Ford Mustang V6

Starting MSRP: $22,145

Since its inception in 1964, the Ford Mustang has been all about offering fast cars at a budget price. Unfortunately, its base models didn't always meet that standard. But with the introduction of a 3.7-liter, direct-injection V-6, the Ford is bringing serious kick to this cheap and speedy Mustang.

The standard engine now produces a lofty 304 horsepower and 280 foot-pounds of torque, perfect for burning up rear tires or just passing on the freeway. In fact, thanks to the V-6 model's low weight and powerful motor, it reaches 60 miles per hour in the mid-five second range and tops out at 113 miles per hour.

Direct injection also helps the V-6 Mustang get excellent fuel economy for a pony car: 19 city/29 highway mpg.
