When it comes to the auto industry, few names are as iconic as Ford Motors. Not only is Henry Ford’s legendary Model T practically synonymous with the birth of the industry, the Ford Motor Company has also created some of the most iconic North American vehicles. Who can imagine the pickup without first thinking of the F-150, which has been the go-to truck for generations of Canadians? Who can imagine the history of auto design without the famous 1965 Ford Mustang, which single-handedly created a new class of automobiles, the “pony car”?
Fortunately for Ford fans, the glory isn’t all in the past. While Ford started the new millennium by innovating its wildly popular SUVs and crossovers, like the Ford Explorer and the Ford Edge, it also continued to release new versions of the ever-popular Mustang, culminating in the unveiling of the sixth generation Ford Mustang in 2013, which became widely available in 2015 and went on to receive a 5-star crash protection rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
As a car blog for Ford aficionados points out, though winter may not seem like the ideal time to buy a muscle car January is actually one of the best times of the year to look for a deal on used cars. With the new year beginning, last year’s stock, like the sleek and powerful 2017 Mustang coups and convertibles, is more affordable than ever, and the salespeople at many dealerships will be eager to make space for the 2018 models.
The 2017 Mustang is a particularly attractive choice for several reasons.MotorTrend.com, which gave the 2017 Mustang 4 stars, praised its exception performance, noting that its excellent handling didn’t come at the cost of comfort. It come in four different models, with engines ranging from V-6 to V-8 as well as Ecoboost alternatives for state-of-the-art fuel economy, and you can sync your phone to Ford’s Sync 3 multimedia interface and get the most out of your music with the 12-speaker Shaker premium audio system.
But while the 2017 Mustang is undeniably a beautiful and powerful car, these features are twinned with an adaptive cruise control, rear view camera, and forward collision warning system that ensures driving a Ford Mustang is as safe as it is fun.
There’s been a lot of excitement in recent months about the new 2018 Mustang (and for good reason), but if you’re not in a position to buy the absolutely newest model, that doesn’t mean you can’t feel the power and luxury of one of the best vehicles ever to roll off the Ford factory floor. Why notstart your January off by swinging by your local Ford dealership to check out what kind of deals are available?You might be surprised to see how easy it is to get behind the wheel of one of the most iconic cars ever made.
Who knows: you might find yourself driving home in a new Ford, or a certified pre-owned Ford, whose mighty horsepower and sleek design will get you dreaming of the summer sun and the open road.
