What's wrong with the Mustang?


2014 ford mustang v6 convertible

An all new Mustang is due out tomorrow and from what has leaked out already it’s a dramatic change. That, no doubt, will enrage pony car loyalists and anyone over the age of 50, but it’s necessary.

Some recent market survey data revealed that while the Mustang is the No. 1 considered car by Baby Boomers looking for a rear drive sports car, it’s last among Gen Y. Ford absolutely must modernize the Mustang because fans of the current car won’t be around for much longer, or at least not in the market for a sports car, and without new buyers Ford might as well send its pony to the glue factory.

Recently we spent a week driving a 2014 Mustang with a V6 engine and a six-speed manual transmission. Equipped with the Mustang Club of America package and some eye catching paint we can credit it as our muse for this piece, highlighting five things Ford absolutely must change about its performance icon.

Spurning the basics like black, white and beige, even mass-market companies are offering buyers ever more assaulting hues. These days you don’t have to pony up the cash for a Lamborghini to drive something bright. Here are the Top 10 Craziest Paint Colors Available Today.
