Ford Mustang

Change Vehicle

The Ford Mustang debuted in April 1964 as a sporty, youthful car built on inexpensive mechanicals from the Ford Falcon compact car. The Mustang quickly proved a sales success and inspired a whole class of “pony car” competitors, including the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro and 1970 Dodge Challenger. By 1969, the Ford Mustang could be anything from a dressy six-cylinder coupe to a high-powered Boss 429 fastback with a NASCAR-ready V-8 engine shoehorned under its scooped hood. It's that ability to be whatever you want it to be that's been crucial to the Mustang's enduring popularity. Last redesigned for the 2015 model year, today’s Mustang coupe and convertible follow the pattern set by the original, with long-hood short-deck styling, a smallish backseat and rear-wheel drive.

2015–2019 Mustang

At a glance, the 2015 Mustang may have looked like an update of the 2014 model, but in reality it was an all-new car featuring an independent rear suspension. For the first time since the 1986 SVO version, the Mustang was available with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine good for a surprising 310 horsepower. A rework for 2018 featured updated styling, a stronger V-8 and turbo four-cylinder engines (the previous base V-6 engine was dropped), and a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

2005–2014 Mustang

Showing the 2014 Ford Mustang

The 2005 Mustang wore eye-catching styling inside and out that deftly recalled the classic Mustangs of the 1960s. During this car’s run it saw competition heat up with the reintroduction of its classic pony car rivals in the form of the 2008 Dodge Challenger and 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. Mustang evolution progressed steadily during this generation; highlights included the 500-hp supercharged Shelby GT500, a new 5.0-liter V-8 for the 2011 GT and the racetrack-ready 2012 Boss 302.

1994–2004 Mustang

Redesigned in 1994
Showing the 2004 Ford Mustang

The 1994 Mustang was a fresh design, but under its smoothly shaped body were some mechanical bits from the car it replaced. Base coupes and ragtops now ran V-6 engines, but hotter models like the GT and Cobra were V-8 only. Significant developments during this car’s run included sharper-edged styling for 1999, a Mustang-first independent rear suspension for the ’99 Cobra, a limited-edition 2001 Bullitt model (inspired by the ’68 Mustang Steve McQueen drove in the movie of the same name), and the throwback Mach 1 of 2003.

Notable Features in 2004
  • Choice of V-6 or V-8
  • Coupe and convertible body styles
  • RWD layout
  • Mach 1 and Cobra models
  • Color-shifting paint package for Cobra trim

1979–1993 Mustang

The Mustang was crisply redesigned for 1979, and an extensive update for 1987 delivered a more contemporary look and set the tone for the rest of this Fox-body generation. By 1992, the aging pony car was offered in two-door notchback coupe, hatchback, and convertible styles, with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder or 5.0-liter V-8. Ford added a more powerful limited-production Cobra hatchback for 1993.
