How much does Mustang insurance cost?
Ranked third out of 26 vehicles in the 2023 sports car class, Ford Mustang insurance costs on average $1,964 per year for full coverage, or $164 per month. With the average sports car costing $2,476 a year to insure, the Ford Mustang is $512 cheaper on average.
When compared to all models, not just sports cars, average car insurance rates for the 2023 Mustang cost $16 more to insure than the national average rate for 2023 model year vehicles of $1,948 per year.
Older Mustang models generally cost less than a new one to insure, which we cover in detail later, and the trim level of your Mustang makes a big difference in the price of insurance.
For the 2023 model, the cheapest model to insure is the Mustang Ecoboost Fastback trim level at $1,746 per year, while the Shelby GT500 trim level is the most expensive Mustang to insure at an average cost of $2,280 per year.
That’s a difference of $534 per year just based on the trim level of Mustang you’re insuring, which is a significant amount.
Two additional factors that can make a big difference in the cost of car insurance are the age of the driver rated on the Mustang and the deductibles you choose for comprehensive and collision coverage.
The chart below shows how Ford Mustang insurance rates vary based on driver age and the policy deductibles. Rates range from the lowest price of $1,488 per year for a 60-year-old driver with higher $1,000 deductibles to a much higher rate of $4,490 per year for a 20-year-old driver with $250 deductibles.
|Driver Age||Deductible||Annual Cost||Monthly Cost|
The two key points illustrated in this chart are that car insurance is more expensive for younger drivers and that the higher deductible you choose the lower your premiums will be.
The cost difference between low and high-deductible policies for an average 40-year-old driver will be around $612 per year, but it’s much more for the 20-year-old driver at $1,190 per year.
What is the cheapest Mustang insurance?
With 2023 Ford Mustang insurance rates ranging from $1,746 to $2,280 per year for the average driver, the cheapest Mustang insurance is on the Ecoboost Fastback. The second cheapest Mustang model to insure is the Ecoboost Premium Fastback at $1,798 per year.
Expect average insurance prices to start at around $146 per month on a Mustang for a policy with full coverage and decent liability limits, not just the lowest level mandated by state law.
The most expensive Ford Mustang insurance will be on the Shelby GT500 at $2,280 and the Mach-1 Premium at $2,170 per year. Those two trim levels will cost an extra $534 and $424 per year, respectively, over the cheapest Ecoboost Fastback model.
When shopping for a new Mustang, one of the more common comparisons is Mustang Ecoboost vs. GT insurance. Drivers want to know if car insurance costs more for the 5.0-liter V8 in the Mustang GT when compared to the 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine.
Car insurance cost for the Mustang EcoBoost averages $1,799 per year when averaged for all models, while the average cost of Mustang GT insurance is $1,961 per year. That’s a difference of about $160 per year in favor of the Ecoboost models.

Our data focuses on larger companies due to their nationwide availability. Also, these companies do not limit who can buy car insurance from them.
USAA is a well-known company that often has very good car insurance rates, however, only active military, veterans, and their families can purchase a policy from them. If you qualify, you’ll definitely want to include USAA when getting car insurance quotes for your Mustang.
Many smaller companies sell insurance in specific regions or territories, possibly even in just one or two states. Some of these companies include Erie Insurance, Grange Insurance, Shelter Insurance, MAPFRE Insurance, Amica Mutual, and others.
A good way to find some of these smaller companies is to check with a local independent insurance agent or the insurance department for your state. Many times they will not only have cheaper rates but often rate higher in both customer and claim satisfaction than the larger companies.
