THE 2013 FORD MUSTANG GT COUPE REVIEW
Summary Review by Tess: Top of the Pony Car Class
Widely recognized as the first of the classic pony cars, the 2013 Ford Mustang retains that same mystique which ran through American roads starting in 1964. A worthy successor to the legacy, the 2013 Ford Mustang GT coupe features a powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine that roars down the highway with the same confidence and attitude of its predecessors. With a 0 to 60 time of just 4.7 seconds, the 2013 Mustang GT has earned its place in the elite performance vehicle category and provides a healthy helping of what buyers look for in a world-class sports car.
Under the hood
The 5.0-liter V8 engine of the 2013 Ford Mustang GT delivers 420 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels. The six-speed manual transmission is standard and recommended, but buyers can also select the six-speed shiftable automatic transmission if they prefer a less raw experience. Fuel economy is average for the segment at 15 miles per hour in stop-and-go traffic and 26 miles per hour on the open road. Safety features for the Mustang GT include air bags, traction control, and antilock brakes. The Mustang also features the exclusive MyKey system from Ford that limits speed and stereo volumes for teen drivers to increase their degree of focus on the road.
Inside the cabin
While the Mustang GT nominally seats four, in practice it serves as a two-seater with plenty of cargo space in the backseat. Standard features include air-conditioning, a Shaker sound system with eight speakers, cruise control, leather upholstery, automatic headlights, a stylish rear spoiler, keyless entry, full power accessories, and fog lights. Options include Brembo brakes, automatic climate control, and a navigation system to help drivers get to their destination safely.
