Whether they want one or not, it’s the one detail that Australian performance enthusiasts have been waiting for in 2015: local pricing for Ford’s new Mustang.

Today is the day, and Ford has confirmed that fans looking to slide into the new pony car will hand over $44,990 before on-roads for the 2.3 litre four-cylinder turbo coupe.

A six-speed manual transmission is standard, but an optional six-speed auto will be offered at a $2500 premium.

Stepping up to the 5.0 litre V8 coupe will require a greater investment at $54,990 before on-roads, but there can be little doubt that Ford will have no shortage of takers.

Here’s a couple of quick comparison points on pricing across Ford's local performance offerings in recent years: $56,990 and $71,290 for the 315kW FPV GS and 335kW GT when their last updates landed in 2011, and $77,900 for the extra-special 351kW GT-F.

Perhaps most importantly in the ‘here and now’, though, is the reborn 335kW XR8 sedan, priced from $54,690.

With the FPV brand now dissolved, the 303kW V8 Mustang becomes a neat companion to the four-door XR8 sedan, while the 233kW 4cyl turbo model represents a neat two-door alternative to the 270kW $42,990 Falcon XR6 Turbo.

“With such sharp pricing, we’re signaling that there’s a new Ford performance car coming and we intend to grab our rightful share of enthusiasts who value style, technology, performance and the history that the Mustang name brings,” Ford's Graeme Whickman said today.

“It’s a technologically advanced car without forgetting the heritage that has inspired Ford customers for generations."

The new coupe will hit Australia later this year, although exact timing is still to be confirmed.
