Saddle up! The newly designed 2015 Mustang GT Convertible is still the hottest thoroughbred in the sporty class.

Saturday, April 16th, 2016

Mustang. The name says it all— unbridled power… quick as the wind… and incredibly nimble on any terrain. This latest edition, from a long line of pedigree winners, is leaner and meaner… and, as expected, is decked out with the hottest technology trappings and creature comforts— many as standard features. Unmistakably, this pony is sleeker than the last stable of Mustangs, with a wider track on chassis that’s primed for the type of powerful, spirited driving that makes you want to hit the open road and never back off on the accelerator. The new Mustang GT Convertible is comfortably cool, versatile to drive, and designed with a fresh look and style that will definitely turn heads. You’ve got to check it out in person.

Ford Celebrates 50 Years of Mustangs at Woodward Dream Cruise

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

50 years of MustangsOver the years, the Woodward Dream Cruise has become the single largest classic car event in the United States. And, this year, it was even bigger.

The Woodward Dream Cruise encompasses nine metro Detroit communities along 16 miles of Woodward Avenue, including Ferndale, which hosts the iconic Mustang Alley. This year marks not only 50 years of Mustangs, but also the 20th anniversary of the Dream Cruise, meaning Mustang Alley had to be the biggest and best yet.

Normally, registration for Mustang Alley is limited to 800 cars, but this year, more than 1,100 Mustangs registered for the event. To make room for all the cars, Ford moved its outdoor showroom to the west side of Woodward Avenue. Mustangs from all 50 years were represented at the show and Ford even raffled off a one-of-a-kind 2015 Ford Mustang 50 Years Limited Edition convertible. The winning ticket number is P17135, so if you bought a ticket, check to see if you won.

Check out the slide show on MLive to see pictures of some of the awesome Mustang at the event.

2015 Ford Mustang Reveals its Secret

Monday, April 28th, 2014

Doing the perfect burnout every time is something that many Mustang owners aspire too. Now, if you get the 2015 Ford Mustang GT, you will be able to impress your friends and warm up your wheels every time you want.

Ford has finally revealed the Mustang’s secret that it hinted at last year, and calls the feature Line Lock. It causes the front brakes to hold firm while releasing the rears, creating the perfect burnout. However, if you’re a purist and prefer to do things the old fashioned way, you can always disable this feature.

It also comes with a bit of a warning. While Line Lock is standard, it is only meant to be used at the drag strip where drivers use it to warm up the wheels. Ford also warns that if you race your Mustang, it will void your warranty.

Check out this video for some sweet Mustang burnout action.

Give us a call at Hassett Automotive and we’ll tell you when you can place your order for the 2015 Ford Mustang GT.

Ford Unveils All-New Mustang

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

The Mustang is, without much argument, not only Ford’s most iconic car but also one of the most iconic muscle cars in the United States. As such, releasing an all-new model for the Mustang tends to carry a lot more weight and anticipation than usual.

But Ford has finally lifted the veil, turning the page and opening a new chapter in the life of the all-American pony car. The new Ford Mustang, featuring more performance and technology than ever before, is here.

With a lower, wider stance and reduced roof height, the Mustang has taken on a more aggressive edge as well as a sleeker profile. The cockpit features better craftsmanship than ever with an aviation-inspired design, providing improved ergonomics, tactile switches, and large, clear instrumentation for the driver.

Under the hood, an all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine joins an upgraded V6 and V8, all of which provide the buyer’s choice of balance between raw power and efficiency, ranging between 300 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque and 420 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque.

Other upgrades include improved all-new suspension systems, a reworked automatic transmission, more powerful brakes, and more. Come learn everything about the Mustang at Hassett Automotive.

FORD RESPONSIBLE FOR EXCITING NEW “RIDE-SWAPPING” TREND!

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

From city streets to suburban highways, Americans are trading in their Tahoes and Toyotas
for greater driving quality and satisfaction during Ford’s “Swap Your Ride” sales event.

Years ago, parents of older teenagers used to worry about “how they’re going to keep them down on the farm after they’ve seen ‘Par-ee’?”, also known as Paris. After all, your average farm offers considerably less glamour and excitement.

Today, Ford Motor Company has both domestic and foreign competitors asking the same question. Statistical results from Ford’s on-going “Swap Your Ride” sales event are showing a large number of people eager to give up their current vehicle once they’ve driven a comparable Ford model.

“I thought I loved my Toyota Camry,” explained Scott L. from Merrick, NY, who attended the Ford ‘Swap Your Ride’ event at Hassett Ford on Sunrise Highway in nearby Wantagh; “but after driving a new Ford Fusion for just a few minutes, I couldn’t wait to swap.” (more…)
