More than just a show pony, the 2009 Ford Mustang offers enthusiasts on a budget a tempting combination of potent performance and timeless styling. All Ford Mustangs are rear-wheel drive and come standard with a five-speed manual transmission. This unit offers the optional five-speed automatic. The Mustang V6 is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 that produces 210 hp and 240 pound-feet of torque.Four-wheel disc brakes and front-seat side airbags are standard on all Mustangs. In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tests, the 2009 Ford Mustang earned a perfect five stars for front-impact protection and side-impact protection of front passengers. The convertible got a five-star rating for rear side protection.With its dual-hooded dash, three-spoke steering wheel and old-school gauges, the cabin of the 2009 Mustang gives more than a nod to the past. Yet this is not an outdated ergonomic mess ? the controls are simple and the seats are comfortable. Both the Mustang coupe and the convertible offer seating for four, and average-size adults can sit in back with little problem. Trunk capacity is pretty good, with 12.3 cubic feet in the coupe and 9.7 in the convertible.Acceleration is respectable with the V6, regardless of whether you choose the precise bolt-action manual or the responsive automatic. The four-wheel disc brakes do an adequate job of reining in the Mustang, as a stop from 60 mph takes a bit less than 125 feet. Despite its switch to an all-new platform a few years ago, the 2009 Ford Mustang continues to use a rather basic solid-axle rear suspension design. This allows Ford to keep the pricing low, yet careful tuning has resulted in reasonably precise handling through the corners and a surprisingly compliant ride.Summary: Powerful performance, eye-catching retro styling, simple controls, low price.
