PASMAG 2016 Ford Mustang GT Black Package 01

Ford Mustang GT
I just couldn’t put this list together without including one of the best performance values for a traditional V8 muscle car guy. While the 2017 Mustang isn’t the quickest horse in Ford’s stable, the GT represents the kind of power, fun, and driving pleasure that few other cars at the $33K price point can bring. With the complete redesign of the rear suspension, we finally get a Mustang that handles corners as well as it burns rubber in a straight line. With the GT’s 5.0-liter V8 power and torque, it has all the abundant, tire-smoking performance we've come to expect from this venerable nameplate. Although there are Mustangs available with V6 and turbocharged four-cylinder engines, none of them can really be called performance choices. I say go with the GT and real V8 under the hood, and you’ll turn every grocery run into a true mission.
