Less than a week after the official debut of the new model, Cars.com has announced that the Mustang is winner of its 2014 Shopper’s Choice award.
The ten finalists for the award, which also included the Chevy Camaro, were selected based on car shopper actions taken on the site including searching car listings, filling out consumer reviews and contacting dealers.
The ultimate winner, however, was determined through fan voting on the Cars.com Facebook page, a platform where the Mustang shines when it comes to popularity with more than 5.5 million Facebook likes.
“The Ford Mustang remains a favorite among shoppers,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com’s Editor-in-Chief. “In its fiftieth year of production, the Mustang continues to be a sports car icon, and perhaps Ford’s most recognizable car ever. It is an American classic beloved by so many Americans, and the devotion to that car showed in the voting results.”
