The Ford Mustang is an iconic American pony car that has been in continuous production in the US since 1964. Now in its sixth generation, it is one of only two cars to survive Ford’s cull of car models as the automaker shifts its focus to its more profitable trucks and SUVs. Ford is introducing an all-electric Mustang Mach-E for the 2021 model year.
The Mustang is available in eleven different coupé or convertible variations for the 2020 model year. It offers a turbocharged EcoBoost 4-cylinder or a V-8 engine, paired with 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. A 7-speed dual clutch transmission is available on the powerful Shelby GT500. The variety of choices, and the ability to personalize and performance-enhance the Mustang, appeals to many Mustang enthusiasts. For 2021, Ford has introduced the Mustang Mach-E, an all-electric crossover which shares the nameplate and styling of a Mustang but little else.
Complaints about the Ford Mustang include bubbling paint (particularly in the 2015 model) to vibration, doors opening while driving, fuel leaks, and complete engine failure. Many 2011-2019 models have recurrent transmission problems which owners in a class action lawsuit allege started when Ford switched from the Tremec to the Getrag transmission. 2020 model owners are already dealing with recalls related to the Out Of Park safety warning and a misaligned forward-looking camera which affects proper functioning of safety features.
