Overview

The Ford Mustang is the purest distillation of the American muscle car on the U.S. market. The Mustang was completely redesigned a little more than two years ago, but Ford never wants the Mustang to get old, so the 2013 model has seen some visual updates, with a new front grille and fascia and narrower, HID headlights. As for powertrains, the base Stang gets a 3.7-liter V-6 that pumps out 305 hp and is touted as the first 300-plus-hp engine to return 30 mpg. The GT marks the return of the 5.0-liter V-8, which has been bumped up to an impressive 420 hp. At the top of the lineup is the Shelby GT500. Its supercharged V-8 has been upgraded from 5.4 to 5.8 liters and now offers a mind-blowing 662 hp. For even sharper performance, an SVT package with special tires, lighter wheels, a higher axle ratio, and stiffer springs is available for the GT500. The 444-hp Boss 302 offers exceptional performance at a price that undercuts the Shelby by some $10,000. The base and GT models can be had with a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic; the Boss 302 and the GT500 come with the manual only. Available as a coupe and a convertible, this pony is a solid competitor that won’t back down from its Chevy Camaro and Dodge Challenger competitors.
