It’s rare to find that perfect vehicle that not only fits your practical needs, but also, your wildest wants. For most of us, we’d love to place ourselves inside a premium sports car that burns rubber and turns heads. At the same time, for most of us, we also need something that’s safe, can seat passengers, and stay reliable. 

Luckily one such new Ford vehicle does exist: the 2016 Ford Mustang. For drivers who don’t wish to sacrifice ride excitement, a bit of rubber burning, and practicality, the 2016 Mustang offers quite a lot. It’s a civilized all-American muscle car that hits all the right spots. 

With several appealing engine options, capable handling, an attractive interior, and exceptional feel, the Mustang proves that history and a true American automaker know how to treat us just right. 

Part of the beauty of the 2016 Ford Mustang is that it’s available as both a coupe or a soft-top convertible. So you can drive around Shelbyville and Louisville with the top down to enjoy the rays if you wish. More so, it’s also offered in five trim levels that give you a wide array of entertainment and performance options. The base engine is the V6, and moving up you get the EcoBoost, EcoBoost Premium, GT, and GT Premium. Each trim has its own list of features and upgrades ranging from things like LED foglights, sport seats, 19-inch wheels, spoiler, sport-tuned steering, interior lighting, selectable driving modes, HD radio, and larger engines. 

The base engine in the Mustang is a powerful 3.7-liter V6 that produces 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. However, if you want it all, the GT trims equip your Mustang with a 5.0-liter V8 engine that knocks out 435 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. 

Overall, here at O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville, we think that the 2016 Ford Mustang is hard to pass up. If you want speed, muscle, and practicality all in one vehicle, we heartily recommend the 2016 Ford Mustang.
