Default 2015 Ford Mustang Aust Details.

Being a big Ford Mustang fan, its great to see us Aussies will finally have a chance to purchase one later this year..



Ive been keeping my eye out for details etc and its Great to see Ford Aust has finally released Details and Pricing on the Upcoming Mustang..



The entry-level model will be offered with a turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, and will be priced from $44,990 plus on-road costs for the six-speed manual Fastback, $47,490 for the six-speed auto Fastback, and $53,990 for the auto Convertible. Autos have paddle shifters, too.



The 2.3-litre versions have 233kW of power and 432Nm of torque, and there’s a long list of standard equipment including dual-zone climate control, 8.0-inch SYNC2 media touchscreen with satellite navigation, smart key with push-button start, auto lights and wipers, leather trim, heated and cooled front seats, electric driver’s seat adjustment, and 19-inch alloys (9.0 inches in diameter).



The flagship 5.0-litre V8-powered variants are priced from $54,990 for the manual Fastback, $57,490 for the auto hard-top, and $63,990 for the auto Convertible version.



That engine produces 303kW/525Nm, and GT versions gain 19-inch alloys (9.0 inches in diameter at the front, 9.5 inches at the rear) painted in “Ebony Black”. It also gets bigger brakes with Brembo calipers.

Saw this. Anyone else pick up on the error in the article, describing the 'diameter' of the wheels?


Actually look like a decent car. Looking forward to seeing them in the flesh!

It's a bit pot calling the kettle black to critisise an interior of another car on a WRX forum.

The main problem with the Mustangs will be the waiting list and the fact they'll be so common

Still can't get past the 4 banger option in a traditional muscle car. I'm sure it goes OK, but it just doesn't belong there.
