So we introduced the various models to choose from in the Ford F-Series line including the popular Ford F150’s, but now we’d like to introduce another line of Ford vehicle for our hardcore horsepower fans – the Ford Mustang family. If you’re in the market for a new car, you probably already know what you’re looking for: the perfect combination of usability, price, safety, fuel economy, and eye-catching style. What you might not know, is that the legendary pony car might meet your needs, and add a lot of fun to your driving. That’s right, the Ford Mustang has come a long way and it’s now available in a wide array of trims, engines and prices. From the fuel efficient V6 to the top of the line Shelby 500, there’s plenty to choose from. Let’s take a look at the different options.
To call it the base model would be unfair, because this entry-level Ford Mustang comes standard with amazing safety features and equipment that you probably won’t find in other cars in this price range. It comes standard with a 305 HP V6 engine, 6-speed state of the art manual transmission, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, HID headlamps and LED tail lamps and stainless-steel dual exhaust tips. Believe it or not, this car makes the perfect choice for the daily commuter with a need for speed, as it gets up to 29 MPG. Also part of the V6 family are the V6 Premium (which adds an upgraded audio system, color lcd display, and optional leather seats), V6 Convertible (pretty self explanatory) and V6 Convertible Premium.
Now here’s where things start to get interesting. 5 liter V8 engine. That’s it. That’s THE feature of this model. The GT trim also unlocks a myriad of other options and upgrades like the Brembo Break Package, GT Track Package (upgraded BOSS radiator, breaks and wheels) and FP8 appearance Package (19-inch Machined painted black aluminum wheels, black painted outside mirrors, black painted decklid spoiler). In addition, you can pick from GT Convertible, GT Premium or GT Convertible Premium. Amazing, isn’t it?
So if you thought the 420 HP 5L V8 engine of the GT was overkill, wait until you read this. The Shelby GT500 comes standard with a V8 5.8L. That’s right, this car boasts an engine bigger than ones found in full-size pickup trucks and it peaks at 662 HP. While is not made for the environmentally friendly, this Ford Mustang was born to race.
