2017 Ford Mustang: Bold and Iconic

When most people think of the Ford Mustang the first thing that comes to mind is performance, and that is especially true for the new 2017 model year. The 3.7-liter six-cylinder engine that comes standard on the 2017 Ford Mustang is able to make an outstanding 300 horsepower with 148 pound-feet of torque, which means that it has plenty of snap when you put the pedal to the metal. On the other hand, the 2017 Mazda Miata is very underpowered in comparison. The 2017 Mazda Miata is only able to make 155 horsepower with 148 pound-feet of torque. Also, even though the Mustang is so much more powerful than the Miata, it still has a comparable fuel economy rating, which is a big selling point to drivers. Therefore, the new 2017 Ford Mustang is both fun-to-drive and efficient.

Another way that the Mustang is superior to the Miata is with its styling. The Ford Mustang looks sporty and completely modern without abandoning its iconic signature style.
