The Smart Buy Average Market Price
The Smart Buy Average Market Price is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions either in your local area or nationally. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the vehicle you have selected and as you have configured it. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations than your specified vehicle configuration. The data underlying the Smart Buy Average Market Price calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Smart Buy Average Market Price is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
The Mustang is now over half a century old, yet remains one of the most widely recognized and desired nameplates in the automobile business. Today's Mustang still delivers the bold styling, rear-drive performance and affordability that have been Mustang hallmarks for decades. The Mustang is available either as a coupe or convertible in EcoBoost or GT trims. EcoBoost trims are equipped with a 310-hp 2.3-liter four-cylinder; GT features a 460-hp 5.0-liter V8 engine. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a six-speed automatic is optional. Standard safety features include electronic stability control, traction control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, side-impact airbags and sequential LED sequential tail lamps. All Mustangs come equipped with air-conditioning, alloy wheels, high-intensity discharge (HID) automatic headlights, limited slip differential and leather steering wheel with cruise and audio controls. Heated power leather seats, satellite radio, and a navigation system are just some of the available upgrade features. The Mustang drops the V6 engine and gains revised styling and a V8 horsepower increase for 2018.
We take our long-term 2018 Ford Mustang GT to the drag strip to see if the automatic, Performance Pack-equipped sports car's "Drag Mode" makes any difference in the way the car drives and how quick it is in the quarter mile.
