Danmit. I wanted them to badge the sides with ss, you can do it yourself but it should come with them.

And will have less horsepower and tq ......I hope this explains our point.

Don't get me wrong, I am all for american muscle, but the craze for the mustang, even the 2010 isnt there. Nor do I see them dropping a 6.2 and being successful with it unless they want to sell it for 25k, which also wont happen.

Slap a name on the side and your mustang just became "special edition"
Ford killed the 6.2 idea not too long ago. There will be no 6.2 l engine anytime soon (unless they lied).

Ford has a history of making power out of smaller engines, so you never know exactly how they'll surprise us this time around.

You have valid arguments...however, I believe part of Ford success has been because they offer low prices. Yes, the new camaro and challenger are better quality each having their own perks as far as interior and such, but realize the mustang appeals GREATLY to youth and women who arent ethusiasts. As much as we all may be love the american motor...we are the minority these days. We may argument the mustang has a cheap interior, but with rebates you can get a V8 GT for less than 25k now...a regular ole college student (which a majority of my friends are)...their eyes light up when they hear that. You add 5k for a base camaro, 10k for the package we all want... EVEN THOUGH I truly feel its a step above, it is just out of the reach of most...

I can see Ford adding 30-50 hp, doing a facelift, and minor touches in the interior, but not as drastic as many seem to be saying. Hell the concepts I have seen just look like a rounded and smoothed out version of the current vehicle...Ford's prices keep them in the game..I don't see them tampering with that.

does anyone know if the SS stock rear spoiler is going to be a lip or an actual wing like the one they showed on the red camaro with the ground effects, hockey stripes and black wheels a couple months ago?

Man, I sure am trying, but I don't really notice the huge differences you guys are seeing between the bumpers in the different models. Sure, the grill looks a little different, but what about the actual bumper?

Granted, I am just now trying to get into the whole muscle car 'scene', so little subtleties like these make it that much harder. Anyone care to explain?

i got my ss used in 2004 for 15k???? wow what dealer did you go to i dont want to ever go there ....

you said used... he's talking new. BIG difference.

all new cars take a depreciation hit when they cross the curb out of the dealership. it's all about the first year. i know i can wait one or two model years and then buy one used for about half what they cost new. it's just the nature of the beast.

this is also why the first year's payments are all interest. the bank wants to be sure they get their money up front as opposed to in later years. if they waited for their money, people would never be "uypside down" on their loan (owing more than the car is worth) because you would be making principal-only payments. the only way out of this is to pay off the loan early or pay cash for the car. either way, you still take the hit on depreciation.

I'd really like to see the 5.0 in the stang again and IMO if they give it 375hp it will run with the maro. That being said, I doubt it will get indy suspension and it will gain some weight. After I install a CIA and full exhaust on the maro I'm really gonna focus on weight reduction because the power is there. It's going to be my fair weather driver so I could do without some of the safety equipment.

I hope Ford does upgrade the Mustang, more power, better interior, etc. I don't think Dodge will be around in 5 years so Chevy needs competition from Ford to continue to improve the Camaro.

Yes all Dodge makes is GAS GUZZLING OBESE PIGS lol... they will be lucky to survive 5 years more like 3 , look at there truck (HEMI) sales are horrible hell they can't even give them away , too bad I did like the 60s and early 70s mopars but times are changing... CHEVY HAS THE VOLT WHICH MANY SAY IS THE FUTURE OF THE COMPANY AND WILL SAVE THEM plus they have the most fuel efficient line up of all the Manufacturers even more than TOYOTA or HONDA , Ford is also smart by using a 4.6 l in there Stang to save fuel I think the LEGENDARY 5.0 will be back for the 2010 Stang it makes sense for the times , a small block with high HP and good fuel economy I doubt they will use the 6.2L they were talkin about it is just too big , they will also offer the ECOBOOST for the GT again to save fuel and give cosumers choice ,remember they only use a 5.4 in the Shelby GT 500 there top dog , plus Ford is rumored to be working on a similar vehicle as the VOLT they know they have to...

Thanks Jim and I believe I said top dog for 2002 which I believe was the Z28 And you are right about depreciation, I think it is 15% just by driving it off the dealers lot.
