How the Ford Mustang Combines Style and Power

The Ford Mustang is an iconic car known for delivering power and style. Car enthusiasts love the classics, but this car has more than nostalgia on its side. Modern Mustangs combine power and style as effectively as they ever did. However, the latest models have a contemporary edge. Read on to learn how Ford continues to impress with the modern-day Mustang. 

Refined Engines 

Most of a car’s power comes from its engine, so Ford constantly refines the engines found under the hood of the Mustang. Each release brings new engines that are better than the ones before. By increasing the size of its engine components and carefully fine-tuning them, horsepower and torque are increased in the 2020 Mustang. By experimenting with new technology, including turbo, variable valve timing, and the addition of more valves, the Mustang in always on the cutting edge. These innovations help you get the most out of your engine.  


Reducing the mass to power ratios also helps the Mustang increase its power with every release. 

Power Throughout the Range 

Many brands deliver power at the top end of their range but make fairly gutless base models. Not Ford, who makes sure each and every Mustang has some get-up-and-go. The entry-level Mustang features a 2.3-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that delivers 310 horsepower. The standard six-speed manual transmission helps you make the most of available power. However, you can choose the 10-speed automatic box if you prefer. This car probably won’t win a street race, but it’s got what you need for zooming along highways and open country roads. 

The Most Powerful Street-Legal Ford in History 

While the base model performs well, people who love power are likely to be more interested in the top trims. The new Shelby GT500 is the one grabbing all the headlines thanks to its eye-watering muscle. It features a supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 engine and a TREMEC seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Those elements combine to create Ford’s most powerful street-legal car. Its engine generates 760 horsepower, propelling the GT500 to a top speed of 186 mph. 

Individual Styling Sets Each Model Apart 

Power is a key selling point, but the Mustang may not be quite as legendary without its style. Ford knows Mustangs evoke nostalgia, so it retains retro features from classic models. However, new design touches also celebrate contemporary trends. 

Mustangs are instantly recognizable, regardless of their trim. Although, these vehicles aren’t interchangeable. Ford gives each Mustang its own distinct features to set them apart. RECARO racing seats, a rear spoiler, and a large hood vent make the Shelby GT500 feel like an elite racer. Green hand-stitched accents, a cue ball shift knob, and heritage wheels make the BULLITT feel like it’s come from another time. 

If you want a powerful vehicle that doesn’t skimp on style, the Ford Mustang is for you. Classic Mustangs are known for their power and style, and the latest models do a great job of keeping that going. This car will deliver all the contemporary innovations that modern motorists crave.
