Ford is offering Mustang fans a chance to profess their love for the iconic Pony Car, and grab the keys to one in the process. The Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] will give away a 2015 Mustang to one lucky fan through the 2014 BET Awards #MustangAndMe contest. Entrants must submit a 60-second video explaining how they "embody the Mustang life." The winner will be revealed during the broadcast of the 2014 BET Awards on June 26.
Anyone looking to enter the contest can visit its webpage between now and 12:00 p.m. EST on June 3 to upload a video. Fans can also vote for their favorite submissions.
Everyone else will have to pay for their Mustangs. The 2015 model will have a base price of $24,425, just $1,090 more than the $23,335 sticker of a comparable 2014 model. Considering the numerous styling and technology upgrades that come with the new model, it's not a bad deal.
That base price buys a 3.7-liter V-6, but the 2015 Mustang will also be offered with a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder and 5.0-liter V-8. Ford hasn't released official pricing for these powerplants, but a recent leak shows that the Mustang EcoBoost will start at $25,995, while the V8 Mustang GT will start at $32,925.
Ford still hasn't released final performance specs for the 2015 Mustang lineup, but it promises the V-6 will produce more than 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, the EcoBoost four more than 305 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque, and the V-8 more than 420 hp and 390 lb-ft.
Topping the range for the 2015 Mustang's showroom debut will be a 50 Year Limited Edition model. Only 1,964 will be made at a reported base price of $46,995, and they're most likely already sold out.
