As Mustang enthusiasts, we all love the performance of the new 2015 Mustang. However, the engineering feats accomplished by Team Mustang go well beyond that, as at least one M6G member can attest to.
While the 2015 Mustang has yet to be rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, its predecessor platform has earned four-star overall safety ratings.
You can be assured the new Mustang, with its additional bracing and more safety features and equipment will earn similarly high marks for safety.
Mustang6G member “GT” was involved in a catastrophic accident recently caused by a drunk driver, only eight days after he had taken delivery of his Magnetic 2015 Mustang GT PP.
The accident occurred around 9:30 at night on a three lane major roadway while he was driving in the center lane that was arching left. The drunk driver was in the left lane and could not negotiate the curve properly, smashing into his front fender and pushing him into the right guard rail. Upon hitting the guard rail at highway speed, the Mustang flipped over and slid on its roof back into the center lane, deploying the multitude of additional air bags found in the 2015 Mustang, which likely helped to save his life. High marks also go to police, medics, and fire department who showed up within minutes.
Amazingly — and thanks to Ford’s focus on safety, he walked away without major injuries.
Check out his story in the forums.
