The V-6 Mustang coupe is the lightest version at 3,401 pounds, and the weights keep climbing as you move up the price/equipment ladder. For example, the V-8-powered GT coupe tips the scales at 3,483 pounds, and the GT Premium convertible comes in at 3,601. The GT500 models are heavier still at 3,820 pounds for the coupe and 3,969 for the convertible.
These are all base curb weights that include all standard equipment for those specific models. A V-8 weighs more than a V-6, and a convertible weighs more than a coupe because of reinforcements to the body and chassis and the power-top hardware. In addition, higher-priced models have more standard features, adding to the weight.
