Revised 2010 Ford Mustang
I thought this was supposed to be a 2009 model.
I guess not…
This will be a revised or “facelifted” model. Not an all new car.
Just like Ford did with the Escape. The glass area stays pretty much the same.
But everything else looks new. And I would guess the base engine will be the new 3.5 Liter V6, finally.
This will give Ford a better chance to fight the all new Camaro and the cheaper versions of the Challenger.

I have an 06 GT and I really love it. The only thing I can’t stand is the cheap materials used for the interior. However I will note that after 20K miles the car is still rattle free.
IF Ford was asking, I would make the following wishlist:
3.5liter V6 option
6 speed auto or manual
Seat mounted seatbelts
Higher quality materials in the interior
Optional IRS (if not standard)
I think the new one might very well address almost all of these concerns.
This reminds me.
Last year Ford sent me a survey about the next Mustang. One of the questions asked if I would be Ok with a Turbo or Supercharged V6 if it got better mileage and at least 350HP.
I voted hell yea because I’m not really a Mustang purist. I would love to see the weight savings and better fuel economy from a suped up V6 as long as the torque and HP numbers are there. IMO, if the new EPA standards go forward, Ford will be Twincharging that 3.5 V6.
I wonder if Ford is still going to have the antenna on the front fender, I know it’s a minor thing but it makes the car look old !! Hopefully Ford will move the antenna into the rear window.
