Ford has once again dominated the competition when it comes to performance models, particularly pony cars. The Mustang—the first pony car—was recently upgraded and earned the best sales of 2017 compared to other models like the Camaro and Challenger. The Mustang not only looks great and has an affordable price tag, but it also comes with an impressive powertrain.
You can test drive the 2018 Ford Mustang at Sun State Ford to experience this performance model in person. The 2018 model year recently swapped the V6 base engine for a tuned 5.0-liter V8 engine. In fact, the new Mustang GT is the fastest ever built, going from 0 to 60 mph in just four seconds.
The 2018 Mustang performance is truly impressive. The 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine has up to 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with a Drag Strip driving mode to help you excel on the track, and a smooth-shifting 10-speed transmission for prompt acceleration.
Believe it or not, the Mustang sales in 2017 totaled 81,866. While this is a slight decline from 2016—22.7 percent to be exact—the Mustang still blew away the competition. The Camaro sales totaled 67,940 for 2017, and the Challenger only managed 64,537. In other words, car shoppers seem to overwhelmingly prefer the Mustang to other models.
