Just looking at the Mustang GT/CS made our heart beat faster. Now imagine revving behind the wheels of the firing 5.0L / V8. You can feel incredible horsepower of 421 HP and 530 NM of torque. We could feel the thrill ride with the slightest of pedal acceleration. It seems this euphoria of exhilaration you feel is what designers and engineers had in mind while designing this engine.
It comes with six-speed select shift automatic. A great highway fuel economy as powertrain settles down to an effortless cruise, however, city economy isn’t as good…but who cares! with such a cool car. It is the most dynamically athletic Mustang produced ever and very much a wild automobile.
An inside-out beauty with microfiber inserts in the seats and contrast stitching. An impressive touch on the passenger's seat is a sassy li’l dash plaque. The rear seats are pretty cramped up for adults, but well it is a sports coupe what else will one be expecting? Considering Sports Coupe styling, the model has an impressive luggage room. The gauge for speeds and revs are in deep and round binnacles. The cabin is a comfortable place to be in and the multi-functional three-spoke steering wheel is useful with the attractive galloping trademark Mustang pony in the center.
Its different Drive Select modes, Steering modes and features like Traction Control and Blind Spot Monitoring really enhance the performance abilities of this vehicle.
The Mustang’s previous MyFord Touch infotainment system has been replaced by the new Sync 3 system which is quicker and way easier to navigate.
A great 12-speaker Shaker audio system giving a rich and robust sound provides with a youthful vibe.
