The much-anticipated 2015 Ford Mustang has received a rave review from the popular automotive website AutoBlog. On their first road test with the American Muscle Car, the website approves everything about the new Pony Car.
Here’s their overall impression: “This new car shames the old, redefines the model and gallops far ahead of anything else in the segment.”
The 2015 Ford Mustang is perhaps the most highly anticipated vehicle to arrive at dealerships in a long time. Arriving in Fall 2014, the Mustang is unlike anything you’ve seen before, with brand new styling, new engines, and a brand new feel. As AutoBlog says:
“It’s not a new chapter in Mustang history, it’s a new book.”
The 2015 Ford Mustang features an all-new trapezoid grille, thin swooping headlights, and the return of fastback design with a sleek profile and sloped windshield and rear glass. AutoBlog said they really liked the exterior of the car, noting that it’s muscle from every angle.
The new Mustang features an aviation-based cockpit. A large instrument panel puts the information right in front of the passenger, along with a roomier cabin. Ford has improved the ergonomics to make switches and knobs easier to use than ever. Everyone will also enjoy more hip and leg room.
As the interior goes, AutoBlog calls it a major improvement. They like the luxury touches, including blind spot warning, rear view camera and adaptive cruise control available.
As driving impressions go, AutoBlog notes the new small-diameter steering wheel gets the driver’s hands into a nicer position.
But most of AutoBlog’s thoughts were based on performance. The AutoBlog crew tested both a V6 and V8 version. Driving on a canyon road, Autoblog said it liked the throttle response and engine in the manual transmission on the V8 engine.
In the V6 engine on the same roads, Autoblog enjoyed the grip on the turns. In all models, AutoBlog loves the suspension. As they say:
“Short of saying that it will eradicate lupus, it’s hard to overstate how much the double-ball joint MacPherson struts in front and the multi-link rear suspension mean to the experience. You don’t have to wait for the chassis to settle down before locking into a turn. You don’t need to worry about going over into the oncoming lane or over the edge of a cliff when you hit a hole mid-turn, or let off the gas over some rumblies while the car skips around like a 2×4 that fell out the back of a pickup truck.”
As more Mustangs roll off the floor, we’re excited to finally see it for ourselves. Read what we’ve learned so far, and contact us today to learn even more about the newest iconic pony car.
