Reasons to Buy A Mustang


The new car buying process can be overwhelming. With so many vehicles on the market today, it can be hard to decide the vehicle that’s best for your lifestyle. Research is key when searching for a used car, but there are also many different outlets that all offer varying information about new cars. It can be hard to tell who to rely on for information!


That’s why Friendly Ford has put together this handy page to help simplify your decision. If you are looking for a new sports car that’s stylish, powerful, reliable and affordable, perhaps something that will turn heads when you drive it down the highway, then we have just the car for you: the 2016 Ford Mustang! The Mustang is an iconic sports (or muscle) car that has a long history of style, power and comfort. Read below for some of the best aspects of the 2016 Ford Mustang!



       Style – If you’re into sports cars and owning a sharp-looking vehicle is something that matters a lot to you, the Mustang will not disappoint. The Mustang is available as a coupe or convertible and is offered in plenty of different trim levels, including several EcoBoost models and the legendary Shelby trim. The body of the Mustang is unmistakable and is a great-looking ride on both the inside and out. You also may enjoy the unique selection of colors that are offered every year. The Ford Mustang has been turning heads for 50 years and no matter which one you choose, it will certainly get attention with its sleek shape and signature design.



            Performance – Mustangs are known for their strong V6 and V8 engines and amazing horsepower. Of course speed and power are synonymous with the Ford Mustang, but it also has very capable handling and offers an incredibly smooth ride. Even at the base level you can expect this vehicle to provide amazing performance. Your speedometer doesn’t have to be in the triple digits to have a good time. Whether it’s the acceleration you crave or just cruising down the strip on a Saturday night, the Mustang is just an all-around fun car to drive.



      Reliability - Reliability and safety should always be taken into account when car shopping. No one is calling the Mustang the perfect family car, but you won’t have any qualms about your kids piling into the back or riding shot gun since it received high marks in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s crash test rating. You can expect a three year/36,000- mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile power train warranty with the purchase of a new Mustang. JD Power has given it terrific reliability scores so you know it will hold up and stay in good condition for many years down the road.



      Practicality – No matter how flashy the car is, the purchase should still make good sense. If you do have a longer commute to work, you definitely don’t want to waste extra time and money at the gas pump. Check out one of the EcoBoost Mustang models - they're estimated at up to 31 MPG on the highway! It also comes with plenty of helpful safety and entertainment features that really come in handy and help make the ride a much more enjoyable one. One of the best features is Ford’s MyKey system which allows parents to limit the Mustang’s top seed and stereo volume in case their kids want to take it for a spin.



      Affordability – The 2016 Ford Mustang has a starting MSRP of just under $24,000. If you go with the convertible option it adds about $6,000. Either way you go you’re getting the best bang for the buck. It’s rare to see a car with this kind of performance at such a reasonable price. The 2014 Ford Mustang won Kelley Blue Book’s 5- Year Cost to Own Award for the sports car category, beating its closest competitor by nearly $1,000. When you also consider that it tops its competitors in fuel-efficiency, thus saving more money at the pump, it doesn’t get much more affordable than that.



The Mustang is clearly one of the best choices on the market for muscle car enthusiasts. Are you interested in taking a new Mustang out for a test drive in the Chicago area? Contact the sales team at Friendly Ford today! Our dealership offers a low-pressure sales process that’s, well, friendly!
