Ford is officially selling its all-new 2015 Mustang, following today's release that the automaker has begun accepting orders for the fastback model. Accompanying the announcement came the long-awaited pricing for the entry level model, fitted with the 3.7-liter V6, which will start at $24,425 (*including destination and delivery).

As previously announced, there will be three available powerplants when the vehicle is launched. All are offered with a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters (horsepower and torque figures have not been finalized):
  • Naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6, producing more than 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.
  • Turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder, producing more than 305 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque.
  • Naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8, producing more than 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque.
The base price of the 2014 Mustang is $23,335 (including destination and delivery), which means the 2015 model arrives with a $1,090 premium over the outgoing model - an increase justified by an all-new platform with the new independent rear suspension. Other new standard features include HID headlamps, rear view camera system, keyless entry and SYNC connectivity with a 4.2-inch color display.

According to the press release, the Mustang will roll into North American showrooms this fall.

* Upgraded 3.7-liter V6, producing more than 300 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque

In addition to a sleek new design and dramatically improved cabin, each 2015 Mustang adds an array of new standard features:

* Eight airbags including front, knee and side-impact protection for driver and front passenger
* Individual tire pressure monitor readouts for each wheel
* Rear view camera system
* High-intensity discharge headlamps with signature lighting
* Illuminated, locking glove box

* Intelligent access, enabling the driver to enter without touching the key fob

The ample standard equipment list can be further augmented with the availability of advanced technology features such as:

* Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert upgraded with Doppler-effect radar sensors to provide both improved sensitivity at longer distances and better resistance to false alerts
* Adaptive cruise control and collision warning for the first time
* Track Apps provide a variety of on-track performance measurements for drivers
* Selectable drive modes feature lets the driver quickly adjust steering, throttle response, shift control and stability control settings by toggling between normal, snow-wet, sport and track modes
* Mustang GT easy to use electronic line lock and a launch control system that manages engine speed and brakes, giving drivers maximum and consistent acceleration at the track

Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

A 50 Years appearance package is available for Mustang EcoBoost Premium and Mustang GT Premium models. The appearance package includes a chrome-accented grille, round 50 Years rear badge, 19x8.5-inch alloy wheels with 255/40R19 all-season tires, anniversary floor mats and unique seat and door-trim stitching.

      I really need to see this car in person. The looks have not won me over yet. Most people that have seen it say it is one of those cars that just does not photograph well and is way better up close. I thought the Lincoln MKZ was so odd looking until I saw it in person, and now I consider it quite striking. Hoping the new Stang is better in the metal. A 5% price bump seems a bit steep but it will really come down to an apples to apples comparison on what the standard content is between 2014 and 2015 models.

        Yeah, I think the MKZ looks great except for the Lincoln "Baleen" grill which really is just too ugly for the brand to carry on with. Honestly, I think the overbearing grill is probably the only detail that's preventing their otherwise great cars from really catching the eye of shoppers. As for the Mustang, yes, the proportions are very strange in photographs, on flat paper the nose looks to be about 2 sizes too big. I thought that about the previous mustang too which we all know looked quite good in person.

        Yes, it is much better in person. Like you, I did not like it much in photos, but seeing it at the local auto show back in March made me like it much more. It really does present itself better in the flesh. I still don't like the hood line forward of the front wheel, but it's a small quibble. It's actually quite attractive in person.

      How the heck is Ford going to convince people to buy the V6 with numbers like that!?

        @mikemaj82
        They don't want you to buy the V6. They want to upsell you into the Ecoboost 4 or V8. The V6 is to keep the advertised price low so they can get you on the lot, then upsell.

      So for over a grand more you get a cat that is horribly styled and pureed by a puny V6 or a gas guzzling 4 banger that will nut get the mileage Ford will advertise. What a rip. Once again, Ford makes the last generation far more desirable than the new one. Thank God big Al is leaving. He has been a cancer on this company

        A "cat" that is "pureed" and will "nut"? You obviously aren't old enough to drive, since you can't even spell. Go ask mom to drive you to the library so you can study.

      Having owned the last gen Mustang and numerous before, I would take the new Camaro or Challenger over this. Too many changes. It is looking like it was designed in Japan.

        It looks better than any mustang since 04, has a real rear suspension, nicer interior, and the base gt out performs the previous Gen 302 boss Leguna Seca.... What is not to like?

        "Design in Japan" is an unintentional compliment. Saw the new Mustang at the last Autoshow, and love it... even though the interior is still as crude as ever.

          I've often wondered what people that put down the interiors are actually expecting? Audi-levels of design and refinement? Maybach maybe? I know that a decade ago, Ford's materials were poor, etc, but they've addressed those concerns a couple of times over now. Let's not loose sight of the fact that this is performance car with a very reasonable entry level price point.

          EXP Jawa, The ones who complain about interiors are impossible to please or reason with. Most of the time, they're either haters/fanboys of another brand or segment. Others are just out of touch, and have unrealistic expectations, ie the folks who want a $25k sports car with an interior that makes Rolls Royce blush.

      Nearly 25k for a base Mustang? Lol no thank you. Thats what 4k more than the current base model?! Good thing I do not find this generation attractive!

        • 7 Months Ago
        @Jesus!
        ...Considering the BRZ is the same price and somehow is a performance bargain with just 200hp...I'd say that pricing is more than fair. You have to remember, the new Mustang is actually modern in drivetrain and suspension. I think we'll find that even the less expensive models more than are up to par with the other 300hp coupes on the market.

        @Jesus!
        Current base: $22,510. This base: $24,425. 24,425-22,510 = $1,915. So, where is this $4,000 number you're coming up with?
          m_2012
          • 7 Months Ago
          @The_Zachalope
          So your lack of reading and instead just thinking what the price is makes your argument anymore valid? Again, its $24.4K with destination and delivery, the old car was $22.5K. So its still $1900 no matter what you "think" it is. This is very reasonable given the improvement and the competition.
          mumbojumbo
          • 7 Months Ago
          @The_Zachalope
          @Zachalope: Actually the article points out the price is AFTER destination cost. Current one AFTER destination cost is only about $1100 less comparing apples to apples, not $1900. That $1100 increase adds an IRS, keyless start, rearview camera, and SYNC as added standard equipment vs current one.

          I thought the base was 21k. The new one is close to 25k. I said like 4k. Apparently your comprehension skills are poor.
        • 6 Months Ago
        @Jesus!
        Seeing as how a Basic V6 Mustang now, runs anywhere from $22K-$23K, $25K isn't that big of a mark up. Even though that is $2000-$3000 mark up. That's NOTHING compared to what Chevy, Dodge, Toyota, etc. has done!

        Even though I OWN a 2014 Fusion, I must disagree. Don't get me wrong, Fusions are FANTASTIC cars. However, the Mustangs are NOTHING like them! These two cars, are Night and Day, when placed side by side. But they are both equally GREAT cars!
