The New 2021 Ford Mustang
A Blur Never Looked So Good
It’s the classic performance car that only gets better. This year, Mustang introduces the aeronautically inspired design and unprecedented performance of the all-new Mach-1 and Mach-1 Premium. There’s also the icon that is the high-powered and monumental Shelby GT500® . If you’re looking for fun with the top down, there’s also the EcoBoost® and GT Mustang convertibles. And because your Mustang should fit you, there are 18 different wheel styles, new unique color choices, a range of available seats and a ton more opportunities to customize your ride.
Mach-1 performance is clear even before you get behind the wheel. Its streamlined design and exterior styling cues include a new front fascia and grille for both improved cooling and aerodynamics. Plus, low-gloss Magnetic and Black accents as well as hood and body-side stripes celebrate Mach-1 heritage dating back more than five decades. Inside, comfortable and conforming Recaro cloth sport seats support you while a Mach 1 IP badge with a unique chassis number complements the distinctive look and feel of the all-new Mustang Mach-1.
Now Make It Yours
The Mach-1 Premium was built for precision on curves, on the straightaway and in the driveway. Its sculpted build includes 19-inch Magnetic-painted aluminum wheels, a bright 4.5-inch exhaust tip and a hood accent stripe. The premium design flows into the interior with aluminum pedals, a Dark Spindrift aluminum instrument panel and a white cue ball shift knob. So strap in to the cloth seats with driver memory recline, color-accents and climate control, and embrace the adrenaline.
Like Looking Down a Loaded Barrel
The Shelby GT500 uses race-inspired materials for a reason. A purpose-built cockpit with available RECARO® racing seats and a class-exclusive* 12-inch full-color LCD instrument cluster create the perfect environment for when you’re maxing out this high-powered vehicle. On the outside, its aerodynamic design comes complete with a rear spoiler and the largest-ever hood vent on a Mustang. This intricate body rests on 20-inch flow-formed high-gloss black aluminum wheels, with the MagneRide® Damping System and Michelin® tires specifically developed for the GT500.

Open It Up
A Mustang convertible is a thrill ride all its own. In an EcoBoost or GT convertible that topdown excitement is just one touch away. They also each come with a high-powered engine, getting you in touch with the rush of the open road. And even with the top down, there’s still plenty of room in the trunk.

Give Them Something to Gawk At
Mustang is performance incarnate. With a powerful engine in every Mustang, every drive is up a notch. And that’s before you even get your hands on it. Add one of the multitude of performance packages to bring a personal touch to every fast start, tight turn or burnout.

Other standard features include a MagneRide® Damping System, massive brake rotors and an active valve performance exhaust that delivers the soundtrack you expect from a 5.2L V8.
Power in Your Clutch

2.3L EcoBoost. It’s a Mustang engine, so you know it packs a punch.
5.0L Ti-VCT V8. An engine that comes with a hit of adrenaline.

Exhilaration Is Automatic

Go From a Whisper to a Roar
No need for a sound system, because Mustang provides more than enough base. The class-exclusive active valve performance exhaust lets you control the volume. If you’re leaving for work early in the morning, set it for Quiet Start. Need an energy boost when you’re leaving work? Select the Sport setting. Other modes are Normal and Track.

Smoke ’Em if You Got ’Em
Launch control integrates the brakes, traction and powertrain control to help ensure quick starts, while real-time performance info is displayed on the in-dash LCD screen.

The Apex of Precision and Speed
A 2021 Mustang will pin you to your seat. Take it for a spin on a course with lots of white-knuckle curves and then, for good measure, subject it to some less-than-perfect road surfaces. That’s where you’ll discover how its independent suspension and selectable power-assisted steering deliver crisp, responsive performance while the available MagneRide® Damping System helps smooth out the rough spots.
A Gripping Performance
Available with the 2.3L High-Performance Package, the EcoBoost® Handling Package is for anyone who likes sharp turns and spirited driving. It comes complete with 19″ x 9.5″ aluminum wheels, Pirelli® Corsa4 tires, MagneRide® Damping System and a 3.55 TORSEN® limited-slip rear axle.
One with the Road
The standard base suspension on Mustang is primed for responsive handling. Independent components add to the feeling of control you get with a Mustang and create a steady ride quality.
MagneRide® Damping System
When road conditions change, the available MagneRide® Damping System responds – 1,000 times per second for each damper. The result is a smooth, balanced ride and the confidence to perform at your limits.
Personalize Your Drive
With available selectable drive modes, you control vehicle driving dynamics. Simply flick a toggle switch on the center stack, and handling and response are adjusted based on your selection. Choices are Normal, Slippery, Sport, Track or Drag Strip.
