2014 Ford Mustang carries Ford’s most loved essentials. Although everyone is waiting for something better and newer like the promised redesigned Mustang next year, but the Ford Mustang is still highly desirable.
This car provides plenty of muscle car thrills. It has a 3.7L V6 engine, which churns out impressively to 305hp. It has a praiseworthy 31mpg on the EPA highway cycle. The 2014 Ford Mustang brings more tire smoking power as expected with its 420 horsepower 50L V8 mix. It comes with an impressive range of options that includes brake upgrades, suspension, sync voice-activation system, and Recaro spot seats.
Unfortunately, we see that Mustang’s weak point is its interior where the cheap plastic trim has its share. Some people may the lack of telescoping steering wheel a little disappointing. But, in spite of this, we would still choose 2014 Ford Mustang from the rest of the talented group of Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, or Hyundai Genesis Coupe because it still offers a lot of entertainment value for a reasonable price.
