2010 Ford Mustang Pricing Starts at $20,995

Sorry if this is a repost, but i used the search and didn't see it anywhere.

JALOPNIK

Good move for Ford, but who wants to bet this is just for the dummed down no-options-at-all base model?

The base model comes standard with 17' wheels,keyless entry,power windows-locks,cd player........probably the same stuff the Camaro comes standard with. Ford hasn't made a stripper no-options Mustang since the '90s. If you can put up with ugly standard wheels(Camaro),neither Mustang or Camaro need any options really to make them nice cars.

They have that at autoblog and all the comments on the bottom everyone said they would rather pay the extra 2k for the camaro. They all know it's a better car for the money.

It is a better car in every which way you look at it,but that didn't help it in the '90s,once Ford starts the rebates,GM better keep up and vice versa. A 300HP car for under 19K WILL be pretty awesome,if you want the V6.
Both have to contend with the Genesis,that 4-banger might be the most bang for the buck out of the 3.

This is deceptive!!! the $20,995 does not include the $850 destination charge!! nor is it included in the $27,995 for the GT. it is actually $21,845 for the V6 and $28,845 for the V8. But they do include the destination charge for the camaro...DECEPTIVE..

Would rather pay the extra 2 or 3 grand for an LS Camaro or SE Challenger

Yeah, the SE shouldn't even exist. Not nearly enough power to move something that big.

I've never understood the point of buying a V6 pony car (I'll make exceptions for the Camaro's DI V6 and the Ecoboost). The entire point of a pony car is to get a big engine, and a V6 completely defeats the purpose.

And the Mustang's game has ALWAYS been to offer a somewhat inferior product at a lower cost. Considering how well it's worked for the last several years, I can't say I blame their strategy.

2000 bucks more for something that looks better and will outperform it in every way? Good deal.

The SE has better power to weight than the Mustang does . . . heck, my 175 hp Grand Am wouldn't be too far behind a V6 Mustang.

Why buy a V6 pony car? The V6 is about buying a cool looking sporty coupe.

That's a good price for a car that clearly underperforms when compared to the competition. The price should be cheaper.

Yeah, but you can get a decently-equipped GT for the same price as an SE.

And you can get an SE for less than a V6 Mustang. SE starts at $22 500, then employee pricing and $1000 in bonus cash and you're under $20k. You can't just start tossing discounts and incentives on one car and not another.

Does it start at 22k? I saw one today at a Dodge dealer for 28k, although it was reasonably well equipped, thus the comparison.

Was it an SE E package or an SE G package? The SE G package starts at $25k

A V6 in a Mustang fits its overall image as a steed for every need. The V6 Camaro will be a honest-to-goodness sporty car,but the V6 Challenger? Good lord,that car is garbage,the whole idea of a car that looks as good and mean like that with a weak-ass engine is garbage. The new Challenger should be V8 only.

Car and Driver:

Challenger SE - 0-60 7.8 1/4 16.0
Mustang V6 - 0-60 6.5 1/4 15.3

Why buy a Challenger SE? It's a pig.

So they both perform like my grandma but at least the challenger is fresh looking and not sitting on EVERY street corner.

Try the same thing with this pair's predecessors of 1970 or so and you'll find yourself in a bit of a wrestling match. Ain't progress wonderful? Maybe yes, and maybe sometimes it's fun to wrestle."

How in the world could those numbers be so radically different? Yeah the Challengers heavy, and I won't question the accuracy of those times, but wow. I would have pegged them both to be in the 6.5-7.0s range (I don't follow V6 pony car times much).

So add another to the list of "do not buy" until the 2010-2011 model year. There's no reason to buy a Challenger SE,V6 Mustang or Mustang GT this year. I'm really hoping for improvements of the SE and base Mustang,not that i'd consider either but they've got to hold up their end.

So let me get this straight, you guys are dogging cars that have a V6 for not having good performance numbers? You guys are sharp. You dont buy a V6 ponycar for the performance, you buy it for the styling.
