The 2014 Ford Mustang GT slipped quietly into the dealerships as an early release. Because this model is going to be replaced with a brand new version for 2015, it just didn’t seem to make sense to create too much fanfare for the current model. While it retains most of the previous version’s features, it does have a few nice updates and Pony Lovers should be thrilled. In fact, classic Pony fans might want to consider driving this version home, because it still has a more traditional “muscle car” image, including a more austere dashboard.
Whether you choose a classic color like the black 2014 Ford Mustang GT in the image or opt for new color options (Ruby Red Metallice or Oxford White) is up to you. You won’t be able to get your hands on a Boss 302 with this lineup though. The rumor is it will appear again someday in some new configuration, but for now, it’s adios and you will have to make do with something else.
The 2014 Ford Mustang GT has the same 5.0 liter V8 engine as the last model, not that anyone is complaining. It still offers up 420 horsepower and 390 pound feet of torque to offer some of that Fast and Furious driving vibe. It seems the EPA estimates might be set a little high. They state 26 miles per gallon where most drivers are reporting getting around 21 miles per hour. Still, for this go-mobile that’s not bad and all and let’s face, people who opt for a high performance Mustang aren’t that concerned with squeezing fuel efficiency.
The 2014 Ford Mustang GT isn’t going to impress the techy crowd too much with its absence of a touchscreen, but for those who love getting back to their roots of muscle car glory, with more speed than you probably thought possible a few years back, then this pony is definitely worth the test drive.
