Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
In anticipation of a major redesign next year, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the iconic model, the 2014 Ford Mustang gets only some different paint colors and package contents. The Boss 302 model is dropped and the Shelby GT500's horsepower rating climbs to 662 (previously the temporary "over-rev" spec).
2013 Ford Mustangs receive minor tweaks to their exteriors, front and rear, plus added technology like the Track Apps software to measure performance, upgraded audio systems, and more power from the 5.0-liter V8 engine. A new supercharger gives the Shelby GT500 a monstrous upgrade in power, with its V8 churning out 650 horsepower.
The 2012 Mustang receives a new selectable steering setup that includes Sport, Comfort and Standard modes, and the Mustang Boss 302 limited-run model debuts touting 444 horsepower. New features available on the 2012 Ford Mustang include dual illuminated visor vanity mirrors, a remote garage door opener, the Reverse Sensing System and HID headlamps.
For 2011, the Mustang receives two new engine choices: an all-aluminum 3.7-liter V6, and a 5.0-liter V8. Both engines can be fitted with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, while the V6 models receive as standard a limited-slip differential. The 2011 Mustang receive a new electrically assisted power steering unit and improvements to its suspension, frame stiffness and interior NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) levels.
The 2010 Ford Mustang's maxi makeover brings more aggressive looks, improved dynamics, greater comfort and higher quality – real and perceived – all of which are impressively reinforced by a host of enhanced features and options. For the first time ever, AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control is available – and standard – on all models.
The Mustang shows not only Ford's commitment to keeping alive a legendary name, but the public's underestimated love of the traditional American muscle car. Shortly after its introduction, rivals Chevrolet and Dodge were sent scrambling, spending much of 2006 showing off revitalization plans for their own muscle car greats, the Camaro and Challenger. But show cars are no cars when it comes to sales and, for the time being, the Mustang is the only game in town. Unlike the terminated Pontiac GTO, the Mustang is blessed with iconic good looks, a choice of V6 or V8 engines and, most importantly, a really affordable sticker price. Make no mistake, serious competition is on the way but, for now, look for Ford to make the most of the Mustang's solo success.

"There is only one thing I dislike about this car. With the 6-speed manual transmission, the cup holders are for storage only. If you put a drink in one of them, you can't shift without bending your arm all funky to get around the drink. Power: 412hp and 390tq from the factory? Yes please! Power is smooth and brutish at the same time. With just an intake, off road X-Pipe and a tune, I put down 420/393 to the rear wheels! Stock it put down 379/363. Gains of 41hp and 30tq for such simple mods is outstanding! Brakes: Work great. Not meant for autocross, but everyday driving they are awesome. Interior: Materials, fit and finish are great for this iteration of the Mustang. Stock Shaker500 is pretty good. Sync is simply awesome! Seats are VERY comfortable but lack lateral support. Back seat can fit young adults and shorter adults and are surprisingly comfortable for what they are. Suspension: Does the job very well. The smoothest ride I've had in a sports car! Handles every thing well, but doesn't excel at cornering and stopping due to lean and nose dive. I installed a set of after market lowering springs, Steeda Ultra-Lights, and it transformed this Mustang from a powerful straight line street machine to one that can get very spirited in the corners and nose dive during braking and turn-in is now almost nonexistent. Styling: It's up to the beholder, but I absolutely LOVE it! Styling doesn't interfere with rear view capabilities like the Camaro does. Mine is Race Red and I literally cannot stop anywhere, even in traffic, without someone complimenting me on my 'Stang! Overall: Simply the best Mustang Ford has ever built."

Cons: "Rear suspension"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"The base V6 is arguably the best sports-car value in the market. I've been getting 30+ mpg when cruising between 55-70mph. And with the more than ample power, that is simply great. The only real drawback of this vehicle is the solid rear axle. When you hit bumps at speed, and particularly when turning, you WILL feel as though your rear end is unstable. This does no inspire confidence, and is perhaps the biggest blunder Ford still needs to fix. It's not evident in calm, everyday driving, but under slick or bumpy conditions, and at speed/turns, the non-independent rear suspension will rear its ugly head. Otherwise, this car is pretty great. It's a bit large, and maybe a bit sluggish compared to other sports car options, but it screams AMERICA and I love mine."

Pros: "Looks, performance, value and fun to drive"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Had this car for a year and very pleased with the overall value and performance.No complains from the Manual transmission and the V8 coyote engine is a blast. The 11 and 12 mustangs have the "sharkhead" front end retro design that makes the car look menacing and the California special trim make heads turn. Put on your preferred axel back exhaust and you'll find yourself looking for alibis just to drive it."
