Ford must be doing something right when their 55 year old legacy muscle car sells over 100,000 units per year for 5 years in a row. With the introduction of the 2020 Ford Mustang GT, these numbers are surely going to increase in comparison to other popular American muscle cars.
While Ford has kept most of the iconic styling and engine performance untouched, there are obvious upgrades. The 2020 Ford Mustang GT now features an independent rear suspension that allows you better handling, easier drifting and a ton of confidence when approaching a sharp corner at high speeds.
Al Tayer Motors gifted us their most prized muscle car for a week. It was a white Mustang GT convertible with the black accent package. One would get looks of approval, appreciation and even envy when you fold away the soft roof. It just takes 6 seconds to completely fold away, ideal for an Instagram story?
2020 Ford Mustang GT Specs:
Engine: 5.0 Liter – 8 Cylinders
Horsepower: 466 Bhp
Torque: 566 Nm
Drive System: Rear Wheel Drive
Transmission: 10 Speed (Automatic)
The absolute best part of this legendary muscle cars is its acceleration. Flick a switch in the center console and you are in the sport mode. It sounds even better, holds the lower gears for longer and delivers superb performance. We clocked the 0-100 km per hour speed at 4.3 seconds and loved every bit of it.
There are multiple drive modes in the Ford Mustang GT (Eco, Normal, Sport and Track). If you are looking for fuel economy, switch to the Eco mode. The driver display on the instrument panel changes with each drive mode. A super cool feature in our opinion.
Fuel tank can hold a maximum of 60 liters only. If you choose to drive on the sport mode at most times, the heavy fuel consumption would make you do quite few stops at the gas station.
Front seating is comfortable and offers 6 way power lumber support. The rear seating is a bit too tight for adults. So just consider it a two seater and keep the rear seating to hold some of your personal belongings.
Bang and Olufsen audio system is one of the best ones available today. When you have had enough of the melodious engine sound, you can connect your phone to car’s bluetooth and enjoy an equally fulfilling acoustic experience.
Obviously, there are things the Mustang can improve on. Its the basic look and feel of the infotainment display. It looks dated and behaves slow at times but offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
