2015 Ford Mustang GT: Will the Television Fit?
by Travis Langness, Social Media Editor on December 31, 2015
It's not some cool road bike or a big carpet cleaner, but last week's cargo in our 2015 Ford Mustang GT was definitely precious. It was my mother's Christmas gift, a 40-inch television. Wrapped, tagged and primed for placement under the tree, the TV was ready for transport. But first I had to squeeze it in the Mustang's trunk.
Trunk space alone wouldn't cut it, no matter which angle the TV was positioned at. If the subwoofer weren't in the way and the TV were half as tall, it might've fit behind the rear wheel arches, but this bad boy had to be laid down on its side. I didn't want the TV sitting upright in the back seat — in case of hard braking, I didn't want it falling forward — so I laid down the rear seats and placed the big box on its back.
This left the TV in plain sight and I felt uncomfortable leaving it unattended in parking lots, so this meant no extended stops along the way. If I'd brought the TV home in the Mustang, I would've gone straight home to avoid the possibility of a break-in. With a few other bags wedged in around it, the TV stayed right where it was supposed to and all the pixels were in perfect working order when we delivered it to my mother that night. We got to watch the basketball game in crisp HD on Christmas morning.
