2021 Ford Mustang GT Coupe: GT Stands For Great Time

2021 Ford Mustang GT Coupe Review

The 2021 Ford Mustang GT Coupe - now in its sixth generation - forms part of a long and proud lineage of pony cars that stretches back over half a century. The Mustang GT Coupe sits in the middle of the pack and delivers impressive performance and equally impressive value for money. Under the hood sits a proudly American 5.0-liter V8 gas engine producing 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a ten-speed auto, but traditionalists can still opt for a six-speed manual. For 2021, Ford has made its CoPilot360 safety suit standard, and the rest of the tech is impressive, too. With an entry-level price of $36,285, the 2021 Ford Mustang GT is a genuinely affordable 2-door sports car and goes up against competitors like the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger.

2021 Ford Mustang GT Coupe Changes: 🚙What’s the difference vs 2020 Mustang GT Coupe?

Elsewhere in the US lineup, there have been wholesale changes, with some models discontinued and the new Mach 1 introduced, but the sweet-spot Mustang GT Coupe has remained virtually unchanged. For 2021, however, the Ford CoPilot360 safety suite is now standard equipment, incorporating BLIS (blind-spot information system), a cross-traffic alert function, automatic headlights, lane keep assist, pre-collision alert (with pedestrian detection), automatic emergency braking, and a backup camera. There are other detail-spec changes, too; for example, whereas previously, one had to opt into the GT Performance Package Level 2 to get the MagneRide adaptive damping, this feature is now listed as an individual extra.

Pros and Cons

  • Excellent Coyote V8 power
  • It's a practical daily driver
  • Sharp handling
  • User-friendly tech features
  • Solid cargo capacity
  • Newly standard safety features
  • No rear-seat legroom
  • Lacks European refinement
  • Taller folks will struggle to get in and out of the cabin

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2021 Ford Mustang GT Coupe a good car?

It is very difficult to hate on the 2021 Ford Mustang GT, even if you're a diehard Dodge or Chevy fan. It provides so much performance at such a fantastic price that even if the rest of the car were bad, we'd still want to own one. Thankfully that's not the case. It's an excellent daily partner (if you don't mind the fuel costs) and the NHTSA review of the 2021 Ford Mustang Gt returned superb results. Not surprising, considering that Ford's CoPilot360 safety suite is standard this year. The entire vehicle line is also known for its high reliability expectations. The GT Coupe exudes driving pleasure and comfort simultaneously: Ford's infotainment system is easy to use, as are the rest of the Mustang GT's controls and switches. There's impressive cargo space in the back and an exhaust growl that will wake up the neighbors. What more do you want?
