Back between 2012-2013 I did reviews of the most popular American muscle cars. I reviewed the Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and the Ford Mustang GT. The Mustang was the last of the 3 I reviewed and I definitely enjoyed driving it. Out of the 3, the Ford Mustang GT was what I considered the most stylish of the group, I said it was the prettiest. This wasn’t a take away from its muscle car label, but I had to note how good-looking this car was. Now in 2015 I’m back with the Ford Mustang GT again and Ford has redesigned the look of the Mustang. Does it still hold the title of prettiest of the group? Still the most attractive?
When you look at the Mustang GT from the side, it looks longer in appearance. This works well as you travel from the front to the sides. Which leads to a better looking backside than it had before. Just like the front, Ford seems to have smoothed out the backside and removed some items that might have looked okay before but now seeing it in hindsight look awful. The very first thing I notice about the back is the removal of a protruding circle that was the home of the GT badge on the trunk. This time around this huge circle is gone and simple has the GT badge on the trunk without the protruding object. This gives the back a much cleaner look, which always appears to be slimmed and sloped down some. As you go from the back window to the trunk lid you can see if slopes down seamlessly. Before the back window dropped down to the trunk, but now seems to slide down to it. The rear lights have also been change and given a more chic look upgrading from the old. As you move to the lower end of the back where the license plate is, you can see the design changes and removal of extra items that didn’t add anything to the look. This stripping down has led to a Mustang that is very chic, very modern, but still with the spirit of the Mustang.
On the interior you can see many similarities with the Recaro seats, but I liked how they updated center console. Gone are the generic looking buttons and knobs, replaced with something more analog feeling. I especially like the switch flipping buttons along the bottom row that changed a few of the driving modes. Little changers all around make for subtle but more prominent look inside. This does well with the outer look also.
When it came to the tech, unlike before it satisfied my needs and was great to use. All the features in the Mustang GT complimented well with the look and feel of the car. This was a muscle that blended all the modern tech into a car that was great analog so to speak. The digital items added didn’t take away from it, but meshed well. Of course all the basics where on-board. Satellite radio, and Bluetooth connectivity was present with the ability to stream my music from the phone (this is always a priority for me!).
Man driving this Mustang GT was amazing! I really didn’t want to give it back, right up until we had a lot of snow in New York City lol. From the moment I left my office building and see it parked across the street I absolutely loved this car. It looks truly amazing no matter which angle you notice it from. And this was pretty much the case for the entire week I had it. I would notice people stop, stare, snap pictures, point, ask questions about it, and give me the thumbs up! Everywhere I went people were quite taken back by it.
The 2015 Ford Mustang GT has a starting MSRP of $32,300 for the GT Fastback. If you already own a Mustang and thinking about upgrade, I say it is a must! If you are thinking of getting a muscle car and this is one of your choices you may be debating on, I said make this a strong choice. I’ll say it again, this car looks amazing! And it definitely has muscle behind it (just be careful in heavy rain or snow!). If it wasn’t for the snow that hit New York City when I had it, Ford might not have been able to get it back from me!
