2015 test drive
#1
Today I test drove 2 2015 stangs as I'm considering buying one as a daily driver. I drive 95 miles (round trip) to our main campus 2-3 times a week. Trying to save in gas mileage on my truck and so I'm looking at the Ecoboost as an option (had to test a 5.0 while there). Let me say it was a fun little car to drive.

Took my car up there to show I was a serious mustang person. They spent more time talking about mine. [Image: f1f86d9c9f165b63b12bb1afc307c29c.jpg]

I have a friend who just traded in his F-150 for an Eco-boost 2015 Mustang (black-out edition). Good-lookin' car and he loves it.

Good luck with the decision - just don't leave your Mach 1 there when you're done making the deal. Wink

I was asked several times if I was going to trade it in and I said only if they're giving me three. :p

I went and test drove a 5.0 back in December, man it was fun. It was bright yellow with the performance package and a 6 speed. The clutch took a little getting used to, but it was smooth after a couple stop lights! How was the Eco-Boost motor?

Both were fun to drive and yes the clutch took a little getting use to. I was a little jerky in first but smoothed out in the other five.

I was surprised and impressed with the Eco-boost. To be honest I was thinking 6 cylinder when I went up there but the performance of the Eco-boost was better. It is rated 310 horses compared to 305 for the 6 and the torque is 320 lb-ft compared to 280 lb-ft for the 6. All around it was a pretty impressive drive and the engine was very responsive to my foot! The gas mileage was also a big selling point for me. More power and better gas mileage.

I have test driven all 3 but the Eco and the 6 were Automatics. That is all they had at the time. Last month I drove a 5.0 with 6 speed and it also took me a little bit to get used to the clutch.

It is inexcusable for scientists to torture animals; let them make their experiments on journalists and politicians.

They didn't have an Eco manual on the lot but have one I want at another of their dealerships. I drove an Eco that was an automatic and a 5.0 that was a manual. I purely drove the 5.0 to test the manual transmission since it is the same one for both. Honestly the cruising and ride of the Eco was better than the 5.0 and I'm sure it is because of weight.

One nonnegotiable is the manual transmission as I already own a pretty red stang with auto.

Ya know, in looking at the old and new side by side, the old red one isn't so big...and I kinda still like the red one better. Both are good looking cars though.
