For serious car enthusiasts, the Ford Mustang needs no introduction. Few vehicles epitomize American automotive manufacturing like the original muscle car.
The geniuses behind the Mustang have never been content to rest on their laurels, though, and this year is no different. The 2017 Ford Mustang is among the year’s most highly anticipated muscle cars. It’s not hard to see why. And if you remain on the fence about this car for some unknown reason, these six exciting features are certain to knock you off.
- 2.3L EcoBoost Engine Option
Looking for an eco-friendly engine option without compromising pep or performance? The 2.3L EcoBoost is definitely for you. It’s a great counterpoint to the throaty 5.0L V8 and the fiery 3.7L V6. And, no matter where gas prices go in the future, you can rest easy in the warm embrace of low ownership costs.
- Electric Line-Lock
Quality Ford Mustang replacement parts keep your ride at the top of its game longer than you ever thought possible. Electric line-lock technology, meanwhile, keeps your ride from getting left in the dust on the track — whether you’re hitting the bricks for the first time ever or taking your broken-in baby back for the umpteenth spin. When engaged, your front brakes stay locked as your rear brakes release, allowing your rear tires to spin and warm before the light goes green. Perfect for getting a jump on the competition.
- Arresting Lighting
The 2017 Mustang really knows how to light up a room — or a dark country road. Thanks to high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps with LED components and accent lighting, your Mustang always makes its presence felt. And, in case you were wondering: those unmistakable sequential turn signals are alive and kicking in 2017.
- Heated and Cooled Seats
Some days are better than others. The 2017 Mustang’s heated and cooled seats ensure you never have to check the forecast before hitting the road. Whether it’s 10 degrees or 100, you’ll ride in comfort.
- MagneRide Damping System
It sounds fancy, and maybe it is. The MagneRide Damping system, a standard component in the GT350 variant, is a cutting-edge piece of technology that makes for a smoother, more seamless ride with no driver input. Here’s how Ford explains it: “When motion sensors detect a bump, pothole or obstacle, magnetic energy is automatically adjusted to provide optimal damping for both comfort and control. It all happens faster than the blink of an eye.”
Pretty cool, no?
- Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)
We’ve all been there: driving along, minding our own business, when a routine lane change turns into a near-death experience. Even drivers who check their blind spots are prone to mistakes on crowded or fast highways with little margin for error. The 2017 Mustang’s Blind Spot Information System, or BLIS, reduces the risk of blind spot crashes by providing instantaneous warnings and cross-traffic alerts to keep everyone in their lane. (Literally.)
