You see the silhouette clear as day. You grin to yourself. As you approach, you admire she sits low to the ground, with an extra wide stance, on a mid-size wheel base. The black accents along the wheels, windows, mirrors, lower body kit, and honeycomb grill make the electric paint even more vibrant that you recall. You place your hand on the door handle and hear the click, as the door automatically unlocks, knowing you’re the rightful driver of this impressive ride.
As you slide into the racecar-style seat and fasten your seatbelt, you know you’re about to go for the ride of your life; the soft leather holding on to you tightly. As you place your feet on the pedals and grip the steering wheel your heart skips a beat in anticipation of what’s to come. Then, you reach over and touch the “Push-Start Button”, the dashboard lights up in mesmerizing blue lights, and your favourite song from your iTunes power playlist automatically starts to play on the 12-speaker Bluetooth sound system. You’re in heaven. You’re heart is pounding. You rev the engine, slide the transmission into gear, and then pull your foot off the clutch… You’re off!
It was over 50 years ago that the first Ford Mustang rolled off the line. Throughout the decades the Ford Mustang has held a special place in American culture. Today, Ford continues to innovate, improving on the technology and performance of the popular muscle sports car, all while maintaining the classic heritage its become so well known for.
The 2015 Ford Mustang has been completely redesigned, from the ground up. It has been built for power, speed, and the ultimate driving performance.
The exterior is reminiscent of the classic Mustang design, with its long front end, low roofline, steep rear window, and short rear deck. The lines and curves along the body are both form and function, allowing the Mustang to leverage the airflow patters to maximize fuel efficiency, while showing off its brute strength, like a sprinter on a race track.
Under the hood, there’s a powerful 5.0-litre V8 engine pumping out more than 420 horsepower and 396 lbs-ft of torque. When you put your foot on the gas, the Ford Mustang is going to move fast, without hesitation, so hold on tight! The 2015 Ford Mustang also comes in a new, fuel-efficient 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine.
If you’re going to drive a muscle car a standard transmission is the only way to go! The manual gearbox now offers steering wheel mounted paddles, giving the driver more options and control.
“We crafted this car with the goal of creating a contemporary interpretation of Mustang – an American automotive icon that symbolizes optimism and freedom,” said Jim Farley, executive vice president of Ford global marketing, sales and service and Lincoln.
The feeling of freedom, control, and confidence behind the wheel is exactly what drivers can expect from the 2015 Ford Mustang.
