As such, this is a car that conjures up memories for most Americans, whether they are car lovers or not.

New for 2014
In anticipation of the launch of the 50th-anniversary editions of the Ford Mustang, the 2014 Ford Mustang models sees only very minor changes:
- The model lineup is decrease for 2014 as the Boss 302 model is dropped
- New paint colors and package contents are available
The Ford Mustang remains iconic due to the fact that it changes very little from year to year. The 2013 models had an updated exterior design that gave sharper edges to the retro-styled car. As such, the exterior of the 2014 Ford Mustang remains unchanged from the 2013 models. The only difference is that new body paint colors are now available.
The 2014 Ford Mustang convertible is equipped with a power-operated cloth roof that has the additional bonus of providing more space in the rear seats of the car. The coupe models of the 2014 Ford Mustang can be fitted with a panoramic glass roof as an option to help let the outside in. New appearance packages include 18-inch or 19-inch black aluminum wheels, a black deck lid spoiler, black mirror skull caps, and quarter window louvers.
Interior & Cargo
As with the exterior, the interior of the 2014 Ford Mustang remains unchanged from the 2013 models. The plastic panels and flat surfaces are given a more premium feel through the use of soft-touch surfaces. Base seats are supportive and comfortable, and Recaro bucket front seats are available as an option. The seats in the rear are sculpted and comfortable in themselves, but most passengers will find head and legroom severely lacking, especially in the coupe models. The cargo area in the rear is large, even in the convertible. The rear seats of the coupe are 50/50 split folding, which allows for larger items to be carried easily within the car.
The base models of the 2014 Ford Mustang are equipped with power windows and locks, air conditioning, driver-selectable steering setting controls, keyless entry, and an audio system as standard. A 4.2-inch display screen, premium audio system, heated front seats, leather trim, and a voice-activated navigation system are all available as options. Some options are included on the higher trim lines, while others are grouped into packages.
Standard safety equipment for all models of the 2014 Ford Mustang includes antilock brakes, traction control, stability control, a tire pressure monitoring system, and front seat side airbags. Parking sensors are available as optional safety equipment.
There are four different trim levels that contain two different engines for the 2014 Ford Mustang models. The 2014 Ford Mustang V6 and V6 Premium are equipped with a 3.7-liter, V-6 engine that produces 305 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.

The 2014 Ford Mustang GT and GT Premium models are powered by a 5.0-liter, V-8 engine.
