Driving a 2018 Mustang with the Performance Pack 2 at MMC

Courtesy of NY Daily News: The Ford Mustang has come a long way since its 1964½ debut.

New Mustang Test Drive at MMC Delayed by a Tornado

Courtesy of arstechnica: In April, Ford dropped a bombshell on us, announcing that it’s going to cull almost its entire car lineup from the US market to concentrate on SUVs and crossovers. Not the Mustang, though. The Blue Oval’s sedans might not be selling well, but that’s not the case for its sports car, which has topped the sales charts for the coupe market for the third year in a row.
