The Ford Mustang defined the pony car segment in 1964 and was a runaway sales success. It helped create a niche that exploded in popularity with the Camaro, Firebird, Barracuda, Cougar, Javelin, and Challenger. They’re all gone now, leaving the Mustang with no direct competition, at least for now.
Fortunately, today’s Mustang, introduced three years ago, is a superb example of the genre. The Mustang GT comes with a 300-hp V8 and is an absolute hoot to drive, making all the right sounds, hanging onto corners tenaciously, and delivering thrilling acceleration performance. The American pony car has never been better than the current Mustang GT.
The GT Deluxe coupe adds to the V6 Deluxe a six-way power driver’s seat, in-grille fog lamps, a rear spoiler, sport suspension, and 235/55R17 performance all-season tires on painted aluminum wheels. Its 4.6-liter overhead-cam V8 produces 300 horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission is standard; a five-speed automatic is optional.
