Surprise (or maybe not), Ford Mustang fans, the 2011 Mustang GT has just received the KBB.com best resale value award. It looks like the amalgam of Ford’s innovation, engineering, marketing, and quality has paid off and is continuing to strengthen many of Ford’s brands aside from the Mustang; the Taurus and Super Duty pickup truck also took honors from KBB. The award itself basically recognizes how well the vehicle holds up in value compared to its original list price after five years of ownership. The Mustang took the cheese for the high-performance car category and if 2012 goes anything like this year’s model, we’re comfortable with saying the feat could repeat next time.
With classic muscle styling, a 412hp 5.0 liter power plant, and a sticker price hovering around $30K, the Mustang GT has a lot to offer potential buyers enthusiasts. Check out the full story, straight from Ford, after the jump.
