2017 Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang’s

face is familiar here at the Car and Driver office. We just wrapped up a 40,000-mile long-term relationship with a 2016 5.0-liter GT, and for the most part, it was a hit. This latest generation of Ford’s pony car debuted for the 2015 model year—the nameplate’s 50th anniversary—and incorporated a standard independent rear suspension, which reflected a shift toward a more capable sports car rather than a straight-line muscle machine. It has simmered nicely and will present a fresh visage as part of a mid-cycle refresh for the 2018 model year, which we’ve already seen. For 2017, this Ford continues in six forms, excluding the high-performance Shelby models.
