The Ford Mustang has done it again: for the sixth consecutive year, it has earned the Vincentric Best Value in America Award for Sports Cars, showing that no, it really doesn’t intend to ever step down from the top.
2105 Ford Mustang
The Best Value in America Awards, as you may have gathered from the name, are annual awards handed out by the Vincentric research firm, which specializes in ownership cost analysis. The company ranks vehicles in their respective segments based on several key costs of ownership, including depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs.
Vincentric’s data found that the Mustang’s total cost of ownership over a five year period was 4% below the expected amount, thanks to the lowest maintenance and fuel costs in its class. That’s about $4,000 cheaper than its closest competitor—but you don’t even have to wait that long to save money, as the Mustang is already one of the most affordable sports cars on the market right now! Come check it out at Cambridge Classic Ford!
Not only is the new Mustang a high-performance muscle car, but it also features an incredible new safety system. The 2015 Mustang safety features recently earned it a five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This just goes to show that the new model truly has everything you could ever need.
The NHTSA was most impressed with the improved safety on the latest model. According to Ford, the new Mustang has twice as many airbags as before, twice as many peripheral crash sensors, and an innovative new seatbelt-tensioning system.
“The new Mustang was built from the ground up,” said Carl Widmann, Mustang chief engineer. “It is more refined, more powerful and it has everything people have come to love about Mustang for the past 50 years.”
Aside from the array of standard safety features, the new Mustang also comes with driver assist technology. This includes adaptive cruise control, BLIS® Cross-Traffic Alert, and SYNC 911. With all of these features, you’ll be safer than ever in one of the world’s most popular muscle cars.
Nurburgring, ‘the Ring’, is a track in Germany that sees muscle cars going head to head in lap times every year. This year was no different and EVO reported that Ford is raising the bar.
Shortly after its debut in Detroit, the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R lapped the Ring faster than the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. The difference? Five seconds. It may not sound like much but on the track a split second is the difference between winning and losing.
With a time of 7 minutes 32.19 seconds, the Shelby beats out the Camaro Z28’s 7 minute 37.47 second lap. The Shelby GT350R’s time is comparable to the Ferrari 458 Italia’s.
With this new Mustang starting off the next generation right, Ford has picked up the pace and taken it directly to its competitors. With a 5.2L V8 engine putting out over 500 horses, weight saving modifications, and magnetic ride suspension, the standard has been set.
Is it any wonder the world would rather choose a Ford over a Chevy? Chevrolet’s response later this year with the release of the next generation Camaro still won’t be able to beat this Mustang.
As usual, this year’s SEMA show, going on now, is a hotbed of performance car activity. Of course, the Ford Motor Company is right in the thick of that action, with a bevy of new Ford Mustangs on display right now at the show. Ford brought more than the usual amount of Mustangs, in fact; they’re using SEMA as just another way to celebrate 50 years of Mustang.
We’re not sure which one of the many Mustangs currently in Las Vegas is the coolest, but we know which one is the boss: the King Cobra Edition, with its muscular design and daunting red and black coloring. The King Cobra gets over 600 horsepower, so it’s no surprise it’s the big daddy at SEMA right now.
It’s definitely not the only Mustang worth checking out, though—and you don’t even have to go to SEMA to see them all. Just come visit us here at Cambridge Classic Ford to see the Corvettes currently in inventory and learn more about the 2015 Mustang as well. We’ll tell you all about the new options and features, like the 2.3L EcoBoost engine that makes the Mustang more powerful and efficient than ever before.
Ford is going all out to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its iconic Mustang pony car and the SEMA show will be no exception. The American carmaker recently announced that it would be bringing multiple Mustang SEMA cars to Las Vegas this year, showcasing the pony car’s many features. Over a dozen of these Mustangs are expected to arrive at SEMA in November, coming from aftermarket tuners like Galpin Auto Sports, Steeda, Roush, and more
While each aftermarket vehicle will offer its own unique take on the ‘Stang’s big 5-0 anniversary, Galpin will start things off with a bang—or should we say with gold? The Galpin Mustang model will be covered in the precious metal, using black paint with gold flecks in it and gold wheels, side sills, brake calipers, and badges. Below all this shiny paint, the Galpin model will also pack a whopping powerhouse engine with a 5.0-liter V8 partnered with a Whipple supercharged that churns out 725 horsepower.
Are there buttons in your car that you’ve never used, but wondered what they’re for? If so, you can always dig out your owner’s manual and attempt to find the right page, or if you drive a 2015 Ford Mustang, let your smartphone do all the work.
Ford has announced a new 2015 Mustang app specifically for the all-new 2015 Mustang. In addition to trivia games, wallpapers, and ringtones, the app includes a feature that lets owners scan certain parts of the Mustang to learn more about certain features. You can even search for content to find exactly what you’re looking for.
“When it comes to new technology on Mustang, we focus on providing features the driver wants, and improving the driver’s experience behind the wheel,” said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer, in a statement. “Making key pieces of owner’s guide information available through the app is just one more great feature we’ve delivered to our customers.”
And, if you’re lucky enough to own one of the 50 Years Limited Edition Ford Mustangs, you’ll have access to password protected exclusive content, including classic Mustang videos, various milestones in the Mustang’s 50-year history, and key design features that make the special edition unique.
The 2015 Ford Mustang app is available to download in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Just search for the “2015 Ford Mustang app.”

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.
USA 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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
