From the 2019 Detroit auto show, Brian Wong reviews the redesigned 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, Ford’s most powerful production car ever.
What Is the 2020 Ford Mustang?
The Ford Mustang is a rear-wheel-drive, four-seat sports car that goes head-to-head with the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger. It’s available in coupe and convertible body styles and five main trims: EcoBoost, EcoBoost Premium, GT, GT Premium and the throwback Bullitt. High-performance versions include the Shelby GT350 and GT350R, along with the new Shelby GT500.
What’s New on the 2020 Ford Mustang?
A new High Performance Package features a version of the turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that’s rated at 330 horsepower — 20 hp more than the regular version. The package also includes aerodynamic, suspension and brake parts from the GT Performance Package. The FordPass Connect telematics system is now standard.
What Features in the 2020 Ford Mustang Are Most Important?
The base EcoBoost models come with a 310-hp, turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, and the GT gets a 460-hp, 5.0-liter V-8. Transmission choices include a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic.
Standard equipment on the base Mustang includes remote keyless entry, Sync connectivity, cruise control and manual air conditioning. Optional features include a touchscreen multimedia system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, heated and ventilated front seats, rear parking sensors and dual-zone automatic air conditioning.
Available active safety features include forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and automatic high-beam headlights.
Should I Buy the 2020 Ford Mustang?
The Mustang hits all the right retro buttons for muscle car enthusiasts; with a wide range of performance options, the venerable pony car is stronger than ever. It delivers style and powerful acceleration — especially with the available V-8 engines. Granted, the performance models have firmer rides, and the rear seat is best for kids or extra luggage. Yet, when it comes to bang-for-the-buck, the Mustang remains a thrilling choice.
