Ford teased everyone with the next generation of the Mustang, releasing just a little detail at a time in some sort of an automotive striptease. Now the Blue Oval is telling everyone just how much the new pony car will set them back once it arrives. So before you get all hot and bothered about the 2015 Ford Mustang, read on to see how much pony goodness you can practically afford.
The base model will have a base price of $24,425. That provides buyers with HID headlights, a steering wheel wrapped in leather, a backup camera, keyless entry and a push-button ignition. The base model is powered by a naturally-aspirated V6 engine. The car also comes with the wonderfully frustrating SYNC infotainment system and a lovely, small 4.2-inch screen.
For the $1,090 price increase versus the base 2014 model, owners will enjoy a (finally) modern independent rear suspension and a completely new chassis that promises further handling improvements. Among the announced optional equipment for V6 models is an 8-inch touchscreen that drivers can actually see and that also includes navigation. Buyers can also add adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring if they are safety-minded. Those who just can’t be bothered with moving around a stick and pushing a pedal can have an automatic transmission with paddle shifters added to the car. Another option will be selectable drive modes.
Also announced is a 50 Years appearance options package, but it will only be available on GT and EcoBoost models, not on V6s. That package, which comes with chrome trim around the grille, special badges and wheels, unique interior stitching, and custom floor mats, will cost $1,595.
