Used Ford Mustang Prices Make It A Better Buy Over New


For the most part, neither used nor new vehicles are a good deal at the moment, thanks to a variety of supply chain problems. But there are a few solid values present on the used vehicle market, like the Lincoln Navigator L, which recently landed on iSeeCars’ list of the top 15 new vehicles that are more expensive than their used counterparts. Now, the Ford Mustang – which is also among the top ten used vehicles with the smallest price increases – has landed on that same list.

The Ford Mustang ranked fifth on iSeeCars’ top 15 list of new vehicles that are more expensive than used, with a difference of 20.2 percent, or $10,160. That makes it a solid value in today’s market, where the average used vehicle costs just one percent less than new, or $464, on average. It’s also a sharp contrast to the top used vehicles selling for more than new, which range from around $2,500 over sticker to as much as $40,000.

“The Ford Mustang saw price increases across all trims in 2021 and the debut of the Mach 1 trim that replaced the less-expensive Bullitt trim,” said iSeeCars Executive Analyst Karl Brauer. “Appearance packages were also added to the 2022 model, which could lead to savings on lightly-used versions coupled with the fact that performance cars are in less demand due to high gas prices.”

Used Mustangs may also be easier to find than new ones these days following multiple production pauses at the Ford Flat Rock plant over the past few months. However, there are a few discounts currently available for Ford’s iconic pony car, so there are some deals to be found on new ones as well.
