Generation Overview

The 2012 Ford Mustang is part of this iconic car's fifth generation of production (2005-2014). When this generation debuted in 2005, it featured a new 4.0L V6 standard engine, refined styling, and new features like lighter coil springs and a refined rear axle. 

Ford Mustang Engine Options

A 4.0L V6 engine at 210 hp was standard on all V6 trims from 2005 through 2010; beginning in 2011, a 3.7L V6 engine at 305 hp become the standalone engine option for V6 trims. 

GT engines have changed over the years, too. From 2005-2010, GT trims received a 4.6L V8 engine at 300-315 hp (exact output varies by model year). For 2011, however, a 5.0L V8 at 412 hp became standard on every GT trim. This same engine is equipped on the Boss 302 trim, although quad exhaust tips result in a higher output of 444 hp. The 5.0L V8 engine also comes only in a manual transmission for the Boss 302 trim, whereas every other trim can be had with a manual or automatic transmission.

Ford Mustang Storage Space

Let's face it; you don't typically buy a sports coupe or convertible for the storage space. Still, the fifth-generation Mustang offers a decent amount when you need it. On the 2012 coupe, you'll find a 12.3-cubic-foot trunk, along with split-folding rear seats for added storage. Meanwhile, trunk space on the 2012 Mustang convertible maxes out at 9.7 cubic feet.

2012 Mustang

Are you kidding. This is my 3rd mustang and I must say it is the 2nd most fun I've had in a car. The hp is awesome and I get very reasonable 26 mpg on the hwy. Great looks and handling. Most bang for the buck.

Fun, reliable car!

A great price for a fun, comfortable car.

- Gina Wells, 2012 Ford Mustang


Great car with lots of power and good looks. There's nothing better than a convertible on a warm summer day. Pair that with a 5.0 V8 and a 6 speed manual I couldn't be happier. This California Special Mustang is my 3 Mustang and will last me a while.
