2008 Ford Mustang

Still one of the most popular cars in Ford's stable, the Mustang gallops into the 2008 model year with its retro-muscular good looks unchanged. Inside, the 2008 Mustang comes with a number of upgrade and customization options that give drivers the ability to add a level of uniqueness to their vehicles.

With a new optional ambient interior lighting package, for instance, drivers can choose from seven colors to illuminate the Mustang's front and rear footwells. The optional MyColor feature enables drivers to adjust the color of the instrument panel.

Ford also offers nearly a dozen upgrade packages for the 2008 Mustang, including Comfort, Appearance, Sport, and Color Accent packages. Drivers can even choose a Warrior in Pink package, which includes a pink pony fender badge and charcoal leather seats with pink stitching, all to benefit a cancer-related charity.

Beyond that, drivers can choose from two trim levels (Deluxe and Premium) with either a 210-horsepower V6 or 300-horsepower V8 engine (badged as the GT), as well as coupe and convertible models.

No matter which trim level, engine, options, or packages drivers choose, however, they'll all get a sports car that's instantly recognizable, thanks to its wide, low stance, distinctive grille with the rearing pony planted firmly in the center, C-shaped side indentations, and large tires in flared wheel wells. Its a look that's both nostalgic and modern, and one that never fails to turn heads on the road.

Ford adds a number of other features for 2008, including new side impact airbags across the line and HID headlamps. They join such standard features as power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, power side mirrors, four-wheel power disc brakes, illuminated entry, and an audio system with an MP3 input jack.
