The 2015 Ford Mustang was named one of three vehicle to compete for the 2015 North American Car of the Year Award. It was completely redesigned for the new year with innovative style and great new technology inside and out. We’ll find out if it has won America’s most prestigious automotive awards in Jan. 2015.
The Mustang will compete with the Hyundai Genesis and Volkswagen Golf for the NACYA award. A panel of automotive journalists review every new redesigned model for the new year and select their favorite redesigned model every year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that the Mustang made this year’s list. The 50th anniversary saw a full redesign to the classic American Sports Car, including an all-new fastback design, aviation-based cabin, new engines and more.
The new Mustang is the first vehicle to offer four, six and eight cylinder engines that all produce at least 300 horsepower. The Mustang also features a new EcoBoost engine that reaches up to 32 MPG.
The Mustang also carves the curves with a new rear-suspension system fully modified for high-performance application. The Mustang is the smartest sports car of all-time, including new track apps that record lap times and braking performance. There is also an electronic line-lock system that keeps the front brakes locked while the Mustang is in gear.
A rearview camera comes standard, with options available for adaptive cruise control and rain sensing wipers. Don’t forget about the available Bluetooth, navigation, heated and cooled sets and more.
