2011 Ford Mustang Review

More About This Model

We're 10 years into the 21st century, but some things never change. The Yankees are world champions, the national debt is at record levels and the 2011 Ford Mustang GT is powered by a 5.0-liter V8. But while the latest Mustang's engine size sounds familiar, just about everything else under the hood is radically different. Major mods include an advanced new all-aluminum V8 engine capable of 412 horsepower, a new V6 power plant making over 300 hp and two new six-speed transmissions.

All this comes just one year after an aggressive exterior and interior upgrade for the iconic pony car, and Ford says the emphasis for the 2011 Ford Mustang is on craftsmanship, fuel economy and technology. This is over and above the looks and performance emphasis the company feels every Mustang has received throughout the car's history (well, maybe not the Mustang II). Craftsmanship efforts can be seen in the higher-grade interior materials and reduced road noise at highway speeds.

Fuel economy takes a leap forward with EPA ratings of 19/31 mpg for automatic-equipped V6 models and 18/25 mpg for 2011 Ford Mustang GTs. Finally, technology makes an appearance in features like the latest voice-activated Sync system for audio and navigation control, and the new MyKey system that allows parents to restrict the Mustang's top speed and audio functions when their children are behind the wheel.

Why has Ford put so much energy into improving its venerable 45-year-old pony car? Fans might suggest it's Ford's way of paying homage to one of the longest-running and iconic nameplates in the automotive world. Cynics would likely point to the increased pressure on the Mustang coming from Chevrolet's new Camaro and Dodge's recently revived Challenger.

Did Ford really need to wait this long to retire that boat anchor of a 4.0-liter V6? Did a certain 3.6-liter, direct-injected V6 (with GM badging) play a part in the decision? Regardless of the forces behind these upgrades, the 2011 Ford Mustang represents a vastly improved performance coupe at the start of a new decade.

Should I lease or buy a 2011 Ford Mustang?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
