The Ford Mustang makes a strong case for the American muscle car

The 2014 Ford Mustang, available as a coupe or convertible, has tons of appeal for anyone who wants a speedy, head-turning vehicle that doesn’t cost a fortune. An entry-level Mustang not only delivers tons of retro-inspired muscle car style for your money, but it’s also plenty quick and delivers solid fuel mileage. A 305-horsepower V6 resides under the hood and EPA-estimated highway mileage comes in at 31 mpg. Fuel economy figures are based on EPA estimates for when vehicle sold as new. Fuel economy may vary for reasons like driving conditions and vehicle history. Unless specified, figures are for vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission. See fueleconomy.gov.

Of course, the real fun begins when you snuggle the Mustang’s 5.0-liter V8 into the engine bay. In the Mustang GT it sends 420 hp to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. After a subtle refresh last year, the 2014 Mustang lineup does not have any notable changes or updates. That should suit loyal fans of Ford’s popular pony car just fine, however. Competing models include the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger.

5 reasons to buy the 2014 Ford Mustang

What We Like   

  • A muscle car bargain: The Mustang delivers lots of bang for your buck, no matter which powertrain you choose. With the base V6 it scoots from 0 to 60 mph in about 5.7 seconds. When motivated by the optional V8, that time drops by about one second. 

  • Trunk volume: Granted, this applies more to the Mustang coupe than it does the convertible model. In hardtop format, the Mustang’s trunk measures in at about 13 cubic feet in capacity. That’s more than fine for a long weekend’s worth of luggage. With the convertible, trunk space dips to just under 10 cubic feet.  

  • Manual gearbox: Being able to shift for yourself is getting increasingly rare, even in the world of sporty coupes and convertibles. The six-speed manual available in the Mustang can be fitted to either the V6 or V8 engine.   

What Needs Improvement   

  • Dated interior: The cabin of the Mustang is generally a nice place to spend your time, though a few bargain trim pieces detract from the ambience. The lack of a telescoping steering wheel is also a strange oversight in Ford’s performance machine.
