imageFirst Impressions - 2015 Ford Mustang GT Long-Term Road Test

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT is a little more grown up all around, from its quieter cabin and engine to its softer design, but that's OK. A little sophistication never hurt anyone.

    stop complaining about it being too quiet (i think this is at least the second post saying so) and remove the sound dampener from the intake honkus!

    You ought to check on the Sales from the front lines thread. About a week ago, some videos of exhaust conversions were posted. It is well within the ability of Edmunds to DIY it.

  • Interesting color. It doesn't even read as orange in the photos.

    I know the new Mustang has generated a lot of controversy (especially among those who are faithful to Ford's pony car), but it's hard to argue against how this thing looks. There's just enough retro in the styling to keep it faithful to its predecessors, but it's also thoroughly modern and looks fantastic. I saw one on the road for the first time about a month ago, and I was stunned at how great it looked. Hopefully, it looks just as good in a few years after Ford has sold a ton of them and they're all over the road.

    You may think it is crazy, but I am going to be debating between getting a Mustang GT or maybe a GT350 if possible vs a Corvette Stingray Z51 by the end of this year. Since you just finished your long term review of the Corvette and now have a Mustang GT, I would greatly appreciate any thoughts about the day to day livability and enjoyment of driving observations between these two cars. Thank you:)
  • Still think you should get the turbo Stang to LT test it alongside the V8 one. We already know how good the V8 motor is.

    You guys had matching Toybarus, and even Mitsubishis at the same time, so why not?

  • there is one in this color at the dealership i deliver to every day (they have had it since a week after launch and still haven't sold it wtf? )

    the color is VERY orange. this is not a good pic for color acuracy.

    I am pretty sure the consensus on the Recaros in the Focus ST were don't spend the money. Personally I wouldn't even if they were comfortable because I want the heaters and memory.

    I really hate the black wheels. I know you guys like them, but they just look like something from a development mule. I would rather have a nice silver or maybe a graphite that is darker, but didn't obscure the actual design of the wheels like they are in that photo.
  • It's kind of funny, our local Ford dealer got a few new Mustangs a month or two ago (first ones in the areas) and there were two in orange, and one in yellow. I've seen ones in charcoal grey as well, and all had black wheels. I hate black wheels, but the cars look good.
    I sure hope they improved the quality of the interiors and mechanics. My daughter's 2011 with 21k miles (V-6 convertible) already has a few squeaks and rattles, along with a clicking A/C vent (blend door?), which ridiculous for a car with that few miles and it scares me off of getting a new one to some degree.
