A muscle car stands out from traditional consumer-grade vehicles via more powerful engines and engineering choices that optimize performance, and the 2023 Ford Mustang is no exception. The team at Kearny Mesa Ford goes over the options that set this vehicle apart from the pack.

Trim Configurations

The 2023 Ford Mustang has three main trims: EcoBoost, GT, and Mach 1. Each offers a Premium version as well for six total options. You can choose from either a coupe (called a Fastback) or convertible body style. Both styles have two doors and can seat up to four passengers.

The EcoBoost and EcoBoost Premium trims derive their name from 2.3-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. From the GT trim onward, the lineup utilizes a 450-horsepower V8 engine, and the Mach 1 is the most powerful trim of all, with a 470-horsepower engine. You can pair any engine type with either a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission.

Packages and Options

You can further empower the EcoBoost and EcoBoost trims with a High Performance package, which adds components to increase its horsepower to 330. The Safe and Smart package, available in all trims except the Mach 1, adds Voice-Activated Navigation and Adaptive Cruise Control, which controls your following distance from the vehicle in front of you by dynamically adjusting your speed.

To prepare your vehicle for the racetrack, the GT trim can support the GT Performance Package, which alters components like the suspension and brake system to meet the demands of racing. The Mach 1, as the most race-ready trim, offers options which suit racers, like the Rear Seat Delete, reducing overall weight by cutting passenger capacity to two from four.
