2013 Ford Mustang: Ford’s Best Muscle Classic

Ford’s famous muscle sports car returns again this year, the 2013 Ford Mustang. The Mustang might be old, but it still has plenty of power and speed to compete with the best. There are two engine variations- first is a 3.7L V-6 that produces 305hp, 280 lbs. of torque and a fuel rating of 19 mpg city/31 mpg highway. Second, the 5.0L V-8 that produces 420hp, 390 lbs. of torque and a fuel rating of 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway. Transmission can be manual or automatic, but fuel rating goes down a bit with manual transmission.

The 2013 Mustang ideally seats only two passengers, as its rear seats have little room. Trunk space is decent at 13.4 ft3, plus critics say the materials used in the interior were excellent, soft and delicate to touch.

Along with a choice of a coupe or convertible, there are five trims offered – V6, V6 Premium, GT, GT Premium and Boss 302. Features depend on what trim. All models have xenon headlights, air-conditioning, keyless entry, blind-spot mirrors, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 4-speaker audio system w/ CD player and auxiliary audio jack.

The high end Boss 302, available only in coupe, is equipped with a more powerful V-8. Also, you can go for the limited-edition Laguna Seca model which has sporty features like aerodynamic enhancements, race-compound tires, plus no more rear seats.

The 2013 Mustang earned good scores in safety and crash tests, earning great marks for frontal/side protection and also in the rollover test. Standard safety features include front-seat side airbags, antilock disc brakes, stability/traction control, hill-start assist, and emergency-trunk release. Also included is Ford MyKey, for setting a speed limit and volume level.

The price of the 2013 Mustang starts at $22,200. High-end trims with all the bonus features can reach up to $60,600. Some might say the Mustang is outdated. They might retract that once they’re inside one of the fastest, stylish and well-loved muscle cars of all time.
