1999 Ford Mustang Review
More power, better brakes, sharper handling and a new look.
The Camaro and Firebird are slightly more powerful than the Mustang GT (by 45-70 horsepower). But the new Mustang GT is quieter, rides better, and offers better interior ergonomics and quality than the Camaro and Firebird. The Mustang GT is also less expensive than either of the GM pony cars by several thousand dollars. Those advantages make the Mustang GT the best all-around car in its class.
