2015 Ford Mustang GT: Exhaust (With Video)
February 23, 2015
For the most part, I like our long-term 2015 Ford Mustang GT. It's bright orange, it's got a 435-horsepower V8 and a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission, but I wish it were louder. I have the same opinion as Mark when he wrote about the exhaust in an earlier update but here are a few videos of the Mustang's exhaust note so you can judge for yourself.
This is what the Mustang sounds like from the rear. Start up, a few revs up to about 4,000 rpm and drive off. In this video, I shift from first to second at around 5k.
The exhaust note is low and deep, but to me it doesn't scream, "American V8! Here I come!" Here's a second video from inside the car, same procedure, with the windows down where the exhaust seems much more muted.
I want to throw an exhaust on there that scares young children and shakes the foundation of small countries. Okay, so maybe that's a little excessive, but if this were my personal car I'd be shopping for aftermarket pipes right away.
