$24,425 isn't a bad price for a base 2015 V6 Mustang. That's a lot of ponies, and a helluva lot of fun for $24K.

The 2015 Mustang has been re-designed from the wheels up, and retains nothing from the previous generation, except that vaguely catfish-like lip on the grill (does anyone else see that? It's like looking down the gullet of a Wels Catfish).

On the other end of the spectrum, the price of a limited edition 2015 50th Anniversary Oxford While Mustang ($46,995) might scare some, but remember that there are only going to be 1,964 of the Mustangs--that’s essentially a fully loaded GT--produced. The LE 50th cars are also the only 2015 Mustangs being offered with an automatic transmission.

Under the Hood

5.0-liter V8. Ford

The base V6 Mustang is rocking the same engine as the 2014 Mustang V6. And that's not a bad thing. It's a 3.7-liter V-6 engine generating 305 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 280 lb.-ft. of torque (my '96 V6 Mustang only has 150 pony power).

The Ford ECOBOOST engine is a bit of a different beast. The new 2.3-liter EcoBoost, producing more than 305 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque and with projected class-leading fuel efficiency. So it sounds like a V6 that gets better gas mileage.

And for those that need a little more, there's the upgraded 5.0-liter V8, generating more than 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. Zoom, indeed.

Can I Put The Top Down?


Interestingly, no.

For a car that was supposedly "designed to be a convertible," there are no Mustang convertibles for sale... as of right now. There will be, just not right now.

Also noticably missing from Ford's list are an SVT Cobra, and a GT350/500. I'm certain we'll see some variation of those, but as of right now they are a no show.

50 Years of Pony Power

It isn't quite the $2,000 you would have paid for a Mustang in 1964, but times they are a changin'. Are you planning on ordering a new Pony, or waiting to see what else Ford offers during the 50th anniversary year?

Me? I'm gonna drop the top in my 1996 Mustang V6 Convertible and go for a cruise. Wanna go?
