It’s the time that all Oregon Ford Mustang fans have waited for, the 2015 Ford Mustang is in Portland at Mackenzie Ford in Hillsboro. For further information, please contact us at (503) 640-6500.

The way Mustang looks, drives and sounds is key to what makes drivers just want to get in and hit the road. With more options to choose from, there is a Mustang to fit any lifestyle. Upgraded V6 and V8 engines are joined by an all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost® that brings state-of-the-art technology to the car.

Mustang GT continues with the latest edition of the throaty 5.0-liter V8, now featuring an upgraded valvetrain and cylinder heads that yield 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. A new intake manifold improves low-speed breathing for better fuel economy, idle stability and emissions.

The EcoBoost uses direct injection, variable cam timing and turbocharging to deliver plenty of usable performance and projected segment-leading fuel efficiency. A unique intake manifold and turbocharger housing enable it to deliver the performance Mustang drivers expect, with output of 310 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque.

With 300 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque on tap from the standard 3.7-liter V6 engine, even the most accessible Mustang delivers the performance customers expect.

Drivers will appreciate smoother shifts from the updated manual gearbox, while a reworked automatic transmission features new steering wheel-mounted shift paddles for drivers who want the choice between convenience and control.

Most nimble pony ever
When life throws drivers a curve, the all-new Mustang sets new handling benchmarks for the brand, delivering world-class dynamics and ride quality.

Mustang features all-new front and rear suspension systems. At the front, a new perimeter subframe helps to stiffen the structure while reducing mass, providing a better foundation for more predictable wheel control that benefits handling, steering and ride.

New double-ball-joint front MacPherson struts enable the use of larger, more powerful brakes. This is expected to be the best stopping Mustang yet, with three available brake packages.

At the rear is an all-new integral-link independent suspension. The geometry, springs, dampers and bushings have been specifically modified and tuned for this high-performance application. New aluminum rear knuckles help reduce unsprung mass for improved ride and handling.

Smarter than your average pony
The all-new Mustang features a significant amount of innovative technologies providing drivers with enhanced information, control and connectivity when they want it. From Intelligent Access with push-button start to SYNC® and MyKey® for every Mustang built, plus available Track Apps, MyColor gauges and a new Shaker Pro audio system, drivers can now customize their time behind the wheel.

The feeling of freedom and confidence Mustang instills in its drivers is amplified when they can take control of how the car behaves. On a twisty back road or a weekend track day, the driver can tap the toggle switches on the console to quickly adjust steering effort, engine response, and transmission and electronic stability control settings using the available selectable drive modes to create the perfect Mustang at any time.

The advanced new Ford-developed stability control system is tuned to maximize the car’s dynamic capabilities. When the time comes to turn up the wick at the track, Mustang GT includes standard launch control that enables drivers to achieve smooth, consistent starts every time.

When it’s time to back off and relax for the drive home, advanced driver-assist features including available Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert and adaptive cruise control can help ease the load, while SYNC AppLink lets drivers control their smartphone apps to listen to their favorite form of entertainment.
