Ford Mustang models: what’s included
There’s two common models to choose from when you’re buying a used Ford Mustang, both available as a fastback coupe or convertible. Here’s an overview:
Ford Mustang EcoBoost Fastback / Convertible
The Ford Mustang EcoBoost starts with a 2.3L turbo petrol engine. You can opt for either the 6-speed manual transmission or 10-speed auto with paddle shifters on the Fastback, and 10-speed auto is the only option for the convertible model.
Features include 19x9-inch alloy wheels, five different drive modes, customisable ambient lighting, leather gear knob and stitched shifter boot, multi-function tilt and telescopic leather steering wheel, keyless entry with push button start, heated and cooled leather accented seats, bluetooth connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, premium sound system, rear parking sensors, and a whole lot more. The EcoBoost is designed more so for agility over power, with a well-balanced build as a sports car.
Ford Mustang GT Fastback / Convertible
The Mustang GT also comes as either a fastback or convertible, with a powerful 5.0L V8 engine, 6-speed manual or 10-speed auto transmission. Equipment on the Mustang GT is similar to the EcoBoost, but you opt for features like forged alloy wheels and paddle shifters. The Mustang GT is the more popular choice, specifically for its V8 engine that packs a punch, and rev matching transmission on the Fastback model.

The Ford Mustang shows off like no other. It wakes up with a lively growl once you hit the starter, ready to unleash the V8’s power and excitement that comes with it.
