Ford Mustang - Production

Ford Division today announced that the 2005 Ford Mustang ? an all-new version of America?s best-selling sports car ? will be priced at $19,410 for the V-6 Coupe. The V-8 powered Ford Mustang GT will begin at $24,995, making it the most affordable 300-horsepower sports car in the industry.

Mustang has thrived for 40 years by staying true to the basic formula established in 1964: great design and affordable performance. The new 2005 Ford Mustang continues that tradition with an all-new platform and clean-sheet design that makes it faster, safer, more agile and better looking than ever.

"Today, we?re delivering on the promise that we made to Mustang and sports car aficionados earlier this year," said Steve Lyons, Ford Division president. "We?re delivering real value with a well-equipped 2005 Mustang V-6 Coupe for under $20,000 and the V-8 Mustang GT for under $25,000, which is quite fitting for a car that is unparalleled in so many ways."

The Mustang is part of the most aggressive rollout of new cars, trucks and SUVs in Ford history. By this fall, Ford Division dealers will field a showroom where more than 60 percent of the vehicles are all new or significantly freshened. In addition to Mustang, new products include the Ford F-150 and F-Series Super Duty pickups, Freestyle, Five Hundred, Focus, Escape, Escape Hybrid and Ford GT.

All of these designs are among the more than 65 new products Ford, Lincoln and Mercury are introducing in North America during the next five years. Next year, Ford will add the Ford Mustang Convertible, which will be unveiled in January at the 2005 Los Angeles Auto Show.
