2015 Ford Mustang order guide released

So that happened.  The 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang came, went, and we are now moving into another generation of pony car.  It all seems a bit too surreal…and happened quite rapidly, given all the build-up.  With offerings like the Ford-installed-but-not-warranted line lock, hot color choices, SVT branding, and some serious performance options, the 2015 Mustang is seriously making waves in only a short time of awareness in the (now global) marketplace.

When it’s finally put to press, given this document was a “leak”, we can expect to see some new platform Mustangs hued in: competition orange, avalanche gray, triple yellow, deep-impact blue, magnetic metallic, race red, black and oxford white.  Additionally, Wimbledon white will also make the cut, paying proper homage to the first color of the 1964 Mustang.  Very well-played, Ford.

There are a whole host of performance and appearance upgrades–more than are worth spewing about right here, only to leave each of you skipping ahead and reading the guide for yourselves.  Now with that being said, here ya go; here is the reportedly valid and accurate 2015 Mustang order guide for your drooling and reading pleasure.

Follow the jump for some real speed car color examples of the new 2015.

Line Lock is stock on the 2015 Ford Mustang

What’s better than a 2015 Ford Mustang?  What’s better than a smoky burnout?  How about BOTH?  With 50 years behind it, an avid fan base excited to get more for their money, and Ford listening to what its customers want, we are totally set with this one, folks.

Every 1320ft racer knows the tires have to be on the sticky side to tear off from the tree and make any sort of respectable run down the track.  The process, of course, is a calculated tire burnout based upon a plethora of circumstantial factors required by the car, track, weather, and…..the list goes on.  Well now, there’s one less thing to have to think about AND to have to think about installing from an aftermarket source: a line lock.

That’s right–Ford is offering up the chance for saving some rear brake pads and simultaneously shredding the rear tires on the 2015 Mustang GT…as a standard offering.  The comical part in all of this?  Ford offers the line lock feature from the factory, states that the feature should only be used when racing in sanctioned areas, then closes with saying any racing of the car automatically voids the warranty.  Wait, what?  Bean counters and lawyers got the last words on this news, it seems, hah!

Keep tracking to see this in action and to read the official Ford Press Release.

Are you curious to know what day it is?  It’s Ford Mustang day, of course!  Our favorite pony car is now 50 years old, and marking the occasion are two incredible coastal events to keep all of us excited about the iconic Americana we have all enjoyed over the years.  Las Vegas and Charlotte are the two hot spots holding a barrage of entertainment, ranging from open-track racing, cruise-ins, ride alongs, exhibits, burnouts, dinners, and even foot races.  Wait, running?  Nah, we’ll drive.  Thanks, though.

Even so, be sure to keep reading, below, to take a glance at the PR clippings which totally detail the schedule of events by day, by hour.  This should keep you plenty busy, if you’re one of the fortunate ones to attend one of the events this Easter weekend.

Question: Where does the 2015 Ford Mustang park?

Answer:  Pretty much wherever it wants.

And in this case, on its 50th birthday, the Ford Mustang (once again) finds a cozy spot at the top of the Empire State building in New York City.  Why?  Because it can.  Why not?  No reason.  Ford is pulling out all the stops for this celebration, and there should be no question as to why it’s all going down.  From celebrations on BOTH American coastlines, to global social campaigns, every single fan…and maybe some new ones…will know that 50 years of an icon is simply awesome.  Especially when it marks the fact that pride and joy endure the test of hardship over time.

The Ford Mustang made it throughout 50 years.  Here’s to many more to come!
