Ford Mustang GT Gets New Power Packages

The 435 horsepower under the hood of the new Ford Mustang GT is already enough to turn heads, and when paired with the superior handling, you’ll find that the GT is already an incredible specimen of a vehicle. There is enough power in the standard engine of the GT to knock you back, but there is enough power to keep you in control. Straight from the start, fans of performance cars were blown away with the power inside the Mustang GT, but Ford, always looking to impress, recently announced the release of three additional performance packages that will be available for the Ford Mustang.

2016-Ford-Mustang-GT-engine-02

Power packs, the first of the power packages, is a stage package of parts and engine tunes that will work on cars from 2015 to 2017 model years. Power pack one is a basic package that features a K&N high-flow air filter and an ECU tune, which increases the horsepower by 13 and boosts the torque by 16 lb-ft. The power pack one also grants the driver an increase in low-end torque as well, providing an additional 40 lb-ft when the engine reaches 1500 rpm.

The other two packages come with features that were lifted from the Shelby GT350, with their own individual tuning calibrations and different parts. The power pack 2 features the cold-air intake from the GT350, plus an 87-mm throttle body. This brings the driver a 21 horsepower increase and a 24 lb-ft increase in torque. The power pack 3 adds all the features of the power pack 2, plus the intake manifold of the GT350. This brings the driver 37 more horses under the hood and five more lb-ft of peak torque. When the engine hits 7500 rpm, look out for 60 more horsepower.

WALDORF, MD, 2014 – Fifty years after debuting one of the world’s most popular cars, Ford is marking the milestone by revealing a Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition. Created to honor five decades of Mustang heritage, only 1,964 examples of the 50 Year Limited Edition will ever be built when it goes on sale this fall.

“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,” said Greg Basiliko, General Manager of Waldorf Ford.

Celebrating 50 Years of Ford Mustang

Based on the all-new 2015 Mustang GT fastback with performance pack, the 50 Year Limited Edition is designed to provide customers with outstanding performance and a unique appearance that will be instantly recognizable on the road. The only options for the 50 Year Limited Edition are the choice of two exclusive colors and a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

50 years of inspiration
“The new Mustang blends a muscular, contemporary shape with design cues that define it as quintessentially Mustang,” added Greg Basiliko. “The 50 Year Limited Edition adds details that set it apart from other Mustangs, while hearkening back to the 1965 original.”

The only two available colors are Wimbledon White, like Mustang serial No. 0001 that was first sold to Capt. Stanley Tucker in April 1964, or Kona Blue. Both are exclusive to this limited-edition car.

“Chrome trim was much more prevalent on cars in the 1960s than it is today, so we added some discreet highlights for the grille, side glass and tri-bar taillamps,” said Greg Basiliko. “The darker Kona Blue provides a particularly striking contrast against the chrome.”

Chrome bezels surrounding the base of each of the three taillamp blades take inspiration from the original 1962 design proposal by Gale Halderman that became the basis for the production model that debuted in 1964. The three individual lamps on each side of that design were combined into a single tri-bar lamp cluster for production, but the original concept has returned five decades on. The Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition will be the only 2015 model with the large faux gas cap badge on the rear fascia, with 50 Years added to the GT designation.

Another visual element that won’t be found on any other Mustang is the louvered rear quarter-windows. Unlike the external louvers on the quarter-windows of the 1965 fastback, the new windows are comprised of layered sheets of glass built with a construction technique uniquely developed for this car.

Unique cockpit experience 
From behind the wheel, drivers will know they are driving a very special car. The aluminum trim panel that spans the double-brow instrument panel gets an axel spin finish different from other 2015 Mustangs, plus a special serialized 50 Year Limited Edition badge on the passenger side. Each badge will be individually etched at Flat Rock Assembly Plant where Mustang is built.

The limited-edition is the only 2015 Mustang with a cashmere-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel. The stitching is also used on the instrument panel, shifter boot, center armrest, door inserts and seats. The seats feature exclusive two-tone cashmere and black leather upholstery, and the Mustang 50 Year logo on the seat backs.

Limited-edition cars will be equipped with loop-carpet floor mats with cashmere stitching and suede binding not available on other Mustangs.

A showpiece meant to be driven

Powered by the upgraded 5.0-liter V8 engine delivering more than 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque, every 50 Year Limited Edition will be equipped with the Mustang GT performance pack that includes massive six-piston Brembo front brakes and 19-inch alloy wheels with high-performance Y-speed-rated Pirelli P-Zero summer tires.

2015-ford-mustang-50th-anniversary-edition-photo-589638-s-520x318 - Copy

The 19-inch alloy wheels feature a unique Y-spoke design inspired by the chromed steel wheels that were offered on the original Mustang 50 years ago. The front wheels are 9.0 inches wide with 255/40R tires, while the staggered rear wheels are 9.5 inches wide with 275/40R tires.

The 50 Year Limited Edition is the only 2015 Mustang that will be available with a combination of an automatic transmission and the performance pack. When equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission, the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition will get a limited-slip rear differential with a 3.55:1 final-drive. Customers who opt for the six-speed manual will get a Torsen differential with a 3.73:1 final-drive ratio.

2015-ford-mustang-50th-anniversary-edition-photo-589636-s-520x318

The 50 Year Limited Edition car will be among the first 2015 Mustangs built when production begins later this year. Each of the 1,964 50 Year Limited Edition Mustangs will get a unique owner’s guide in a leather portfolio with the 50 Year badge on the outside.

“We wanted to provide our most dedicated fans with the emotion of the original Mustang in a 21st century car,” said Greg Basiliko. “With this 50 Year Limited Edition, I believe we have accomplished our goal.”

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang Celebration that will be held at Waldorf Ford on April 17th, 2014 from 5:30 pm to 8 pm we thought it would be great to highlight one of our Top Selling Mustang Sales Consultants, Clarence Ball!  Originally from Maryland, Clarence has been with Waldorf Ford for over 13 years.  Clarence has always been an active member at the dealership and in the community.  He has volunteered at many events including multiple Mustang Shows just like the 50th Anniversary of Mustang coming up this Thursday, April 17th, 2014.  His love for automobiles and especially the Ford Mustang shows. During his time at Waldorf Ford he has sold hundreds of Ford Mustangs!

IMG_6156IMG_6152

When we sat down with Clarence, we wanted to find out what made The Ford Mustang so special to him and to compare it to other Ford’s.   “The Ford Mustang is a sports car that has an aggressive look.  The Mustang’s look makes it stand apart from all other muscle cars in the market.”  When asked what his favorite mustang was he stated “It’s difficult to pick just one mustang.  I have several.  One of my favorite vintage mustang is The Bullitt Mustang that Steve McQueen drove in The 1968 Movie, Bullitt.

Bullitt_posterThe Bullitt’s clean lines, color options, and upgrades (including being 10 to 15 Miles per hour faster than the Mustang GT) embody the true spirit of the Ford Mustang.

BULLITT-1

As far as current Mustang models Clarence loves the 2014 Ford Mustang GT 500.  The reason for him is because it’s the fastest production mustang ever but he also reminded us that he is also a huge fan of 2009 and up Mustangs as well because the body style had changed.

We asked Clarence about his thoughts on the 2015 Ford Mustang he stated “With the 2015 Ford Mustang upgrades in technology it will be extremely competitive with other sports cars on the market.”

IMG_6153IMG_6150

Clarence thinks that the 50th Anniversary of Ford Mustang is an important event.  Whether you’re a Ford Mustang lover or not it’s important to learn about and celebrate this iconic American Muscle Car.  “People should come out to Waldorf Ford on April 17th, 2014 from 5:30 am to 8:00 pm to our 50th Anniversary Party to celebrate and take a walk down memory lane” said Clarence Ball.

Ford Mustang celebra sus 50 años en el Empire State Building

DEARBORN, Michigan, 28 de marzo 2014-Dos de los iconos más reconocibles del mundo se están uniendo el 16 y 17 de abril, cuando el nuevo Ford Mustang 2015 convertible estará en exhibición en la plataforma de observación del Empire State Building de New York. La exhibición  – replicando la misma hazaña de hace casi 50 años – coincide con la celebración mundial de los 50 años desde que Mustang debutó en la Feria Mundial de 1964 en New York.

10007438_10152372643254343_358334748_n

“New York es una de las ciudades más grandes del mundo, y es el lugar donde la historia de Ford Mustang comenzó hace 50 años,” dijo Mark Fields, director de operaciones de Ford. “Estamos encantados de visitar el hito arquitectónico que ha sido el corazón de la ciudad de Manhattan durante 83 años con la nueva generación del automóvil que es el alma de Ford Motor Company.”

Llevar el automóvil a 86 pisos sobre las calles densamente pobladas del centro de Manhattan no es una tarea simple. No existe grúa portátil que pueda llegar al observatorio del piso 86, y la imponente torre encima de la cubierta relativamente estrecha hace que la entrega por helicóptero sea imposible. Eso deja a los ascensores como la única opción viable.

Cuando el Empire State Building se inauguró en 1931 como edificio, entonces – más alto del mundo – un título que mantuvo durante casi 40 años – nadie habría imaginado intentar transportar un automóvil hacia arriba en los ascensores originales. Pero en 1965, un prototipo Mustang convertiblefue cortado en tres secciones principales más el parabrisas de manera que las secciones encajarían en los ascensores.

El Mustang 2015 es aproximadamente siete pulgadas más largo y cuatro pulgadas más ancho que su antecesor, haciendo la tarea de transportar hacia arriba aún más difícil. Trabajando a partir de los datos de ingeniería informática, los miembros del equipo que preparan el automóvil de la exhibición han encontrado los lugares adecuados para hacer los cortes de manera que todo se puede cargar en bastidores a medida que se puede rodar hacia dentro de los ascensores.

2015mustang3

Una vez que todo está sin embalaje y transportado hasta 86 pisos, los técnicos tendrán menos de seis horas para volver a montar las secciones en un automóvil completo que estará en exhibición encima de Manhattan.

“Es un privilegio para celebrar el nuevo Ford Mustang, reunir a nuestras dos marcas icónicas, y hacer una nueva historia con Ford,” dijo el Presidente de la Junta Directiva, Presidente y CEO de Empire State Realty Trust, Anthony E. Malkin. “El Empire State Building y el Ford Mustang son ambos innovadores históricos – hoy en día, como en el pasado.”

Los visitantes a la plataforma de observación del Empire State Building pueden ver el nuevo convertible Mustang durante 54 horas de 8 a.m. a 2 p.m., Abril 16-17.

Ford Mustang 2015

El nuevo Mustang es la versión más avanzada hasta ahora del pony car icónico, ofreciendo más avanzada tecnología de asistencia al conductor que cualquier otro automóvil en su clase. El nuevo y elegante diseño de Mustang fastback y convertible está respaldado por un desempeño de clase mundial a partir de una gama de motores disponibles, incluyendo un nuevo EcoBoost®  de 2.3 litros turbo y un V8 de 5.0 litros actualizado con más de 420 caballos de fuerza. El nuevo Mustang sale a la venta a finales de este año. Además de los sistemas de conectividad de vanguardia, Mustang ofrece características de aplicaciones de pista disponibles, control de lanzamiento y más.
