Mustang 1 cumberland ford

Ford Mustang is all set to arrive in the local showrooms across Australia by the end of 2015. Ford Mustang’s base model begins around $45,000 which is relatively less than what it used to be. When compared to Ford Mustang’s 2001 model which was priced around $85,000 for a coupe and $89,000 for a convertible, the price of the latest 2015 Ford Mustang is just a little over than its half price. Nonetheless, when compared to what the US customers pay; Australians will be paying around $20,000 more for the same car. However, car buffs here do not mind it at all as even before its launch, 2000 cars are already booked and that’s something remarkable, says Ford Australia.

Since late 2013, the Blue Oval brand has been creating quite a buzz when it was confirmed that Ford Australia would be bringing in the new model for the first time in years. As of December 2014, Ford Australia has received around 600 bookings; however, the curiosity seems to have increased when the pricing for Ford Mustang was declared during March 2015.

“The Eco-Boost 4-cylinder fastback version which is turbo-powered will be priced around $45,000 and on-road costs extra”, this is for the base model. The price would be around $55,000 for the V8 version. At an added cost of around $7500, convertible versions will be accessible.

Ford Mustang’s variant – GT Fastback automatic that comes with 5.0-litre V8 engine is catching up much attention and is in high demand than the entry, base model of Ford’s latest pony car. As per Ford, roughly around 42% of all orders received are for this particular variant. However, Ford is anticipating that shift will happen gradually and that Eco-Boost variant will not only make for better sales but also will maintain sales in the long run compared to most performance cars.

 

What’s special this time around is the fact that even before the pricing or specifications were announced for the car, some of the customers had even made their bookings. David Blackwood, the chief from Bayford Group Victoria dealership says that he has never seen such a trend before.

Across the Mustang models, the performance pack will remain standard, stated Ford. This performance pack will include unique chassis tuning, an upsized rear sway bar on the fastback, heavy duty front springs, and to safeguard the suspension strut towers to the bulkhead – it comes with “K Brace” under the bonnet. A rear limited-slip differential is fitted in all variants.
As far as the colour choices are concerned, racing red colour is the most widely preferred choice by Australian customers, which is very closely followed by pure black and magnetic.

As per Ford, “A number of Mustang fans along with members of the different state based Mustang clubs have placed more than one order comprising of different variants of the prominent car, and total 20 orders have been placed by a recognised sports car rental company”.
