Pricing for the 2015 Mustang hasn't been officially confirmed yet, but industry insiders expect the base model to come in just shy of $25k with a V6 and manual transmission. But as with all things related to the relaunched Mustang at this point, details remain shrouded in mystery. CJ Pony Parts has been America's Mustang experts for over 25 years — as we get closer to the 2015's official launch, we'll have more details for you, so keep checking our website and blog!
What You'll Get for Your Money
It should be noted that, as of this fall, none of the details about 2015 Mustang pricing, options or specs have been confirmed by Ford. The 2015's official launch is expected to be in April, though even that isn't certain, and much can still change between now and then. That being said, here are our best guesses as to what will be available when the sixth gen Mustang finally drops:
- Engine: Rumor has it the 2015 Mustang will have three engine options: The 5.0L Coyote V8, currently found on the Mustang GT, is likely to remain, as is the base 3.8L V6. Positioned between these two options in terms of price will be a 2.4L turbocharged direct injection four cylinder. The four cylinder — the first on a Mustang since 1993 — is rumored to pack a powerful 310 hp while delivering fuel economy between 22 and 32 mpg (city/highway).
- Transmission: Like the current model, the new Mustang will likely debut with a six speed manual gearbox, with automatic available as an option. However, those who are willing to wait a year or two are in for something exciting — a rumored 10 speed auto, jointly developed by Ford and GM, has been slated for a 2016 or 2017 introduction.
- Suspension: One thing that has been all but confirmed at this point is that 2014 will finally see the Mustang make the leap to an independent rear suspension. Competing vehicles like Dodge's Challenger and GM's Camaro all currently feature an IRS, so the addition makes sense. Upgrading to an IRS will not only improve handling and performance, but it will free up extra space in the rear seat and cargo areas.
- Dimensions: Sometimes, less is more — in the 2015 Mustang's case, a curb weight 400 lbs lighter than the 2014 model means serious performance gains! Expect the 2015 to be shorter, narrower and incorporate more high-tech materials, which could impact the new Mustang's price.
2014 is shaping up to be a big year for Mustang drivers — keep checking the CJ Pony Parts blog for the latest updates.
