Everyone knows that there is more to the cost of a car then the initial price, and if you don’t buy the right one, you could find yourself blowing through more money than you expected. Thankfully, Kelley Blue Book (KBB.com) is here to help with the 5-Year Cost to Own Award. Three Ford models won the award this year, further proving they are the best way to go!
The 2013 Ford Mustang GT was the winner for the high performance category. This year’s model has a more aggressive appearance and an amped up horsepower of 420 hp. For the full size/crossover category, the 2013 Ford Explorer took the win. This is a great SUV for adventures with your family and friends, since it carries up to seven people and has an impressive 350 horsepower with the ecoboost engine. Winning the sports car category is the new, fun and efficient 2013 Ford Mustang. It will give you a powerful driving experience with 306 hp under the hood and a host of new styling upgrades.
This award recognizes that each of the winning models offers the lowest projected ownership cost. The costs that are included in this evaluation are KBB fair purchase price, projected depreciation, financing costs, insurance costs and state fees. An estimated cost of fuel and scheduled maintenance and repairs are also included.
