Pony up more cash

The Ford Mustang will cost more in 2016 – if you can get your hands on one. The Mustang now starts at $45,990, making it $1000 more for EcoBoost models and $2500 extra for the V8. Ford Australia is busy fulfilling the 4000 orders for customers who’d already put their money down ahead of the price rise and won’t pay the new premium. Ford Australia boss Graeme Whickman said the Mustang’s popularity, which sees it sold out here until late 2016, and a hedge against the US dollar, prompted the price increase.
