In this review, we will focus on the original American muscle Ford Mustang. We are going to analyze the details about Ford Mustang, under three main categories such as; The Features of the Ford Mustang, The Fuel Consumption of the Ford Mustang and Does It Suit You? Before beginning the review, I would like to give some general information about the history of the Ford Mustang. Ford Mustang is one of the historically most important vehicles in the muscle car class. It has got a history of six generations. The car was announced at the New York World's Fair in the mid-60s. Production started in the mid-60s and continues today. Official statistics show that more than ten million Mustangs have been produced till the current day. This number clearly shows the importance of the vehicle in the sector.
The Features of the Ford Mustang
In this part of the review, we are going to focus on the features of the Ford Mustang. We can start with the exterior design. The design of the current generation started to be developed under the name of the S-550 project. The car was introduced in 2013 as a result of long-lasting design and technical works on it. When we look at the body design of the vehicle, it has a wider and lower design than the previous generations. Moreover, many details on the Mustang make it more aggressive and sportier. The front grille and headlight design are simplified. However, thanks to small details, the design looks much more modernistic. When we focus on the rear part of the vehicle, we can say that the brake lights have not changed much in terms of design. It is time to move on to the interior design. When we step into the car's cabin, it's basically the same design. However, we can say that it has been renovated with small details. As usual, Ford doesn't surprise us with a very simple yet handy design. The infotainment system draws attention in the center console, while the other controls are practically placed around it. Finally, let's take a brief look at the technological features of the Ford Mustang. The Mustang has all of the standard driving technologies of modern time. However, some technologies make the Mustang unique. The first one is, the Magneride Shock Absorber System. The Mustang uses the adaptive shock absorber system to adapt the road perfectly. In addition, the SYNC3 infotainment system provides everything for the driver to have a pleasant driving experience.
The Fuel Consumption of the Ford Mustang
Now, we are going to focus on the fuel consumption of the Ford Mustang. We usually work on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That’s why we are using this distinction method to make things easier for you. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as; The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. Ford Mustang has got two standard engine varieties such as; 2.3 and 5.0. We are going to analyse two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. We can start with the most economical one which is; 2.3 EcoBoost. It is a four cylindered engine structure with a 2261 cm3 size. 2.3 using a Petrol feed fuel system so we can say that it is a Petrol type engine. It can produce 290 HP and 5400 RPM Torque. According to the official factory data, 2.3 EcoBoost has got a 12,0lt/100km (which refers to 24 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption performance in Urban usage. However, this MPG Rate decreasing to 7,0lt/100km (which refers to 40 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage such as; Highways or Long Distance Trip. When we combine these two MPG data, we get a 9,0lt/100km (which refers to 31 MPG in the UK) average fuel consumption rate. Now we will focus on the most powerful engine, which is; 5.0 Ti-VCT V8 GT. It has got an eight cylindered engine structure with a 5038 cm3 size. It is a petrol type engine which produces 450 Horsepower and 7000 RPM Torque. 5.0 has got a 16,0lt/100km (which refers to 18 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption in Urban usage. On the other hand, this fuel consumption rate decreasing to 8,0lt/100km (which refers to 35 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage. When we gather these two MPG Performance, we get a 12,0lt/100km (which refers to 24 MPG in the UK) average MPG rate.
Does It Suit You?
Honestly, the Ford Mustang is not the most economical vehicle you can buy. However, there is a reason for it. The Mustang is an incredibly powerful vehicle. While the V8 engine makes your driving extremely enjoyable, it delivers this performance with a high fuel consumption rate. So, if you're looking for an affordable car, focus on the other options. However, if you are looking for a vehicle that will take you to another dimension with the sound of its engine, the Mustang is just for you!
