So that happened. The 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang came, went, and we are now moving into another generation of pony car. It all seems a bit too surreal…and happened quite rapidly, given all the build-up. With offerings like the Ford-installed-but-not-warranted line lock, hot color choices, SVT branding, and some serious performance options, the 2015 Mustang is seriously making waves in only a short time of awareness in the (now global) marketplace.
When it’s finally put to press, given this document was a “leak”, we can expect to see some new platform Mustangs hued in: competition orange, avalanche gray, triple yellow, deep-impact blue, magnetic metallic, race red, black and oxford white. Additionally, Wimbledon white will also make the cut, paying proper homage to the first color of the 1964 Mustang. Very well-played, Ford.
There are a whole host of performance and appearance upgrades–more than are worth spewing about right here, only to leave each of you skipping ahead and reading the guide for yourselves. Now with that being said, here ya go; here is the reportedly valid and accurate 2015 Mustang order guide for your drooling and reading pleasure.

What’s better than a 2015 Ford Mustang? What’s better than a smoky burnout? How about BOTH? With 50 years behind it, an avid fan base excited to get more for their money, and Ford listening to what its customers want, we are totally set with this one, folks.
Every 1320ft racer knows the tires have to be on the sticky side to tear off from the tree and make any sort of respectable run down the track. The process, of course, is a calculated tire burnout based upon a plethora of circumstantial factors required by the car, track, weather, and…..the list goes on. Well now, there’s one less thing to have to think about AND to have to think about installing from an aftermarket source: a line lock.
That’s right–Ford is offering up the chance for saving some rear brake pads and simultaneously shredding the rear tires on the 2015 Mustang GT…as a standard offering. The comical part in all of this? Ford offers the line lock feature from the factory, states that the feature should only be used when racing in sanctioned areas, then closes with saying any racing of the car automatically voids the warranty. Wait, what? Bean counters and lawyers got the last words on this news, it seems, hah!
Keep tracking to see this in action and to read the official Ford Press Release.
