The Ford Mustang – A True Performance Vehicle

Ford Mustang has been the best muscle car ever manufactured. At present there are three muscle cars in the market which are in great demand – they are Mustang, Dodge Challenger and Chevy Camaro. Among them the Mustang is the best rated because of its features and specifications. The Mustang is an iconic car which is known throughout the world. And it is an epitome of energy, power, luxury and interiors. This is a true American Icon and there are very few cars which embody the rugged American individualism like the Ford Mustang.

The Mustang is admired for its powerful engine, interior designs and iconic exterior, stellar performance and spectacular crash tests. The 2008 is a worthy successor of all previous Mustangs the new 2008 mustang is back with its classic bad boy looks. And again it ranks the top. Till yesterday the V8 engine muscle car era was dying away but today Ford Mustang faces a stiff competition from Dodge Challenger and Chevy Camaro. Still Mustang wins for its quality and winner costs.

The 2008 Mustang is available as V6 and GT in both Deluxe and Premium trims. They have also introduced the Bullitt trim. The Mustang is also offered as a convertible and it ranks high as the affordable convertible car. The V6 model of Mustang can offer you a mileage of 17/26 mpg but the V8 giant will stick to 15/22 mpg only.

Performance: With its intimidating growl and 300 horsepower the Mustang can be the best American muscle car. The rear wheel drive is a properly refined car in all forms. The engine is perfect compared to Nissan 350Z and Mazda RX-8 which use the V8 engines. There are two engine choices for Ford Mustang. For Deluxe and Premium you have the 4.0 liter V6 engine which is equipped with 210 horsepower for a stout performance. Again the Bullitt, Premium and GT Deluxe with 4.6 liter V8 engine which is able to create a horse power of 300. Thus such engine provides enough power to burn the rubber of your tires.

Though the V6’s out is enough to get your blood flow fast the V8 growls like a tiger and moves the majestic way. The new Ford Mustang is clearly faster, sharper and refined than old Mustangs. The performance is vigorous and its exhaust noise is intrusive. Regardless of whether you choose manual shift or automatic shift transmission the fun and thrill remains the same for the new Mustang.
