While it comes no surprise to Ford Mustang fans worldwide, the fine folks over at Consumer Reports have concluded the 2011 Mustang is one to make the Top Picks list this year, under the Sporty car category. It’s come as a surprise to some in the news & media field, but c’mon, really? The 5.0 Mustang is back and it’s bad, folks! We’re guessing what seems to be shocking people in the circulars the most is the fact Consumer Reports typically awards such accolades to cars which overly excel practicality and value. What’s more, this is only the 2nd time an American-made automobile has won the Sporty car category. That’s quite amazing! Last time this happened, it was with the Ford Focus SVT back in 2004.
Head over to CNN Money to catch the rest of the story as well as the video on the Top Picks by Consumer Reports.
