The Mustang V-6 is not as much a sports car as it is a highway cruiser. If you look at this as a comfortable way to soak up the world around you, then have fun with the quick acceleration, set the stereo to the right station, and enjoy the experience of open-air driving.

The 2012 Mustang now features an impressive V6, a terrifically sorted chassis and fuel economy that’s as good as some mid-size sedans. Add in a base price under $23,000 and you’re looking at a genuine performance bargain.

The beautiful and powerful 2012 Ford Mustang GT convertible is a confounding juxtaposition of advanced new features and ergonomic oversights. The car’s price, fuel economy, looks and performance offset its faults, however.

The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is a track-tuned beast, and it should also be both great to drive and even potentially collectible.

It’s not as if Ford Motor needed any more ego strokes this year, but the Boss 302 is a very good car. In fact, if there’s ever been a factory Mustang that comports itself as well as this car, I will do Werner Herzog one better and eat both of my shoes.

I have a $150,000 sports car in my parking garage, and a U.S.-made 2011 Ford Mustang GT. After a day testing both, which to take out just for the thrill? “The ‘Stang, please.” You can find a little bit of greatness from every bit of this car.

The Mustang V6 could be the most significant car released this year. Ford’s transformed an uninteresting rental appliance into a legitimate performance car and kept the price down.

The 2011 Mustang V-6 is a damned good car. The 5.0, on the other hand, is better than damned good. Unless your shopping list starts at Gallardo money, it should include a Mustang GT.
