Mustang Wins Vincentric Best Value in America Award for 6th Straight Year

2015 Ford MustangThe Ford Mustang has done it again: for the sixth straight year, America’s favorite pony car has won the Vincentric Best Value in America Award for Sports Cars.

This award is based on statistical analysis that combines total cost of ownership of 2015 model year vehicles with their current market price, taking in account insurance, financing, maintenance, and depreciation. After weighing all these categories, the winner is chosen from the one that does the best overall!

In other words, if you are buying a sports car, the 2015 Mustang will give you the best bang for your buck. At Highway Ford, we’d wager that a big part of that is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, which uses direct injection and variable cam timing to deliver huge power at little cost of fuel—making the car more economical in the long run.

The Vincentric Best Value in America Award joins the many other honors the Mustang has already racked up, including “Hottest Car” of the 2014 SEMA Show, 2015 Automobile All-Star, Edmunds.com’s Most Popular Entry Sport Car, Cars.com’s Shoppers’ Choice Award, and lots more!  For more information about everyone’s favorite sports car, contact us here at Highway Ford today!

2014 Ford Mustang

If 2013 was the year of the Corvette, 2014 was most definitely the year of the Mustang. Although the sixth-generation pony car was first revealed in December 2013 on Good Morning America, the world really got its first glimpse at the redesigned model at the auto shows early in 2014, starting with Detroit and going onto Chicago, New York, and more. For almost a year, Ford released snippets of information about the Mustang, such as its fuel economy ratings, its available audio systems, and its performance packages. The 2015 Mustang finally went on sale in November 2014, and was an immediate hit with gearheads everywhere.

Aluminum-Bodied F-150

2014 was an incredible year for America’s favorite pickup truck. The long-running truck was first produced in 1948, and 2014 marked the release of the brand new 13th generation for the 2015 model year. In order to reduce weight and improve efficiency without sacrificing power, Ford outfitted its Dearborn plant with the correct machinery to build an all-new aluminum-bodied F-150 for the latest generation of drivers. The result is Ford’s most impressive F-150 truck ever made.

The 2016 Explorer gets a redesigned front end with a new, higher grille; a closed-off roof rack; and a new spoiler. Additional features include new front and rear cameras, smart-charging USB ports, a hands-free liftgate, and a new audio system for the new Platinum trim level. The 2016 Explorer will go on sale sometime in 2015, and we’ll be excited to see it!

2015 Ford Mustang Boasts Singular Combination of Progressive Technology and Design

We’ve heard all the rumors, read all the reports, and listened to all the experts.  Finally, the wait is over: the 2015 Ford Mustang has been fully revealed…and it’s as beautiful and powerful as you would expect. The new Mustang comes with a fresh twist on the iconic exterior design. Plus, it brings you a plethora of engine options. However, no matter how many cylinders your Mustang’s engine has—4, 6, or 8—you’ll still be getting over 300 horsepower out of your new pony.

“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “The visceral look, sound, and performance of Mustang resonates with people, even if they’ve never driven one. Mustang is definitely more than just a car – it is the heart and soul of Ford.”

The new Mustang even includes updated steering and handling systems, and the final result is a car that’s simply a dream to drive. Plus, with awesome technological features like SYNC, MyKey, and a new Shaker Audio System, you’ll be entertained and ecstatic both inside and outside of this car. Come see us at Highway Ford today to learn more!

New 2015 Ford Mustang Begins Production (Finally!)

Finally! No longer will we need to say, “The 2015 Ford Mustang is coming soon.” It’s been around for 50 years and six generations now, but the all-new model is likely to prove the best yet. And it will be available to more people than ever before as well. Production recently began at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, which will soon be shipping these new Mustangs to over 120 countries worldwide.

“Mustang is and will continue to be an automotive icon,” Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of the Americas, said. “Expanding its availability globally affords our customers around the world the opportunity to have a true firsthand Mustang experience—one unlike any other.”

You can take our word for it here at Highway Ford: those aren’t just words. The 2015 Mustang certainly has the capability to back it up. It comes in both the fastback and convertible models, offering three engines—a 2.3L EcoBoost, 3.7L V6, and, of course, the 5.0L V8 with 435 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. And we’re just scratching the surface of what’s so awesome about the new pony car, so come see us to learn more today.

2015 Ford Mustang Loaded with Supplier-Made Innovations

The Ford Mustang is one of the Blue Oval’s most famous and influential models—and it’s now stretched that influence over half a century. However, as Ford introduces the 2015 Ford Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition, the brand wants to make it clear that the Mustang has always been a collaborative effort. Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s vice president for global purchasing, recently highlighted all the awesome supplier-made innovations included on the new Mustang.

Those supplier technologies, on the Mustang alone, include quarter windows made with louvered glass and hydroformed A-pillar and roof rails. “Considering the impact suppliers have on our business, with 70 percent of the value of the vehicle being purchased from our supplier partners, our suppliers are critical to our ability to offer attractive solutions to our customers,” Thai-Tang said in a statement.

Suppliers were also responsible for key additions and innovations on the upcoming 2015 F-150 as well. These two great new vehicles prove that the Ford Motor Company is consistently invested in finding the best people to work on their products and thus create the best possible automobiles in the world. So come in to Highway Ford to check out all of these amazing Ford cars, trucks, and SUVs today.

Take a first look at the 2015 Ford Mustang

Thirty years have gone by and finally Ford brought back a turbo four. The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost took one of its first test drives in Charlotte, NC earlier this month. The new Mustang is equipped with a turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four cylinder and will be placed in between the naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6 and naturally aspirated 5.0- liter V8. The 2015 Ford Mustang has the best return on fuel economy of the three powerplants due to its all-aluminum engine that will have 305 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque.

Upon the launch of the 2015 Ford Mustang, a six gear manual and automatic transmission will be offered. The automatic transmission has been upgraded to include four different electronic modes; normal, sport, track and snow/wet. Although the 4 cylinder engine lacks the smoothness of a 6 or 8, it makes up for it with its smaller mass. The reduced weight allows the Mustang to be very nimble even throughout excessive maneuvering and could lead to being the best in the family. The new and improved 2015 Ford Mustangs will be on our lot and available soon (not soon enough in our eyes!) so come over and see us at Highway Ford if you are looking to add one of these to your own family!

2015 Ford Mustang Convertible Overlooks the Big Apple

Did you know that in 1965, Ford put a Mustang Convertible on top of New York City’s one and only Empire State Building? It’s true! And here’s another fun fact, they rode it up the elevator to get it to the top! Can you imagine the look on everyone’s faces when the elevators doors opened and they were greeted by a pair of Mustang headlights! If only we could have been there to see them park that iconic Mustang all those years ago.

Oh, did we mention you can still see it? Well, maybe not the original Mustang, but Ford will be placing a 2015 Ford Mustang in the same spot back they did back in 1965, to celebrate 50 years of the Ford Mustang roaming the streets and highways of this great country. In order to get the Mustang to the top of the Empire State Building, engineers had to work to disassemble the car in a very particular way in order to fit it into the series of elevators to take it up the 86 floors to the observation deck, and will then reassemble the Mustang at its final destination. If you want a closer look at the new 2015 Ford Mustang, there are still a few days left in the New York International Auto Show where it will be on display until April 27th!

Ford to Place 2015 Mustang atop the Empire State Building

The 50th Anniversary of the iconic Ford Mustang is just a few short weeks away. And, Ford wants to celebrate in a big way. On April 16 and 17, if you go to the observation deck of the Empire State Building in New York City, you will see a 2015 Ford Mustang convertible, not way down below on the streets, but right next to you, on the deck.

“New York is one of the greatest cities in the world, and it’s the place where the Ford Mustang story began 50 years ago,” said Mark Fields, Ford chief operating officer, in a statement.

2015 Mustang atop Empire State uilding

Pretty soon there will be a new 2015 Mustang atop the Empire State Building where that 1965 one is.

Ford unveiled the Mustang for the first time at the 1964 New York World’s Fair on April 17. And, in 1965, Ford cut a Mustang into three pieces to fit it in the elevators of the Empire State Building and put it on display at the top.

Now, Ford is going to recreate the process to commemorate this significant anniversary. However, this time around, it will be an even tighter fit, since the new Mustang is seven inches longer and four inches wider.

“Like the team that did this in 1965, the current crew visited the Empire State Building before starting and took careful measurements of its new elevators and doors before cutting up the car,” said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer, in a statement.

The Mustang will be on display for a total of 54 hours at the Empire State Building. If you’ll be in New York on April 16 or 17, be sure to stop by and take a look at this historic moment.
