Selected Edmunds.com visitor vehicle reviews:

I made the mistake of test driving the GT after owning an older V6 mustang. Night and day difference in terms of performance. Without trying you can get your pulse up in just a sec. Not just a straight line car though. Very tight and handles great through the turns. Wasn't looking for the premium package, but the refinement was quite nice. Very comfortable leather seats and nice materials throughout. Gave what I thought was a long shot offer to the dealer and they accepted without even countering. Very pleased with several thousand off MSRP with one of the first 2014s out of the factory. Great fun to drive, plus I can still get around 25 mpg on the highway. Looking forward to driving more.


Reap the powerful advantages of the 2014 Ford Mustang's more than 400 horsepower: better performance, and even better fuel economy.

More transmission speeds7, more horsepower8, and more torque9 make the 2014 Ford Mustang the clear winner when it comes to pick-up, power, and acceleration, the trifecta of automotive awesomeness.
