2013 Ford Mustang

Very cool commercial. I love the fact that your can customize a mustang the way you want before you order it.

The 2013 Mustang raises the bar yet again with an even more impressive lineup of engines. There’s the Shelby GT500™ with the most powerfuel production V8 engine in the world – the 650-hp 5.8L supercharged V8 capable of more than 200 miles per hour on the track. The Hi-Po 302 Boss® 302 delivers 444 horsepower** and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. There’s the first-ever 305 horsepower, 31 highway mpg* V6 and the 5.0L V8 that pumps out a smoking 420 horsepower** and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. And all engines are mated to six-speed transmissions. For the crowning touch, you can equip your GT500 with the Performance Package, featuring Bilstein electronic adjustable dampers you access on the dash. Simply push a button to go from normal mode to the performance-oriented sport mode.
