In some ways, the 2020 Ford Mustang is just as you'd expect it to be. It has rear-wheel drive, an available 5.0-liter V8 under the hood, and all sorts of factory options to make it faster, louder, and more distinctive. What you might not expect about the Mustang is the way Ford has committed to the standard four-cylinder engine. Base Mustangs used to be underpowered and unloved, but not anymore.
The EcoBoost Mustang comes with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out a respectable 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. And for 2020 Ford has added a second four-cylinder engine available with the High-Performance pack. This engine bumps output to 332 hp and makes its 350 lb-ft of torque available across a wider rpm range. High performance is no longer exclusively for the V8 GT — rejoice, frugal Mustang enthusiasts!
Inside, the Mustang is much the same as it has been for the past few years. Highlights include a pleasing retro design fitted with the latest technology options such as Ford's Sync infotainment system and adaptive cruise control. The drawbacks are predictable. These include limited rear seat and trunk space and a stiff ride when you opt for the high-performance suspension. Overall, though, we thoroughly enjoy the 2020 Ford Mustang. It's modern, fast, easy to drive, and available with just enough options to make it your own.
