect that the Motor Company will get more than a few people to preorder the S550 Mustang without offering up any more solid information.
The other curious piece of information that seems odd with the 2015 Ford Mustang officially going on sale today is that the company hasn’t announced the full pricing. We have seen a collection of option prices through leaked dealership materials and with the statement announcing the opening of the order banks, Ford introduced the price for the 2015 Mustang fastback with the 3.7L V6 engine and (presumably) the 6-speed manual transmission of $24,425. The company hasn’t announced the pricing for the 2015 Mustang EcoBoost or Mustang GT, but based on the pricing of the base model V6 fastback, we can make some guesses as to how much the other models will cost.
The 2015 Ford Mustang V6 fastback starts at $24,425 and that is $1,090 more than the base 2014 Mustang V6 coupe. That is a fairly modest upcharge considering all of the standard features of the new base model S550 Mustang such as the new rear independent suspension and the high tech gadgetry inside and out. I would expect that the 2015 Mustang GT will have a slightly larger upcharge than the base V6 so when you consider the $32,035 base price of the 2014 Mustang GT with the 6-speed manual transmission – I would guess that the 2015 Mustang GT will start $33,495 with destination fees. That would be an upcharge of $1,460 for the GT package before any other goodies are added on and considering that you are getting, that really isn’t a bad price at all.
Finally, there is the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost. Since this is a brand new model and a brand new engine option, there is no basis for pricing comparison within the 2014 Mustang lineup. I expect that the Mustang’s EcoBoost option will be more expensive than the base V6, but it will cost less than the Mustang GT. Provided that my estimate of the Mustang GT pricing is fairly accurate, the Mustang EcoBoost will likely cost somewhere in the $32,000 range – similar to the pricing of the current Mustang GT.
So, if you want to get your hands one of the very first 2015 Ford Mustang fastbacks when they arrive later this year and you aren’t worried about the actual power output or the exact price (provided that you want an EcoBoost or GT model), head to your local Ford dealership today to place your order for the new S550 Mustang.
