It is quite exciting when the public gets the chance to take a peek at the order guide of a much-awaited vehicle. Such exciting moment happened recently, when the order guide of the 2015 Ford Mustang leaked and became accessible to the world. The order guide was given to U.S. dealers, and one such dealer was generous enough to take screenshots and post them online.
Autoweek gave the report and a link to the screen grabs, which showed everything but the Mustang’s base price. The website also displayed the PDF of the order guide.
Ford offers several paint options for the Mustang, which are more than enough for buyers. These include the following: competition orange, avalanche gray, triple yellow, deep impact blue, magnetic metallic, race red, black and oxford white. As the order guide shows, the 50th anniversary Mustang is available in two colors: Kona blue and Wimbledon white. Wimbledon white is the paint color of the first Mustang in 1964.
Options are also aplenty. For the base model GT, these are among the available options: manual Recaro leather seats, all weather floor mats, spoiler delete, engine block heater, reverse park assist, enhanced security package, smokers package and automatic transmission. As for the Premium Array GTs, other additional options include adaptive cruise control, navigation system and the 50th anniversary package.
Interested buyers of the latest Mustang will be delighted to find the prices of the options revealed in the screenshots. Automatic transmission and adaptive cruise control each can be had at $1,195. Navigation is priced at $795. Also, 20-inch machined aluminum wheels cost $1,295.
The leaked order guide also revealed that Ford offers EcoBoost and GT Performance packages of the 2015 Mustang. EcoBoost costs $1,995 while GT Performance costs $2,495. The 50th anniversary package is also available at $1,595.
One interesting thing that the leaked order guide has revealed is that the Limited Edition 50th anniversary Mustang model has its own distinct body code. While the EcoBoost is P8T and the GT is P8C, the limited edition car is P8R. Moreover, the order guide suggests there is a Shelby/SVT model which has the body code of P8J.
Ford recently announced that the latest Mustang GT will be equipped with an electronic line-lock function, which was designed to keep the front brakes engaged as the rear tires warm up.
In celebration of its 50th year, Ford’s iconic pony car revisited an old spot—the observation deck of the Empire State Building in New York. The original Mustang, which was revealed to the public for the first time at the 1964 World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows, Queens, was first placed on the Observatory in October 1965. Ford did the same thing it did half a century ago when it first completed the stunt: it had the convertible in triple yellow chopped into pieces, brought them up through the elevators and rebuilt the vehicle on the deck.
Just like the original Mustang, the buzzed-about 2015 model also made an appearance in film prior to its official debut. The latest version of the pony car made a cameo in the movie ‘Need for Speed.’
