Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The Mustang is the heart and soul of the Ford brand- AutoGuide

Big, muscular, and strong – that’s what the Ford Mustang GT evokes in you. It has always carried the essence of its forefathers ahead with every consecutive generation. The Mustang GT is a very versatile car, it rides well and is great to live with every day. What's most impressive is the price at which it is offered. At this price, there is no other car that has so much character and so much performance to offer.

The Mustang GT has slightly less maintenance and repair costs than its rivals. Buyers can expect an annual ownership cost of around $8,900 per year, which includes the aforementioned costs plus depreciation, insurance, and fuel. On that note, the Mustang GT has the lowest fuel costs thanks to its fuel-efficient engine. On the reliability front, the Mustang GT's rating is on par with the Challenger at 85 points.

Ford makes the 2020 Mustang available in a variety of performance flavors, and they all have their purpose- The Car Connection

The Ford Mustang GT comes in just two trims. The base trim has a starting price of $35,630 while the top-end GT Premium trim's price is just under $40,000. Note that a destination charge of $1,095 is applicable. Both the trims are eligible for performance upgrades but the GT Premium trim adds some zing to the appearance as well.

The GT Premium is just $4,000 more expensive than the standard GT. It's definitely worth the features it adds. For a crisper experience at the track, $6,500 GT Performance Package Level 2 might be just as well in order. This package adds Brembo brakes, MagneRide adaptive suspension, front aerodynamic splitter, track-tuned springs, power steering and sway bars, strut tower brace, larger rear spoiler, a rear limited-slip differential, and summer tires.

Engine and Performance
7.0/10

Even without any performance options, this Mustang GT is a hoot to drive- Edmunds

The 5.0L V8 engine in the Ford Mustang GT produces 460 hp and 420 lb-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual or an optional 10-speed automatic for $1,595. The engine is really refined and energetic. It delivers power linearly and smoothly and when you put your foot down, it delivers a surge of power to push you on your seat. What's also amazing is the bassy burbling of the V8 engine. The engine note is really sweet. The manual has short throws and slots into gears easily and the clutch is easy too. The automatic transmission is smooth and quick when left in auto mode. 

2020 Ford Mustang GT engine

The Mustang GT is quite versatile when it comes to its ride quality. It has a pretty decent ride quality for a sports muscle car. Body roll is very well contained through fast corners and you can easily carry good speeds into a corner. Opt for the Performance packages and the car rewards with even better handling but the suspension gets stiffer of course. The steering is pretty good too. It remains light and easy at low speeds and weighs up quite adequately as you pick up the pace. There is a good amount of feedback from the front wheels and you can tell how much grip your front tires have. 

2020 Ford Mustang GT front driving view

The Mustang GT does the 0-60 MPH sprint in 4.2 seconds which is pretty quick for the class. The acceleration is thrilling and the engine can be silent enough to let you slip by the city streets unnoticed. Put it in the Sport mode and you can get the chills down your spine as it tears up the canyon roads with a thunderous roar. Its low curb weight adds an advantage to its braking abilities. The pedal feel is adequately firm and inspires confidence and you find good stopping power when you put your foot down. The Mustang GT takes 118 ft to come to a smooth stop from 60 MPH and that's great for a sports coupe.

The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack houses the biggest engine in this competition which leads to heavy curb weight. Therefore, it is the slowest car. On the other hand, the less-powerful Chevy Camaro LT1 turns out to be the quickest one thanks to its low ground clearance. Even the Camaro has a big engine but GM has done a great job in hiding its weight.

Fuel Economy
5.0/10

The Mustang's fuel economy is sadly also no better than big-engined competitors- Carbuzz

Fuel economy should not be your priority if you are looking at a big, burly, American muscle car. However, the Ford Mustang GT defies all odds and is the most fuel-efficient muscle car. according to the EPA, the MPG figures are 15 in the city and 24 on a highway with a combined figure of 18 MPG. These figures are more or less equal to its rivals. 

2020 Ford Mustang GT front view

What makes it different from its rivals is its efficient engine. However, the Mustang GT comes with a small 16-gallon fuel tank, due to which can deliver only 288 miles of combined range. It is the lowest compared to its archrivals. Nevertheless, it doesn't matter as long as there is a fuel-efficient engine under the hood that can reduce fuel costs.

The large tank of the Chevy Camaro translates for the best driving range in this competition. The fuel efficiency of the Dodge Challenger is the worst here but thanks to its large tank that saves it from delivering less range than the Mustang. Overall, the Mustang GT is an economical muscle car. 

Interior
8.7/10

There's nothing rough, just classy materials, attractive gauges, supportive seats and cool metallic toggle switches- Autotrader

Just like the exteriors, the Ford Mustang GT's interiors are characterized by strong lines and bold surfaces. The interior design is sporty but there are quite a few cheap plastics which is a letdown in such a car. The AC vents sit on top of the dashboard. The gear selector is a nice chunky one and feels good to operate. On the passenger side, the dashboard has a Mustang badge on a sculpted surface.

The front seats are pretty comfortable and come wrapped in leather. They are also heated and cooled and offer 6-way power adjustment with lumbar support for the driver's seat while the passenger's seat is 4-way power-adjustable. They are quite supportive and hold you well indeed. The rear seats are unusable and can only fit small children if need be. Overall, it's a good place to be and you could spend long hours here easily.

 

2020 Ford Mustang GT infotainment system

The 8-inch infotainment screen sits below the AC vents followed by the climate controls and toggle switches for various vehicle settings. The central screen could have better graphics. The infotainment system is pretty easy to use and responds to touch quite adequately. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard offerings. The optional 12-inch digital instrument cluster looks quite cool and is worth the upgrade.

The Mustang GT has a pretty good boot size in this class. It offers 13.5 cu-ft. of boot volume which is large enough to pack in the luggage of two people for a weekend-long drive. You can also fold down the rear seats for more practicality. The wide trunk opening makes it easy to load items. Some other cool interior features are noted below:

  • Aluminum foot pedals
  • Color-adjustable ambient lighting
  • Tilt & telescopic multi-function leather steering wheel 
  • Illuminated scuff plate
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Power front leather seats
  • Heated & ventilated front seats

Exterior
9.0/10

The Mustang’s exterior is a mash-up of old and new thinking -Kelley Blue Book

The Ford Mustang GT is certainly a head-turner. It's probably one of the best-looking muscle cars that you can buy. The bonnet swoops gently into the large grille with the pony sitting in the middle. The headlamps are sleek and full LED. The fog lamps too are LED units. The front bumpers boost some beautifully sculpted air scoops along with a subtle bumper lip. The Mustang GT has the shortest wheelbase which helps it to burn out quickly. Keep in mind, this also affects its rear legroom. 

2020 Ford Mustang GT front angle view

The sides are flanked by two sharp lines that cut out the muscle of the car and make it really pronounced. The standard 18-inch wheels look good enough but you can, of course, opt for larger ones to give it an even sportier look. At the rear, the GT badge sits in the middle flanked by the signature sequential LED tail lamps on the two sides. If you opt for the Performance package you get a large rear wing. Also, the quad exhausts along with the rear diffuser look very sporty indeed.

The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is the bulkiest car among the competition. Despite being the most powerful car here, its heavyweight pulls it behind the Mustang and the Camaro in terms of performance. With just 4.5 inches of ground clearance, it's easy to get in and out of the Chevy Camaro. Moreover, this low ground clearance also assists to increase the potential for speed on smooth roads. Some other exterior features include:

  • Black grille
  • LED headlights
  • LED DRLs
  • LED taillights
  • LED fog lamps
  • Body-colored rear spoiler
  • Quad exhaust chrome pipes
  • 18 & 19-inch alloy wheels
Safety
8.3/10

The Stang is also available with more driver-assistance technology than any pony car- CarAndDriver

The Ford Mustang GT was given a perfect 5-star rating in all the crash tests, including frontal, side-impact, and rollover crash tests. In the case of IIHS, not all crash tests were conducted. Out of five crash tests, the Mustang GT received a 'Good' rating in four tests and an 'Acceptable rating for the driver's side crash test. 

2020 Ford Mustang GT NHTSA crash test

From these ratings, we can conclude that the Mustang GT is a safe vehicle. Standard safety technologies in this car are limited. Hence, to keep your ride safe, you have to upgrade to the Ford Safe & Smart Package that adds some of the best safety features. Also, eight airbags are available, out of two of them are curtain airbags. Other safety features include:

  • Rearview camera
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Forward collision warning
  • Forward automatic emergency braking
  • Lane departure warning
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Pedestrian detection

2020 Ford Mustang GT vs 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 

The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is the most expensive muscle car in this competition and its big V8 makes the most power. However, the Mustang GT benefits from the better overall performance. The Challenger's cabin is more spacious and practical than the Mustang. Its Uconnect infotainment is standard while you have to add some infotainment features in the Mustang. The Mustang holds its grip back as it offers slightly more safety features and not to forget its fuel-efficient engine. 

2020 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack

2020 Ford Mustang GT vs 2020 Chevrolet Camaro LT1

The Chevrolet Camaro LT1 is the truest competitor to the Mustang GT here. Both are thoroughbred muscle cars and have large V8 engines churning out similar power outputs. In fact, the Camaro is the fastest car here. Where the two cars differ is in their character. While the Mustang is a very versatile car, the Camaro is the one that is more performance-focused and has that extra bit of the thrill factor. Both cars look impressive inside out and with a price margin really small, it comes down to personal taste and preference here. 

2020 Chevrolet Camaro LT1
Final Verdict
7.9/10

The Ford Mustang has always been synonymous with classic American muscle cars. No other car epitomizes the spirit of muscle cars as much as a Mustang does. The 2020 iteration of the Mustang GT has come a long way and it's better than ever before. It looks handsome, has good interiors, and packs in some decent amount of technology as well. It handles well enough and it sure is a fast car. The Mustang GT really glorifies the pony on its hood.

Cumbersome to drive.

Pros - Looks, Engine sound.

Cons - Engine vibrations, Handling, Transmission.

Plenty of engine vibrations. I have been driving a Ford Mustang for a while but it didn't amaze me in most ways. It looks good and the engine sounds really good, that's pretty much the good thing about it. On the negative side, the engine has lots of vibrations at high speeds. The steering response is also very sluggish. The car feels all over the place while driving on twisty roads. Furthermore,...

Pros - Powerful, Design.

Cons - Stiff ride, Tiny storage.

Not for regular use I test drove the Mustang GT and after 10 minutes, I felt like I was seated on a wooden plank. The drive was fun but definitely isn't practical for a regular commutes. I'm happy that these guys let me test drive their car for a decent amount of time and they didn't pressurize me to book the car post that.

Pros - A torque heavy car. Beautiful gearbox. Sleek and angry stance.

Cons - Poor storage space. Stiff ride.

Too stiff for a regular use The Mustang GT is basically a track ready car made to abide a few regulations and norms to make it road legal. The car has so much torque that a step on the throttle just pushes my entire body against the seat. Its really easy to get this car do a wheel spin but what make the drive even more enjoyable is the manual gearbox. The shifts are so lively and thrilling that i...
