2015 Ford Mustang GT: Grabby Brakes

December 18, 2014

2015 Ford Mustang GT

Not too long ago, I had the great fortune to write up the full test of the new 2015 Mustang. In the piece, I briefly noted that the test vehicle with the GT Performance package and Brembo brakes were unusually sensitive.

Now that we've got our bright orange Mustang in the long-term fleet I wanted to see if the grabby brakes were an anomaly or if they're all like that.

Yes, they seem to all be like that.

It's not that big of a deal though, and even less of a deal if you owned one and drove it daily. As we jump into a new car several times a week, we're the weirdos that have to adapt.

It takes a very light step to apply the brakes without causing a lurch forward. After just a few miles, most drivers should be able to acclimate. Everything else about the brakes is just fine. Despite the initial sensitivity, I am still able to roll to an imperceptible limo stop. If I get to put this Mustang on track someday, I'm sure the brake upgrade will pay dividends.
