It’s a car that gets you noticed, that’s for sure, whether you’re enjoying a Sunday drive on Shades Crest Road (those curves) or Sicard Hollow in Cahaba Heights (another fun one). The unmistakable Mustang has been an American classic since 1965, and drivers still love a sporty coupe that features a long hood and a short rear deck. It’s the perfect car to cruise in Birmingham.

Go see Matt today at Adamson Ford, located on 922 2nd Ave S, Birmingham, AL 35233.

“The Mustang has been one of the most iconic cars in car history. It’s been in production for over 50 years,” said Matt Harris, aka GT Matt, one of the sales experts at Adamson Ford. “If you’re looking to buy your first muscle car, the Mustang is the way to go.”

1. The Need For Speed

Here’s the deal. You can choose from two powerful engines: the 2.3L EcoBoost and 5.0L GT.

  • The new 2.3L EcoBoost engine boasts even more torque at 350 lb.-ft., while the 5.0L V8 delivers a maximum 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to a new dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection.
  • You can also opt for even more power for the Mustang Shelby GT 350 and get a shocking 526 horsepower and an impressive 429 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • They also have Roush performance products.

“The Roush has a highly-modified super charger added to it,” Harris said. “It has 710 horsepower.”

2. All The Power, All The Features

With all that power, you can also expect superb handling capabilities on the Mustang. With a combination of new shock absorbers, fine-turned suspensions and innovative technology the ride is sweet and smooth. There’s also:

  • A variety of driver-assist technologies including Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Keeping System
  • Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert
