Ford Mustang
Starting Price: $23,600
This one squeaks under the $25,000 mark — which is great news for someone who wants to get into this iconic American sports car. Ford has been building Mustangs continuously for the last 50 years, and the 2015 version is all new. The V6 Mustang may be entry level, but it’s certainly no slouch. It boasts 300 horsepower with a 6-speed manual transmission, and looks awesome with its low, wide stance, HID headlights and signature sequential rear turn signals. While there are styling cues all around tying this Mustang to the original, there are plenty of high-tech features to remind you that the 2015 iteration is a thoroughly modern pony car. Goodies include pushbutton start, available SYNC with MyFord Touch, and Track Apps. Track Apps is standard on all Mustangs and includes launch control, g-force display and performance readouts with acceleration, braking and countdown starts.
