The New Ford Mustang when it arrives in Australia will be taking on the hot hatches later this year thanks to a starting price under $45,000.
Ford Australia has revealed the full price list for the new coupe ahead of it hitting showrooms in December. And the headline number is $44,990 (plus on-road costs) the starting price for the 2.3-litre EcoBoost Fastback, with the automatic variant costing an additional $2500.
That price undercuts many hot hatches putting the Mustang in the middle of the hot hatch market.
The EcoBoost’s 2.3-litre four-cylinder engine produces 233kW and 432Nm, which far outperforms most of the hot hatches in its price range.
The V8-powered Mustang GT is also keenly priced at $54,990 for the manual and $56,490 for the six-speed automatic.
Ford already has 1200 firm orders for the Mustang and has also received interest from more than 15,000 potential customers and believes that more customers will flock to the new sports car after the announcement of its competitive pricing.
“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,” says Graeme Whickman, Vice President Marketing, Sales and Service.
Both variants come with the option of either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, electric power steering, 19-inch alloys, LED taillights, rain sensing wipers, sat-nav, reversing camera as well as Ford’s new SYNC2 infotainment system which is accessible through an eight-inch monitor on the dash .
Initial customers will also be able to option their cars with racing stripes ($650), black painted roof ($975), 19-inch premium wheels ($500) and prestige paint ($500).
