THE Ford Mustang will start at $44,990 when it goes on sale in Australia later this year. That puts it within reach of Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo and Holden Commodore SS shoppers, which are both listed at $42,990 before on-road-costs.

The $45K entry price will have the entry-level coupe powered by a 233kW 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbo with a Getrag six-speed manual parked in your garage. A six-speed automatic is a $2500 option.

For many Mustang buyers, though, there will only be one engine to have: the 324kW 5.0-litre V8. Powering the GT models, the V8 Mustang starts at $54,990 for the manual with the automatic adding $2500, making it $57,490. That, too, knocks on the door of the admittedly more powerful Falcon XR8, with its supercharged 5.0-litre producing 335kW, and the Holden Commodore SS-V Redline, with both Aussie-built cars priced at $54,690.

The Mustang Coupe will arrive in local showrooms at the same time as the Convertible, which is pared back to automatic models only. The 2.3-litre starts at $53,990 with the GT V8 $63,990.

That four-cylinder ‘EcoBoost’ engine is expected to make up around 40 per cent of Mustang sales.
While purists may sneeze at four-pot Mustang, it’s the same engine powering the recently unveiled almighty Ford Focus RS hatch where only adoration’s been laid on.

The long-stroke four-cylinder produces 233kW and a strong 454Nm of torque for the Mustang, and while that’s a cry from the flagship V8’s 324kW/542Nm, it offers an official 9.4L/100km against the 5.0-litre’s 12.4L/100km.

While Mustang is a certainty for Australia, with equipment and further details revealed closer to the car’s as-yet undisclosed on-sale date, speculation and rumour still surrounds whether arch-nemesis Holden will import the Mustang’s sparring partner, the Chevrolet Camaro, once Australian manufacturing ceases.

Regardless, Ford has the jump on Holden by offering both its home-grown Aussie performance cars alongside the Mustang in showrooms for, dare we use Ford’s Weasel Words, ‘transition’ to a full-importer.

Yes I am led to believe Australia-market Mustangs (the GT anyway) come 'standard' with the Performance Pack.

The rumours said 50 and 70 with full spec so the rumour was right with the 50 part but a reasonable way out with the 70 unless spec has been pulled with our dollar and so on.

Yeah that is nice too.

You know if I were in the market I don't think I would get the V8.

The 4 gets all the features of the eight and the looks and you save a fair bit. The there is the issue with the power of the eight. I wonder what the performance difference will be for our models.

4Vman
3rd March 2015, 09:05 PM
Will be interesting, 21kw is a fair drop

HSE2
3rd March 2015, 09:08 PM
And ecoboost is the same as in the US yes?

I think if this were me buying the drop in power for the V8 would be a must drive first situation.

FTe217
3rd March 2015, 09:09 PM
OH ok Meteorite - must be a new US colour :p as I said classy.

Your right Ian the ecoboost is great value but famous last words going the 4 - just wonder if you could get used to the lack of proper sound, I mean the Damo's of the world are fine but us Men its a matter of principle.

HSE2
3rd March 2015, 09:13 PM
Yes there is that, and the idea that the Stang must be a V8 but hey times they are a changing. I keep coming back to if its ok for the ford GT to be a six, maybe dynamically the 4 has the edge.

If that spec sheet is right, if our market is feature driven, there are no extra gadgets in the V8.

You get the looks but yes not the sound. Then again not everyone likes the coyote v8 sound.

I didn't see auto up windows mentioned?

Norm will change his mind just for the heated and cooled seats.

3rd March 2015, 09:21 PM
Yep - times have changed very much seeing a Pony 4pack !
TBH the aftermarket guys are going to have a field day with this just as I6T and blow off many higher HP brands.
The handling I expect to have better balance compared to the 8 just as I6T did to the FPV 8's, especially back in the Boss versions.
I said it before, this will sell well imo, new buyers to the brand for sure. Focus RS will lose out to this purely on the "look" coupe factor and expected price diff.

Got to say during winter when I rarely use the wife's JEEP, those seat heaters are worth more than auto windows UP.

GT 1680kg
Ecoboost 1602kg.

For the Mustang GT, that means an increase in weight of 39kg in manual form, and 24kg as an automatic. Total kerb weight for the GT is a relatively porky 1680kg, while weight distribution is 53 percent front, 47 percent rear.

The 1602kg Mustang EcoBoost is not only lighter, but better balanced thanks to a front-rear weight distribution of 52:48.

45k for a manual eb has me more than a little interested I have to admit.

Realistically, it's still 10-12k more than I'd prefer to spend, but hopefully by the time I'm ready to buy the mad rush of sales at the start will have slowed and maybe prices might be a little better?

One would assume they will be MY16's.

Most people have signed subject to driving the vehicle. Ive put my name down at this stage and put an order in. If I don't like it when it comes I won't be taking it.

Ok, so to me that's not a sale, anything conditional is effectively a reservation on a car, or "first dibs".

This must mean Ford are bringing in significant stock?

Id say 90% will take them though.

My biggest problem is if I fit in it, and fit comfortibly. Something I can't judge by a photo!

Yes stock will be signifcant. Something tells me Ford US has told Ford AUS not to screw this up, I now know of 2 dealers that have approx 30 orders each. Put that across 20 major dealers are we are talking 600+ cars minimum.

Dealers are happily taking peoples names and ordering cars, it secures them allocation which means even if people don't buy they will be able to fill orders once the cars get here.

Dealerships have been known to put in Ghost orders just to get allocations up. Only problem is Ford now request the telephone number of the buyer, and in turn can cold call them to make sure that their order is infact real and they actually exist.

All I can say is if you want a specific car and colour, and being a soft top unless you put something in the line, you wont get what you want for a very long time, my guess is Aug 2016.

Norm charcoal interior only. Wheels come standard as the matt black ones, similar to HSV SV pack ones. Not sure on the optional wheels though.

Ok, the cars at the Opera house have different wheels to the cars on the Ford AU website which are the satin black SV style wheel.

Well I don't like black rims for starters, 1 scratch, yes wheel option would have to be taken depending what finish :)

Wheel option is $500 for nickel (shiny silver) finish. That's the go.

Black wheels make it look like you have run out of wheel cleaner.

Is the wheel option listed on Fords website? Such an annoying site to try to use...

Wheels are a consumable anyway.

I haven't replaced tyres on any of my cars for more than ten years....

Ok, to support what others have said my dealer has confirmed get the order in by COB tomorrow and car will be in first allocation for Nov delivery.

Get order in before early april and its Feb 2016 del.

Details and price will be confirmed in the morning..!

Dealer also said Ford will be calling all purchasers to ensure they are legitimate customers.... Lessons learned from GT-F perhaps???

Was caled today by sales manager to confirm order and sign papers. I actually said that I had heard of some dealers selling at 63-65k.. He was surprised and said they are selling all at rrp.

Also read me he dealer advice which suggested December start date for deliveries. Given I am about number 14 at my dealer I probably won't get my car until feb! Which sucks. Also said to expect a call from ford Aus in the next month to confirm I am a real person, then production details and delivery month to follow. He also mentioned that dealers have been warned to not put dodgy orders or keep orders that are cancelled. Threat of no dealer supply for 6 months which seemed a bit far fetched to me

If you had placed your order by last friday they were saying Nov delivery for first allocation.

Which is what I thought and I ordered start of feb but apparently if you had ordered by last Friday it was that you would be part of launch delivery which is sometime between November and feb, but dealer thinks it's already dec-March

No they weren't!

They were saying any date between Nov 2015 to Feb 2016.

No they weren't!

They were saying any date prior to Feb 2016.

Not what my dealer said.....

Not arguing over who's right or wrong, just the different messages dealers are saying.

One common thing they all say is Ford will be contacting the purchaser to verify.

TBH i seriously doubt even Ford know when the cars will get here as dealers claim a month or 2 ago August for first cars.....

There has also been some suggestion the cars we get will be a hybrid mix of 2 packs with some features removed to reduce costs because of the $AUD weakening...

Yeah but your dealer can't even get the price right mate.

The dealer bulletin (I've read it) states that cars will be delivered between Nov 15 and Feb 16 (if you ordered by March the 6).

They cannot guarantee who will receive their allocation or in what order but they will fulfill all orders that were taken by the 6th.

I hope your dealer didn't guarantee your friend her convertible this year because it may not happen.

This is the same bulletin that I have been read over the phone. I also can't see ford changing the spec now with actual sales invoices in place as well as features documented on the website..

So let me get this right... You sign a contract and pay a deposit on a vehicle where the already listed features are diminishing according to our dollar capitulating?
They can't do that!!.... That's like buying an airline ticket to travel to New York next Christmas, and when you board they tell you you're getting off at Hawaii because the dollars fallen.

No what you get is what is on the website and or the brochure.

Whats in the marketing now is locked in.

We were never going to get the full performance pack, just parts of it.

Yes but what are we not getting? I am annoyed that uk is getting options and we aren't

Importers have been using this method of market correction since the beginning of time.

there is a disclaimer covering this that basically says they reserve the right to change specs and price without notice.

Its not normally done outside a model change and these days you will see that occur more frequently to align with MYXX.

In this particular case some items from the performance pack have been removed from what was originally hoped to be part of it. No further changes will be made now, not for the batch that is coming.

What you see now is it, locked in.

I wonder, the Aussie dollar keeps falling this year, goes down past the 70 cent threshold,
down to say 63 cents by the time Mustang gets here - How expensive are all these imports going to be...

I recon XR8 and 6.2 SS Commodore are going to be absolute bargains by comparison.

Mustang pricing on Fords website was finally fixed today, Convertible DA price went UP about $1500. Just under $73K DA with metallic and Nickle wheels..

Auto Coupe with same options $63K DA.

I don't think its crazy.
New imported line, many hurdles big or small I imagine still getting nutted out or done, production forecasting would be the biggest issue I expect etcetc shipping times, pre delivery etc
In my own industry importing from the US we've always factored in 3mth lead time from issue of PO.
That can drag out another month at times - even more whilst there had been a union dispute at the West Coast US ports not long ago that crippled US exports imports for sometime, there's still a back log from this for eg.
