2016 Ford Mustang Chicago IL

The 2016 Ford Mustang styling changes are comprehensive but not radical. All traditional Mustang cues are there with a low, wide stance giving the car modern looks while preserving its classic heritage. For the new Mustang's second year, it gets new California Special, Pony, and Black Accent cosmetic packages. There are more ways than ever to customize the Mustang inside and out. Inside, there is an aviation theme with large, clear instrumentation in a roomy cabin. A newly available turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers strong performance. The new Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 model has an eight-cylinder (V-8), 5,200-cubic centimeter (cc) engine with the first application of MagneRide damper technology. The Mustang Convertible now has a standard multilayer insulated top for an upscale appearance, quiet cabin, and a sleek profile when down. Front-seat room is generous, and the optional Recaro seats are popular upgrades over the standard sport seats. The wide track and new independent rear suspension make steering and ride comfort superb. On safety, the 2016 Ford Mustang earns top ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and five-star scores across the board from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for the Mustang Coupe. Adjustable stability, steering, throttle, and transmission systems, standard rearview cameras, and optional blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise controls, and collision warning systems are all high-tech safety features. One other top feature available in the 2016 Mustang is Ford's new Sync 3 infotainment system.

Ford Mustang InteriorFord has made good provisions for interior storage in the Mustang; cupholders, a mobile-phone bin, and the universal serial bus port behind it are all in handy locations. The 2016 Mustang ride is quiet and refined. The V-8 engine sounds lovely and the exclusive GT 350 V-8 positively inspirational.

Ford Mustang Exterior

Last year's redesign brought better build quality but also increased actual size to a wheelbase of 107.1 and a length of 188.3 inches, essentially in the range of mid-size sedans. The most significant styling change for the Mustang is its profile, now more clearly reminiscent of recent fastbacks, not as fluid as the '60s originals but styled purposefully with a broad face and a roofline arc stretching gracefully over the cabin. The 2016 Mustang does very well in its general design and in the details. The black panel surrounding the taillights lies flat at an eye-catching angle. The triple-light slashes behind the grille have a distinct vibe.

Ford Mustang Powertrain

Last year the turbocharged four-cylinder engine returned to the Ford Mustang lineup for the first time since the Special Vehicles Operations Department days of the 1980s. For 2016, Ford will bring the GT350 back with a high-revving 5,200-cc V-8 plus a Torsen differential, oversize wheels, stronger brakes, and aerodynamic modifications. With Ford's first application of magnetorheological dampers the GT350 ride should go easy on the driver's spine. Ford's carryover six-cylinder, 3,700-cc, 300-horsepower engine powers the base car. The four-cylinder, 2,300-cc, 310-horsepower Mustang EcoBoost® can do 0-60 mph times of less than six seconds with strong low-end torque right where it should be. With either a standard six-speed manual or an optional six-speed, paddle-shifted automatic, the turbocharged engine feels most powerful once clicked through its driving modes into Sport, where the turbocharged four purrs pleasingly in its wide power band. In the GT, Ford's 5,000-cc V-8 is the leader that gets drivers interested at once with 435 horsepower, 0-60 mph times of about 4.5 seconds, and a 155 mph top speed.

With a strut suspension up front and an independent unit for each rear wheel, a limited-slip differential, and standard 18-inch wheels, the Mustang is nimble and forgiving, working its new rear suspension and electric power steering to great effect. Smoothly damped, the car has fine isolation from bumps in the road and steering precision in either Comfort, Normal, or Sport ride mode. Bring it down from high speed with four-piston brakes and thick treads and the Mustang tucks neatly into the next corner. Mustang drive modes set its throttle, steering, and stability controls and automatic-transmission shifting. For muscle-car drag racing, there is launch control for scintillating zero to 60 miles per hour (mph) takeoffs. If cornering is a bigger or better thrill, there is the Performance Pack option with a Torsen differential, Pirelli P Zero tires, Brembo brakes, braced strut towers, and stiffened sway bars, springs, and dampers.

Ford Mustang Safety

Mustang crashworthiness ratings are incomplete but among the highest for sport coupes and convertibles, and there are impressive safety options. IIHS ratings are the best, "Good," for the Mustang and Mustang Convertible in several categories. In NHTSA crash testing the Mustang earns top five-star ratings in all categories. Visibility is very good. There is a big rear windshield with a near-panoramic view and a standard rearview camera. Reverse parking sensors are optional on most models. Adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitors are available in mid-range EcoBoost models.
