On March 9, 1964, a Wimbledon White Ford Mustang convertible rolled off the assembly line at the Ford production plant in Dearborn, Michigan. This was the first Mustang ever made, and it was an instant classic. Thanks to its iconic style and legendary performance, the Ford Mustang went on to become one of the most popular vehicles in the world—just ask any one of the thousands of Ford dealerships that have struggled to keep the powerful pony car in stock. But if you think Ford has forgotten about the Mustang after 48 years of continuous production, think again; in 2013, the best is going to be even better.
Here is a sneak peek at what to expect from America’s favorite pony car in 2013:
Across the board, the entire 2013 Ford Mustang lineup has been improved to place the already legendary nameplate in a new tier of power. From the potent 305-horsepower V6 and blisteringly-powerful 420-horsepower Ti-VCT Coyote V8 to the most powerful production V8 engine in the world—the 662-horsepower 5.8-liter supercharged V8 inside the new Shelby GT500—the 2013 lineup of Mustangs proves that Ford has a vehicle for even the most power-hungry drivers.
From its redesigned front end and pronounced curvature to its unique LED accents and dual exhaust system, the 2013 Ford Mustang is arguably the best looking pony car to date. And while the mighty Boss 302 retains the same engine capabilities as the 2012 model, the 2013 model features new styling and design elements that pay homage to the iconic 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302.
Performance is measured in many different ways. But no matter what measurement you prefer, the 2013 Ford Mustang proves to be one of the best performing vehicles in the world. Let’s say you measure performance in terms of fuel economy. If so, then you’ll be gladly surprised to learn that the 2013 lineup includes the first-ever 305-horsepower, 31-highway mpg V6. If you adhere to track performance, on the other hand, then you’ll love the fact that the Shelby GT500 has a 0-60 time of just 3.5 seconds.
In terms of power, handling, and style, the 2013 Ford Mustang lineup is the best stable of pony cars to date.
