Should I Buy the 2021 Ford Mustang?

The Mustang hits all the right retro buttons for muscle car enthusiasts, and 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, performance models’ ride is on the  firmer side, and the rear seat is best for kids or extra luggage. But when it comes to bang-for-your-buck, the Mustang remains a thrilling choice.
