Mark Takahashi Mark Takahashi Score Pending 2013 Ford Mustang Coupe

All things considered, the 2013 Ford Mustang GT has received a lot of enhancements that don’t get in the way of its core attributes. It’s still the same raucous tire-smoking beast that brings a smile to anyone with a pulse.

The latest 2013 Ford Mustang can carve up a track just as well as its competitors and can even put some much more expensive models to shame.

Our brief time behind the wheel of the new 2013 Mustang GT showed that this pony car has lost none of its step as it approaches the age of many of its drivers. Constant improvements help the Mustang brand to keep pace and in some cases even surpass the competition.

The 2013 Ford Mustang features a facelift and comes out bigger, bolder, cleaner. We’re less enthusiastic about the interior. But with 11 models ranging from 305 hp and about $23k to 650 hp and $60k, if you like Mustangs at all, there’s one for you.

I’m not sold on all the visual updates, and the interior needs work; so does the coupe’s crashworthiness. But the Mustang still combines scrappy fun with everyday livability.

The 2012 Mustang line delivers more features and more refinement than any so-called pony car line-up before, not to mention a whole lot of performance per dollar.

The Ford Mustang Boss 302’s tactile details—the engine’s thunderous power and sound, the cue-ball shifter, the suede steering wheel, the precise chassis and optional sport seats—combine for a supremely charismatic and entertaining American sports car.

Staff Review MotorWeek 7.2 out of 10 2012 Ford Mustang Coupe

Fortunately, you don’t have to be a big boss to afford the Ford Mustang Boss 302. While it’s not cheap, you get a lot of car for the money, and a real performance bargain. We’re pretty happy with the 2012 BOSS, and think anybody looking to work with some serious muscle will be, too.
