Anyone wanting to saddle up a new 2015 Ford Mustang is going to have to pony up $1,000 more than last year.
This year’s version starts at $24,425 including delivery charges, which is a jump of $1,090 over the $23,335 the maker charges for the current base model.
The new Mustang goes on sale this fall, and the base model comes with a 3.7-liter V-6 producing more than 300 horsepower, although a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder putting out 305 hp and a 5.0-liter V8 developing 420 hp are also options.
While it will cost more to get this ‘Stang out of the stable, it comes with more standard equipment than its predecessor, according to Ford, including independent rear suspension, a backup camera, a leather-wrapped steering wheel tilt and telescope, push button start and Sync connectivity system with next-generation AppLink to control smartphone apps with simple voice commands as well as a 4.2-inch color display and two USB ports.
