2015 Ford Mustang: Great Shifter

January 6, 2015

2015 Ford Mustang

Our long-term 2015 Ford Mustang's shifter is great. Despite being responsible for corralling (har har) all the torque this big V8 belts out, it can be flicked from gate to gate with ease. The gates are very clearly defined and throws are reasonably short. It moves fluidly but doesn't feel flimsy — actually, it feels more positive than the shifter in our 2014 Corvette Stingray.

There's just a hint of notchiness in our (brand-new) long-term car that I didn't notice in the cars on the press launch. Maybe it's a break-in thing. We'll see if it changes over time. 

I was never a fan of the stupid cue-ball short-shifter that was found in Shelby Mustangs. The one in the 2015 Mustang is not only more pleasant to use, it's faster through the gates than that high-effort silliness. Well done, Ford.
