There’s no car for sale on the market more iconic than a Ford Mustang. Since its introduction in the early 1960s, the Mustang has been consistently sporty, powerful, and affordable. Let’s lift the hood to see what makes the Ford Mustang the perfect choice for drivers that want a true classic muscle car with plenty of heart.
A Brief History of Ford’s Mustang
In the beginning, the Mustang’s classic long hoods and short rear decks inspired countless copycats from competitors. Though they’ve gone through many changes in body shape, power, and engine performance throughout their history, each generation of Mustang unveiled best-in-class features that set the standard for cars around the world.
2015 saw the 50th anniversary of the Mustang “pony car.” Now in their 9th Generation of models, you can expect elegance, raw power, and superb handling in every Mustang for sale.
Performance Engines Respond to You
Find a Mustang that matches your style.
The 2017 Ford Mustang operates with 300 horsepower, generated from a 3.7-liter V6 engine. That gets you plenty of acceleration on the highway with 28 MPG and a comfortable cruising fuel economy at 19 MPG inside the city.
Choosing a model with the four-cylinder EcoBoost® engine turbocharges your fuel efficiency, thrusting your highway efficiency up to 32 MPG and horsepower to 310. Even more – the EcoBoost® can take you to 60 MPH in a little over 5.5 seconds. Nothing else compares.
New Mustang GTs for sale feature 435 horsepower “Coyote” V-8 engines that growl, purr, and release the beast in manual and 6-Speed SelectShift® automatic options.
Whether you need power, performance, or both — there’s a Mustang waiting for you.
Safety at Every Turn with Ford Mustang
While Mustang is synonymous with muscle and showmanship, safety has proven time after time to be a leading feature in its design.
Ford strives for peace-of-mind at every turn. Newer Mustangs for sale have discarded their trademark solid axle suspension in favor of a track-tuned independent rear suspension on select models. This keeps your Mustang well-grounded with improved handling and quicker response action.
