FORD MUSTANG GT
With the average price of a new car $18,400 and escalating, value is more important than ever. A case in point is Ford's Mustang GT, a vehicle whose roots stretch to the mid '60s. The second largest automaker's “pony car” pioneered an entire class of small, sporty vehicles, its popularity at least partially due to pricing closely tracking the industry average. Today it continues to cling to its “popular base price point” philosophy, though it stumbles performance-wise.
Inside, the top-line Mustang GT is Spartan but not unattractive. Its twin front cloth leather buckets are extremely comfortable and heavily padded, though the armrests are rock-hard. The rear bench is usable only by children, but the trunk is spacious. The dash carries an adequate number of analog instruments, the steering wheel’s padded, and the column tilts. The standard power-assisted rack and pinion steering works well, but more attention to switchgear “feel” is necessary. Dual airbags enhance safety along with power 4-wheel disc anti lock brakes, there’s a single, uniquely designed cupholder, and nook and cranny storage space abounds.
In the all-important engine compartment, the reason for the hot-rod GT Mustang’s existence, this venerable beast falls short. For '96 this 3,278-pound vehicle uses Ford’s new 4.6 liter, 215 HP, fuel-injected V8. Expect this ultrasmooth, quiet engine with its 100,000-mile maintenance interval to deliver 0-60 times of 7.3 seconds, the bottom of the class. Fuel efficiency on this rear-wheel driver was observed at 16 city and 23 highway (EPA 20/27), both competitive numbers.
The close ratio 5-speed manual transmission and light clutch performed adequately. Shifting isn’t a chore, but neither is it world class.
The GT’s ride is adequate, its handling superb. A rigid body structure civilizes things, though harshness and jounce too often creep through over large road irregularities. Handling is top of the class excellent, with comers negotiated with only minor lean. The tires, huge Goodyear Eagle Z-rated performance types, were specially designed for the vehicle and work extremely well. The turning circle, at a measured 39 feet, is disappointing.
What’s the verdict? Tile GT lacks arch-rival Chevrolet Camaro Z28’s 6-speed transmission, gives away 65

horsepower, is missing more than a liter of displacement, and is priced hundreds higher. Even the six-cylinder 200 HP Camaro will challenge the GT to 50 miles per hour! If you want a competitive Mustang, you’ll have to purchase the limited production, 305 HP, $26,500 Cobra, which is only sold through designated “Special Vehicle Operations” dealers. Despite personally being a
hard-core Mustang fan, the Ahura Integra GS-R or Ford’s own Probe V6 are better overall performance vehicles than the standard Mustang GT. It hurts to say the obvious: buy something else!
