Ford Mustang Pricing and Specs
When Ford announced its plan to introduce the Mustang into the local marketplace, even the company’s own executives were unsure whether Australians would warm to this all-American fastback muscle car in any significant numbers. But with the 'Stang collating 2000 orders and a 12-month waiting list before the first car arrived in a dealership, it seems they needn’t have worried. Available at launch with a big V8 in the $99,980 Mustang R-Spec, but also with a fuel-focussed four-cylinder engine in the $50,990 Mustang 2.3 Gtdi, the Mustang is a two door, four seat icon, available with a hard top or a convertible roof. It’s available with an automatic or manual gearbox.
This vehicle is also known as Ford Mustang GT.

Ford Mustang FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Mustang here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Will a twin-turbo Mustang come to Australia?
It seems to me that they're quite different cars; the Golf R is an under-the-radar raider, the Mustang an in-your-face statement. If you want an exhilarating drive on those weekends away go for the Golf, if you want a more leisurely fun drive with a high look-at-me factor go for the Mustang. For my money I would choose the Mustang. There is talk of a twin-turbo Mustang coming as a GT500 Shelby in 2018, possibly with a 5.2-litre V8. Not sure if it would make to Australia.Show more
Car bra or clear plastic covering, which is better?
I have no personal experience but know that car bras can chafe, potential cause overheating and can be difficult to fit and remove. Personally, and knowing that companies such as Porsche fit the clear plastics to all of their demonstrator cars for paint protection, I would choose it ahead of a car bra.Show more
Mustang, 370Z, IS350F, 86 or MX-5?
If you don’t want a convertible, which rules out the MX-5 as my easy first pick, then the 86 is the car for driving enjoyment on a reasonable budget. But don’t overlook its Subaru twin, the BRZ, which is my choice of the two. Both get The Tick, having shared our Car of the Year award.Show more
