2003 Ford Mustang - Price Quote

Visit Ford for more information on the Ford Mustang.

The Ford Mustang has been satisfying customers with a taste for adventure for years. Its name is synonymous with a distinct style and high performance. The 2003 Ford Mustang keeps pushing the line down this same exemplary path, leading the way as it has since 1964. Though it offers a number of different models and engine sizes, the 2003 Ford Mustang still has the same heart-pumping power that it always has.

Available Models
The 2003 Ford Mustang is available in Base, GT, Mach 1 or Cobra Performance packages. The Base comes with Standard, Deluxe or Premium trim levels while the GT comes with Deluxe or Premium. Two-door coupe and convertible configurations are available with every model except the Base Standard and new Mach 1, which are only offered as two-door coupes.

Interior Features
Interior refinement is standard with every Mustang model. For 2003, the Mustang has reduced wind noise due to expandable foam seals around the body, particularly at the outside door handles and belt molding on the doors. The Base model offers air conditioning, power steering, mirrors, and locks, AM/FM/CD player and a tachometer, plus others. The Deluxe models adds cruise control and power seats and power roof control, while the Premium offers leather upholstery and an in-dash 6-CD changer.

Customers looking to upgrade the interior of their Mustang are given a number of options that can be added as packages or individually. An Interior Upgrade Package includes stainless steel pedals, leather-wrapped shift knob, aluminum-finish door lock posts, shift boot ring and a 4-way head restraint system.

Exterior Features
Dark Shadow Gray and Azure are new paint colors for 2003. The 2003 Mustang Pony is a special-edition appearance package offered on the V-6 model that features 16-inch, polished-aluminum wheels, unique striping with "Mustang Stampede" graphics and a special rear bumper with blackened "Mustang" lettering.

If there's one thing the Mustang can handle, it's performance. Base models come with a 3.8-liter V6 with 190 horsepower at 5250 rpm and 220 lb-ft of torque at 2750 rpm. The GT comes has a 4.6-liter V8 that increases the power output to 260 horsepower and adds 302 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. Both engines come with 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic. Superior handling and ride control are achieved with each model through new suspension configurations and an advanced rear-wheel drive system.

The new Mach 1 model boasts a V8 with 300 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 300 lb-ft at 4250 rpm. At the top of the line is the Cobra, with 390 horsepower in its supercharged V8. Available with 6-speed manual transmission only, the power is right at your fingertips.

Safety and Security
The 2003 Mustang features improved head-impact safety features, including a new A-pillar, headliners, sun visors and a revised D-ring seat belt attachment. Also included in the safety package on all models are dual front airbags. Base Standard and Base Deluxe models have 4-wheel disc brakes, while from Base Premium models and up 4-wheel antilock brakes are standard.
