Sub $45K Mu­usst­taan­ngg

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle News -

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.
