2020 Ford Mustang GT: Ultimate Guide

2020 Ford Mustang GT

Still A Great Bang for Your Buck Bargain

Not many updates happened of the 2020 model year GT thanks largely to the big investment Ford made in improvements for the 2018 model year. 2018 say a host of improvements including new technology and design changes that gave owners ways to customize Ford Mustang to their preferences. 2018 saw better performance from more powerful engines and new MagneRide™ suspension technology improvements which all stuck for the 2020 model year GT.

2020 Ford Mustang GT: The V-8 Mustang builds on the EcoBoost trim and adds an engine oil cooler, larger brake rotors with four-piston fixed calipers, rev-matching on manual models, dual exhaust, LED foglamps, body-color decklid spoiler, 18-inch wheels, 6-way power driver/4-way power passenger seat, and rear parking sensors.

2020 Ford Mustang GT Premium: Additional equipment over the GT includes multicolor ambient lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated/cooled leather front seats, heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals, Homelink, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with a nine-speaker audio system and SiriusXM radio.
