Ford Mustang 2021

The 2021 Ford Mustang range of configurations is currently priced from $58,868. Our most recent review of the 2021 Ford Mustang resulted in a score of 7.4 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing Journalist Stephen Ottley had this to say at the time: Ford’s decision to go back to the Mach 1 continued its retro theme, following the Bullitt Mustang special edition, but it isn’t stuck in the past. The changes made to the Mach 1 over and above the GT make it a genuinely better car, with superior handling on the road and the track.

This is what Stephen Ottley liked most about this particular version of the Ford Mustang: Sharper handling, Throaty roar from V8, Retro styling touches

The Ford Mustang is also known as the Ford Mustang GT in markets outside Australia.

Ford Mustang 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Mustang here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Is the 2018 V8 Mustang worth the money?

    That's the big question on our lips too John, and I'm afraid we won't be able to answer it until we drive it when the car arrives in June. Given the Mustang's popularity, I'd be very surprised if dealers were willing to deviate much from the recommended price after launch. Perhaps 18 months down the track when demand subsides though!

  • Should I buy a demo car?

    Demos are not generally abused; they are mostly driven normally with reasonable care, often under the supervision of a salesman.

    You’re worried unnecessarily, and besides, the car will still be covered by Ford’s warranty if it happens to have a problem.

  • When will the 2018 Mustang arrive in Australia?

    A Ford spokesman told us: "The 10-speed automatic will be available in the 2018 Mustang, which is due in Australia most likely around mid-2018 at the earliest. An evolution of the current Mustang, the 2018 model will benefit from increased Driver Assistance Technology, including Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane-Keep Assist. We would not speculate on the outcome of any potential future testing, but would reiterate that consumer safety is a priority for us, and we are constantly developing more safety technology for consumers. The 2018 Mustang will benefit from such advancements." With respect to a safety rating we can't say what it will be until the new Mustang has been assessed by ANCAP, but you would expect it would be given a higher rating than the Mustang currently has.

  • Is the 2017 Mustang V8 safe enough to buy?

    Ford says that the Mustang has met all relevant safety standards in America, which they say demonstrates that it is a safe car. But the Mustang is now a relatively old model, having gone on sale in the USA in 2014, and it doesn't have some of the safety features most other cars have. While it's lacking in some areas, it's not an inherently unsafe car, it's just not as safe as other cars that have a 5-star rating. Ford says the 2018 model will have features such as AEB, so perhaps wait for that.
