2015 Ford Mustang GT: Bigger Space for Smaller Items
April 15, 2015
There's no question that Ford made big changes to the interior of the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. It's obvious as soon as you open the door. Okay, so they made it look a lot nicer. But how much better does it function?
When I sat down in the driver's seat and could easily put my wallet in the door pocket I realized, "yep, they made real improvements here."
The old car's door pockets were very narrow, with only a sliver of an opening that could fit a wallet or one of our fuel logs. The new pocket is significantly deeper and easily accommodates my completely pretentious carbon-fiber wallet. I could even fit a sunglasses case in there, something impossible with the old car.
There's also quite a bit of hidden space to the left of the driver's door pocket that I didn't notice until recently, so if you want to put something back there and forget it for the duration of your ownership, you're all set.
Back in the day, I felt the 2011 Mustang's center armrest bin was deep, but not all that large and situated too far back. The armrest bin in the new car, although still placed rearward, seems larger and more useful to me. It also dispenses with the rather goofy opening mechanism.
The glove box in the new car is still small, but the useable space is more defined with fewer odd bumps.
Overall I'd say the Ford gang did a good job with the improvements. More than anything, I'm glad my wallet now has plenty of room to spread out, if you know what I mean.
