There have never been so many different Ford Mustang models for buyers to choose from. Ford's pony car stable includes 14 unique variants (depending on how you count them), ranging from pleasant pony car to extreme sports car. And with the introduction of the Mach-E lineup, the Mustang range is more diverse than ever before. And that’s before you get into all the aftermarket and tuner options from companies like Roush, Shelby, and RTR.

The Mustang family is bigger than ever, but in its current form, it won’t stick around for too much longer. A redesigned seventh-generation Mustang is just around the corner and while it won’t abandon the V8 engine that’s been the pony car’s calling card for almost 60 years, it will more closely merge the disparate powertrains found in the sixth-generation model. Before that redesign happens, scroll through and get an idea of just how the current Mustang stacks up.

2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost
2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Convertible

Mustang EcoBoost

  • Specs: 310 Horsepower / 350 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $28,865

The cheapest way to get into a new Mustang is by opting for the base EcoBoost model. Powered by a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, the entry-level model produces 310 hp and 350 pound-feet of torque, which means it can sprint to 60 miles per hour in a sprightly 4.9 seconds. The base Mustang EcoBoost fastback costs $28,865 (including the $1,350 destination charge), while the convertible costs $34,365.

2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium
2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium Convertible

Mustang EcoBoost Premium

  • Specs: 310 Horsepower / 350 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $33,890

Moving up from the base Mustang EcoBoost, the EcoBoost Premium model offers a bit more in the way of features. The Premium option adds leather seats, the latest Sync 3 infotainment system, a digital instrument cluster, heated side mirrors, and selectable drive modes. Power doesn't change – this model still uses the same turbocharged 2.3-liter engine, good for 310 hp – but the price increases to $31,685 for the coupe and $39,390 for the convertible.

2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost High Performance
2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost High Performance Pack Convertible

Mustang EcoBoost High Performance Pack

  • Specs: 330 Horsepower / 350 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $35,015

The most powerful four-cylinder Mustang is the EcoBoost High Performance pack. Though it has the same displacement as its base EcoBoost siblings, this model uses a retuned version of the Ford Focus RS engine, which produces a heartier 330 hp and 350 lb-ft. That means the Mustang can hit 60 miles per hour in just 4.5 seconds.

The High Performance package is a $6,150 option and is available on both EcoBoost trims and in coupe or convertible body styles. An EcoBoost Handling pack is a coupe-only option that requires the High Performance pack, but it’s a worthwhile addition at just $1,995. The hottest Mustang EcoBoost starts at $35,015 for a coupe and $40,515 for the convertible.

2022 Ford Mustang GT

Mustang GT

  • Specs: 450 Horsepower / 420 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $38,940

If it's affordable horsepower you're after, the Mustang GT is the one to get. The pony car packs a 5.0-liter V8 good for 450 hp (down 10 on the 2021 model) and 420 lb-ft and comes with the choice of either a slick six-speed manual transmission or a 10-speed automatic. Standard features include things like launch control, 18-inch wheels, and the latest Ford Sync infotainment system. The Mustang GT costs just $38,940 to start but is only available as a coupe.

2022 Ford Mustang GT Premium
2022 Ford Mustang GT Premium Convertible

Mustang GT Premium

  • Specs: 450 Horsepower / 420 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $43,960

The Mustang GT Premium follows the same template as the EcoBoost Premium, adding leather upholstery with heating and ventilation, a digital instrument cluster, selectable drive modes, and Sync 3 infotainment, but it adds a 5.0-liter engine. The Premium trim is also a prerequisite to snag a convertible body with the V8 engine, so take note, sun worshippers. Prices for the GT Premium start at $43,960 for the hardtop and $49,460 for the Convertible body.

2022 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack
2022 Ford Mustang GT Premium Performance Pack Convertible

Mustang GT Performance Pack

  • Specs: 450 Horsepower / 420 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $43,960

The standard Mustang GT offers plenty of grunt but the $6,700 GT Performance adds handling hardware to better match the straight-line speed. The pricey kit includes new 19-inch wheels, stickier tires, Brembo six-piston brakes, a new wing (although we recommend the classy look that comes from deleting the aero aid), a stiffer suspension, and more. The only thing that stays the same is the 5.0-liter V8, which still produces 450 hp and 420 lb-ft. You can get a base Mustang GT coupe with the Performance pack for $45,640 and a Mustang GT Premium convertible with the Performance pack for $56,160.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Mustang Mach 1

  • Specs: 470 Horsepower / 420 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $57,665

Ford dropped the Performance Pack Level 2 and Shelby GT350, but it split the difference with the revived Mach 1. It pairs a tweaked version of the Mustang's famous 5.0-liter, producing 470 horsepower and 420 lb-ft, with aerodynamic enhancements, stickier tires, larger brakes, and the GT350’s Tremec six-speed manual (or a modestly improved version of the GT’s 10-speed automatic). And if you need even more track-ready performance, the Mach 1 is available with a $4,500 Handling pack that dramatically improves downforce, further tweaks the suspension, and fits nifty wheels with sportier tires.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Premium

Mustang Mach 1 Premium

  • Specs: 470 Horsepower / 420 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $59,760

Know all that stuff Ford adds to the EcoBoost and GT Premium over their base configurations? It’s a similar deal here, even though the base Mach 1 comes better equipped than a base EcoBoost or GT. The Mach 1 Premium still adds heated/cooled seats and a memory function, but the real reason to upgrade are the improved aesthetic options. This trim is available with a $1,250 Appearance pack that adds orange accents and Fighter Jet Gray paint or a $1,550 Mach 1 Elite pack that introduces a 12-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system. Prices for the Mach 1 Premium, without those features or the available Handling pack, start at $59,760.

2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

Mustang Shelby GT500

  • Specs: 760 Horsepower / 625 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $80,815

The most powerful Mustang for 2022 remains the Shelby GT500. Packing a supercharged 5.2-liter V8, the pony car produces 760 hp and 625 lb-ft. This means a sprint to 60 miles per hour in a ridiculous 3.3 seconds. But the massive power is matched by a considerable muscle car price tag of $72,900. And if you want to go all out, you can option the Carbon Fiber Track pack for $18,500, which adds carbon fiber wheels, splitters, and more.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Select

Mustang Mach-E Select

  • Specs: 266 Horsepower / 428 Pound-Feet (Up To)
  • Price: $47,695

Yes, we’re counting the Mach-E. Even though it’s not technically a Mustang by traditional standards, the electric crossover shares its name and badge with the iconic sports car. Also, like the gas-powered Mustang, it’s been hugely popular. Ford literally can’t build the all-electric pony fast enough.

In its base Select form, the Mach-E pairs a 70-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack with either a single-motor rear-drive layout or an optional dual-motor all-wheel-drive setup to produce 266 hp and up to 428 lb-ft of torque (with all-wheel drive). Range is adequate, but hardly segment leading – 247 miles with rear-drive and 224 with all-wheel drive. Prices start at $47,695 for the base rear-drive Select.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route 1

Mach-E California Route 1

  • Specs: 346 Horsepower / 428 Pound-Feet (Up To)
  • Price: $53,875

The Mach-E California Route 1 adds the larger 91.0-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery as standard, but sticks with 18-inch wheels and pared back roster of equipment, making it the longest-legged trim in the lineup. The single-motor model covers 314 miles to a charge while the all-wheel-drive range is 312 miles. Not only will the California Route 1 go further than the Premium, but it will do so for a lower price, too, starting at $53,875 for the single-motor layout and $56,675 for the dual-motor model.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium

Mustang Mach-E Premium

  • Specs: 346 Horsepower / 428 Pound-Feet (Up To)
  • Price: $58,900

While every Mach-E comes with a handsome cabin and a 15.5-inch portrait-oriented display, the Premium is available with Ford’s BlueCruise active safet suite and an extended-range 91.0-kilowatt-hour battery that delivers up to 303 miles in rear-drive trim and 277 miles with all-wheel drive. With the bigger pack and twin electric motors, drivers have 346 hp and 428 lb-ft at their disposal, allowing 4.8-second sprints to 60 mph. Want max performance without stepping up to the GT? Pony up $58,900.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT

Mustang Mach-E GT

  • Specs: 480 Horsepower / 600 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $63,095

Ford’s first sporty EV, the Mach-E GT packs the extended-range battery and dual-motor all-wheel-drive as standard. The output grows to 480 hp and 600 lb-ft, while the range and zero-to-60 time drop to 270 miles and 3.8 seconds, respectively. That’s a fair trade, in our opinion. On top of the straight-line performance gains, the Mach-E GT packs a sportier suspension tune, higher-performance tires on larger wheels, and some unique exterior enhancements. Prices start at $63,095.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance

Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition

  • Specs: 480 Horsepower / 634 Pound-Feet
  • Price: $69,095

For now, the ultimate electric Mustang is the Mach-E GT Performance Edition, which ups the torque to 630 lb-ft and reduces the zero-to-60 time to just 3.5 seconds. You’ll lose 10 miles of range compared to the base GT, but considering the improved performance, magnetic dampers, larger front brakes, exclusive wheels, and sport seats that come with the Performance Edition, the $6,000 price hike is perfectly reasonable.
