  • All-new Ford Mustang offers 15 new or segment-exclusive features enabling drivers to personalize and maximize the driving experience
  •  Class-exclusive driver-assist features include available radar-based adaptive cruise control and collision warning and Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert

DEARBORN, Mich., March 24, 2014 –The all-new 2015 Ford Mustang offers more advanced technology than any car in its class, enabling drivers to personalize and optimize the feel and functionality of the car to match driving conditions and their driving style. A customer would have to spend thousands more on a premium German sports coupe to get all of the technology features available in Mustang.

“While Mustang unquestionably has always been about the ride, we can now do a lot of cool things with technology to let the true personality of the car come through the driver’s fingers and backside,” said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer. “Everything we added to Mustang is designed to let its drivers personalize the car to their tastes and wants to get the most out of it no matter how or where they drive.”

Personalized control
Mustang has the first application of Ford’s new stability control system that provides improved performance on high-traction surfaces. Ford’s unique Curve Control is also included with Mustang for the first time, helping to slow the car if the driver goes into a corner with too much speed. The newly available selectable drive mode system builds on that foundation to give Mustang drivers even more control over how the car feels. Read the rest of this entry »

Road Test: 2011 Ford Mustang V-6 Convertible

Text / Images: Iain Shankland

My first experience with a Ford Mustang was way back in the summer of 1969 when a friend of my Mum had one. She dropped the top and I can still feel the sun beating down on my head and my hair getting messed up with the wind… ahh memories! I was only 7 years old, but I still remember it like it was last year… I nagged my Dad for ages to go out and buy one, but he was sticking to driving around in a 1965 Ford Galaxy wagon that was as long as an aircraft carrier. Fast forward to 1978 and we’d just moved to Canada – fresh off the plane and what do I try and get my dad to buy? A 1978 Ford Mustang – I knew he wouldn’t keep it for long, and I would either inherit it or buy it from him. Alas, he bought another land yacht – which I inherited two years later. I still haven’t gotten around to buying my own Mustang yet, but at least I got to drive a 2011 convertible version for a week this past summer.

Road Test: 2011 Ford Taurus SHO

2011 Ford Taurus SHO

The Taurus SHO has always been about subtlety and stealth – no need to draw undue attention from the long arm of the law (or Revenue Generation Force as I like to call them). To that end the new 2010/2011 Taurus SHO follows the same formula that first made it desirable back in 1989.  After a break of about 10 years or so, it’s back and it ain’t anything like the original once you get under the skin.

Previously the SHO (pronounced “show” by everyone but Ford) came with a unique Super High Output Yamaha engine (3.0 Litre V-6 with 164Kw (220 hp), 5-speed manual), the new version however, is all Ford – Powered by a Super High Output (SHO) 3.5L EcoBoost twin-turbocharged engine (272 Kw (365 hp), 6-speed auto), and it continues to build on the legacy of the original discreet performance-oriented sports sedan … but then it turns up the heat!
