Benefits of Driving a 2012 Ford Mustang Coupe

Ford's pony car got an all-new, much more powerful engine lineup last year, which complemented the host of improvements, ranging from interior to chassis and refinement that the Mustang had received in the two model years prior.

What's new for 2012?

Last year the Mustang received an all-new engine lineup. For 2012, a new track-oriented Boss 302 model--inspired by the 1970 racing legend--joins the 2012 Mustang lineup, offering a higher-output version of the new V8. The serious racing-oriented model includes adjustable front struts and rear shocks, a quad exhaust and a number of additional upgrades and appearance enhancements.

Model Strengths

  • Strong acceleration
  • excellent convertible
  • good fuel economy in the V6
  • iconic shape and style
  • track-ready Boss 302

Model Review

The main Mustang lineup remains offered in Base, Premium, GT, GT Premium and Shelby GT500 versions, with Coupe and Convertible versions of each trim.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
