Few Mustangs have had the impact of the 2011 Mustang GT. The long-awaited return of the 5.0-liter engine has given enthusiasts a reason to be excited, and with 412 hp, Mustang owners are finally equipped to demolish anything brand-X has to offer, all for around $30,000. The GT ushers in amazing electronic and powertrain technology, which increases power and efficiency. Driver feel and braking capabilities are also enhanced, especially with the Brembo option. And let's not forget world-class navigation and communications systems. At the heart of it all is the Ti-VCT Four-Valve, 5.0-liter powerplant, with independent variable camshaft timing, a free-flowing intake, tubular headers, and a great sound. It also features EPAS electric power steering, plus six-speed transmissions (auto and manual). The end result is a powerful Pony car that is fun to drive, offers tons of sporty feel, and gives you great efficiency. It can hang on the strip, road course, and open road with cars that cost double the price, which puts it atop our list. Ford really knocked it out of the park with the 2011 Mustang GT!
