Here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, Florida, we’re proud to offer America’s and the world’s best-selling sports coupe – the Ford Mustang. Being known as the greatest sports coupe ever built means you have a lot to live up to. Thankfully, the 2017 Ford Mustang more than lives up to those expectations. In fact, it completely blows them away thanks to a powerful and efficient powertrain, smooth and precise handling and a comprehensive suite of advanced new safety, technology, comfort and convenience features.
But that doesn’t mean the 2017 Mustang doesn’t have various other models coming for its sports coupe crown. In fact, there are quite a few jockeying for position, including the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro.
