Ford fans probably enjoyed the December 23 episode of the Amazon show “the Grand Tour.” The shows British presenters took on an iconic American sports car. So what model Mustang was on the Grand Tour?
The sixth episode of the Grand Tour featured a segment where presenter Richard Hammond greeted the first 2017 Mustang to arrive in Britain. The particular model Mustang Hammond is driving is a 2017 Ford Mustang GT. The show does not specify whether this is the GT Premium trim or not, but based on the added features shown on the car, including the black-out wheels offered on the Black Accent package, this is likely.
2017 Ford Mustang GT Engine Performance
Much of the target of the Grand Tour’s praise was the Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V-8 engine. Included as standard equipment on the Mustang GT and GT premium, this engine produces 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. This engine delivers the best performance available on the Mustang, with the exception of the special, performance-oriented Shelby Mustang GT350 model.
Mustang GT Premium Added Features
In addition to the powerful engine, the 2017 Mustang GT Premium comes equipped with several excellent added comfort and technology systems. Upgrades include Recaro leather sport seats, adaptive cruise control, automatic wipers, SYNC 3 touchscreen infotainment system, HD radio, a 12-speaker Shaker audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control, a Tosen limited-slip differential and Brembo front brakes.
