In today’s economy, all smart drivers put a high value on value itself, and that’s even the case when they’re looking for 420-hp rear-wheel-drive performance cars like the Ford Mustang GT. Which is perfectly fine from the point of view of the Augusta Ford Dealership, since the mighty Mustang was just named one of the country’s “best-value” cars by Edward Loh, editor-in-chief of Motor Trend magazine.
Getting down to the nitty-gritty here, the 2013 Mustang GT is stickered from just $30,300 at dealers like Ford In Houston, yet the feature-filled Ford delivers the kind of power and performance usually limited to vehicles that cost much more. For example, its advanced 5.0-liter V8 engine is an engineering marvel, with technologies like twin independent variable camshaft timing, a unique cylinder-head design for superior airflow, and a high-energy ignition system. All that and more adds up to both the aforementioned 420 horses as well as a ground-thumping 390 lb.-ft. of torque.
Also in the mix with this Mustang are things like 18-inch aluminum wheels, electronic stability control, driver-tunable electronic power-assist steering, a premium sound system, dual stainless-steel exhaust, HID headlamps, LED fog lamps and sequential tail lamps, a “power dome” hood with heat extractors and more.
Throw in particularly low ownership costs—as verified by the experts at Intellichoice.com—and it’s easy to see how the Mustang GT earned its high-value, high-performance credentials.
It’s also easy to see the 2013 Mustang GT itself, since it’s on sale now at Ford Dealer IN and local Ford dealers.
