I've driven 3 totally different Mustangs in the past year — and this one was my favorite (F)
- I’ve driven three different versions of the iconic Ford Mustang in the past 12 months.
- They’ve ranged rom the peppy Ford Mustang EcoBoost four-cylinder to the beastly Shelby GT350.
- In the end, I liked the least powerful Ford ‘Stang the best.
The mighty ‘Stang has been in continuous production ever since and has recently become the world’s best-selling sports car, as Ford has taken the bold two-door global.
Ford has been having some troubles of late. This week, CEO Jim Hackett announced that it would spend $11 billion restructuring over the next three-to-five-years. It’s also looking for lower profits in the 2018. But nobody expects the Mustang to go anywhere. In fact, a gas-electric hybrid could be on the way.
Over the past 12 months or so, I’ve been able to sample three different flavors of Mustang: the entry-level turbo four-cylinder, the sweetspot GT with a 5.0-liter V8 — and the brutal Shelby GT350, with its 5.2-liter V8 engine, dubbed “Voodoo,” that can make 526 horsepower and, thanks to its flat-crank design, a sweetly aggressive exhaust note.
They’re all different, all fun, and all Mustang. So which did I like best? Read on to find out.
We’ll go in ascending order of displacement. First up, the Mustang turbo, which I sampled in convertible trim.
Mustangs have obviously come a long way since the ’60s, but the general idea remains the same: a sporty coupe.
Mustangs have always been sharp rides in hardtop or ragtop form, and the turbo is no exception.
