The 2017 Mustang is available as a fastback or as convertible, with one of four engines. Now, I know that there is a learning curve to driving this auto on some twisties. It represents one of the best value propositions for buyers who just want the fastest car for their money. The chassis tub was stripped to bare metal and any corroded components were repaired or replaced, as necessary. One thing I want to stress with this car is the sheer speed that's possible with the new 10-Speed 10R80 Automatic Transmission and the Gen 3 Coyote Engine. Additionally, the MagneRide really loosens up in this mode allowing the car to cruise with comfort - seriously, it rides like a Cadillac.
There's also a Sport mode in addition to the Sport Plus mode, but you don't select that with the toggle; instead, you choose it with the automatic transmission by pulling the shifter into S instead of D. A Pony Package is offered on this trim. Being a manual transmission purist, there was definitely a learning curve here. There are four different settings for the exhaust, ranging from Silent to Track, which are accurate descriptions. In defense of the higher price, however, you get a pony car that's more sophisticated, more capable, better built and better looking than ever before. They're selected by a toggle low and to the right on the dash, but the toggle goes only one way, so you have to cycle through them all to get where you want.

And with the proper shift points and transmission tuning, these cars are blowing stick cars out of the water! The top of the line engine is a 5. Ford has reported that this 10-speed auto will not lose any torque when shifting gears. Like a Mustang Despite the fact that the Mustang got a mild makeover, you'd be forgiven for not really noticing. While it feels decidedly heavier, the newfound power and torque from the upgraded engine transforms the Mustang. All engines can be mated to either a 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission.
There is a lot of hype around this automatic transmission for the sheer fact that it shifts quicker than any transmission in the Mustang to date.

Credit goes in part to that 10-speed automatic again: Pop the car into Sport or Sport Plus mode, and the transmission shifts to an aggressive sport configuration that holds lower gears, downshifts quickly and responds almost too urgently for street use.
