You can find the word ‘stall’ in ‘stallion,’ but the wordplay contradicts reality. Rather than worrying about stalling on the streets, drivers of the all-new Ford Mustang will find themselves more concerned with the irresistible temptation to fly down the road. The sports coupe’s high-powered engines, manual transmission and other elements give the Mustang the horsepower necessary for and conducive to a thrill-ridden driving experience.
At its core, the Mustang is built for speed. Available for every model are new shock absorbers, a new rear suspension cross-axis joint and ground-breaking stabilizer bars, all of which contribute to better ride control and more efficient handling. Customization is also a key component of the new Mustang; with the Performance Package, MagneRide damper technology takes the optimization for handling and ride control up a notch.
Of course, no praise of a sports car’s speed capacity would be complete without a dedicated mention of its engine offerings. The new Mustang incorporates a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which lives up to its reputation for strong performance advantages – especially in comparison to the outgoing 3.7-liter V6 engine. Keeping torque in mind, Ford’s designers also incorporated transient overboost technology specifically calibrated for the Mustang to support wide-open throttle acceleration. Drivers interested in the 5.0-liter V8 engine will also be piqued by the direct injection and fuel injection upgrades for the Mustang, which give it increased fuel efficiency, high-rpm power and more. A revamped manual transmission and new 10-speed automatic transmission also lend hands to improving the overall efficiency of the vehicle.
