The Ford Mustang has been an innovator since its debut in 1964, creating an entirely new segment known as the “pony car.” In the 55-plus years since, the Mustang has continued to lead its class with continual improvements that have transformed this two-door sports car from simple transportation into an icon of performance, engineering, and Americana. For maximum thrills, the Mustang gets even better with the Mach 1, a model that simultaneously pays tribute to the original Mach 1 of the 1960s while rocketing into the future of Ford performance at the speed of sound. And what a sound it is – the howl of the 5.0-liter Coyote engine will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, like it has done for generations of Mustang owners before you. Should you ever tire of that trademark Mustang exhaust note, the available 9 speaker premium audio system will make your favorite tunes sound better than ever, while available SYNC® 3 puts control at your fingertips – or the sound of your voice. The Ford Mustang may lean heavily on its heritage, but that doesn’t mean you have to forego the latest technology.
The Mustang Mach 1 backs up its unique, aggressive styling with more power than the Mustang GT (480 horsepower vs. 460 horsepower) and a standard Mach 1 Handling Package with an adjustable suspension, 19-inch wheels, and extra-wide Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Mach 1 buyers also get cloth Recaro® bucket seats that hold you tight in the corners and a serialized interior plaque that reminds you that your Mach 1 is a unique limited edition. A six-speed TREMEC® manual transmission is standard, while a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic is optional. This latest installment of the legendary Mustang Mach 1 is the best one yet.
From the EcoBoost® coupe to the Shelby® GT500®, the unmistakable shape of the Ford Mustang evokes the same feelings it has since its 1964 introduction. That’s because the Mustang has remained true to its roots as a high-performance sport coupe, with a long hood, a short trunk (but still reasonably roomy, with 13.5 cubic feet of space in the coupe), and a sloping fastback roofline. Of course, convertible models have a distinctive silhouette all their own that’s equally handsome with the top up or down. The classic three-segment taillights include sequential turn signals, while the wide grille features the unmistakable Mustang emblem front and center, as is tradition.
The Ford Mustang is built with high performance in mind from start to finish. The base 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine makes an impressive 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, and the available EcoBoost® High-Performance option takes things up a notch to 330 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, making the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® the most powerful four-cylinder engine in America. Step up to the GT and you get the legendary 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with 450 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, while the Mach 1 bumps that power up to 470 horsepower and adds numerous handling upgrades.
Old-school doesn’t have to mean old-fashioned. The driver-focused cockpit of the Ford Mustang combines the soul of a classic Mustang with modern comfort, convenience, and ergonomics. SYNC® infotainment is standard, along with a 6-speaker stereo system and FordPass™ Connect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. SYNC® 3 is available, as well as a 9-speaker stereo system for true audiophiles. Customizable mood lighting, optional performance sport bucket seats from Recaro®, and available leather seating surfaces allow you to customize your ride, your way. Luxury options, like dual-zone climate control and a power lumbar support, transform this sports coupe into an opulent grand tourer.
With great power comes great responsibility. In the Ford Mustang, you won’t have to go it alone. Every Mustang comes equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360™, a standard suite of driver assistance technologies that make each and every drive safer and simpler. You’ll get Lane-Keeping Assist, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, automatic high beams, and a rear view camera system. Also standard is AdvanceTrac® with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), as well as the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™. Dual front airbags, knee airbags, seat airbags, and side curtain airbags are all included as standard equipment.
