West Hollywood traffic at 9:00 a.m. moves as quickly as molasses on a cold day, especially when you have the promise of a run up the Angeles Crest Highway ahead of you. Yet here we were stuck behind half a dozen other 2015 Mustangs and a city bus, attempting to make a left turn against bumper-to-bumper traffic that refused to make any openings. Far from taxing my patience, it became an unexpected opportunity to see how far Ford’s revamp of the Mustang extended. No matter how much I would learn about the car on the tight two-lane road north of the Los Angeles Basin later that morning, this is where buyers will spend most of their time with the car: in traffic. Say what you will about the advantages of independent rear suspension over a live axle, or of the increased brake size, or even of the 5.0-liter’s ability to pull to its rev limit, this traffic snarl would tell if the 2015 Mustang is a car you can live with day-to-day.
