There’s something undeniably nostalgic about muscle cars. These speedy and powerful vehicles are the quintessential American vehicle, a car that hearkens back to the days when Steve McQueen was the reigning “King of Cool.”
That being said, legacy cars often find themselves in a quandary: how do you retain that sense of nostalgia without being stuck in the past? Luckily, vehicles like the 2016 Ford Mustang attempt to bridge the gap between old and new with excellent results.
Muscle Under the Hood
This year’s crop of Mustangs come with four engine configurations, but even the base model, which has a 3.7-liter V6 engine, can generate up to 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. If that’s not nimble enough for you, you can get the topline trim which sports a 5.2-liter V8 engine that makes a walloping 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque.
Fast--But Not Reckless
While the Mustang brand built its legacy on impressive power, the 2016 iteration is also packed with technologies that keep drivers safe during everyday drives. These include features such as blind spot monitoring to alert of nearby but less-than-visible cars, as well as a forward collision alert that warns you when it detects an impending front-side crash.
Powerful But Not Wild
For the first time in its history, the Mustang will sport an independent rear suspension. What does that mean for you? Simple: you can expect smoother rides during day-to-day driving.
