Even with its widely recognizable retro design that debuted in 2005, the 2008 Ford Mustang is every bit a modern-day sports car. Available in Coupe or Convertible body styles, the Mustang features engines ranging from a 4.0-liter V6 to the top-of-the-line 5.4-liter supercharged V8 available in the Shelby GT500 and GT500KR. Buyers have a choice between a 5-speed manual transmission, a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic, with horsepower ranging from 210 in the base model to 500 in the high-end Shelby GT500. The Mustang features a long list of standard equipment.Read more Read less
The iconic Ford Mustang remains largely unchanged for 2008, though new exterior colors are available; Vapor Clearcoat Metallic, Dark Candy Apple Red Clearcoat Metallic, and Silver Clearcoat Metallic replace Tungsten, Redfire, and Satin Silver. The top-tier Shelby GT500 adds only Vapor Clearcoat Metallic. Ambient interior lighting and high intensity discharge (HID) headlights will debut as an option on all Mustangs. V6 coupes will now offer 18-inch premium polished forged wheels, and all V6 cars will offer an optional Safety & Security Package, which includes anti-lock brakes, traction control, an active anti-theft system, and a wheel locking kit. Front side air bags become standard across the range. V6 and GT convertibles can be ordered with the same high-quality fabric top found on the Shelby GT500 Mustang convertible. Three special-edition Mustangs are planned for 2008: the "Warriors in Pink" Edition on V6 Premium coupes and convertibles with the automatic; the 315-hp Bullitt Mustang; and the 540-horsepower Shelby GT500 KR "King of the Road" Mustang, with just 1,000 available.
Bold, all-American styling; available as a coupe or convertible ranging from mild to wild; high bang for the buck across the range; impressive safety.
The 2008 Mustang is a best bet in the fun per dollar category. The 4-liter V6 with 210 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque is a comfortable commuter that offers decent performance and fuel economy rated at 17 mpg city/26 mpg highway, while the potent 4.6-liter V8 with 300 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque available in the GT gives far more expensive cars a run for their money. The Mustang GT is the most affordable performance V8 available today.
