Finally got a 5.0!...but it's not a mustang!





Traded in my 13 XLT 302A Ecoboost Scab for this awesome 14 FX4 402A 5.0.
No it's not the Mustang's Coyote but it still hauls and sounds badass.

Wish I would've just bought this truck 2 years ago when I bought the 13. These trucks with the FX Appearance Package look so menacing going down the road, I couldn't resist the extra package.

I had the ecoboost in my 13. It was a great engine but I really don't haul much anymore and I didn't want to do dealer trades to get an ecoboost Fx4 and all that b.s.

Besides, throw on what Steven posted and the ecoboost won't touch it lol.

Nice looking truck.

If I was in the market for a truck I would lean toward a Ford SVT Raptor. My neighbor has 2 of them, one blue and the other is black. Awesome trucks.

You know retail on this FX4 wasn't too far off from a Raptor, but the catch is there are virtually zero incentives or applicable rebates on Raptors or any specialty vehicles. So after rebates, incentives, bonus cash all that b.s. the FX4 is way cheaper than the Raptor and is good enough for me. Would love to own one some day though.

That's a clean GT btw...and with 60k miles, nice!

My daily driver is a similar 2012 FX2 ecoboost in white, appearance package with red accent trim on seats, logos, fully loaded/ nav, etc. Though my heated/ac'd seats have holes in them, looks like yours are the ultra suede / alcantara ?



Sticker was $47k, I got it for about $36k after $5k in rebates and $6k off price (below invoice in to the holdback). I looked at Raptors too at the same time... $54k no rebates, NO price negotiations!! So it was $18k more!!

Its all about timing... end of model year when new models are hitting the lot. End of the month, when salesmen & managers want that extra car/truck moved. And I have excellent credit so they know I can walk & go buy somewhere else in a heartbeat.

Nice looking truck! Looks real clean with the graphics removed. I may end up doing the same if I get tired of trying to wax/clean around them.

We basically have the same truck other than the 4wd and Ecoboost...my seats are the black/red piped leather with the vented Alcantara suede inserts - heated and cooled. Does yours have the Sound Screen windshield?

I basically experienced the same thing, rebates and incentives weren't as healthy as in your case but still better than virtually nothing on Raptors. Hell, even the Ranger trade credit for 1k didn't apply to Raptors lol.

Thanks! You know I had the Ecoboost in my 13 XLT and I loved the turbo whoosh and the electric BOV's but there's nothing better than that v8 rumble..and it just feels right in a 1/2 ton pickup. A coworker just put the Outlaw system from Flowmaster on his 14 5.0 and it is stupid loud for a catback setup.

Yeah, I peeled the graphics off the day I got the truck they're too much on white. I like them inn other colors. And the graphics on the '12's looked squared off instead of angled(better) like yours. In hindsight, I wish I had gotten the twin version of mine in black that was on the lot. They even had sequential vin #'s. At the time I was thinking black = too hot, white = cooler, but that doesnt really matter with remote start by the time I get in the vehicle is always bearable. Favorite feature = remote start & 2nd fav. = cooled seats. When i found out neither were available on the 2014 mustang, I almost walked away!!

See I actually don't mind the 12/13 graphics because they are similar to the Mach 1 hood stripe on my Mach..solid matte stripe with the pin stripe surround. But I'd probably get tired of them on a full size truck too.

I didn't know you couldn't option the premium mustangs with cooled seats and remote start. For the money you'd hope that'd be included in the top tier GT's.
