The current generation of Ford’s Mustang is arguably the best to ever roll out of a Ford factory. With a Mustang GT that makes 460 hp and a Mustang Shelby GT 500 that makes 760 hp, this pony has no shortage of power. That said, in base trim, Ford’s storied coupe is now powered exclusively by a turbocharged 2.3-liter I4. This turbo-four makes 310 horsepower at its worst, but that number rises to 330 hp when you check the box for the performance package. The performance package also includes suspension and style upgrades that turn this Mustang into a track-rat special. This Mustang is available with a 10-speed automatic or a six-speed manual.
On this episode of Quick Spin, Wesley Wren hops behind the wheel of the 2021 Ford Mustang Performance Pack 2.3-liter to put it to the test. Wren walks you around the car and shows off its upgrades and the features exclusive to this odd pony. Wren also takes you along for a live-recorded drive review and relays his experiences. Adding to the conversation, Wren talks with Patrick Carone. The two expand on these recorded segments, compare this high-performance four-cylinder Mustang to its more powerful GT counterpart, and discuss the competitive set. Closing the show, the pair talk about what makes this Mustang special.
