2015 Mustang Is a True Spectacle

The Ford Mustang has consistently been a stylish car that is not short on power. The new 2015 model is no exception. It debuts a new look that has been a long time coming. With a six-speed automatic and the option of having EcoBoost, this Mustang is a true spectacle with both its sporting and efficiency features.

2015 MustangUSA Today says that the Launch Control system “feathers the amount of power so that — theoretically — just the right amount is applied to the rear tires for the quickest possible acceleration.” This means that through controlling the power output, the Mustang is made even more efficient.

So how much is this new-and-improved Mustang? For the standard V-6, the price starts at $24,425, $25,995 for the EcoBoost, and $32,925 for the GT V-8 model.

Now that you know this Mustang has to be your next car, the hardest decision you will have to make is which trim to get. The 2015 Mustang will roll into dealerships this October, so plan to get yours from us at Cambridge Classic Ford!

Ford’s Supplier Relationships Mean New Features for F-150 and Mustang

Ford Motor Company has a long-time reputation of maintaining outstanding relationships with its suppliers. The company’s suppliers vary from year to year, and this year, Ford ranked fourth out of six in the annual Planning Perspectives Inc. survey of how auto suppliers view their customers.

Ford is currently in the middle of a year with 23 product launches, 16 of those in North America. Ford’s current supplier relationships are helping to provide a range of innovative new features for the 2015 F-150 and Mustang.

According to autonews.com, Hau Thai-Tang, group vice president for Ford global purchasing, showcased the following technologies to be seen on 2015 vehicles:

Hydroformed A-pillar and roof rails (2015 Mustang). Schuler Inc. and Midway Products worked with Ford to create a heavy-gauge steel hydroformed A-pillar and roof rails.

High-strength steel frame (2015 F-150). The 2015 F-150 will be the first pickup featuring a lightweight aluminum body, however the lightweight pickup will feature a steel frame. Ford worked with Metalsa S.A. on its steel frame that is 60 pounds lighter with improved rigidity.

LED headlamps (2015 F-150). Ford noted that they worked with suppliers Osram GmbH and Flex-n-Gate Corp. to design a new headlamp design that “saves energy, is designed for longevity, and casts a much brighter and clearer light down the road than halogen or incandescent lamps”.

Quarter windows (2015 Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition). Ford worked with Magna International Inc. to create new quarter windows made of louvered glass.

“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.

Ford maintains a massive supply chain, with more than 1,100 suppliers located across more than 4,600 manufacturing sites, and supplying more than 130,000 parts for use in Ford vehicles.

Ford Creates 50 Year Limited Edition Mustang to Honor Car’s Lasting Popularity

The Ford Mustang burst onto the scene back in 1964—the Blue Oval sold the first ever Mustang to Capt. Stanley Tucker in April of that year—immediately earned a reputation as America’s favorite sports car, and has now defended that reputation for a whole half-century. In honor of that achievement, as well as the car’s lasting popularity with Ford enthusiasts and muscle car fans in general, Ford has designed the 50 Year Limited Edition 2015 Ford Mustang GT fastback.

Ford announced the creation of the exclusive Mustang at the New York International Auto Show, where they also have the new Mustang on display atop the Empire State Building. “When Mustang was approved for development more than 50 years ago, I don’t think anyone imagined it would spawn such a dedicated base of fans around the world and still be in production today” executive chairman Bill Ford said. “We are thrilled to be here in New York—where Mustang was first shown to the public at the 1964 World’s Fair—to re-create that historic event for today’s Mustang enthusiasts.”

So what, you may ask, makes this exclusive Mustang so special? First of all, the 50 Year Limited Edition is based on the all-new 2015 Mustang GT fastback, but it comes standard with basically every available Mustang option. In fact, you only have two choices to make when ordering your 50 Year Limited Edition Mustang: color and transmission. And when it comes to color, you only have two options: Wimbledon White (the same color as Capt. Tucker’s original Mustang) and Kona Blue. Both colors are exclusive to the 50 Year Limited Edition Mustang.

This ultra-special Mustang will be available this fall. But in honor of the Mustang’s inaugural year, there will only be 1,964 units of this special beast made—so come see us at Cambridge Classic Ford to see about ordering your very own 50 Year Limited Edition Mustang today!

Whipple Prepares 700 Horsepower Ford Mustang

There’s been quite a bit of exciting Mustang news recently, topped off—literally—with the announcement that the iconic sports car will travel 86 floors up an elevator to the observatory of the Empire State Building later in April. However, as cool as that is, you can’t really do much driving hundreds of feet in the air, and the Mustang has always been about real, bare-knuckled, muscled-up driving. Whipple Superchargers didn’t lose sight of that—and that’s why, before the Ford Mustang has even hit dealership showrooms—they’ve created a customized Mustang with 700 horsepower.2015 Ford Mustang

It’s a 2015 Mustang GT, specifically, that will get the specialized treatment. The GT already starts with a 5.0L V8 engine and gets turned up to the next level with a 2.9L twin-screw supercharger. The GT’s original engine comes with 420 horsepower, so that means the folks at Whipple are adding a whopping 280 horsepower to their customized Mustang. Even better, the new supercharger fits very easily into the engine’s setup, making it easy to install and crack the 700 club in your new Mustang.

So, while the 2015 Mustang prepares for the long flight up the Empire State elevators, ready to stare out at the whole city of NYC, we’ll be dreaming of getting behind the wheel of the supercharged Mustang here at Cambridge Classic Ford. Don’t wake us up—unless it’s to tell us that the new Mustang is rolling into our showroom, of course.

50 Years of Heritage Marks the Arrival of the Next Generation Mustang

It’s here.

Marking the 50th anniversary of the legendary muscle car is the all-new Mustang for the next generation.

Despite the new look, the long sculpted hood and short rear deck make it impossible to mistake for another car—it has the unmistakable flair and heritage of the Mustang. But it also introduces its fair share of new design features, such as a lower, wider stance, a more steeply sloped windshield and lower roof, and three-dimensional, tri-bar lamps with sequential turn signals.

Under the hood, drivers will be delighted to find an upgraded V6 or V8 as well as an all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, delivering between 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque or 420 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque depending your selection, and improved efficiency.

It also features new front and rear suspension systems that improves the Mustang’s handling, steering, and ride experience, as well as dozens of new and enhanced technologies in the cabin available at the driver’s fingertips.

Come find the all-new Ford Mustang at Cambridge Classic Ford when it goes into production.

Ford Mustang and F-Series Win SEMA Awards

Every year, four cars are chosen as the winners of the SEMA Awards for Hottest Car, Hottest Sport Compact, Hottest Truck, and Hottest 4×4 SUV. Every year, Ford enters the contest for the hottest car and hottest truck, and every year, Ford wins at least one.

This year, just as the last, Ford even managed to win two: the Mustang took home the Hottest Car award and the F-150 won Hottest Truck. While the Mustang was proud to get its second consecutive award, the F-150 nearly overshadowed the achievement by earning its fourth—the best-selling truck has always won the award since the inception of the Awards in 2010.

The SEMA Awards are granted to vehicles that are the best-suited for accessorizing and that showcase the year’s coolest products. Consumers can expect that the winners of this year will have greater and more available specialty products for accessorizing than any of their competitors.

Ford Featured in ‘Need for Speed’

Everyone needs a little speed in their lives. Those back roads just scream for you to let loose and fly for a little while. For those of you who are lucky enough to be able to drive, you’ve all experience the need for speed at some point in your driving career.

Well, the Ford Motor Company is no different than the rest of us. Ford partnered up with the movie “Need for Speed” and gave them two custom Fords to use. The movie is due to be released March 14, 2014, but we have an exclusive preview for you.

A Mustang Shelby GT500 with a one-off widebody kit and 220inch wheels, capable of producing 662 hp, gives off just the right arcade style. As of right now, the film’s star (Aaron Paul) is set to drive the Mustang as his primary car.

A rugged F-450 is also going to appear in the film. It is powered by Ford’s 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine. The Magna Flow exhaust and a set of smokestack-style pipes lend a tough edge to the already strong looking F-450. The truck is also outfitted with a custom cargo box, front bumper with integrated bull bar, 9,000-pound winch, First Attack wheels, and a 7-inch lift kit so that it can have an action hero-like appearance.
