All-New Ford Mustang Pricing

Ford Australia has announced sharp pricing for the all-new Ford Mustang Fastback and Convertible.

The all-new Mustang arrives later this year with a recommended Manufacturers’ List Price starting at $44,990 for the six-speed Getrag manual transmission Fastback, which features a high performance 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine. A six-speed automatic is a $2,500 option.

The range topper is the six-speed automatic GT 5.0-litre V8 Convertible, which has an MLP of $63,990.

“With such sharp pricing, we’re signaling that there’s a new Ford performance car coming and we intend to grab our rightful share of enthusiasts who value style, technology, performance and the history that the Mustang name brings,” said Graeme Whickman, Vice President Marketing, Sales and Service. “It’s a technologically advanced car without forgetting the heritage that has inspired Ford customers for generations.

Ford already holds around 1,200 orders for the Mustang Fastback and Convertible. More than 15,000 fans and intending buyers have also requested more information about the car via the Ford website.

Customers will initially be able to option their Mustang I4 and GT Fastback with OTT racing stripes and black painted roof, 19-inch Premium Wheels with Lustre Nickel finish on the GT and prestige paint.

The clean-sheet design of both Ford Mustang Fastback and Convertible evokes the essential character of the vehicle, retaining key design elements of the classic Mustangs recognisable to car fans everywhere, including the long sculpted hood and short rear deck, with a contemporary execution.

Several key design features define the new Ford Mustang, including:

• A low roof height and wide stance

• Sleek profile enabled by steeply sloped windscreen and rear glass

• Three-dimensional, tri-bar tail-lamps

• Contemporary execution of the iconic car’s signature trapezoidal grille and shark-bite front fascia

Ford Mustang convertible drivers will appreciate the standard multilayer insulated cloth top that gives the car an upscale appearance and a quiet cabin. The top has a sleek profile when folded for open-air motoring.

Large, clear instrumentation puts vehicle information right in front of the driver in the roomy cabin with an aviation-inspired cockpit, while ergonomic and tactile switches and knobs provide control. The vehicle’s width and new rear suspension contribute to improved shoulder and hip room for passengers and a usefully shaped bootspace that can accommodate two golf bags.

The new Ford Mustang features all-new front and rear suspensions. At the front, a new perimeter sub-frame helps to stiffen the front structure while reducing mass, providing a strong foundation for more predictable wheel control that benefits handling, steering and ride.

The new double ball-joint front MacPherson strut system also enables the use of large, powerful brakes. Both 2.3-litre EcoBoost and V8-powered GT Mustang models will feature performance brake packages behind standard 19-inch wheels.

At the rear is an all-new integral-link independent rear suspension. The geometry, springs, dampers and bushings all have been specifically modified and tuned for this high-performance application. New aluminium rear knuckles help reduce unsprung mass for improved ride and handling.

The new Mustang features a significant number of innovative technologies providing drivers with enhanced information, control, and connectivity when they want it.

Like other Fords, the Mustang will feature high levels of connectivity via Ford’s SYNC2 system. Ford’s advanced infotainment system features a high-resolution, 8-inch colour touch screen and advanced voice control for easier access to audio, navigation, climate control and compatible mobile phones.
