Now befitting a luxury segment, the 2016 Mustang is also muscling its way into sports car territory as well. Recently redesigned in 2015, the latest Ford Mustang model has a fresh approach to an age-old car type.
The 2016 Mustang has a feature to please essentially any driver. Now that it has ventured into the luxury space, the 2016 Ford Mustang has a cabin that's more feature-rich than ever. Even on the V6 base model, the 2016 Mustang offers great features such as a power driver seat, rear parking sensors and larger wheels optional. Standard features include power windows, locks, mirrors, air conditioning, cruise control, a sound system with two USB ports and an aux jack, Bluetooth audio streaming, voice control, a rearview camera and push-to-start functionality. Higher trim levels deliver access to leather seating, satellite radio and power passenger seating.
The 2016 Ford Mustang is designed to be a high performance vehicle and lives up to its legacy. With additional trim levels and progressively more powerful engines, drivers can expect acceleration and excitement from the 2016 Mustang. With firm suspension and rear-wheel drive, handling and control are the 2016 Mustang's best strengths. The big frame paired with high firepower creates an intimidating road presence and a firm, exciting drive.
The 2016 Ford Mustang has a 3.7L V6 engine equipped at its base model. It also has a turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder engine that, while still powerful, may not be as satisfying as the V6 engine. All engines are paired with a six-speed manual transmission standard, with an optional six-speed automatic available. Of course, the highest-performing 2016 Mustang is the highest trim level available. The 2015 Mustang GT is equipped with a 5.0L V8 engine that clocks in 435 horsepower and is capable of delivering a top speed of 155 mph.
The 2016 Ford Mustang has been thoroughly upgraded to have a modern shape with retro inspiration. The body is built with better materials as well, giving the vehicle a more substantial style. It has a broad, imposing front end and a cockpit-themed interior, just like sports cars of the past. The increased size means plenty of headroom for taller drivers, and the passenger seat is comfortable as well. Though the back seat may not be as spacious as the front row, the upholstery is high-quality and comfortable.
