Affordable, powerful, and highly customizable—there’s very little doubt why the Ford Mustang is the world’s bestselling sports car of the last 50 years, the world's bestselling sports car for five consecutive years, and the most popular car model on Facebook, with almost 8.5 million likes to its name.

Locally, the Ford Mustang comes in four different trims with two engine options—a 5.0-liter V8 for the GT variants (460hp, 570Nm) and a 2.3-liter Ecoboost for the Fastback (310hp, 434Nm), priced from PHP2,585,000 to PHP3,718,000. Both engines are mated to a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, but the convertible variant comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox option.

The Ford Mustang cabin welcomes drivers to a 12-inch LCD instrument cluster—the first all-digital display ever offered for the model. What’s nifty about it is that it allows users to customize colors, gauge layout, selectable drive modes, and more. A MyMode system lets drivers set their drive settings and remembers them for the next use. That even includes steering and suspension preferences.

The onboard SYNC 3 infotainment system housed in an 8-inch TFT color touchscreen is as advanced as these systems can get, allowing for voice activated responses along with the capacitive touchscreen with impressive responsiveness. The intuitive and user-friendly system lets users connect to and control their smartphone, while also providing real-time navigation. The audio system includes Shaker Pro Audio with HD Radio Technology providing AM/FM stereo, single-CD/MP3 player functionalities and 12 speakers – one of which is an eight-inch trunk-mounted subwoofer. Thanks to HD Radio Technology, reception is crystal clear, with no audio distortion, buzz, popping or static.
