How Do the 2017 Ford Mustang Reviews Stack Up to the Competition?

2017 Ford Mustang

The 2017 Ford Mustang reviews are in, and we couldn’t be more excited. Not only did the pony car outperform the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro, but it also left the 2017 Dodge Challenger in the dust. Check out what the experts had to say before you finance the new Mustang at Terry’s Ford and get behind the wheel of a Mustang that has the critics talking.

Critics Prefer the Mustang to the 2017 Chevy Camaro

The Ford Mustang is a true performer, as at home on the open road as it is on your daily commute—unlike its fair-weather competition. In a recent test drive, the critics from Edmunds.com noted: “With just one test-drive, you’ll see that the Mustang is civilized and packed with modern tech, but it still holds on to all the trademark swagger and performance that has defined it for more than five decades.” The Camaro, on the other hand, was described as “a less useful car to drive every day.” Not great news if you can’t afford a whole fleet of cars to drive to work as the seasons change.

The Ford Mustang Trumps the 2017 Dodge Challenger

Recently, Car and Driver reviewed both vehicles, giving the 2017 Ford Mustang 4 out of 5 stars. Critics noted that “[t]he galloping pony nestled in the grille serves as a reminder that the Mustang is most at home on the open road.” They said “the rear-wheel-drive chassis is eager to attack corners while enabling a smooth ride when cruising.” Providing drivers with the ideal balance of performance and responsiveness make every drive something to look forward to in Ford’s classic pony. By contrast, the Dodge Challenger earned just 3.5 out of 5 stars because of its weight, which had experts commenting that “the overall ride is firm and busy over undulating surfaces.” They also noted that the car was “not all that muscular,” making it a questionable choice for those in search of powerful fun.

  • Edmunds – “Multiple appealing engine options include a turbocharged four-cylinder, a V6, and a roaring V8 while lots of interior upgrades give it a classy/high-tech vibe.”

The 2017 Ford Mustang Specs and Features

The heart of the 2017 Ford Mustang is one of its four powerful engines. The base V6 is a 3.7L engine that produces 300 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. The EcoBoost offers a more fuel-efficient option without sacrificing performance. The Mustang GT engine is a 5.0L V8 while the Shelby GT350 packs a 5.2L V8 with a flat plane crank for incredible power. 

The cabin of the 2017 Mustang is made for easy performance. The driver’s sport seat is set in a lower position than most cars, which gives you a maneuverability and weight balance mirroring a professional race-car. The shifter knob is perfectly positioned to perform quick shifts as you rev up. The tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel lets you maintain a controlled feel and better steering response. If you choose the Shelby GT350 you’ll get an upgraded interior featuring Recaro cloth seats with Miko suede sport inserts and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel for an ergonomic touch.

The Impressive 2017 Ford F-150 Earns Solid Reviews

The 2017 Ford F-150 was made to impress, and that’s exactly what it’s doing. Take a look at some of the reviews this new model is getting, and then head to Terry’s Ford to make one yours.

Car and Driver Loves the Performance

2017 Ford F-150 King Ranch

The 2017 Ford F-150 comes with a 3.5L EcoBoost® engine that delivers 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. What makes this model so impressive is the 10-speed automatic transmission that allows it to flow through the Peotone roads with ease. Car and Driver is excited about this new performance, stating:

“The legendary F-150—now with an aluminum bed and body—remains the hard-working pickup it’s always been. The base 3.5-liter V-6 makes 253 lb-ft; a 2.7-liter turbo V-6 (375 lb-ft) and 5.0-liter V-8 (387 lb-ft) are available, too, but the optional 3.5-liter turbo V-6 (420 lb-ft) is best for towing, boasting a maximum capacity of 12,200 pounds. All engines have a six-speed automatic. Regular cab, SuperCab and SuperCrew bodies as well as 5.5-, 6.5-, or 8-ft beds make the F-150 fit many needs.”

Motor Trend Enjoys the New Performance Features

The F-150 features a variety of new features to make it stand out on the Bradley roads. For instance, it offers a class-exclusive cab and box fabricated from high-strength military-grade aluminum alloys. In addition, it also boasts other upgraded features that Motor Trend noticed:

“The second-gen engine has the same displacement and bore centers, so it can be built on the same assembly line. Beyond that, every component is new, and the engine now has both direct- and port-injection (two injectors per cylinder), new turbochargers with a lighter turbine wheel, and standard auto start-stop technology that restarts the truck quickly and almost seamlessly when you hit the gas pedal.”

Edmunds is Excited for the Towing and Payload

When you choose the heavy-duty engine on the new F-150, you’ll also enjoy 12,200 pounds of towing capacity, which means you can handle any tough job that’s thrown your way. Edmunds is thrilled about it, stating:

“You won’t have any trouble finding a capable pickup that meets your needs in the diverse 2017 Ford F-150 lineup. The F-150 boasts impressive tow and payload ratings and some of the best fuel economy in the light-duty segment. To top it all off, the off-road-ready Raptor model is back and ready to fly over any terrain you put in front of it.”

Use Ford How-To Videos on Your Vehicle

Vehicles today are becoming more innovative and responsive, and we’re this close to having vehicles that only drive themselves. Until that day comes, though, we need to be sure we familiarize ourselves with the vehicles we have now. Ford goes out of their way to ensure that each vehicle is packed with plenty of safety and technology features that every Bradley driver would love, but when you provide this much innovation, you also need to teach drivers how to use it. Ford does a great job of this by providing plenty of how-to videos that teach Peotone drivers about all the features on their new model.

Technology

Every driver loves having technology that offers a suite of entertainment and information options right at their fingertips, but it’s possible that you don’t fully understand everything this has to offer. No matter what vehicle model you drive, there’s a video available that will teach you all about your vehicle’s technology, such as pairing your phone to the SYNC® technology to learning more about what this entertainment system has to offer. If you want to have a full grasp of this technology, be sure to check out the videos.

Maintenance

Having a vehicle requires regular maintenance, but some of us don’t have the time or money to let a professional handle it. In fact, some maintenance jobs are easy for you to do on your own, so why go through the hassle or letting someone else do it? For instance, if you want to learn more about changing the wiper blades or changing the oil on your vehicle, you can find out more by watching one of the available Ford how to videos. These will provide step by step instructions that walk you through exactly what you need to do to get the job done and get it done right.

Features

With all the innovation packed into today’s Ford vehicles, it’s possible that your vehicle is capable of doing something you weren’t aware of. Thankfully, you can spend some time watching the Ford how to videos to learn more about all the fun features and amenities your vehicle has. Not only will you learn more about them, but you will also learn how to use them correctly. For instance, maybe your vehicle comes with a trailer package. By watching a video, you can learn how to successfully hitch a trailer to your vehicle and be on your way.
