Rent a Ford Mustang in America

Rent a Ford Mustang in Western America

Crossing America in a Ford Mustang Convertible. Hundreds of miles of Route 66 ahead of you, the top down, and a powerful V6 engine with over 300 horsepower under the hood. Who wouldn’t dream of it!

The Ford Mustang is one of the most popular convertibles to rent in the USA. The cost of renting a Ford Mustang ranges from 400 to 600 dollars for a week. The cost also greatly depends on the period (peak season or not), the location, and additional options such as insurance.

There are many car rental companies where you can rent a Ford Mustang convertible, including Hertz, Sixt, Avis, Enterprise, Alamo and National. You can compare all providers on We’ve noticed that prices vary greatly, both among different providers and the number of days. So, be sure to compare for a good deal. TIP: Search for cars in the ‘Premium’ segment to find the Ford Mustang easily.

Besides the rental period, the final price also depends on the location where you return the car. It is often more cost-effective to return the car at the same place you picked it up.

Additionally, extra options significantly affect the price, such as insurance, the fuel option (you don’t have to return the car with a full tank), and an additional driver. These kinds of extra options can considerably increase the rental price, and it’s important to consider whether they are all truly necessary.

Ford Mustang luggage space

Does the Ford Mustang offer enough luggage space for a road trip through America? The answer is simply YES.

The trunk of the Ford Mustang is deep and wide. We brought a suitcase of 121 liters (H 79 x W 40 x D 33 cm) and one of 78 liters (H 67 x W 35.5 x D 30 cm).

Besides these two suitcases, we also had a backpack and some loose items with us. With a bit of fitting and measuring, it all fits well. Additionally, you can also store some items on the back seat when traveling with 2 people.

Where can I rent a Ford Mustang?

You can rent a Ford Mustang at all major car rental companies in America. Keep in mind that you’re renting a car from the ‘Convertible’ class, not specifically a brand and model. When you select a Ford Mustang during the booking of your rental car, you’ll always see ‘Ford Mustang or similar’.

Requesting a Ford Mustang

Upon arriving at the rental location (often at the airport), you can choose a car in the vast parking garage full of rental cars. With luck, the garage will be full, and you can calmly pick out the Ford Mustang of your choice. If you’re unlucky, there might only be one convertible from another brand left.

TIP: Always ask at the counter for a Ford Mustang as well. Not always is one readily available in the parking garage. For us, one had to be cleaned first. Had we not specifically asked for it, we wouldn’t have been able to drive a Ford Mustang.

Frequently Asked Questions about Renting a Ford Mustang

What is the fuel consumption of the Ford Mustang?

A Ford Mustang V6 consumes about 1 in 10, meaning 1 liter of fuel for every 10 kilometers driven. With a simple Midsize Sedan, you can easily drive 19 kilometers on 1 liter of fuel, almost double. Fuel prices in America are significantly lower than in the Netherlands. As of writing (June 2024), you pay about 1.27 USD per liter of gasoline in the state of California.

What does it cost to rent a Ford Mustang?

The price for renting a Ford Mustang depends greatly on the travel period, duration of the trip, and the destination within America. We rented the Ford Mustang for 8 days (including the day of pickup and return) and paid 570 dollars for it. That comes down to about 71.25 dollars per day. It’s worth noting that we traveled in the low season.

Can you travel with 4 people in a Ford Mustang?

The Ford Mustang has 4 seats. The rear seats are very cramped, and therefore, I strongly advise against renting the Ford Mustang if you are traveling with 4 people. This also applies if you’re traveling with children. The rear seats catch a lot of wind when the top is down. Also, you might have insufficient luggage space for 4 people.
