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."

"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."

"2012 style looks great with HID lights (must have!). Have the Pony pkg. with leather seats and electronics pkg. Pre-ordered in April with all the specs I wanted and received in July 2011. Worst experience I've had with dealership. That certainly isn't a problem for Ford... or is it? My vehicle was confirmed to be built. Then in transit. Then they lost it. Really? Now couldn't confirm it even left the factory. But, eventually, I got it and loved it. Only problem is a flaw in the painting, but I can live with that. You will love the sound of starting it up for the first time. The electronics package choice is the best decision I made on this vehicle. Having the larger screen on the dash is fantastic. Worth the loss of a better stereo as the standard issue entertainment system is more than adequate. Use it for traffic conditions and directions constantly on my drive to work and weekend ventures. Easy to see without loosing site of driving and provides good graphics rather than text turn by turn offered by others. Pros: Great running car so far. Had it now for 2 years driving 365 days in Midwest including snow conditions in MN. Spin out control is good and turn handling is exceptional. Icy conditions... just stay home. Love the cornering control on dry pavement. Awesome! Great gas mileage. I got the 30+ mpg on long highway trips. City is disappointing at 19 but expected. Nav system is wonderful~wish all vechicles had this. Love the option to auto adjust sound volume based on speed of vehicle. Voice recognition is good. Amble space to store photos and music. Bluetooth phone quality good with steering wheel controls and syncs with my Droid phone. Previous Blackberry phone not as good. Nav weather maps accurate and handy. Wish they would have a refresh time. Hate having to exit and reacquire data. Did I mention the # of compliments by others on my car? Cons: Jerky from low gears ~ pick up from a slow coast. Still frustrating. Interior is cheap quality plastic but cleans easily. Blind spots - visibility is poor. Be sure to get the backup camara! This feature is what sold me over the Camero. Otherwise, visibilty is good over competition. Rear seats are worthless for anything. You cannot place anything there without moving the front seats and re-adjusting the front seats after is a pain. No spare tire and the entire compartment to house one is wasted space. NAV doesn't always communicate on first request and need to stop and start request again. Would LOVE to see a two seater version of this vehicle so they can maximize space better. Overall: Very happy. Wish space was better utilized, but love the power, MPG, and lighting options. HID a beautiful thing. NAV is the best thing to add to this vehicle."
