New edge all the way. S197 cars are big and bulky. Don't feel like i'm driving a sports car in them.

New edge feel like you are driving a Fox Body and not to mention the interior is horrible. After a S197 I could never go back to that interior. They are all sexy cars but I wouldn't buy another new edge unless it was a low mile Terminator or a new edge Saleen.

Yeah the S197 does have a much nicer interior. I can't say which I like most. I'd say S197 was what got me into Mustangs, but I appreciate the car.

I love the new 5.0 in GHIG or GB

Stock vs. stock I prefer the new 5oh, but the new edge has the most potential of any year

I agree! I've gotten more complements in two months on my 13' 5.0 than I did in my 08' gt in 4 years.

IMO, 5.0 gt is sweet but if you wanna put some mods, new edge just looks nasty! ^_^

Re: Which body looks best new edge or new 5.0

As the saying goes, it's all in the eye of the beholder. Definitely S197 for me--and the '13 in particular. Not that I'm biased or anything...

I like the S197's, but I'll have to say, new edge FTW!

(foxes 87-93 and new edges are my favs)

I would have to say S197, they are what made me fall in love with mustangs when I was 11 and saw a family friend's 05 GT/CS.

Between new edge and 08+ id say new edge but more than those I like the 05-07. Still small and great retro look.

05-07 are smaller and have that flat rearend unlike the newer ones that got fat and have that angled rearend. Know what I mean?

I think you may be confused, the 05-09 are identical, 10+ is when they started with the second iteration of the S197 platform and 13 is the 3rd iteration... Or maybe I'm confused... If I'm still wrong, post pics for me, one of each body style

Re: Which body looks best new edge or new 5.0

The '13s are really just detail changes from the '11 and '12. Front & rear fascias, lights, hood. That's the visual stuff. I'm still learning the interior & mechanical changes.

I think of the '05-10's as the "first gen" S197 and '11+ as the "second gen".

New 5.0. Even though I'm not a fan of the front I feel like I'm really driving an American MUSCLE car.
