2016 Ford Mustang GT

We already mentioned that the popular Ford Mustang comes in plenty of configurations besides the elite Shelby versions, and the Ford Mustang GT is certainly no slouch. The 2016 Ford Mustang GT plays homage to this classic muscle car nameplate with a traditional, straightforward, and reasonably affordable approach to performance.

With a 5.0-liter V8 engine up front, the 2016 Ford Mustang GT produces 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Most reviewers appreciate the car’s power, noting that the engine sounds are distinctly those of an American muscle car. Buyers of the Mustang GT have the choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

Although the Mustang GT has the rumble of a classic American muscle car, it’s more refined. The 2016 Ford Mustang GT might not be the fastest or most powerful vehicle on our list of American muscle cars, but it offers practicality, without completely sacrificing the muscle car experience.
