Loading Comparison...


The 2016 Mustang is in the second year of its sixth generation. It was a smash re-make for 2015, with a detailed exterior and interior, and excellent technology including leaps in electronic controls for steering, throttle, transmission, and stability. As well as safety, as winning five stars in all tests by the NHTSA, and Good ratings from the IIHS.

The Mustang comes in coupe and convertible versions.

The redesign brought the EcoBoost twin-turbo four-cylinder engine into the lineup, and now the iconic Shelby GT350, with a high-revving 5.2-liter 500-horsepower V8, available with a Torsen limited-slip differential, big wheels with Brembo brakes, and aero mods. It boasts the debut of Ford’s MagneRide magnetic suspension. Now the Mustang Convertible is also available with that Performance Package.

For the most part, 2016 changes are all in available razzle-dazzle: new wheels and hood striping, a black roof, and new packages: California Special Package, Pony Package, and Black Accent Package.

A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, with paddle-shifting 6-speed automatic optional.

The standard V6 with automatic is EPA-rated at 22 mpg Combined city and highway. The EcoBoost four-cylinder is rated 26 mpg Combined; and the 5.0-liter V8 at 19 mpg. The Shelby GT350 isn’t rated, but who cares?

Ford’s new Sync 3 infotainment comes in 2016. It basically rewrites the previous Ford system, a good thing we think.


You can get the Mustang in the V6 coupe ($23,800) or convertible ($29,300) or the V8 GT coupe ($32,300) or convertible ($41,800). The EcoBoost engine replacing the standard V6 adds $1500.

The Shelby GT350 is $47,795, which might be a low price considering how well it does in its rarified field. (All prices are MSRP.)

Then there are the packages, from Black to Pony to Performance to California Special. Standalone options, such as the Shaker Pro audio, are also available.


With all new sheetmetal for 2015, the Mustang endures as unmistakably Mustang, with muscular yet graceful lines on a low and wide stance, and Mustang cues all around. The fastback sweep from the late ’60s Boss 302 is back.

The Mustang commands stares with its presence, but if you look too hard or too long you will begin to wonder. Thin pillars will make you think of a Pontiac Grand Prix two-door. The panel around the taillamps channels Mopar. Triple light pipes in the headlamps would be at home in the ’70s.

There are two cool appearance packages. Black Accent has 19-inch black alloys, a black spoiler, dark taillamp trim, and pony badging. If you want to go all the pony way, there is the Pony Package, with chrome that tries to turn your Mustang into a time machine that takes you back to the early days. We’ll take black. With titanium paint. Striking.

The Convertible is now available with the Performance Package, making a very special car. The multi-layer insulated top is classy and quiet. No desire to go back to the old days of flapping canvas and freezing inside, not to mention manual labor.


The cabin is young, and richer than the Camaro, with better ergonomics. Tactile knobs and switches are airplane-like, well organized, neatly fitted. The gauges are large and deep.

The Mustang is the size of a Ford Fusion with the layout of a 2+2, so there’s more space inside than a Camaro, although we wonder where it goes. The back seats are tokens, and the trunk is not good for much more than weekends. But there’s good room in the front, and with the optional Recaro seats it gets racy.

Driving Impressions

The redesign vastly improved the steering, ride and comfort of the Mustang, to the point where it outclasses the Camaro in those areas. Finally with an independent rear suspension to replace the venerable live axle, a strong limited-slip differential, and standard 18-inch wheels, the Mustang is nimble, forgiving and flat.

Base engine is a 3.7-liter V6 that makes 300 horsepower. Nowadays those numbers from a V6 are common, but it’s still impressive. Not long ago you needed a V8 for good power, but now you only need one for super power. The irony is that 300 horsepower might not be appealing enough in the Mustang, competing with the heat of the 310-hp 2.3-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder, and the thunder of the 435-hp 5.0-liter V8.

The EcoBoost four can do zero to 60 in under six seconds, as the kick from 320 pound-feet of torque comes early. But the engine feels buzzy, not at all beefy like a V8, and the feeling is exacerbated by the artificial amplified sound coming through the speakers. That’s right: fake engine noise piped through the audio system. We think Ford should try again with the acoustics.

We buzzed through Los Angeles traffic and over Malibu canyons, in a four-cylinder with the paddle-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission, using the available driving modes. We had to, because the normal mode had too much throttle lag. In Sport mode the throttle and transmission response is sharp.

If you like the four-cylinder’s 320 foot-pounds of torque, you’ll love the V8’s 400, not to mention its zero to 60 time of 4.5 seconds or its top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited). But even the V8 doesn’t grumble like we’re used to. It’s like that visceral V8 feel that comes from the rumble of the exhaust is isolated. We’ll take the similar Jaguar 5.0-liter V8.

For the track, the Performance Package offers a Torsen LSD, Brembo four-piston brakes, Pirelli P Zero tires (255/40R19 front, 275/40R19 rear), as well stiffer anti-roll bars, springs, dampers and strut towers. , and stiffens up the sway bars, springs, and dampers. It sticks to corners and handles at well as the BMW M3, and maybe even better than the M4.


The Mustang V6 has come a long way baby, with 300 horsepower and a 6-speed manual gearbox. The GT will always be a Ford V8, except not always because its sound is stifled. The EcoBoost is the future. All of the new Mustangs handle and look great.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
