Ford Mustang Review, For Sale, Colours, Interior & News in Australia

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 $51,490 to $83,241 for the Mustang 2.3 Gtdi and Mustang Mach 1 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.

Ford Mustang Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Mustang here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • I'm on a temporary visa here in Australia and I want to import a Mustang from the US...

    The importation paperwork and costs will vary from state to state, so you need to check with your home state’s authorities on what’s required. Your chosen shipping company might be able to help you with this, but make sure you check it all out at the Australia Border Force website (abf.gov.au).

    While your budget rules out the latest shape Mustangs and the early classic models, you might just find a 1980s Fox-body Mustang or a 1990s model that’s already on the road here. Doing it that way, you stand to wind up with a better car than a cheapie from the States that will swallow several thousands of your budget dollars just to land it here. Which is another way of asking why you’d import something that was already available here?

    Even if you still want to import a Mustang, be aware that you’ll be up for costs including (but not limited to) pre-shipment costs (removal of asbestos and steam cleaning) freight and insurance, all government charges and duties, storage charges, customs broker’s fees, wharf and transport charges and processing fees. And that’s before we even get to the modifications you might have to make to the vehicle to make it legal to drive in Australia. And did we mention that, right now, global supply-chain problems are holding up literally thousands of containers on the docks in the US?

    Perhaps the one advantage you have is that, as a temporary resident, you can (under some conditions) import a car for a limited time (up to 12 months) without paying duties and taxes.

  • Is the 2018 V8 Mustang worth the money?

    That's the big question on our lips too John, and I'm afraid we won't be able to answer it until we drive it when the car arrives in June. Given the Mustang's popularity, I'd be very surprised if dealers were willing to deviate much from the recommended price after launch. Perhaps 18 months down the track when demand subsides though!

  • Should I buy a demo car?

    Demos are not generally abused; they are mostly driven normally with reasonable care, often under the supervision of a salesman.

    You’re worried unnecessarily, and besides, the car will still be covered by Ford’s warranty if it happens to have a problem.

  • When will the 2018 Mustang arrive in Australia?

    A Ford spokesman told us: "The 10-speed automatic will be available in the 2018 Mustang, which is due in Australia most likely around mid-2018 at the earliest. An evolution of the current Mustang, the 2018 model will benefit from increased Driver Assistance Technology, including Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane-Keep Assist. We would not speculate on the outcome of any potential future testing, but would reiterate that consumer safety is a priority for us, and we are constantly developing more safety technology for consumers. The 2018 Mustang will benefit from such advancements." With respect to a safety rating we can't say what it will be until the new Mustang has been assessed by ANCAP, but you would expect it would be given a higher rating than the Mustang currently has.
