2013 Ford Mustang GT: Video Road Test & Review
The Ford Mustang is offered in both compact coupe and convertible body styles. The retro-styled Ford Mustang can trace its lineage directly back to the original 1964 pony car that caught the imagination of the American public, but it has evolved to the point where it can provide both startling performance and very reasonable fuel mileage and day-to-day comfort. The Mustang also features safety gear such as side-mounted side airbags up front, forward airbags, hill-start assistance, and electronic traction control and stability control.
The base Ford Mustang is equipped with a 3.7-liter V-6 that delivers 305 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque alongside fuel mileage figures of 19-mpg in city driving and 31-mpg on the highway. The Mustang is additionally available with a 420 horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 that is also good for 390 lb-ft of torque and boasts a fuel economy rating that checks in at 18-mpg around town and 25-mpg during highway cruising. A six-speed manual transmission is standard with either motor, while a six-speed automatic can be ordered as an option.
The least expensive Ford Mustang is the V6 trim (MSRP $22,200 Coupe, $27,200 Convertible). This model offers HID headlights, keyless entry, a limited-slip rear differential, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a CD player, air conditioning, and 17-inch wheels. The Mustang V6 Premium (MSRP $26,200 Coupe, $31,200 Convertible) adds leather seats, the SYNC communications and entertainment interface, a vehicle information display, and a louder Shaker audio system. The Mustang GT (MSRP $30,300 Coupe, $35,300 Convertible) brings with it a stiffer suspension system, a rear spoiler, 18-inch rims, and fog lamps, while the GT Premium (MSRP $34,300 Coupe, $39,300 Convertible) matches the V6 Premium trim in terms of amenities.
Several options packages can be added to the Ford Mustang. The Comfort Group package offers heated front seats with power adjustments for the passenger, while the Electronics package delivers a voice-controlled navigation system and dual automatic climate control. The Tech package provides the SYNC interface, a power driver's seat, and fog lamps, and the GT Track package ups performance thanks to the installation of a more aggressive limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes, upgraded engine and oil cooling, and a shorter rear end gear ratio.
