We were invited by Ford to attend the North American Auto Show here in Detroit along with 120 bloggers from over 10 countries around the world. So we flew in straight from our CES coverage in Las Vegas.
I was already shopping for a second car last December and have shortlisted the Mustang but held off on the purchase after I was told the new and redesigned 2015 Mustang will be released soon.
To add to the excitement, I was invited by Ford to visit NAIAS this year and the Mustang was on top of the list.
Ford is also celebrating 50 years of the Mustang and so this year, they created an entirely new look for the car (notice the more subdued design and more curves around the corner).
They now have 3 models — the 5.0L V8, the 3.7L V6 and a 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine — along with 10 new colors.
The new Mustang comes with Sync with MyFord Touch, a center touch screen with voice-activated control, rear radar sensors, cross-traffic alert (driver assist).
The Push Button Start gives you seemless access as long as you have the key, you can unlock the car and start the engine without taking the key out of your pocket.
In the Philippines, the Mustang 3.7L V6 Premium sells for Php2,499,000 while the 5.0L V8 GT Premium is at Php2,899,000.
We’re hoping that once the 2015 models arrive, they will stick to this pricing and slash a few hundred grand off of the 2013 models.
