Ford Motor Co. has some exciting developments that have arrived or will be arriving soon, and the 2015 Ford Mustang is at the head of the class at Friendly Ford, 660 N. Decatur Blvd.
The Mustang is celebrating 50 years in production with a new model that’s sporty, stylish and powerful. The Mustang’s redesign is so popular that it has attracted 70-year-olds who remember the first Mustang and 20-somethings who want to experience the vehicle’s historic feel.
With a lineup including the V-6 Fastback, EcoBoost Fastback, EcoBoost Premium Fastback, GT Fastback and the GT Premium Fastback, Ford has emerged with solid models. Ford engines include the 2.3L 4 cylinder twin scroll turbo, 3.7L Ti-VCT V-6, and the 5.0 liter Ti-VCT V-8.
Friendly Ford Sales Manager Taylor Warf, who earlier bought a 2013 Ford Mustang 3.7 Liter V-6, recently traded for a 2015 Mustang 2.3 liter EcoBoost Premium with the EcoBoost performance package.
“The entire suspension is completely redesigned on the new Mustang,” said Warf, a 3½-year employee with the dealership.
“You can really feel the difference in the suspension and the handling of the new Mustang.
“I now have more horsepower torque than the V-6 and get better fuel economy. I didn’t have to sacrifice performance for fuel economy with my new car. Fuel economy is important to me because I drive 40 miles round-trip to work and back each day. I get 27 miles to the gallon city and highway combined. That’s huge for me.”
Sales consultant Randy Block said a customer drove from Lake Havasu City, Ariz., to buy a 2015 2.3 liter performance package Fastback.
The new Mustang’s amenities include: Intelligent Access with push-button start; rearview camera; hands-free Bluetooth; individual tire pressure monitoring system; and track apps that give a Christmas tree-countdown for quarter-mile and half-mile times.
Heated and cooled seats are also available.
