Ford Mustang: Technical Data
Following a complete overhaul in 2005, the 2006 Ford Mustang added even more style to an already sporty car. There were two new color choices-tungsten grey clearcoat and vista blue metallic. The car came in five different trim levels- Standard, Deluxe, Premium, GT Deluxe and GT Premium. All were available in either a coupe or a convertible, but only the GT editions came with a higher-performance V8 powerplant. The GT Deluxe and Premium were shipped with 4.6 liter, 300 hp engines and a five speed manual gearbox. Both of the above models came with a 16-gallon fuel tank, and they achieved 17 mpg in the city and about 25 mpg on the highway. Automatic transmissions slightly dropped fuel mileage to 17 city/23 hwy.
Both the GT Premium and Deluxe came with power locks and windows, antitheft system, ABS, keyless entry and dual airbags, with an optional side curtain airbag. Both GT trim levels seated four and sported the same interior dimensions. Front-seat passengers got just over 38 inches of headroom, almost 43 inches of legroom, 55.4" of shoulder room and 53.6" in hip space. Passengers in the back seat had slightly less room to stretch, with 35" headroom, 31" leg room, 53.3" shoulder room, and 46.7" hip space.
Both GT models came with many features as standard equipment, such as cruise control, AC, tach, tilt steering, CD player, power seats and lumbar support. The Premium came with leather seats and a CD changer, both of which were optional on the GT Deluxe. Coupes got a folding rear seat, as well. Both two-door models measured 187.6" long, 74" wide and 54.5" tall, having a wheelbase of just over 107 inches. Exterior standard equipment included an air dam, rear spoiler, fog lights, alloy rims, power mirrors and windows, intermittent wipers and a window defogger.
The Deluxe coupe had an MSRP (sticker price) of $25,140, while the convertible cost $29,965. The Premium Coupe cost $26,320, and the convertible edition was the most expensive in the line at $31,145.
