Since late last year, a wild horse temptress has been wooing hordes of followers. A creation celebrating its 50th birthday in 2014, the Ford Mustang has started the year promising a brand-new level of sports car performance. Accented with a bold, new look reflective of the future rather than the past that guided some previous generation models, the 2015 Mustang preserves the virtues that made the original pony car a dream machine. For 2015, an all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder powerplant joins a V-6 and the Mustang GT’s 435-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8 engine. With eight months of auto shows and special appearances assembled in locales (including the top of the Empire State Building) wetting the appetites of eager buyers or simply enthusiasts, Flat Rock, Michigan is now ready for the distributions of a vehicle a half-century in the making.

The home of the Mustang since 2005, Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant is beginning production of the vehicle’s latest iteration. Following a retooling and a $555 million U.S. investment into the facility, the Mustang’s production hub has begun manufacturing the 2015 coupe and convertible model. These first vehicles will be sent to dealerships across the United States as well as Canada in time for autumn sales. The Flat Rock Assembly Plant will also have some added work ahead resulting in the Mustang’s expanded reach moving forward. Starting next year, the Ford Mustang will be released in wide global market coverage in 120 countries including several right-side drive regions.

In addition to the production of the 2015 Mustang in Flat Rock, Ford Motor Company is also busy prepping manufacturing facilities in Kansas City, Missouri and Dearborn, Michigan for their latest top truck. Those locations will be producing the all-new F-150, slated to be Ford’s most revolutionary pickup truck design in a long time.

Pricing for the 2015 Ford Mustang will start at $23,600 for United States customers. The retail sticker in Canada is still being withheld ahead of the pony car’s fall release.
