The Mustang is the original pony car and even the reason why everyone calls those types of vehicles pony cars. Choosing a new Ford Mustang can be tough since there are a lot of different options to consider when shopping at our Central New Jersey dealership location.
Let’s take a dive into the ways you can make the Ford Mustang your own, whether you choose the base model, the Premium, the GT, the GT Premium, the Shelby GT350 or the Shelby GT350R.
2 Body Styles
There are a couple of different configurations that you can choose from, the first being the classic Fastback that’s a 2-door pony car with a hardtop and more shoulder room in the 2nd row. There’s also a Convertible with more 2nd-row headroom and legroom if you want the wind to flow through your hair as you put the pedal to the metal on the Parkway or Turnpike.
Note: As of this post’s publishing, the GT, Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R are only available as a Fastback.
We know the heart of any Mustang is the engine under the hood. There are a few to pick from to get the exact power you desire. The standard engine for the new Ford Mustang is a 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 that delivers 300 hp and 280 lb/ft of torque.
If you want to maximize your fuel economy since you commute or just like to drive, there’s the 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine that’s able to get up to an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway and generate 310 hp and 320 lb/ft of torque.
The Ford Mustang GT ups the ante with a 5.0L V8 that gets 435 hp and 400 lb/ft of torque, while the GT350 and GT350R models are able to deliver 526 hp and 429 lb/ft of torque thanks to the 5.2L Flat Plane Crank V8.
Six-speed manual transmission comes standard, but 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with paddle shifters is offered in every model except the GT350 and GT305R that gives you the option of pairing the V8 with TREMEC® 6-speed manual transmission.
