2015 Ford Mustang on sale in Australia from $44,990

March 3, 2015

Ford Australia has announced surprisingly low prices for the 2015 Ford Mustang, which will arrive locally a bit later this year.

2015 Ford Mustang

Six variants will go on sale, including four coupe Fastback variants and two convertibles. They consist of a manual and auto version of the 2.3-litre turbo four-cylinder Fastback, and a manual and auto version of the GT 5.0-litre V8 Fastback, as well as automatic versions of both engine options for the convertible.

The 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine produces 233kW of power and 432Nm of torque. All 2.3 variants come with a limited-slip differential as standard, as well as 19-inch alloy wheels, a stainless steel dual exhaust, HID headlights and LED taillights, auto wipers, dual-zone climate and sat-nav all as standard. The 2.3 also gets 352mm front and 330mm rear sports brakes.

Going for the GT 5.0 V8 gets you a 303kW engine producing 525Nm. It comes with bigger Brembo brakes (380mm front), staggered 19-inch alloy wheels measuring 9.5 inches width on the back, and all of the standard features that the 2.3 comes with, including a six-way power driver’s seat, SYNC2, a rear-view camera, and a nine-speaker stereo with a high-res 8.0-inch touch-screen.

So far Ford Australia says it already holds 1200 orders for the Fastback and convertible, while more than 15,000 fans have expressed interest and intend to buy. It will be very interesting to see just how popular the iconic sports car goes in Australia, especially at these relatively low prices. See below for the price list (excluding on-road costs):

    Will the new mustangs come with a performance pack upgrade option?

    • Billy

      I think the Performance Pack comes standard on our Mustangs. Because in the U.S. the bigger Brembo’s and staggered 19″ wheels are part of their Performance Pack. So I assume we would get the rest, which I think is strut brace and revised stiffer dampers.

      The other option I would like to see is the leather Recaro’s they can option in the U.S.

      Or even better. I’m hoping that Ford US wake up to themselves and offer the Shleby GT350. They can keep the R version, but I want the 350GT with that screaming flat crank 5.2L 500HP V8 that screams to over 8,000rpm. Now I would pay extra for that car, even if it was just a special order.
