YES, the Ford Mustang really is a fantastic sports car. It certainly gallops through bends like no other vehicle on the road today and boasts an impressive engine line featuring a powerful turbocharged 4-cylinder and ends with the beefy V8s you would expect from a muscle vehicle. And because it’s such a naturally aspirational vehicle, many drivers find the car’s dependability and high fuel economy appealing. However, the Ford Mustang still has room to improve upon.
With an emphasis on speed, the Ford Mustang suffers from some less than ideal handling characteristics. However, this could easily be worked around. Perhaps the main difficulty is found when attempting to turn sharp corners; the body rolls during corner turning with no warning. This is a problem encountered not only in the higher model Mustang models but also in the lower variants as well. Fortunately, all these problems can be worked around if you have the right gear, which the Ford Mustang does have.
One of the defining characteristics of a Mustang is its powerful V-8 engine, which must be revved to achieve maximum performance. Unfortunately, this characteristic isn’t present on every car of this type. Many sports cars are instead fitted with engines that require less grunt to get up to speed; engines which often lack power. This means that for those looking for powerful Ford Mustangs, Dodge challenger versions may just be your best option. While the new Ford Mustang doesn’t pack as much power as its Dodge counterparts, it does have enough muscle to give any person plenty of confidence when driving.
The Ford Mustang, like the popular GMC Camaro and Chevy Camaro, also has great fuel efficiency. Both of these popular vehicles, however, are far more fuel efficient than the standard Ford Mustang, thanks to the aforementioned V-8. The standard Ford Mustang, when compared to the other two sports cars mentioned earlier, only sports an EPA rating of twenty-eight mpg. The average gas mileage for the Mustangs with the automatic transmission included is able to reach up to thirty-three mpg. With all these great benefits to offer, it’s easy to see why the current Ford Mustang has become so popular. It’s also easy to understand why people continue to buy it year after year.
If you’re a sports car enthusiast, you know that owning one is about more than just driving it. You also have to know which type of vehicle best suits your personality. For instance, the Ford Mustang offers great performance, but some people prefer the looks of the Chevy Camaro, while some would rather stick with the older Ford Mustangs. There is no right or wrong answer when choosing between these four popular models, so you will just have to choose which one best fits your sense of style!
One of the must have Ford Mustangs for sure is the Ford Mustang convertible. The new Ford Mustang has both the hood and the trunk of a coupe, yet it has the muscle of a true muscle car. Offering both low and high tops, the mustang can be easily adapted to all types of weather conditions, including rainy days. Of course, the standard Ford Mustang also comes in a variety of colors, so you can choose whether to go for a lighter or darker shade for your ride. Some sports cars might not be suited for the wet weather, so it is important to consider this as well. However, most experts would say that the Ford Mustang convertible is a great choice if you live in an area that regularly experiences rainy or snowy days.
The new Ford Mustang convertible is also equipped with an automatic transmission, and the manual transmission has been updated to include the previously mentioned five-speakers. The mustang GT is one model in the Mustang range that has received some updates, with the most notable being the availability of the Ecoboost fuel injection system. It’s worth mentioning that the new Ford Mustang Convertible with Ecoboost is a different size compared to the regular Ford Mustang. It is only by reading through the owner’s manual that you will be able to determine exactly how the interior of the vehicle has been affected by the changes made. The exterior however, remains the same.
One important detail that you should definitely be considering when looking for a mustang is its engine. The standard features of a mustang are quite diverse, with most models using a version of the Ford Motor Company’s revised Cobra platform. For the new Ford Mustang, the new bullet engine is derived from the Cobra’s platform and uses a higher compression ratio than the original. The Ford Mustang GT is powered by a standard block and uses an aluminum radiator and custom headers. You also get high performance Ford Racing sound system with tweeters, high end Brembo brakes and front sport exhaust.
As for the exterior design, the Ford Mustang gets new front headlamp and side skirts as well as a revised grille and side badge. All previous models featured chrome plated body parts. However, the new Ford Mustang gets new front and rear bumpers, and also new side skirts and grilles. On the other hand, the new v8 mustangs also sport new front and rear bumpers. Both the front and the back of the Mustang receive a special attention, with both elements getting lighter with the same color combination.
