When it comes to sports coupes there is likely none more well known than the Ford Mustang Coupe. Not only does this car have easy recognition in the class, it has a long standing reputation for both performance and quality. That reputation is only kicked up a notch with each new generation, and additional trims, that Ford offers for the vehicle. From the sporty style to the power underneath the hood, the Mustang's reputation is well deserved. While not necessarily the predominant in the market with respect to space or design, the Mustang still offers buyers the highest overall satisfaction in a muscle car.
The exterior of the Ford Mustang Coupe has changed a lot in the decades that it has been on the market. The problem is that it is so common that everyone knows it on sight and many own it already. This leaves a lot to be desired if the buyer is looking for something that will instantly turn heads when they drive past. Fortunately there is more to the Mustang than exterior beauty and that is what generally appeals to the masses. While definitely lacking in the ability to be unique, it takes little more than a drive around the block to be impressed.
A venture into the cabin of the Ford Mustang Coupe showcases a little more plastic than one would like in a car today. This could be a downfall for the vehicle as more cars are steering towards a higher quality of materials. What it does have in its favor is a cabin filled with current features and modern technology. While that doesn't make up for the lack of space in the rear, most assume that this will be an issue when looking at the modern day muscle cars.
It is on the road that the Ford Mustang Coupe really shines its brightest. With a multitude of engine possibilities under the hood, there is none that leave this vehicle lacking. Drivers will find the ride thrilling whether heading down straightaways or tackling the curves. It is easy to handle under virtually any condition and passengers will enjoy the gusto that it offers. Those that get their enthusiasm when behind the wheel of car will not be disappointed regardless of which trim and engine combination is selected. The Mustang has been known for decades by its experience on the roads and the current versions continue that tradition.
There are several engine options on the Ford Mustang Coupe and all are designated based on the trim that is selected. Buyers that opt for the V6 trim will be privy to a 3.7 liter, 305 horsepower V6. If the GT trim is selected then the engine moves up to a 5.0 liter, 412 horsepower V8. Both engines are able to be used with a six speed manual transmission that comes standard, or the owner can opt for a six speed automatic. The Boss 302 trim kicks it up a notch by utilizing a 5.0 liter, 444 horsepower V8. Those who select the Boss 302 are stuck with a manual transmission because the automatic is not an option. The gas mileage will vary anywhere from 17 to 19 mpg in the city and 20 to 31 mpg on the highway depending on the engine.
