The 2020 Ford Mustang offers speed, style, and premium features at a price that’s equally striking.
What’s new for the 2020 Ford Mustang?
This year, the Mustang is rolling out more performance options than ever. With the EcoBoost Handling package, drivers can add the excellent MagneRide high-performance suspension, upgraded sway bars, and traction-boosting Pirelli tires.
And there’s more good news for EcoBoost drivers. The new EcoBoost Performance package increases the turbocharged four-cylinder engine’s output to 332 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, the FordPass Connect system is now standard on every Mustang trim model. This technology gives you remote access to your Mustang via smartphone app. Use the FordPass app to remotely start the engine or lock the doors.
Why choose the 2020 Ford Mustang?
Unlike the practical, family-friendly crossover or the rugged, work-friendly pickup truck, the 2020 Ford Mustang appeals to your emotions. If this sleek sports coupe has caught your eye, it’s likely because it suits your personal style and you want to drive it really, really fast.
Lucky for you, the Mustang has a lot more to offer than just speed! Inside, the front seats are demonstrably roomy for maximum comfort. And the Mustang is as stylish inside as it is on the outside, impressing with its tight construction and high-quality materials.
This pony car puts an emphasis on smooth-riding comfort. The Mustang’s independent rear suspension doesn’t just lend itself to sportier handling – it actually makes the ride smoother and more comfortable.
What are the 2020 Ford Mustang trim models?
The 2020 Ford Mustang is available as a coupe or a convertible. Coupes come in five trim models: EcoBoost, EcoBoost Premium, GT, GT Premium, and Bullitt. Convertibles are available in EcoBoost, EcoBoost Premium, and GT Premium trims.
Under the EcoBoost and EcoBoost Premium hoods, you’ll find a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that’s good for 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. GT and GT Premium models offer more of a traditional performance, with a robust 5.0-liter V8 engine that makes 460 horses and 420 pound-feet of torque.
In terms of comforts and conveniences, the EcoBoost and GT are similarly equipped. Both include remote engine start and keyless entry and ignition. The Premium variants of each model add luxuries like leather upholstery and stylish cabin trim. Premium models also enhance connectivity with the Sync 3 infotainment system and smartphone integration with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
The Mustang Bullitt is a special edition model. With its special dark Highland Green exterior paint and exclusive wheels, it’s designed to look like the original 1968 Mustang Bullitt. Otherwise, this model is equipped like the GT Premium.
Is the Mustang a muscle car?
When the first-ever Mustang hit the road in 1964, it introduced a new kind of American automobile class – the pony car. What’s a pony car? You’ll recognize ponies by their stylish exterior design, sporty powertrains, and affordable price tags. Mustang competitors, like the Camaro and Challenger, also fall into this category.
But – and this is a big but – there are some Mustang models that would meet anyone’s criteria for a muscle car. For example, the high-performance 2020 Shelby GT500 features a supercharged V8 engine that spits out 760 horsepower, putting it in a class above the rest.
