If you happen to already be a Mustang fanatic, you will love the 2014 version even more. But if you are still not a Mustang fanatic in this day and age, get ready to be swept off your feet. The 2014 Ford Mustang has always been our favorite simply because you get the most driving thrill without having to sacrifice anything. Most of the higher end brands do offer a thrilling driving experience but for a ridiculously expensive price tag while some do offer a more reasonable price but at the expense of either the powertrain or the comfort. Those have never been the case with Ford Mustang. In all those previous years, we have seen this vehicle grow more and more to be the great and classic sports car it is today.

There might be more gorgeous and sophisticated higher end sports car today but we are totally sticking with the 2014 Ford Mustang. We have several good reasons behind this.

The 2014 Ford Mustang offers the same muscle strong power at an assertive price. In addition, this is the vehicle that offers the most engine options. You can choose between V6 and V8 engines with different transmissions. The V8 engine straightforward produces nothing but absolute road power. But the V6 remains strong especially when coupled with the six-speed manual transmission which our test drivers appreciated.

Fuel economy is another area where the 2014 Ford Mustang succeeds in. It is estimated at 19/31 mpg city/highway which would be the best figures we had seen so far in this segment.

Mustang has always exuded a certain old school charm that now not only appeals to guys but to girls as well. It gives off that certain feeling of vintage while remaining cool and hip. Are you even aware that despite the changes made to Mustang’s exterior, it still has the same old-school suspension setup?

If you want a muscle car that is still practical, go give the 2014 Ford Mustang a try and we are pretty sure it can help you decide from your test drive.
