THE 2013 FORD MUSTANG V6 CONVERTIBLE REVIEW
Summary Review by Tess: V6 Is the New V8
The 2013 Ford Mustang V6 convertible receives some minor updates for the new model year that include new LED-accented headlights and redesigned taillights, an enhanced grille, and a number of other cosmetic improvements. The Ford Mustang was the original pony car and continues to deliver on its classic mystique for a new generation of drivers. The fact that it manages 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds with the Performance package adds to its appeal, making it an exceptional choice for buyers who want the sports car experience at an affordable price.
Under the hood
The 3.7-liter V6 engine is the heart of this convertible and pumps out a reliable 305 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. That power is delivered smoothly to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual or optional six-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The Mustang V6 delivers outstanding fuel economy for the sports car class at 19 miles to the gallon in the city and an impressive 29 miles per gallon when out on the open road. Safety features include the exclusive Ford MyKey system that allows parents to set limits on their teen’s speed and audio volume. Air bags, antilock braking, and traction controls are also standard on the 2013 Ford Mustang convertible.
Inside the cabin
The 2013 Ford Mustang V6 convertible is available in two trim levels, both nicely equipped with an extensive array of standard features. The base trim level includes full power accessories, a basic AM/FM CD stereo system, keyless entry, air conditioning, and cruise control. Options include leather upholstery, power adjustable driver’s seat, an upgraded stereo system with iPod and USB hookups, automatic headlights, fog lights, ambient interior lighting, and two-zone automatic climate control. Recaro sport seats are also available for front row passenger and driver. Buyers can also opt for a wide range of cosmetic options including the classic Pony package of exterior enhancements.
On the road
The performance of the 2013 Ford Mustang V6 convertible is above reproach; it accelerates smoothly and swiftly to driving speeds and manages everything the road can throw at it. The manual transmission is preferred for more aggressive drivers, but the new shiftable automatic offers a more sedate version of the same thrill ride.
The 2013 Ford Mustang V6 convertible offers the real American sports car experience and combines that high-octane power with outstanding fuel economy. As a result, it is a preferred pick in the muscle car category and an affordable choice for most buyers.
