No matter how you slice it, the 2022 Mustang GT is not for the faint-of-heart, or for those seeking out the bare minimum. As flamboyant as it is powerful, the 2022 Mustang GT pulls no punches when laying rubber to the pavement, nor is it likely to play second fiddle to anything else on the block, in terms of aesthetic appeal.

The 2022 Mustang GT, in its base form, comes equipped with Ford’s 5.0L Ti-VCT V8, which produces a rated output of 450 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Still a little mild you say? No problem. Ford also offers the all-powerful 2022 GT500, capable of churning out 760 horsepower, and 625 lb-ft of torque, on behalf of the manufacturer’s now-infamous supercharged 5.2L “Predator” V8.

Additional mechanical highpoints of the 2022 Mustang GT include the addition of Ford’s GT Performance package. As part of this package, all GT-series Mustangs come outfitted with 6-piston Brembo front brake calipers, high-performance suspension components, and Torsen rear gears (3.73 manual/3.55 automatic).

Also of interest, is the wide array of premium amenities found within the Mustang’s cabin. Some of the most notable of these features include a full range of infotainment and connectivity capabilities, blind spot monitoring, and a rearview camera.

Externally, the 2022 Mustang GT looks stunning, if not downright aggressive. Included are integrated hood vents, sequential taillights, and a raised decklid spoiler. Additionally, consumers can opt for the addition of over-the-top racing stripes as well, for an additional fee.
