Features abound on the model lineup for the 2008 Ford Mustang, as the car comes in four different trims as well as coupe and convertible models.
The many trims of the 2008 Ford Mustang bring several different standard features. ConsumerGuide writes that the Ford Mustang 2008 Base trim comes standard with "remote keyless entry, AM/FM/CD player, [and] digital-media player connection," while the Premium version gets an "upgraded sound system" and "in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer." Cars.com adds that on the Ford Mustang, 2008 brings the option to hook the CD/MP3 changer up to an optional "1000-watt Shaker 1000 stereo" on the GT. Automobile says that the Bullitt edition adds "unique gauges," and the Shelby GT500 variants offer a standard "interior lighting package" and "Cobra emblem," according to Motor Trend.
Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com liked the features list of the Mustang 2008, which is a blend of retro options and modern conveniences and luxuries. Kelley Blue Book finds that noteworthy optional features on the Ford Mustang 2008 include "leather seating, navigation, [and] sport bucket seats." Other cool touches include the multicolor interior lighting, a seemingly endless variety of color combinations, and a Shaker 1000 sound system, which ForbesAutos says features "MP3-playback capability."
The convertible version of the 2008 Ford Mustang sports a power folding soft top, which Kelley Blue Book says "folds nearly flush when retracted, giving the car a clean, powerful profile." While the top can be a bit tricky to operate, it is a welcome feature for those nice sunny days that seem tailor-made for cruising with the top down in a Mustang 2008.
The 2008 Ford Mustang brings a variety of trims and standard features to dealerships, and for audiophiles, the Shaker 1000 sound system is a must.
