Here we go! Ford's all-new, 2015 Mustang is nearly here and it's finally announced pricing information for the 'Stang.
To be honest, it seems that the reception over the all-new design has been lukewarm at best. Though the vehicle was SWARMED at the 2014 New York Auto Show, it'll be interesting to see if this can take on the Camaro with the much-needed upgraded suspension.
OK. Philosophical debate aside, the 2015 Mustang will start at a base price of $24,425 — including destination and delivery. This means it's nearly $1,100 MORE expensive than the outgoing car.
So. Is this increase TOO HIGH or JUST RIGHT for you?
