When Ford announced in 2013 that it would import the new generation Mustang, the phones didn’t stop ringing until the car launched in December 2015, with more than 20,000 expressions of interest and hundreds of confirmed orders before pricing was even announced.
It went on to sell more than 6000 units in its first 18 months on sale with pricing ranging from $49,990 to $99,980 for the Mustang Fastback 2.3 GTDI and Mustang R-SPEC models, respectively. The Mustang was sold in convertible and fastback form, with the majority of buyers choosing the automatic V8 GT version over the turbocharged four-cylinder model. It courted controversy in early 2017, when it managed to score just two out of five stars in ANCAP testing.
This vehicle is also known as Ford Mustang GT.
