Ford Mustang Tops Gold Eagle List of Most Desired Dream Cars
Automotive product brand Gold Eagle recently conducted a survey of 2,000 folks to figure out what their dream car is. It shouldn’t come as all that much of a surprise that the winner was none other than the Ford Mustang, the dream car of Americans for more than 50 years. The Mustang beat out the Tesla Model S, Jeep Wrangler, and Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro for the top spot.
Gold Eagle’s breakdown of dream cars is quite impressive. It notes that among the respondents who identified the Mustang as their preferred vehicle of choice, 61% were women and 39% were men. Though the Mustang was the overall winner, it wasn’t the consensus of choice of millennials (who chose the Model S), Gen-Xers (who chose the Camaro), or baby boomers (who chose the Corvette).
The Mustang was the dream car of choice for the Southeast and Midwest regions. The Northeast, Southwest, and Pacific sided with the Model S, and the Mountain region chose the Range Rover. In the regions where the Mustang was the top choice, performance was not the top trait of a dream car—the Midwest qualified it as efficiency, while the Southeast qualified it as luxury.
As far as desired traits, the Mustang lines up quite a bit with what women want: female respondents considered convertible, sunroof, and speed as their top three traits compared to 4WD, size, and safety for men. On the whole, being convertible was the least desired of all dream car traits while size was the most valued.
The Mustang also took the No. 4 spot on Gold Eagle’s list of first cars. To see the full list of top dream cars and first cars, check out Gold Eagle’s blog.
