Stang, 'Maro, ...Chally?... Lengy?... there's no short cut for Challenger i guess.

Not sure if anyone posted this but it's a fairly unbiased review of the Challenger, Camaro, and Mustang. Despite the live axle, the mustang actually out handled the Camaro's IRS and the Camaro only beat the mustang through 60 by .2 and half a second in the quarter. Keep in mind that's 300hp vs 422, and a 5 speed vs a 6 speed, and about 5k cheaper.

well, i was driving today, and i saw the new mustang, and i must say, i dont think it was up to par. looked very nice, but quiet as can bee, and very tame looking, very plasticy and big gaps, as said by the test guy. but overall, i think the cammaro should win, most hp, looks good also, but my personal fave is the challenger.

The 2010 Mustang looks great IMO. The V6 even looks challenging. I think Ford has came a long way with the new body styles and now working on losing weight and making the vehicle structure easier to repair.

when the next mustang is due for a total redesign i wouldn't mind if they moved back closer to the fox body size.

I highly doubt that would happen. If they did size it down we would probably lose the v8. The mustang really isn't that bad in size and weight. Comparing it to the other two in the video. If the mustang had similar HP it would of destroyed both other them. Hell that era mustang is already 4 years old in design and its still pretty much as good as a brand new design that took both chevy and dodge YEARS to come out with finally. I do think they need to offer a model of the current mustang with IRS and another 100 or so hp and no not a gt500. They really should bring the svt cobra back. If they can bring svt back for the new f150 raptor why not the mustang to?

yea I agree. They should run a limited number of SVT's with a 5.0 or 5.4engine like the cobra R back in 2000 to boost the name and build hype. Then produce a few thousand SVT's with the power adder and maybe the 4.6 3v, a smaller but cheaper engine; similar to what they did in 03-04.
