2021 Mustang Photos
Fret not faithful, this is still the 2021 Ford Mustang. It's not a crossover, it's not electric and it's not going away. Indeed, rumors of the Mustang's demise have been greatly exaggerated — just think of the excellent new Mach-E as the Mustang family expanding, just as the Porsche family did with the Cayenne and Macan SUVs. Much as we still have the 911, we still have the Mustang coupe and convertible.   OK, now that we've walked you off the ledge, we should at least mention that not every Mustang variant survived into the 2021 model year. The beloved Shelby GT350 and its sensational flat-plane-crank Voodoo V8 have been discontinued, while the tasteful, McQueen-inspired Bullitt has bitten the bullet. Tear. In their place, however, another historic Mustang name returns: the Mach 1. From a chassis perspective, it's the most sophisticated and capable Mustang short of the surviving GT500, while under the hood sees its predecessors live on in the form of the Bullitt's 5.0-liter V8 and the GT350's six-speed manual transmission (you can get a 10-speed automatic, too). We're not sure we like it better than the two cars it effectively replaces, but there's no denying its appeal.  Otherwise, the 2021 Mustang lineup continues to represent a smart middle ground among America's muscle cars. It's sharper than the Dodge Challenger and offers a more diverse lineup, while it makes for a better daily driver than the more hardcore Chevrolet Camaro. High-performance versions, including the Mach 1 and GT500, even make a strong case for themselves against high-priced coupes from Germany and Japan. So yes, the Mustang is still here and it's still excellent.  What’s new for 2021? Besides gaining the Mach 1 and losing the GT350 and Bullitt, there are other updates and additions for 2021. Every Mustang now comes with Ford's Co-Pilot360 suite of driver assistance systems as standard. This includes automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning and lane-keeping assist. Four new colors debut: Antimatter Blue, Grabber Yellow, Fighter Jet Gray and Carbonized Gray. Grabber Lime, Kona Blue, Magnetic and Dark Highland Green (the Bullitt) are gone. The GT500 also gains a Carbon Fiber Handling package.  What are the Mustang interior and in-car technology like? By and large, the Mustang’s interior is fine for a pony car, but like many cars that are designed to deliver fun on a budget, it’s not nearly as well-appointed as conventional sedans or crossovers at the equivalent price point. This interior was acceptable when this generation debuted for the 2015 model year, but it comes off a bit low-rent for 2021. There are two seat choices in the Mustang and neither are ideal. The standard seats offer a greater range of adjustability (although there's no power recline), but they're overstuffed and unsupportive. The available Recaro sport buckets, whether cloth or leather, are more supportive around corners and for the long haul, but they aren't power adjustable and lack a front seat bottom tilt adjustment.  Ford’s Sync infotainment system is perfectly usable, and it's hard …
