It’s not quite the same as winning a Mustang, but Ford Motor Credit Company is offering folks the opportunity to take a long road trip in the 2015 Mustang in its Ford Credit Dream Drive Sweepstakes. On top of that, the winner will also get a nice wad of cash for the trip.

In this giveaway, Ford Motor Credit is offering one Canadian and one American the opportunity to pilot the Mustang along their predetermined route of choice. The winners can choose from six famous routes, including “Route 66” from Arizona to Las Vegas, “Going-to-the-Sun” Road from Glacier National Park to Flathead, Montana, “Pacific Coast Highway” from Monterey to Laguna Beach, California, “Great River Road” from Memphis, Tennessee to New Orleans, Louisiana, “Overseas Highway” from Miami to the Florida Keys, and “Trans-Canada Highway” from Kelowna, British Columbia, to Calgary, Alberta.

Along with getting to whip the Mustang along one of these awesome routes, Ford Motor Credit will also give the winners of the four-day, three-night road trip round-trip airfare and free lodging for you and a guest, a $750 gas card, a $1,500 gift card, a camera, and other "surprises along the way." The winners also get the opportunity to tailor the trip to their liking, like scheduling a tour at one of the destinations.

If you’re interested, you U.S.-based folks can enter at FordCreditDreamDrive.com and Canadians can enter here.
But hurry. The entry deadline is June 8th.

There is no mention of what 2015 Ford Mustang each winner will pilot, but I would assume that Fordwould put them in either the new Ecoboost model or the range-topping GT. It would be quite the buzzkill to have to pilot around the V-6-powered model.

Why it matters

There’s nothing quite like a leisurely road trip to put the mind at ease, particularly considering the six awesome routes available. What makes it even sweeter is the fact that you can cruise this route in a new Mustang, and I am sure Ford will put you up in high-end lodging, feed you great food, and make it a trip to remember. Oh, and who couldn’t use an extra $1,500 in his wallet? Sounds like one hell of a great time to me!

Press Release

The ultimate road trip behind the wheel of a 2015 Ford Mustang will be a dream come true for two lucky winners and their guests in the Ford Credit Dream Drive Sweepstakes. Winners will choose a route from among six legendary North American roads and then drive it using a 2015 Mustang provided for the trip.

“For anyone who’s ever dreamed of the ultimate road trip in the ultimate ride – the 2015 Ford Mustang – this is a chance to win the trip,” says John Ferguson, Ford Motor Credit Company New Vehicle Launch manager.

One winner in Canada and one in the United States will choose a four-day travel package worth up to $8,500 including use of a 2015 Mustang, round-trip airfare, gas, lodging, spending money and a camera to capture their once-in-a-lifetime memories. Winners can personalize their trips with, for example, a private tour of the south rim of the Grand Canyon, fishing in the Canadian Rockies or golf in the Florida Keys.

Ford Credit Dream Drive Sweepstakes winners will be drawn about a week after the contest closes June 8, 2015. Winners will choose from these legendary routes:

Route 66: Grand Canyon, Arizona, to Las Vegas, Nevada

Going-to-the-Sun Road: Glacier National Park to Flathead, Montana

Pacific Coast Highway: Monterey to Laguna Beach, California

Loaded with innovative technologies and delivering high levels of performance and style, the 2015 Ford Mustang is the next chapter in the life of one of the world’s most iconic cars. The new Mustang is the first car to offer four-, six- and eight-cylinder engines that each produces at least 300 horsepower. Mustang’s impact goes well beyond the 9 million-plus cars sold; it has made thousands of appearances in film television, music and video games.
