The release of the 2015 Ford Mustang marks the 50-year anniversary of one of America’s most iconic cars. Ford’s design team kept this in the forefront of their mind, and the result is a sleek, aggressive fastback that visually calls back to the golden age of muscle cars. The wide stance, low-slung body, and “shark-bite” grille all contribute to the simultaneously modern and retro appearance of the new Mustang, which Houston, Conroe, and Crosby residents can check out now at Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble, TX.
For the diehard Mustang enthusiasts around Houston, the GT Premium trim has an available 50 Years Appearance Package, which includes a 50 Years grille, 19-inch Luster Nickel aluminum wheels, leather-trimmed seats with stylish custom embossing and stitching, Axle Spin aluminum accents on the instrument panel and an aluminum scuff plate. There is simply no better way to exhibit your love for America’s favorite pony car. Even without the Appearance Package, a wide selection of striking colors – including Triple Yellow and Ruby Red multi-coat tones ripped straight from the pages of hot rod history – and ten different wheel designs allow plenty of choices to make your new Mustang fit your exact tastes and turn heads all over Houston.
Just as impressive as the new body style is the lineup of engines the 2015 Mustang has to offer. The standard 3.7L V6 strikes a great balance between power, handling, and fuel efficiency, offering 300 horsepower and 22 combined MPG. The GT’s lean and mean 5.0L V8 returns with a number of enhancements over previous generations, with 435 horsepower, 400 lb.-ft. of torque, and 19 combined MPG. The headlining addition to this year’s lineup of Mustangs, however, is the all-new 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 engine. While traditionalists may not like the idea of a four-cylinder power plant in a Mustang, a quick test drive will change your minds. This engine, the first EcoBoost ever offered in a Mustang, clocks a jaw-dropping 310 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque while offering stellar fuel economy at 25 combined MPG. The scrappy 2.3L EcoBoost actually generates more power at half the displacement than the 2005 Mustang GT’s 4.6L V8!
The interior of the new 2015 Mustang is just as impressive as the exterior, and that’s saying a lot. The large analog gauges alongside digital readouts in the dash cluster, three-spoke steering wheel, and bucket seats add to the classic look and feel of this outstanding vehicle. Selectable drive modes – normal, snow/wet, sport, and track – optimize your vehicle’s handling for any situation and are controlled with a toggle switch in the center stack, and all-new Track Apps analyze your Mustang’s performance and relay information to the 4.2-inch screen in the instrument cluster. These features and more enable you to get maximum enjoyment and performance out of your driving experience, and you’ll feel the difference the minute you leave the dealership.
When you test drive a 2015 Ford Mustang, you’ll find its crisp handling, exhilarating power and intuitive cockpit controls irresistible. Starting at $23,800 and sporting best-in-class fuel economy with the 2.3L EcoBoost, you can feel the muscle this instant classic has to offer without breaking your bank.
