Ford Performance at Brown Motors Petoskey

Attention Car Enthusiasts: dreamers and window shoppers welcome! Some day you will own that dream car! Brown Motors is fueled by a passion for performance. And we have plenty of performance to choose from! Of course the eye candy is always changing… right now you can gaze on a candy red Mustang Convertible Limited, a grabber blue Mustang Shelby Coupe, and you just missed the stinger yellow Challenger SRT8 Yellow Jacket.

Ford Mustang

The Mustang continues to be one of the best bang-for-your-buck performance buys. This year’s new V6 has brought renewed vigor to the entry-level Mustang while the 5.0-liter V8 GT has more power than even the old SVT Cobra model of a few years ago.

You have your pick of these muscular power plants:

  • The 3.7L 4V Ti-VCT V6 engine features 305 horsepower, 280 lb.-ft. of torque & 31 hwy mpg.
  • The 5.0L V8 pumps out a smoking 412 horsepower & 390 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • The race ready Hi-Po 302 Boss® 302 delivers 444 horsepower & 380 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • The supercar strength GT 500 with a supercharged & intercooled 5.4-liter 32-valve V8 engine delivers 550 horsepower & 510 lb.-ft. of torque.

All engines are mated to six-speed transmissions. There’s no such thing as compromise for these ponies.

Fact: The Ford Mustang has always been recognized as one of the original Muscle Cars. With the 2012 model it looks, feels and sounds the part like never before! “The current-generation Ford Mustang in particular is easily the best ever from the standpoints of performance, refinement, features and day-to-day livability,” says Edmunds in their review of the 2012 ‘stang. And you can have it your way! The Mustang can be customized with all the hood scoops, paint schemes and decal packages you want.

When the rumble of the Mustang calls you come see us at Brown Motors!

The Dodge Challenger was one of the main players of the 1960s and ’70s muscle car era. The 2012 Challenger brings muscle car performance and styling to everyday driving. Dodge delivers a powerful and efficient lineup of engines crafted from a legendary lineage and tuned to outperform.

Beast, beastlier, and beastliest:

  • 305-HP 3.6L Pentastar® V6 — A five-speed automatic that’s 45 pounds lighter than last year’s model, and just as powerful, delivering 268 pound-feet of torque.
  • 372 or 375 HP 5.7L HEMI® V8 — Even an engine that delivers 372 horsepower can be smart about fuel. With Fuel Saver Technology, the 5.7L HEMI® V8 automatically switches from 8 to 4 cylinders for greater fuel efficiency during crusing. The manual transmission delivers 375 horsepower.
  • 392-cubic inch 470-HP HEMI® V8 — This 392-cubic inch, throttle-hungry engine delivers all the classic raw power you’ll ever need. And its Fuel Saver Technology automatically switches from 8 to 4 cylinders for greater fuel efficiency.

Regardless of which drivetrain you choose, the Challenger stays true to its muscle-car roots with rear-wheel drive. If you’re looking for even more power, check out the high-performance Dodge Challenger SRT8. But the Challenger’s also a comfortable touring coupe with an independent suspension and some of the latest tech features.
