Ford Mustang Overview

The Mustang brings more to the table than iconic looks and powerful engines. Handling is agile and the ride is tolerable for a sporty car. Its refined and punchy 305-hp V6 attained an impressive 24 mpg overall. The GT's 5.0-liter V8 is a scorcher and sounds great. The automatic sacrifices just a little performance compared with the crisp-shifting short-throw manual. The upright stance allows for a decent view out and fairly easy access, making it a reasonable choice for daily driving. The front seats are comfortable, but the rear seats are tight. Interior fit and finish is fairly basic. A 2015 redesign debuts this fall.
