2016 Ford Mustang

Buyer's Guide

Ford's iconic Mustang pony car moves into 2016 with a few small updates. GT models add turn signal repeaters in the hood vents (which the manufacturer says is a "nod to Mustang heritage"), SYNC 3 (the third generation of Ford's infotainment system), and there are new colour options, plus racing stripes and an available black roof.

Mustang's mechanicals remain the same: V6 models use a 3.7L engine making 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, and the EcoBoost trim gets a 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder good for 310 hp and 320 lb-ft. The GT is the entry-level to a range of V8-powered models, with a 5.0L engine that makes 435 hp and 400 lb-ft. Those after more serious performance can choose from the Shelby GT350 and GT350R, which share a 5.2L V8 that generates 526 hp and 429 lb-ft.

Transmission choices are between six-speed manual and automatic gearboxes in V6, EcoBoost and GT models, but both GT350 models are fitted exclusively with a six-speed manual.

All but the Shelby cars can be had as a coupe (fastback) or convertible.

Fuel consumption estimates start at 10.6/7.6 L/100 km (city/highway) for four-cylinder models; the most efficient V6 model is rated 12.6/8.5, and the thriftiest GT version's ratings are 14.9/9.5. The Shelby GT350 is rated 16.9/11.0 L/100 km.

Standard feature highlights include HID headlights with LED signature lighting, intelligent keyless entry with push-button start, track apps, illuminated entry, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and driver-selectable electric power steering.

Ecoboost models add a six-way power front passenger seat, 18-inch wheels, and dual bright exhaust tips.

GT trim gets electronic line-lock, ambient lighting, leather seats, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

The GT350 has a leather-and-alcantara-trimmed steering wheel, and a standard technology package, and the GT350R adds a carbon fibre rear wing.

MSRPs range from $26,398 to $80,688.

My Perfect Ecoboost Mustang
This is a fantastic sport car, It is black on black interior. I love its look, performance, it is perfect for summer with top down and drives well in the winter. and it is has very good gas consumption. this ecoboost model has a four cylinder engine and with the turbo it performs better than the six cylinder cars.
