I had the chance to pick up our 2015 Mustang GT this past weekend.
I wanted to do a write-up on on as a real first hand type of person who was honestly.... very against these cars. The body still has to grow on me... like a lot. LOL
Friday morning I caught a flight to NJ to pick up our new S550 Stang. Once I arrived, a local friend picked me up and took me over to Fullerton Ford. Once all the paperwork was finalized, we took the car and started our 1200 mile trip back here to Boca.
First thing is first.. Felt really good leaving the Newark airport and seeing the new World Trade Center Building
When I left the dealer, here is when the trip started:
Now before we left NJ, we stopped at my friends house to snap a couple pics with his 2014... as you can see... nothing looks the same LOL
Now before I get into my experiences with this car... PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOTHING LIKE ANY OTHER YEAR MUSTANG AND YOU CANNOT COMPARE IT TO ANYTHING
Now first thing I want to go over is the interior. The seats are like nothing else and I fit perfect in them. The material used is softer and the seat actually holds you tight. The steering wheel and switches are well placed and all over easy access. The center console is easy to navigate and broken down barney style.
Ill snap a picture today but to go into reverse now.... you have to push up on the shifter handle. No more pushing down.
The only issues I had was that it does not go low enough so your head is close to the ceiling. I'm not a tall person either. LOL The window switches are places more forward so you have to move your body to open or close the window unless you have long arms. The dead pedal is pretty much on top of the clutch pedal so you have to be careful when you go to rest your foot.
Besides that, I has no problems with this car on it's 20 hour drive back here. Fuel mileage was pretty good as she got 350-380 to a tank every full up. We had to stop 4 times for fuel (didnt completely empty each tank)
here are some pictures from the drive:
The model we picked was with 3.55 rear gears so for the MPH and RPM.. I was happy with the mileage
Once I arrived here Saturday evening, we put her right on the dyno and made some BONE STOCK dyno pulls. Maybe a 10minute cool down time.
Here are your results:
After this we pulled it off and tested out the linelock feature... She works. LOL
Now that it is a new week, we are going to spend time with her on the dyno and have a lot more fun with it.
I also wanted to add that after this drive. I love this car. Makes my 13 feel ancient too. I recommend them and on a scale of 1 - 10.. I give it an 8. This is all based off the ride. The looks... still has to grow on me.
