Trying to decide. Cost and mileage is very similar.

2015 is a base manual and the 2014 is Premium w/ Nav.

I don't like cloth in a Mustang, but the '15 IMO is all around better and to be honest I don't even use the Nav in mine..phone is easier.

Now if the '14 had a glass roof and TP or Brembos or Recaro's I'd get that.

Sorry not much help you really can't go wrong.

I haven't driven the new gen but I'm not a fan of bells and whistles so premium ain't something I'd be interested in. If the new suspension is better (which folks say it is) I'd pick the 2015.

I would have picked up a newer gt if I hadn't found my 14gt with the panaramic roof. I told my wife the only way I was upgrading was going to be if I found a 13 or 14 with glass roof or I would wait a few years and pick up a newer gen since I was coming from a 14 v6 that I loved. I test drove the 15gt and don't feel like I'm missing anything as the ride felt the same to me. Of course I wasn't carving any corners or anything like that so that's not really a great example. There's also the fact that even though I like the way the newer gen looks I'm still in love with the 11-14 body style.

15. I prefer cloth over leather.


Pick your poison.

performance wise, 15 GT for sure. IIRC, s550 GT with performance pack can beat S197 boss302 on track. What's more can we expect?

I don't need NAV built in the car, a smartphone is better way to go.
As for cloth seat, you can always get leather cover for them, either OEM or aftermarket.

Id go the 15 route and upgrade the seats. The interior is a step up and I really noticed a change in the driving experience compared to my 11 GT. If you get the 15 be ready to change the tires or do a couple suspension mods to get rid of the wheel hop. Really bugged me when I first got the car but went to 315 in the rear and some steeda parts and it's gone.


If you are building a drag set up I'd get the 14 for the solid rear axle but the IRS set up right is better for daily and road course in my opinion.

15 base GT.

I had a 14 GT Premium Convertible, and now have a 17 GT Premium PP. The 15+'s are better all around cars at any level. I'd see if you can find a 15 GT base with Performance Pack in your budget.

get the 15 base and spend on mods. I had the bit of a quandary myself and so glad I got the 15. of course I also went with the bells and whistles as well with the 50th anniversary package as got a good deal.

I have a '14 V6 PP for a daily driver. I like the look of the newer models, but prefer the '14 because it does NOT have a touchscreen.

I had a base GT/TrakPak w/Recaros and it was a great car after I spent money on suspension/exhaust.
Early on when I thought about getting a new 15 I went out and drove a couple GT's, one that was an exact copy of my Race Red 14 and a Black GT Premium.
Even with all of the suspension work on my 14 the 15 GTPP car felt more planted when carving corners and just an all around better handling car for my tastes.
If I hadn't have bought an ATS-V I would have probably gotten the 15GT PP...for what it's worth.

How do you like the ATS-V?

The car is truly fantastic...it's like a small 4 door Corvette and Mag Ride is something they should put as an option in the Mustang...other than the GT350.
They are for 2018 I'm pretty sure

My dad says "the 15+'s are too wide & low, & I like small asses!"


The... ...always gracious.
