How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

America's love affair with the Mustang continues 45 years after the original car made its debut in 1964. And the 2010 Ford Mustang is much improved, with a thorough overhaul that will help it take on the new Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro.

The 2010 Mustang has rear-wheel drive and is offered in two body styles: a 2+2 fastback coupe and a 2+2 soft-top convertible. The coupe may be had with a unique all-glass roof.

The 2010 Mustang has a thoroughly redesigned exterior and interior. At the back, the 2010 Mustang presents its tail lamps proudly on a chamfered surface. The new shape pays dividends in fuel economy and aerodynamic stability, while the details add to its attractiveness. In a slick bit of showmanship, leading into the tail, the rear fender features a distinct kick up that is much stronger and more powerful-looking than the outgoing model. Ford engineered the LED tail lamp to fire sequentially when indicating a turn. Up front, the grille and headlights of the 2010 Mustang are evolutionary, and the powerdome hood and sweeping fenders come together more artfully.

A 210-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 is the standard engine on the Mustang, but V-8 models now get a higher-output V-8 making 315 horsepower (same as the '08 Bullitt edition). Based on our previous experience, the V-6 should provide adequate but unremarkable performance, while the new V-8's throttle response is immediate and satisfying. Both engines can be had with five-speed manual or automatic transmission.
