As the second-best sports car according to U.S. News and World Report, the 2020 Ford Mustang has a lineup of powerful engines, upscale interiors, and user-friendly features. The vehicle comes in four trims and several configurations. But how do you know which vehicle works best for your needs? Find out more about the five trims you should consider.
As the base trim, the EcoBoost comes standard with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 310 horsepower. It comes paired with a six-speed manual transmission, but you can opt for a 10-speed automatic one. There’s an optional 2.3L High-Performance package, which increases the horsepower to 330 and has front and rear sway bars, upgraded brakes, active exhaust, and a limited-slip differential.
Inside the vehicle, you will find cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a six-speaker audio system, a rearview camera, and the SYNC infotainment system. It also comes standard with the MyKey safety system, which lets you add audio and speed limits for secondary drivers and the FordPass Connect smartphone system.
This trim includes several upgrades, including dual-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, and six-way power-adjustable front seats. For technology, you can opt for a nine-speaker audio system, two USB ports, satellite radio, the SYNC 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touch-screen display, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
