We all have a stronger reaction to some cars than others. But sometimes, it can be hard to explain why we prefer one model to another, especially if they seem similar. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with going with your gut and getting the car that feels right to you, and the one that will make you the happiest! But sometimes, whether it’s to help us make a choice or to simply understand a decision, it can be good to have solid data to back us up. That’s why Vincentric’s “Best Value in America” awards are so helpful. Automotive data company Vincentric releases an annual list of cars that they deem the “Best Value in America,” based on price of the cars as well as a statistical analysis of ownership costs like maintenance, depreciation, insurance, and more. And we’re thrilled to say that for the sixth year in a row, the Ford Mustang has topped the Sports Car category!
Of course, this is hardly the first award the new Ford Mustang has garnered recently. The 2015 Ford Mustang has won eleven awards and counting since it debuted, including an Edmunds.com Most Popular award, a Kiplinger’s Best New/Redesigned Car award, and a coveted spot on the Car and Driver 10Best list. While the accolades show that the 2015 Ford Mustang is popular and respected amongst experts, the fact that this new Ford has become the top selling sports car in the country since it was launched shows that it is equally beloved by drivers. So whatever your reasons for picking it – gut feeling, data and expert opinions, or word of mouth from happy drivers – don’t be afraid to invest in the car you really want! We can help you today right here at O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville. Ford models of all shapes and sizes are waiting on our lots, and we can’t wait to find the right one for you!
