The new 2017 Ford Mustang all-American muscle car retains its trademark swagger and performance thanks to its confident highway cruising, appealing engine options, well-appointed interior, and capable handling. And unlike, the Mustangs of yesteryears, the 2017 model is more civilized and offers appealing road manners. The Ford Mustang release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.
Muscle Car Like No Other?
One aspect that makes the Mustang distinct is its genuine crossover appeal. Typically, muscle cars were regarded to be crude machines, but the perception seems changed nowadays thanks to the contemporary designs and refinement. It’s also classy and promises to offer any BMW or Audi buyers a reason to think twice. At the same time, it still manages to retain the tire-smoking exuberance expected of an American performance icon.
Why Is Mustang So Good?
Even with its unaltered specs, the new 2017 Ford Mustang offers lots of value, especially on its interior. The seats are supportive and comfortable and very appealing even for long trips. The new Sync 3 now replaces the much-maligned MyFord Touch infotainment system, and thanks to its swipe and pinch smartphone connectivity, it is now more responsive and easy to use than before.
The same beguiling formula that had everyone talking when it debuted is still offered by the 2017 Ford Mustang. It accelerates effortlessly and handles well even in mundane road conditions. Fuel efficiency is remarkable and is rated at 32 mpg on the highway. The interior is well-dressed and does so without seeming kitschy thanks to the aluminum dash inserts and metal-look toggle switches.
And just like before, its shape and exterior styling are gracefully intact. Lest you think the Mustang is without foibles, nitpicking has yielded: a bouncy ride quality and a cramped rear seat. Those are the bad things. As such, some other options worth considering include the Dodge Challenger, BMW 2 Series, and the Chevrolet Camaro.

Five trim levels are available for the 2017 Ford Mustang: EcoBoost, GT, GT Premium, V6, and EcoBoost Premium. The 2017 Ford Mustang Mach1, GT350R, and Shelby GT350R reviews are offered separately.
