A recent announcement by the Ford Motor Company has revealed that the automaker has sold over 8.000 units of its 2015 Mustang in the month of November. This is the best ever November the company has had since 2006 as far as sales of the pony car is concerned.
According to information put up by Erich Merkle, the sales analyst at Ford, once the final tally will come in, sales of Mustang in November, 2014 will most likely turn out to be 50% more than the car’s sales in November, 2013.
Merkle also informed that sales of the Mustang increased in all major regions in the United States including the Northeast and Great Lakes that got severely hit by snow storms recently.
The Mustang we are discussing about is a vehicle meant for the 2015 model year. In the month of November, it saw the first complete month of sales.
Reports are suggesting that last month Ford dealers on an average had only 8-day supply for the 2015 Mustang; such a statement in the automobile industry clearly denotes that the car is question is actually sold out. For those who don’t know: typically, on an average, a vehicle model mostly sits at the dealer’s lot for a round 50 to 60 days.
Ford might have made some changes in its new Mustang, but it has still kept the vehicle’s price pretty affordable; the new car is cheap enough to be the first car of a college grad. The starting price of the 2015 Mustang is just $23,600.
This price tag is quite amazing as the vehicle carries enough features to offer stiff competition to luxury sport coupes launched by automobile manufacturing giants such as Lexus, BMW and Audi. Those luxury coupes are priced around $50,000, which makes them more than two times costlier than the base model of the new Mustang.
Additionally, right now if you compare Ford Mustang’s traditional rivals Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro with the car’s 2015 model, you will suddenly find the Dodge and Chevrolet creations are outdated.
As many as 50 years have passed since the first model of the Mustang was launched in 1965; the newest model of the vehicle seems to be succeeding in maintaining the legacy of popularity its predecessors imposed on it, but with the perfect blend of trend and tradition. The 2015 Ford Mustang has the perfect formula to be a popular pony car of the 21st century.
