The starting price for the Ford Mustang is likely to be less than $45,000 when the car lands in Australia next year.
The all-new, 2015 ’Stang is already building a significant order bank down under and the likely price range is $45,000 to $60,000 depending on engine choice between the 2.3-litre EcoTech four and five-litre V8.
“We haven’t announced the Mustang pricing yet, but it’s an important halo performance car for Ford going forward. So stay tuned,” says Ford Australia president, Bob Graziano.
More and more details on the car are emerging from the USA, after the leaking of product codes and pricing on the internet.
One of the things generating lots of interest is a line locker that allows drag-style burnouts. It’s already fitted to the current Mustang in the USA but will be a first for a car sold in Australia. Although it is intended only for track use, it can be activated at any time.
That’s raised predictable objections from the police, even though Ford refuses to confirm its availability – most likely only on the V8.
“We haven’t released any details on the features or key specifications of the Australia- bound Mustangs and it’s a bit premature to discuss what features our cars may, or may not, have,” says Ford spokesman, Neil McDonald.
Production of the 2015 Mustang, for the US market, begins later this year.
