2013 Ford Mustang
The 2013 Mustang features an aggressive new look. From its redesigned front end featuring a splitter and unique LED (light-emitting diode) accents in the head- and taillamps to body accents, the 2013 Mustang is a sleek representation of raw modern raw power. Of course, the signature pronounced curves, kicked-up haunches and dual exhaust system that produces the unique Mustang roar were kept.
The 2013 Mustang raises the bar yet again with an even more impressive lineup of engines. There’s the Shelby GT500 with the most powerfuel production V8 engine in the world – the 650-hp 5.8L supercharged V8 capable of more than 320 km/h on the track. The Hi-Po 302 Boss 302 delivers 444 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque and the 5.0L V8 that pumps out a smoking 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. And all engines are mated to six-speed transmissions. For the crowning touch, you can equip your GT500 with the Performance Package, featuring Bilstein electronic adjustable dampers you access on the dash. Simply push a button to go from normal mode to the performance-oriented sport mode.
The 2013 Mustang cockpit blends world-class craftsmanship with premium materials. A seamless, soft-touch skin wraps the one-piece instrument panel. The floor console runs in a smooth, flat arc for precise shifting, while the shifter features a uniquely modern retro look. For comfort and support, you can add available race-inspired integrated RECARO cloth or leather-trimmed seats. The available Shaker Audio System with HD Radio delivers an impressive audio performance. Available ambient lighting glows in your choice of seven colors to match your mood. For an added touch, you can choose available aluminum-styled interior accent panels.
The Mustang 5.0 engine pays homage to the original 5.0, delivering 420 horsepower eight more horsepower than the previous engine – and 390 lb.-ft of torque. The powerplant features twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), an aluminum engine block and cold air induction to help pump out more power. But that’s only for starters. The 5.0 also has a compression ratio of 11:1 and a cylinder head designed to optimize airflow. From the High-Energy Coil on Plug design that allow the pistons to run cool, every part under the hood is designed to work in harmony. This lets the muscular engine breathe efficiently and deliver 100 percent exhilaration every time you hit the gas. And then there’s the exhaust delivering a distinctive throaty roar. Purely Mustang.
