Last year's redesign saw a two-year Mustang makeover that began with the car's exterior. Classic design themes are interwoven with upscale details such as a one-piece soft-touch dash set off by brushed aluminum and bright-chrome accents. The V6 is refined, quiet and more than capable of making the Mustang's performance match its looks. A complete re-skin put a finer edge on the Mustang's classically proportioned design while resurrecting several historical elements. And, Ford's new six-speed manual no longer feels like something pulled from an old Ranger pickup truck, providing smooth gear transitions and an easily engaged clutch. Both engines can be fitted with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, while the V6 models receive as standard a limited-slip differential. An icon of Ford's lineup since the mid-'60s, the rakish Mustang receives the second half of a comprehensive two-year makeover that elevates its horsepower, chassis dynamics and overall bad boy attitude.
Driving It Ford did an impressive job of remaking the Mustang's dynamic character for 2010 with a series of well-measured tweaks to the existing suspension setups and tuning elements culled from the Bullitt model. Additional attention has been paid to sound proofing, including new door seals and thicker glass. For 2011, the Mustang receives two new engine choices: an all-aluminum 3. New safety features include integrated blind spot mirrors in the side-view mirror housings. The base trim is powered by an all-aluminum 3. Vehicle Details If the Mustang holds a superior advantage over its arch-rival, the Chevrolet Camaro, it's inside the cockpit. While its strongest appeal will be to the Mustang faithful, the latest iteration of this American icon now has the look, feel and features that should make it worthy of consideration by anyone shopping for a sporty, rear-drive two-door.
Ironically, Ford does not offer a manually selectable shift program on this transmission, and odd omission in this category. For 2011, Ford finishes the job with two-new engines and transmissions. Comprehensive Interior Upgrades Better quality and enhanced features make it a much nicer world inside every 2011 Mustang. To make your best deal, be sure to check its Fair Purchase Price on kbb. Those requiring the loud growl and neck-snapping punch of a V8, however, will be satisfied with nothing less than the new 412-horsepower, 5. All 2011 Ford Mustang variants are impressively packaged.
Recalibration of the springs, shocks and anti-roll bars interact to create a package that's more comfortable in cruise and more capable in the corners, with better steering feel, quicker overall responses and greater predictability. The result is a V6 that produces 305 horsepower, yet delivers fuel economy comparable to some four-cylinder cars. Highlighting the mix are a new one-piece soft-touch dash and more finger-friendly controls that are further complemented by variable interior ambient lighting and selectable MyColor illumination for the instrument cluster on Premium models. Two new engines anchor the non-Shelby portion of Team Mustang. The V6 Premium offers the base-level upgrades plus the V6 Performance Package, which brings a strut tower brace, larger anti-roll bars, 19-inch black painted wheels, recalibrated electronic stability control, performance brake pads and a 3.
