Gentlemen, start your wallets! 2015 Ford Mustang fastback orders start today

Over the last several months, we’ve brought you virtually every imaginable detail of the forthcoming 2015 Ford Mustang, including details of its design, a deep dive into its engines, and rumors of forthcoming high performance models.

With that information blast, though, we’ve left out one significant factoid: price.

Delightfully, we can finally divulge that detail today: Officially going on sale today, the 2015 Ford Mustang fastback, powered by a 300-horsepower 3.7-liter V6, starts at $24,425, including destination and delivery charges.

For that money, you don’t just get the latest iteration of the world’s most iconic pony car, you also get a slew of standard features: Fully independent front and rear suspension for improved driving dynamics and ride quality, eight airbags including front, knee and side-impact protection for driver and front passenger, rearview camera system, leather-wrapped steering wheel with manual tilt and telescope adjustment, push-button start, SYNC connectivity system with next-generation AppLink to control smartphone apps with simple voice commands, a 4.2-inch color display and two USB ports, and a few other goodies.

Although Ford hasn’t announced pricing for the other models in the Mustang line, it has given us the official model names: Mustang EcoBoost (powered by a 305-hp 2.3-liter four-cylinder) and Mustang GT (with a 420-hp 5.0-liter V8). Both, it should be noted, are available in the limited 50 Years appearance package.

If you were hoping to plunk down an order for either of those mean machines today, hold on. Sadly, only the base Mustang fastback is up for order today. And you won’t be able to drive it away either. First deliveries of the 2015 ‘Stang don’t start until later this year.
