Kelley Blue Book

Personalization is available via a number of option packages

Features abound on the model lineup for the 2009 Ford Mustang, as the car comes in four different trims as well as coupe and convertible models. For 2009, Ford has added more standard equipment to the popular "Premium" arrays offered on the Mustang V-6 and GT, including Sirius Satellite Radio, satin aluminum instrument panel trim, ambient lighting, and upgraded interior trim.

The many trims of the 2009 Ford Mustang bring several different standard features. Automobile says that the Bullitt edition adds "unique gauges," and the Shelby GT500 variants offer a standard "interior lighting package" and the "Cobra emblem," according to Motor Trend. ConsumerGuide reports that the Ford Mustang 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." adds that the Ford Mustang brings the option to hook up the CD/MP3 changer to an optional "1000-watt Shaker 1000 stereo" on the GT.

Reviews read by like the features list of the Mustang 2009, as they’re a thoughtfully mixed blend of retro options and modern conveniences and luxuries. Kelley Blue Book finds that noteworthy optional features on the Ford Mustang 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." There’s also a new, optional GT Security Package, which includes an active anti-theft system and wheel-locking kit. Brilliant Silver clear-coat metallic is yet another new exterior color for the pony car.

The convertible version of the 2009 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 tailor-made for cruising with the top down in a Mustang.


The 2009 Ford Mustang provides a veritable bounty of trim levels for pony car enthusiasts to choose from, as well as some good standard features. For audiophiles, the Shaker 1000 sound system is a must.

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.
