The Ford team had their hands full when they were challenged to improve every aspect of the just-released 6th generation 2015 Mustang.  The challenge was to deliver the best driving, best looking, safest, most comfortable, and highest level of finish Mustang to date–and also the most technologically advanced, all while retaining the soul and DNA of the iconic brand.  The 2015 is the first Mustang that is available worldwide.  While the standard 300 HP V6 and a 435 HP 5.0 are available, most of the buzz will be around the 310 HP 2.3 liter, 4CYL EcoBoost engine which delivers a continuous power band without any turbo lag, all the while achieving 31 MPG HWY and 22 City! The EcoBoost COUPE Premium model can be ordered with Recaro leather seats and a performance package which includes an extensive list of appearance, technology and performance enhancements.  So many options skews the price range from $23,600 to $50K.
