Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Although Cars.com reviewer David Thomas is a muscle-car fan, the 2014 Ford Mustang GT just isn’t very exciting.

What Is the 2014 Ford Mustang?

The 2014 Ford Mustang is a rear-wheel-drive, four-seat sports car that competes with the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger and Hyundai Genesis. It is offered in V6, V6 Premium, GT, GT Premium and Shelby GT500 trim levels, all of which are available in coupe and convertible body styles.

What's New on the 2014 Ford Mustang?

For 2014, all Ford Mustang models feature revised instrument cluster graphics. In addition, two appearance packages are offered with V6 and GT trims, which add a rear spoiler, body-colored louvers for the rear-quarter windows, black-painted side mirrors and black aluminum-alloy wheels. The alloy wheels are 18 inches on V6 models and 19 on GT models.

What Features in the 2014 Ford Mustang Are Most Important?

The Mustang comes standard with a 305-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 engine and is available with a 420-hp, 5.0-liter V-8. Both engines are mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The performance-oriented Mustang Shelby GT500 features a 662-hp, supercharged 5.8-liter V-8. All Mustangs are rear-wheel drive.

Significant standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights with LED accents, air conditioning, a CD audio system with MP3 input and a 4.2-inch display that provides trip computer and performance information. Notable optional features include 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels, functional heat extractors on the hood (GT models), a navigation system, two premium Shaker audio systems and cloth or leather Recaro sport seats.

The 2014 Shelby GT500 includes a number of unique features, including the 662-hp, supercharged 5.8-liter V-8 that produces 631 pounds-feet of torque, enabling it to achieve a top speed of 200 mph. The Shelby GT500 also includes new gear ratios for the six-speed manual transmission, a new carbon-fiber driveshaft, a new clutch, 19-inch front wheels, 20-inch rear wheels, Brembo brakes with six-piston front calipers and larger rotors and pads throughout, quad exhaust tips and a downforce-generating grille. The GT500 is also offered with a Performance Package, which adds an electronically controlled Torsen limited-slip differential and an adaptive suspension.

The 2014, the Mustang's standard safety features include an electronic stability system, antilock brakes, frontal and front-seat side-impact airbags and Ford's MyKey system. A backup camera is optional.

Should I Buy the 2014 Ford Mustang?

The 2014 Ford Mustang offers stunning performance in relation to its price - and impressive performance even independent of what it will cost you. This is especially true of the Mustang Shelby GT500, which offers a truly exhilarating drive that makes its gaudy output numbers tangible.

The Mustang is certainly not a practical vehicle, and it's a poor choice if you prioritize versatility or family-friendliness. But if you're looking for a sports car that offers white-knuckle thrills and speed that will push you back into the seat when you press down on the gas, the Mustang is very much for you.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
