Ford Bucks Up Price Of All-New 2015 Mustang

Ford has priced its new 2015 Mustang and buyers are going to have to pony up almost 1,100 more bucks.The starting price of the new Mustang, loaded with improvements, will be $24,425 including delivery charges, an increase of $1,090 over the current $23,335 for the cheapest current version.

When the new Mustang goes on sale in the fall, the lowest priced model will come with a 3.7-liter V-6 producing more than 300 horsepower. Two other engine options will also be available.

Even though the new pony car will be more expensive, Ford spokesman Brian Cotter points out it is loaded with standard features that aren’t on the current Mustang. They include items like independent rear suspension, standard backup camera, steering wheel tilt and telescope and better interior materials throughout.

For the moment, Cotter says Ford isn’t releasing any other pricing information on the next Mustang — just the base price. To sell off current stocks of Mustang and make way for the new one, he says there are incentives of about $1,000 on the sporty car.

Ford also announced its first “appearance package” for the new Mustang, commemorating its 50th-anniversary edition.

The package will be available for turbocharged Mustang EcoBoost Premium and hot Mustang GT Premium models. The appearance package includes a chrome-accented grille, round 50 Years rear badge, 19-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, anniversary floor mats and unique seat and door-trim stitching, Ford said.

The package has some of the elements of the limited-edition 50th anniversary Mustang, which was announced at the New York Auto Show.
