6. Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack 2
The current 5.0 GT Mustang is one of the best Mustangs in history. However, Ford waited until 2018 to unveil the new GT Performance Pack 2 properly. It is regarded as one of the greatest modern Mustangs, a true performance model for muscle car fans. So what exactly is the Mustang GT Performance Pack 2? First, it’s a GT, which means it has a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with 460 HP and 420 lb-ft of torque. Ford mated it with a six-speed manual transmission in the best tradition of classic muscle cars.
With 0 to 60 mph times in the low four-second range (4.3 seconds), the Performance Pack 2 is fast. But those numbers are just half of the story. The essence of the Performance Pack is in handling and braking. For $6,500 above the price of a regular GT, you will get both chassis and aerodynamic improvements, stiffer springs, and beefier anti-roll bars. You’ll also get performance tires, bigger brakes, and racing seats. Some think Ford should’ve named this the Performance Pack 2 Boss 302 since it captures the same idea for the same type of customers. If you can’t afford the Shelby GT350, the Performance Pack 2 is the perfect alternative as it offers almost the same level of performance and handling for a significantly lower price.
