Ford Mustang 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Ford Mustang 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Mustang zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Mustang 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Ford Mustang engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

Introduction

The Ford Mustang is two-door convertible which has grown to an American institution and calling card. 

The Mustang did not intend to evolve into a performance car with true track and racing potential, evidenced by its growing pedigree and superlative Shelby GT350.


0-60 and Engine specs

The 2019 Ford Mustang is equipped with the V-8 power of three different kinds. The new base model has a 2.3-liter turbo-4 (310 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque) and makes 0-60 mph well under 6.0 seconds. The turbo-4’s power peaks early enough delivering a smooth drive. The active exhaust mimics bigger engines with more cylinders, but it sounds like the 4-cylinder (which it is, actually).

Ford Mustang GT performance 

It has as much grant as in a top-flight full-size pickup truck and is rated at 460 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. 

It is a fantastic performer with the newly rev-matched 6-speed manual transmission and great sprinter able to jet to 60 mph in under 4.0 sec.

The 10-speed automatic isn’t very compelling or comfortable when it’s hooked to the V-8 but is fine in a turbo. It does not cope with the copious power on tap because of the tuning. To cover the Mustangs peaks and lowest valleys properly it needs a new map, a flashlight, and a few rounds of calibration. 

The Mustang's V-8 soundtrack gets driver control. Not all Mustangs drive alike. Base cars and those without sports suspension have a common complaint. These cars steer quite nicely on small wheels and tires, with good weight programmed into the electricals. More self-control should be emphasized on the ride. 


Exterior & Interior 

Ford tweaked the headlights and rear end last year and left most of the rest of the car unchanged. It also lowered the nose by an inch, and the rear has C-shaped taillights that work well. The performance spoiler offered as an option doesn’t seem to work but thankfully can be deleted from the Performance package. 

The cabin has a plasticky look, but it can be nudged back into a dramatic look with the optional digital gauges. Gauges come with a higher grade of interior trim from contrast-stitched leather piped in red or blue on the Premium Mustangs and pricier models gear lever, door panels, and dash can be trimmed with carbon fiber.



Verdict 

The 2019 Ford Mustang is the sports car we need but sadly may not be the muscle sports car we deserve. 

Today’s mustang drives with verve whether it’s a coupe or convertible, a base car, a GT, a Bullitt or a Shelby. The mustang not only a bargain but also assertive in corners, throaty at full throttle, and by most performance-to-value yardsticks.
