The Mustang GT does more than go fast in a straight line. Agile handling and good brakes, a tolerable ride and comfortable seats, easy access and a good view out all contribute to a satisfyingly enjoyable drive. It doesn't hurt that the V8 is a hell-raiser that sounds great and the six-speed manual has short throws and an easy shift action.

MICHAEL H., NH (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Great acceleration and handling. Turns on a dime."

JOSEPH A., NY (2014 Ford Mustang)

MICHAEL R., MO (2014 Ford Mustang)

"I bought this car for both styling and performance. Although the car has much more power than necessary, it can be fun to exercise it's potential."

STEVE L., AL (2014 Ford Mustang)

"It is a GT with a v8 motor and 6 spd transmission. It handles well and has very good acceleration. The manual transmission is fun to shift. I have put a different shifter in the car that has helped with the fun factor"

JOHN N., KS (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Best value for performance of any high performance vehicle I've ever owned"

JOEL E., NC (2014 Ford Mustang)

"This car will move! and the fuel economy is great for something with the power that it has."

CONNOR H., GA (2014 Ford Mustang)

"I was unsure about the V6 at first but after three years I have grown to respect this power plant"

LEO A., CT (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Handles like a good sports car. Accelleration from the V6 is excellent."

DAVID S., PA (2014 Ford Mustang)

"The six-cylinder car has good power and the sports gear enables me to put it in gear manually, which I like."

PAUL C., CA (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Although it lacks a lot of low end torque, the car still has amazing acceleration and power for a six. Excellent gas mileage. Even with solid axle, handles very well. I don't see the reason why Ford introduced the turbo four which has VERY similiar performance and fuel consumption but at a considerably greater cost. The four also sounds pathetic."

Anonymous, NS (2014 Ford Mustang)

"This car is a delight to drive! The engine/transmission is VERY responsive. The handling and road worthiness is fantastic. Even better than the Corvette I owned. Lovely car, attention grabber, I just love it!"

CHUCK R., ON (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Acceleration is awesome but it is comfortable whether driving around town or on the road. Handling is superb with all season tires but extremely dangerous with standard summer tires when temperature drops too 40-50 degrees. I changed to all season for safety and the ability to drive year round and extended tire life not afforded by summer tires"

MARVIN A., NJ (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Great acceleration for a 6 cylinder."

LARRY L., NJ (2014 Ford Mustang)

"For a V6 this car can go very well. It has excellent acceleration. It also handles very well."

BERNARD A., AZ (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Electronically controlled Bilstein shocks and 662 hp. Nuff said."

GARY W., MA (2014 Ford Mustang)

"420 horses gets the car up and moving. It is a fun car to drive. I smile every time I get in it and go somewhere. It makes getting there a real treat"

John N., KS (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Great handling and acceleration even though base model"

Anonymous, TX (2014 Ford Mustang)

"My Mustang is actually a Roush Stage 2 Mustang that's been modified. The Ford quality is excellent, and the Roush handling package is awesome- very balanced and tight, but not too jarring. The engine/manual transmission with modifications are also awesome- I'm VERY satisfied with both the Ford built engine, as well as my modifications done to the engine and transmission."

Anonymous, OH (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Very high power levels and handles like a sports car."

"Very spunky performance with great throttle response and smooth shifting,"

A B., IN (2014 Ford Mustang)

"All other factors aside, I bought my Mustang for the driving experience, and it blows me away every time I get behind the wheel. It's a blast to drive, yet comfortable and refined at the same time."

Brandon M., VA (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Top 3 fastest USA built cars."

Wayne D., NJ (2014 Ford Mustang)

"The suspension, brakes, cooling system and tires are all modified for track use. Despite frequent and severe use at numerous race tracks, nothing has ever broken or been repaired. Of course many sets of brake pads, rotors and tires have been replaced because of the severe use. A very durable car!"

"Good acceleration and handling. I am most pleased with the fuel economy. My mileage will range from 25-32 MPG depending on my use."

Robert J., TX (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Good acceleration for a base model. Handles well since I changed tires."

Michael K., FL (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Kind of covered that previously, but acceleration is very linear as is the braking. Easy to modulate brakes. I have a live rear axle which is remarkably good on corners. Of course the newer cars with independent rears would be better, but it doesn't bother me too much. In real life the car is very easy to handle in emergencies, like 7 turkeys crossing the road. Got braked down quickly without perturbing my passenger very much, and manage to duck in between Turkey 6 and Turkey 7 in the opposing lane with no traffic approaching. Pretty slick. I'll take total credit for the move, but the car made it SO much easier. I have well over a million miles of driving experience in all kinds of weather and all sizes of vehicles from an MG Midget to a 76 seat school bus."

Anonymous, NH (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Fast sounds great"

Wilma B., FL (2014 Ford Mustang)

"I love driving this car. It handles curves in the road with ease. The acceleration is excellent, which is useful in getting out of tricky situations on crowded highways. The only issue is the automatic transmission can be sluggish in a down shift, causing hesitation with acceleration when the car is already moving. Overall, driving this car is the best driving experience I've ever had."

Scott S., NC (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Can't beat the sound of a Mustang 5.0. Acceleration and braking are great. Handling is great on smooth roads. Rear end sometimes steps out on bumpy corners due to this model-year having a solid rear axle."

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"The seats have no lumbar adjustment. There was no automatic climate control at the higher trim level."

MICHAEL L., MN (2014 Ford Mustang)

"Seats are not comfortable for long trips - this is not a touring car. I currently work and live in South Korea as a defense contractor - the car could not be imported for ordinary citizens of south Korea until the 2015."

Anonymous, NS (2014 Ford Mustang)

"No other car could touch this for bang for the buck. I test drove the 2014 Camaro, but it felt like sitting in a bathtub and the dash controls looked like Mattel designed them. Plus the Camaro was gonna cost a little more for bang for buck by the time I factory ordered the options I wanted. The Challenger I never drove because it was going to cost a LOT more to get similar performance to the Mustang. For acceleration and handling, I did incredibly well plus I got factory discounts, and I got what I wanted with a factory order. I don't regret the purchase at all. I could do with an interior that's as nice as the 2019, but knew I had to sacrifice something back then to keep it within my budget. Glad I didn't wait for a later year mode. If I was loaded I'd put in air bags for a better ride while keeping the performance (it can be done) but don't have the money. My friends love riding in the car. Horrible back seat leg room, but I manage to make it work for the very few semi tall friends who are willing to take turns riding back there on very rare occasions. But that's a natural sacrifice for a car that's not meant to be a passenger car. I don't regret the purchase at all. The Ford dealer has been totally great. Basically I got a $43k car for $39k. Current value at my mileage is actually quite reasonable. I'm totally happy with the automatic transmission. Seats are pretty decent, got the ones with heat instead of the Recaros, which I didn't feel were worth the extra money and you can't adjust headrests on Recaro's, which is very important to me. I don't do track driving, but can get aggressive on back roads and highways when the circumstances are right. The car always makes me happy.

Anonymous, ON (2014 Ford Mustang)

"I've always loved the Mustang, so I made up my mind to get one. I had to choose between the 2014 and the new design 2015. Saw them side-by-side at an auto show and decided that the 2015 had lost a lot of the "Mustang" look. Bought the 2014 GT and think it's a very good looking car."

ALFRED P., FL (2014 Ford Mustang)

"The 2014 Mustang was the last year for the "retro" model. I bought the GT premium and had a Ford Racing Performance exhaust, air intake and a computer reprogramming installed by the Ford dealer at the time of purchase. The upgrade does not violate the warranty. It is a beautiful looking, sounding and performing car."
