2015 Ford Mustang GT: Now That's What I Call Music 5.0

by Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor on September 3, 2015

2015 Ford Mustang GT

Step one of our performance enhancing campaign on the 2015 Ford Mustang GT is done and I am happy with the results. The new exhaust sounds great, replacing the far-too-quiet stock pipes.

Even better, it doesn't sound too obnoxious. It reminds me of our old long-term Challenger in some ways. A low, smooth burble at idle, a mechanical growl with some pedal and a fierce bellow when it's floored. The throttle overrun also sounds great and it doesn't have any startling backfires or crackles like our dearly departed Jag.

I do, however, expect our fuel economy to take a hit. I find myself holding gears and revs longer to enjoy the music.

In a somewhat related note, here's my short list of the greatest sounding cars I've heard/driven in person:

Porsche Carrera GT
Jaguar F-Type R
Chevrolet Corvette 427 (2013)
Ford Mustang Boss 302
Pretty much anything in the TransAm class at the Monterey Motorsports Reunion
