If you’re in the market to buy a new Ford Mustang we can give you some advice (besides please consider buying it from Carbone). Or, to put it more clearly, Auto 123 has some advice. That invaluable site has put together a buyer’s guide for the 2013 Ford Mustang.
Just to start, there are four different models of 2013 Ford Mustang:
- Boss 302
- Shelby GT500
In that order, each model costs more than the last and has a more powerful engine to match. All (but the Boss 302) comes in a convertible look, as well.
But other than bare stats, how should you choose between the different models of Mustang? I tend to prefer the Boss (even though its hard top only). In Auto 123’s words,
The Mustang Boss is incredible. It’s difficult not to get excited about a car that goes really fast around a corner and really fast on the way out. The Boss 302 features the same 5.0L V8 as the GT, but is configured to sacrifice some low-end grunt for extra oomph higher up in the rev range.
It hits a sweet spot in cost-to-performance. Though if you just want to get your foot in the door (and what a nice door it is), you really can’t go wrong with the surprising affordability of the V6 base model.
