For 2012, the Mustang gets a new hood and grille, plus LED accent lighting and standard HID headlamps. All Mustang models with the automatic transmission now get a SelectShift feature that allows full manual control. A Track Package has been introduced for GT models for 2013; it's offered only in manual GT Mustangs with the 3.73 axle and includes upgraded cooling, performance Brembo vented front discs, 19-inch alloy wheels and performance tires, and the Boss 302's Torsen differential. Also new to the Mustang lineup is a 4.2-inch LCD productivity screen that includes trip-computer functions, as well as a new Track Apps function--displaying performance metrics like g forces and acceleration times. And the Recaro sport seats that have until now been the exclusive domain of the Shelby GT500 and Boss 302 models are now available on other Mustangs. Deep Impact Blue and Gotta Have It Green are new exterior hues added to the Mustang palette for 2013.
Strong performance; excellent performance value; comfortable interior; a modern design with retro cues
The Mustang got an extensive redesign a couple of years ago, and it carries through with that same heritage pony-car look. Mustangs remain one of the strongest performance-coupe values for the money, thanks to prices that start in the low twenties and a bottom-line price of about $35k for a well-equipped GT Coupe. Additionally, Mustang Convertibles are one of the better picks for those who plan to make an impression when cruising and plan to carry passengers in the back seat. Meanwhile, the powerful Boss 302 version is the choice for those who plan to do weekend racing and are willing to give up a slight bit of comfort.
