2021 Ford Mustang
The 2021 Ford Mustang is a rear-wheel-drive, four-seat sports vehicle that competes with the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger in the American muscle car market. It’s offered in a coupe and convertible body variants, as well as five primary trim levels: EcoBoost, EcoBoost Premium, GT, GT Premium, and the new Mach 1. The EcoBoost is the base trim, while the EcoBoost Premium is the top trim. The Shelby GT500, which produces 760 horsepower, is the only high-performance Mustang available apart from Mach 1.
The Ford Mustang was offered in nine trim levels originally in the model year 2021:
- Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Fastback

- Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback
- Ford Mustang EcoBoost Fastback
- Ford Mustang GT Fastback

Performance and Fuel Economy
The 2021 Mustang does not attempt to conceal its voracious hunger for high-octane fuel. The Mustang comes in a plethora of configurations. Base turbo-4 vehicles are better. They start at 21 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, and 25 mpg combined with the 10-speed automatic transmission. With the automatic transmission, convertibles get 20/28/23 mpg.
The numbers may be as low as 19/25/21 miles a gallon when using a manual transmission. Fuel economy with the V-8 is 15/24/19 mpg for the automatic coupe and 14/22/17 mpg for the manual-shift Mach 1. The V-8 fuel economy is 15/24/19 mpg for the automatic coupe and 14/22/17 mpg for the manual-shift Mach 1. After selecting the GT500, the Mustang’s fuel economy increases to 12/18/14 mpg, an unabashed gasoline-guzzler.
Even the 2021 Mustang with a turbocharger is fairly speedy. The regular 2.3-liter turbo-4 generates 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, while a high-performance version produces 330 horsepower with a broader torque distribution. At its slowest, the Mustang can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6.0 seconds; when equipped with the 10-speed automatic, it can reach speeds in the mid-fives.
Design, Comfort, and Quality
Ford might serve as a model for other automakers to develop a long-standing nameplate throughout many stylistic seasons. Without question, today’s 2021 Ford Mustang is a behemoth, but it doesn’t have an uncomfortable appearance like a 4-Series, nor does it have a stripped-down cockpit like a Camaro. Only the Challenger comes close to it when it comes to heritage themes.
Because many Mustangs have ventured to defy conventional style, it’s simple to appreciate the most recent example. The rear quarter windows and roofline are reminiscent of the fastback Mustangs of the 1960s, and the front end is almost as upright as the rear. Wide front-end flares provide a strong yet elegant stance; character lines flow into a rear-end with sporty haunches. While there’s no denying that this Mustang is massive in terms of length and width, it’s also elegant and sensuous, right from its pony logo to its sequential taillights.
The driver’s seat is only 4-way adjustable, while the front passenger’s seat is 2-way adjustable. Premium versions include power seats in the front and leather upholstery instead of cloth; these are the ones you want unless you want to strap into one of the GT vehicles and sit in the fantastic but restrictive race-style Recaro seats available in the GT cars. The Mustang has ample head and leg space and a comfortable driving posture from any of the available driver’s seats.
Automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, active lane control, and automatic high-beam lighting standards on the 2021 Ford Mustang. Other safety features include a rearview camera and automatic high beams as an option. The Ford Mustang has a superior exterior vision to its competitor, the Chevrolet Camaro.
