Order books officially open for the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang

Ford has officially opened the order books for the all-new 2015 Mustang, the first time that the legendary muscle car has ever gone on sale in the UK.

Priced between £28,995 and £38,495, the new Mustang is available to order now and first deliveries are expected to arrive in the UK in the late autumn.

Roelant de Waard, Ford Europe’s vice president for marketing, sales and service, said: “There’s never been a better time to introduce this iconic car across Europe.

“All-new Ford Mustang is the most modern, technologically advanced and forward-looking Mustang in the amazing history of the marque.”

All-new design

With an all-new design that combines elements from the Mustang’s 50-year history, the latest version of Ford’s greatest performance car is available as either a fastback coupe or convertible.

Standard kit across the range includes 19-inch wheels and performance brakes, plus automatic xenon headlights, full LED taillights and a rear diffuser to streamline airflow.

On the inside, the Mustang comes with dual-zone climate control as standard, plus a nine-speaker sound system and a SYNC 2 infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen and voice control.

Additional options include climate control seats which heat and cool on demand, plus rear parking sensors and exclusive Lustre Nickel alloy wheels. Ten exterior colours are available, including model-exclusive Competition Orange and Triple Yellow.

EcoBoost or V8?

Power comes courtesy of a choice of two powerful engines, including a hotter version of Ford’s award-winning EcoBoost petrol engine, and a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

Despite its eco-friendly name, the 2.3-litre EcoBoost will generate a healthy Mustang-worthy 310bhp with 433Nm of torque, offering plenty of grunt where it’s needed most.

No Mustang would be complete without a traditional V8 option, however, and a massive 5.0-litre V8 engine is also available, with output figures of a tyre-shredding 412bhp with 542Nm of torque.

Ford has also launched an online configurator on its website, which will allow Mustang buyers to personally create their own cars, tweak specifications and review the prices.

Later this week, the marque will also release a virtual reality smartphone app for Apple and Android devices which will allow customers to see exactly how their car will look in the real world.

Buyers can listen to realistic engine sounds and also select bodystyles, colours and wheel options, and can then use their device’s camera to place the virtual model in their driveways and streets.

The latest version of Ford’s legendary Mustang is available to order now, priced from £28,995 for the fastback coupe and £32,995 for the convertible.
