What Are the Differences Between the Ford Mustang and Toyota 86?

Are you looking for your dream car at a dream price? Look no further than this 2018 Ford Mustang vs 2018 Toyota 86 comparison at Marshal Mize Ford to find affordable performance. With a price that starts at just $25,680, more power, improved fuel economy and a bold style, the Ford Mustang is a clear-cut favorite in this automotive debate. Entry-level Ford Mustang models employ 17-inch wheels, keyless entry with push-button start and a 4.2-inch Ford SYNC® display with Bluetooth.

Power and performance are trademarks of the 2018 Ford Mustang design that dominate the competition in this comparison. Mustang EcoBoost® variants feature a 310-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine that pairs with a six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission. When paired with the manual gearbox, the Mustang will make 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway – 32 mpg on the highway with the automatic transmission. Even standard Ford Mustang EcoBoost® editions employ a limited-slip rear differential, launch control and an electronic line-lock.

Upgrade performance when you opt for the Mustang GT. Armed with an iconic 460-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8 engine, the Mustang GT will make your automotive dreams come true. Available with a six-speed manual gearbox or a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic, the Ford Mustang GT promises heart-pounding thrills when you slide into the driver’s seat. When married to the automatic transmission, the 5.0-liter Mustang will achieve 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. A Performance Package will add 19-inch wheels, performance-tuned brakes and a MagneRide® suspension.

Toyota 86 models counter with a single powertrain under the hood. A 205-horsepower 2.0-liter boxer-type four-cylinder is fun to drive in the lightweight Toyota 86, but cannot generate the pure horsepower and torque that are highlights of the Ford Mustang arsenal. When paired with a standard short-throw six-speed manual transmission, the Toyota 86 will make a disappointing 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Fuel-economy gets a boost with a six-speed automatic transmission with Sport Mode that will earn 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
