In terms of price these two cars cost around $35,000. New Ford Mustang of the year 2013 is a little cheaper, for just $300, though we decided not to pay so much attention to that. Therefore we see that these two cars are not that cheap. Now let’s look at the engine, new BMW got the 3.0-Liter I6 engine with 24 valves that produces 230-horsepower. At the same time new Ford Mustang appears to be a lot more powerful, as its core is the 5.0-Liter V8 engine with 32 valves, that produces 420-horsepower @ 6500 level of torque. Both cars are equipped with the 6-speed automatic transmission systems. And of course new BMW is more fuel efficient.
