2020 Ford Mustang Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

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.
