  1. FINALLY!!!!!!!!!

    Okay. That settles it.

    That's my next car.

    5.0, 6-speed, track pack.

    So stoked!!! 😀

  2. Im happy that the Mustang will finally have a the power to blow away the camaro.

    Im NOT happy, however, that the new V6 will probably be faster than my 05 GT.

  3. is the new tweaked 3.7L going on the MKS as well as the base engine? Starts to blur the line with the EcoBoost in terms of hp (though prob. not torque).

  4. The only fight the Camaro has left would be MPG….but I could be dead wrong…in fact, I hope that I am! More power and better MPG will make this the leader (we already know the Challenger is behind in both power and MPG with the 3.5L V6).

  5. those aren't actually official #'s. those are from a message board site that someone anonymously posted. might not want to hang your hat on those #'s.

  6. That is really damn good-looking car. Whay can't the Japs or Koreans or Germans pen a siluette like that???

    I think the Koreans and Germans already have surpassed this.

    MB CLK for the Germans, and the Genesis Coupe for the Koreans.

    I am not impressed at all with how the '10 Mustang turned out. Performance wise it is a step up, and the interior is a leap forward but styling just doesn't do anything for me.
