5 reasons to buy the 2021 Ford Mustang

1. Iconic, timeless styling

Since its debut way back in 1964, the Ford Mustang has become one of the most famous and iconic car models of all time, in no small part because of its instantly recognizable fastback coupe body. The 2021 Ford Mustang is a worthy successor to the classic 1960s models, taking those retro styling cues and bringing them into the present day in a sleek, modern package. Put simply, it's an utterly stunning car, both in standard form and the premium Mach 1 trim with extra, more aggressive styling details. If you want a car that will turn heads on the street and make you smile whenever you look at it, few can match the 2021 Ford Mustang for sheer style.

2. Two powerful engine options

The 2021 Ford Mustang has a choice of two very strong engine options. Base EcoBoost® models come with a 2.3L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which offers both power and versatility with an output of 310 horsepower, and when equipped with the optional ten-speed automatic transmission, an EPA-estimated 25 mpg combined and 32 mpg on the highway.

 Of course, muscle cars are most commonly associated with V8 engines, and the 2021 Ford Mustang more than delivers on that front, with a 5.0L powerplant available on GT trims upwards producing a formidable 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. The roaring, rumbling V8 is the flagship of the lineup, but both engines are easily capable of putting a huge smile on your face whenever you put your foot down.

3. Bold styling from the Mach I trim

If you really want as much power and excitement as possible from your 2021 Ford Mustang, the premium Mach 1 trim is the perfect choice for you. A homage to the classic high-performance Mustang models first introduced in 1969, the 2021 Mach 1 offers a unique suite of appearance and performance features to really push your Mustang to the limit. Along with a choice of eye-catching exterior colors and racing stripes to choose from, you also get an uprated V8 engine with 480 horsepower, special 19-inch wheels, sports suspension and brakes, and a Torsen limited-slip differential.

4. A comfortable and civilized interior

If you're looking for a high-performance car that also works just fine as a comfortable daily driver, the 2021 Ford Mustang is a great pick. Underneath that aggressive fastback exterior lies a surprisingly spacious and comfortable interior, providing seating for up to four passengers inside, a total of 82.2 cu-ft of passenger volume, 45.1 inches of front seat legroom, and 29 inches of rear seat legroom. EcoBoost Premium trims add extra creature comforts such as dual-zone automatic climate control, partial leather upholstery, and heated and ventilated front seats. Highway cruising is the perfect environment for a car like the 2021 Ford Mustang, and you and your passengers will enjoy every mile in comfort.

5. Full selection of driver convenience features

Further enhancing the 2021 Ford Mustang's capabilities as the muscle car you can live with every day, is a great selection of driver convenience features available across the range. Base models offer the Ford CoPilot360 suite as standard, including forward collision warning and mitigation, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-keeping assist. Additionally, all 2021 Ford Mustang models can be found with an additional package that adds adaptive cruise control and an upgraded navigation system.
