2015 Ford Mustang GT: Ride Height Makes Me Happy

by Travis Langness, Social Media Editor on January 4, 2016

2015 Ford Mustang GT

If I had my way, most of the cars in our fleet would be lowered. Put some new wheels on the SRT8 and move it closer to the ground. Our M235i is cool, but put an exhaust on it and drop it, then suddenly you've got an infinitely cooler BMW. The Miata is great too, but who doesn't want wider tires and a lower stance on a car that does so well in the canyons?

It's about function first, but form doesn't hurt either and our long-term 2015 Ford Mustang GT is now a great example of the two living side-by-side.

The upgraded suspension is stiffer than stock, but feels better under cornering loads and it doesn't rattle the brains out of your head on bumpy roads. And it looks great. With about a one-finger gap all the way around, the Mustang stands out.

Instead of the way-too-tall, modern muscle-car look, it looks like a car that means business. This is no V6 rental car. I'm an adamant supporter of modifying cars to personalize them and this is a series of modifications I'd certainly do if a Mustang GT were in my personal garage.
