2010 Ford Mustang Overview

For those in search of an affordable sporty car whose styling has withstood the test of time, the 2010 Ford Mustang is a stellar choice. The Ford Mustang holds a special place in the hearts of automobile fans in the United States. It was the first of the "Pony Car" class of automobiles in America, dating back to the mid-sixties. These cars were noted for their elongated hoods and short rear decks. Mustang started a new class of American cars and led to the creation of competitors like the Chevy Camaro, Pontiac Firebird, and the Plymouth Barracuda. The Mustang has always had a youthful appeal, even after 50 years since it was first mass produced. The 2010 Mustang debuted with a revived sense of sportiness, ready to once again take on its biggest rival through the years, the newly re-introduced Chevrolet Camaro. The 2010 Mustang put the "muscle" back into the American muscle car.

2010 Ford Mustang History

Mustang fans know that the first Mustang produced was the 1964 _ edition that had car buyers swarming to Ford dealers everywhere. Its sleek design and name was said to have been taken from the P-51 Mustang fighter plane. The original Mustang was actually produced from many of the basic parts of the Ford Falcon and Fairlane that the automaker was already producing. Its introduction was overseen by Lee Iacocca.

  • The original sales price of a brand new Mustang in 1964 was $2,368.
  • Mustang sales peaked at over 600,000 for the model year 1966.
  • The Mustang evolved into a bigger, more powerful "muscle car" from 1967 through 1973.
  • In 1974, a smaller, more fuel-efficient Mustang was introduced.
  • From 1979 through 1993, the third generation of Mustangs took to streets.
  • The fifth-generation Mustangs (2005-2014) were designed more with the traditional Fastback look of the late 1960s.

How It Drives

The 2010 Mustang is a rear-wheel drive vehicle that featured Ford's AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control as standard equipment. The 2010 edition featured an upgraded suspension for a bit of a stiffer ride and less sway on hard-cornering. Less forgiving shocks give it a bit more of a sports car feel than previous years of this generation of Mustang. It provides a solid ride, but rear seats, as with most mustangs, are kiddie-size.

Used 2010 Ford Mustang Value

The 2010 Ford Mustang had an original list price that started at just over $25,000, and depending on trim levels, could exceed $42,000. This was slightly lower than its rivals that year, the Chevy Camaro and the Dodge Challenger. Today, 2010 models can be found at or less than half of their original book value, and still provide the good-looking, sporty Mustang styling. This is a vehicle that was highly rated in multiple categories when it initially was introduced to the public, and it continues to get rave reviews.

Design & Performance

While not receiving the wholesale changes of a new model, the 2010 mid-generation Mustang saw some significant improvements in both design and performance. Its exterior was redesigned to reduce drag, with new wheel sizes to provide a more muscular stance. GT models have an available 4.6L V8 that results in 315 horsepower. The 2010 Mustang also has had some significant interior changes that give a more refined, finished appearance from its predecessors. In homage to some classic Thunderbird models, this Mustang features the return of sequential LED tail lights.

Other design and performance enhancements include:

  • An optional navigation system with a large eight-inch screen
  • A four-headlight grille and raised rear deck to add to its retro-appearance
  • New, larger 18" wheels
  • Firm, solid ride with little to no rattles

Powertrain & Engine

This year's model of Mustang comes in a choice of either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. Depending on engine choices, horsepower can range from a modest 215 hp to a powerful 315 hp with the GT. Of course, engine choices will impact gas mileage: city driving produces a range of 16 to 18 mpg, and highway from about 26 to 28 mpg.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The 2010 Ford Mustang features a redesigned interior that sets it above most in its class. Ford redid the interior, upgrading it with more finished and higher grade materials. Seats are sporty and comfortable with a full console separating the front seats. The dashboard makes use of metallic materials with old-school style instruments trimmed in chrome. The sports steering wheel includes infotainment controls. Ford used a number of retro body styling elements to make this unmistakably a Mustang:

  • Familiar three-panel rear lights with sequential turn signals
  • Mustang's signature indented side panels serve as reminders of the car's early years
  • Familiar front-grille "Pony" logo
  • Retro instrumentation
