How Much Does a 2021 Ford Mustang Cost?

The 2021 Ford Mustang comes in EcoBoost, EcoBoost Premium, GT, GT Premium, Mach 1, and Shelby GT500 versions. The EcoBoost and GT versions offer the choice of a Fastback (coupe) or convertible body style. The Mach 1 and GT500 come solely as coupes. Vehicle pricing below includes the $1,195 destination charge. The 2.3 EcoBoost Fastback ($28,350) and 2.3 EcoBoost convertible ($34,850) have 17-in alloy wheels, limited-slip differential, keyless entry/ignition, LED headlights, LED sequential taillights, dual exhaust system, height-adjustable driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, cloth upholstery, self-dimming rearview mirror, Track Apps (recording performance data during track driving), electronically lockable front brakes (Ford says they’re to help warm the rear tires, but some people will use this feature for burnouts), programmable MyKey system (with controls for geofencing, speed limit, stability control, audio volume, radio content, seat belt reminders, and low fuel warnings), Ford Co-Pilot360 driver aids, Sync infotainment system, 4.2-in infotainment screen, Bluetooth phone/audio connectivity, voice controls, wi-fi, two USB ports, auxiliary audio input, and a 6-speaker audio system. The EcoBoost Premium Fastback ($33,370) and  EcoBoost Premium convertible ($38,870) have 18-in alloy wheels, power-adjustable front seats (6-way for the driver, 4-way for the passenger), simulated leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, an upgraded Sync 3 infotainment system with an 8-in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, satellite radio, and a 9-speaker audio system. These EcoBoost models can be ordered with a High Performance package that also brings a front strut tower brace, Pirelli performance tires, stronger brakes, sport-tuned suspension, larger radiator, bigger brakes, shorter gearing, performance rear axle, stability control with higher thresholds, auxiliary gauges (including a boost gauge for the turbo) and aluminum interior accents. The GT’s Handling package includes uprated brakes, a Torsen (torque-sensing) limited-slip differential, and Ford’s MagneRide adaptive suspension. The GT Fastback ($37,315) echoes the regular EcoBoost’s features but with the V8 engine and bigger brakes. The GT Premium Fastback ($41,315) and GT Premium convertible ($46,815) add the EcoBoost Premium’s equipment inventory. The new Mach 1 Fastback ($52,915) is a track-focused machine, compensating somewhat for the demise of the Shelby GT350 models. It has its own aerodynamic setup, extra cooling for the engine/transmission/differential, Torsen 3.73 limited-slip differential, sport-tuned MagneRide adaptive suspension, front strut tower brace, Brembo brakes, a 3.73 rear axle, Tremec 6-speed manual transmission with rev-matching, 19-in alloy wheels, summer tires, active exhaust system, and a cue ball shift knob with the manual transmission only. The Mach 1 also offers satin black stripes accented with red, white or orange, plus leather-covered Recaro sport seats. The Shelby GT500 Fastback ($70,300) has the supercharged 5.2-liter V8 and a 7-speed dual-clutch automated transmission, plus launch control, selectable drive modes, 20-in aluminum wheels, magnesium front strut tower brace, leather seating surfaces, 12-in LCD digital instrument cluster, rear spoiler and a dual exhaust with quad tips. Other options include 20-in alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, navigation, enhanced anti-theft system, dual-zone automatic climate control, ambient cabin lighting, leather upholstery, heated/ventilated front seats, carbon-fiber interior trim, satellite radio, a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, and all-important racing stripes. Trunk space in the coupe is 13.5 cu ft. The convertible’s trunk accommodates 11.4 cu ft.

2021 Ford Mustang vs the competition

2021 BMW 2 Series — The Mustang is the most sophisticated it has ever been, so that brings the 2 Series into play. No burbling V8 here, but razor-sharp handling, equal or better interior quality, and superior maneuverability make up for it. 2021 Chevrolet Camaro — Superb. Absolutely worth considering if shopping for a Mustang. Get one before Chevy decides to ditch it. 2021 Dodge Challenger — The Challenger is much improved, especially its handling, but it’s still the largest and most cumbersome of the traditional muscle car trio. However, it does have a proper rear seat, and that 6.4-liter V8 is a beauty. Used BMW M3 — Another iconic car with a perfect mix of high speed and fine handling. Put it this way: if Steve McQueen had driven an M3, that famous movie car chase would have been a lot shorter.
