Knowing Ford..."over 700" means 701, lol!!

Just joking! I look forward to seeing all the official numbers. I'll be ready to buy one depending on MSRP and if it comes without markups.

If it has the A10. Has at least a 305 rear minimum tire. And puts down 700 at the wheels and looks mean as hell and is around $75k. Say bye bye to the Zl1. Sorry. But, I won't be holding my breath. They were talking about it up at the shop today as I was dropping my Zl1 off for Meth Injection. We shall see what comes out. Can't wait.

Why wait for 2020 (MY 19) when there are so many options out there now? Why burn mental energy on this right now?

Yep. By then something hotter will be coming in 2021, and on and on.

They're not even in the same category or price range. I hope the refresh next year will make the ZL1 even more of a beast, while the Hellcat has 707hp, it's a heavy boat and you can be sure the Mustang will be more nimble so Chevy needs to step it up. I'll still end up buying the ZL1 though cause I know Ford dealers will mark up the car.

It'll likely have an MSRP of $75K and an ADM of $25K.

Regardless, it is good that the pony wars are back! Should be fun to watch!\

Very curious to see which direction they are going with this car, with the wing in the teaser shows me they are going for handling more than straight line. I wonder if they are just going to split the difference between the ZL1 and ZLE or if they will go this route

500 Vs ZL1
500R vs ZLE

You can bet that by the time the 500 comes out the ZL1 will have a horsepower bump. That is called marketing. You saturate the market with a level of competence, and offer bigger badder and saturate again. "Wash rinse repeat"
