My name is Ray and I travel from car show to car show as a independent car blogger. Visiting the Ottawa Car Show last week, I met two of the top executives of Ford and had the pleasure of having a personal tour of the cars on display. Steve Ross ran through the specs of the entire line up of vehicles including all the latest with eco-boost and electric cars. My favorite of course was the 2013 Ford Mustang.
The new more muscular designed had me at hello. It is a 5.0 L V8 engine packs 420 horsepower under the hood. The Musang GT advanced six-speed manual and automatic transmission with short throw shifters tells me, “this car is fast.”
I have owned and leased Mustangs. As a Ford lover, I currently drive a 2010 Mustang GT Convertible but I definitely thought of trading it up for the 2013. It was a hard top, bright red with large rims. Under the hood was a work of art. I could picture myself behind the wheel, with the distinct rev of the engine underneath me.
The Mustang is one of the muscle cars that just keeps getting better. With low bank rates and factory incentives added, it is a car worth driving. If you are thinking of buying or leasing a Ford Mustang, the 2013 is a great choice. Ottawa Car Leasing never looked so good!
