2016 Ford Mustang Information
When the all-new Mustang first hit the streets earlier this year, automotive publications raved about its styling and performance. Available with a new Sync 3 infotainment system, the 2016 Ford Mustang continues to offer an exciting driving experience. Special editions such as the Black Accent and California Special give the Mustang a show-worthy appearance. Meanwhile, the pony car's five-star safety rating makes it an even more appealing daily-driver.
Like the previous model, the base power source is a strong V-6 engine. A Ti-VCT timing system helps it to produce a satisfying 300 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. Drivers who desire turbocharged performance can step up to the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. With a total output of 310 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque, it is among the most powerful four-cylinder engines on the market. In terms of fuel efficiency, EcoBoost trims can deliver up to 32 mpg on the highway.*
Sticking to tradition, a thunderous V-8 engine sits under the hood of the GT model. The 5.0-liter engine punches out a mighty 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. High-flow ports help the "Coyote" engine to remain lively at all times. By activating the GT model's launch control feature, the car can hit 60 mph in a blistering-fast 4.5 seconds. Like the rest of the lineup, the GT is available with a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission.
Although the new Mustang benefits from an updated appearance, the interior still features a lot of retro touches. The classic steering wheel and retro dashboard will give drivers a sense of nostalgia. High-quality materials are used throughout the entire cabin.
Even the base model comes loaded with a lot of gear. Xenon headlights give the driver excellent visibility when traveling at night. If a parent allows their teenager to get behind the wheel, they can use the convenient MyKey feature to set a speed limit. Some of the other standard items include key-less ignition, a rear-view camera, sequential turn signals and Bluetooth technology. Ford's all-new Sync 3 infotainment system features a simplified interface that is far more responsive that the old version. Ventilated seats and a dynamic Shaker Pro audio system are also available on the higher trim levels.
The 2016 Ford Mustang provides outstanding crash protection. According to Edmunds, the available Performance package enables the Mustang to deliver one of the shortest stopping distances in its class. Adaptive cruise control and a blind-spot monitor are also available for Corvalis Ford shoppers.
