Really? Could have sworn the 21" wheel package was discontinued and these were 20".

The rear spoiler is the worst part of it. More aerodynamic or not, it looks just plain weird. The real question is why did they feel the need to adjust the styling?

Why has ford adjusted the Styling of the Mustang 3 times since 2009?
Competition, if you stay stagnant people will get bored and sales will suffer..
Many people buy on styling alone, and if they sell the same exact looking car for many years people that buy on styling have no reason to trade.

My feelings on the SS like the one in that video are starting to change for the worse. The more I see that front end the more I don't like what I see. The chrome strip makes it look like and old guy with a unibrow and that hood extracter looks totally out of place to me.
The funny thing for me is that I don't mind the taillamps ,but the redesign on the rear fascia looks bad. I don't like that it's so huge now and comes up so high. All these changes will only look good on mainly black because that color will mask the flaws.


Edit: The comments above are only for the SS/RS cars. I absolutely love the looks of the Z/28 at least in white. I'm still not crazy about the rear lower fascia on that too ,but it does somehow work better with the different design of the Z/28 taillamps.

FYI if you adjust your mirrors correctly, there are NO blind spots.

Pretty soon it'll go back to how it was in late 2nd gen. 3rd and 4th gens. Looks, a little luxury and no performance. These high HP performance cars will not be around forever. Well... They may, but.... About 5% will be sold because of the price they'll be at.

Like it or not, I think it's great that at least now we can tell for sure what year the car is...lol...What, four years of the same exact look?...Re-fresh was long overdue...
I always thought it was part of the fun to see what next year would look like...lol..

The '14s are beautiful and will sell just fine...Most car buyers want "new" and couldn't care less what last year's model looked like...(like ours)...lol..

Honestly, the car looks a lot better in person. Actually looks smaller than the current model. I swear. But yeah I stand by my statement... it looks better in person. Pics and videos don't do this refresh justice at all. They got rid of excess "CHUNK" in the body panels imo.

I prefer the Z/28 rear lamps over these LED lights. They're similar but it should be white in the center of all of them. Why GM didn't do this on the first production model 2010 is beyond me? They went retro but failed at the rear with those lamps. But wth? I love mine. I will but another at some point. Ill just have to see what comes available at a good price.

If the front end, and rear tail-lights were some "mod" that a member here had done on their own, the forum would be packed with others trying to copy it...lol...

...But, OMG, GM does some mods, and it's the end of the world!...lol..

You really need to see the car in person. Both the tail lights look great in the flesh and Red Rock is an awesome color.
