Bought a 2017 mustang gt PP used with 3600miles, at 5k car needed a new engine because of the infamous coyote tick that ford said was normal, clutch went out at 7k... never buying a ford car. Sticking to chevy

Exactly what I wanted, down to the color!

I knew what I wanted and what I expected. It’s all of that and more to me. It truly is the car of my dreams down to the color. And the price was amazing. Felt very comfortable with my decision and not a lot of pressure.

Only had it a few days but I am in love...

2017 Ford Mustang Overview


The 2017 Ford Mustang is a high performance, sport coupe that competes with the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger. Traditionally, the Mustang has been an enduring symbol for muscle car enthusiasts. The Shelby GT350 will be covered in a separate overview.

The sixth generation Mustang has a more blatantly aggressive style than previous generations. It is characterized by its angry headlights, wide front grille and fascia, and sharp angular forms. The Mustang comes as a fastback or a convertible. Standard features include power side mirrors, a dual-pipe exhaust system, and 17-inch wheels. Optional features include fog lights, heated side mirrors, turn signal indicators, a rear spoiler, and 18- or 19-inch wheels.

Powering the Mustang is a standard 300-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive (RWD). The EcoBoost trims come with a 310-hp, turbocharged 2.3 liter 4-cylinder, while the GT trims come with the 435-hp, 5.0-liter V-8. Fuel economy for the Mustang V-6 is an EPA-estimated 18/27 mpg city/highway. It improves to a 21/30 mpg rating for the Mustang 4-cylinder. The rating declines to a 15/24 mpg for the Mustang V-8.

Inside, the Mustang features a sporty interior with front bucket seats. The retro-inspired dashboard has circular instrument clusters and air vents. A big Mustang logo is emblazoned onto the horn of the three-spoke steering wheel. The standard audio system can be upgraded to the SYNC 3 multimedia system, which can include a touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, Siri Eyes Free mode, satellite radio, and a USB port. Standard features include air conditioning, cruise control, remote keyless entry, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Leather upholstery, a memory seat, heated/cooled front seats, push-button start, adaptive cruise control, automatic temperature control, and a Shaker premium audio system are also optional.
