That's why I said keep the reg. V6 but have the option from the factory to slap a turbo on it. The main idea behind the Mustang was an affordable vehical that you could add options to. I just feel ford should offer more engine options

That could be a possible route in the same way TRD does their superchargers for thr Scions. Only issue then is that you aren't designing the motor for boost so you're likely to suffer lesser reliability.

The first mustangs were coupes, convertibles and fastbacks. Although Ford calls my 2012 a coupe it is no different than the first fastbacks.

I see what your saying but the fast back they're talking about is where the roofline goes all the way to the trunk lip. Search for a Lee iacocca mustang. Beautiful.

Why s everyone stuck on an arbitrary idea that Ford is now making a ricer or euro car? It is sad we call a euro car something lite, powerful, and good.

Someone here compared a BMW sedan to a Fusion. Umm. Do you know the difference between front wheel drive and rear? Which BMW do you mean?

And at the end of the day, Ford is becoming a company one wants to buy. Ford, GM and chrysler used to be United States producers that were considered junk, and cheap. But a quality car easily compares to Infiniti, Lexus, Benz, so on. The differences become minute. "Oh, I chose the M56x over the MKS awd. Why? The silver shavings in the special wood cut for the interior." I would never buy an Audi for the electrical systems. Everyone I know who has had one will never buy again, when it goes, the car is not worth repairing. The BMW people complain about quality. Luxury now is Lexus, Infiniti, Benz, then Lincoln and Acura.

Ford is closing the gap between "I got a Ford because I can afford it" and "I was going to get another car, but it wasn't $xxxxx.xx better than the Ford."

Now I am not arguing Ford is the hands down best ever. But since the late 90s, Ford has been trying to make a paradigm. They have been working hard, and we are reaping what they sowed. They are now ranked with Toyota in quality, and look pretty good, to me. No one has to like them, but if Ford makes a good car that is powerful, fuel efficient, reliable, and a decent price, then I am not going to complain. They would have to work pretty hard to ruin the looks so bad to stop sales.

Amen!!!!! You said it perfectly. Ford is pouring millions into Lincoln. By 2025 all Lincoln's will be a completely different car.

At the consumer level many dealerships are starting to create separate waiting rooms for Lincoln owners, in addition to getting a free car wash, and Courtesy car.

Ford has said over and over it will still be a Mustang. You'll notice it at the end of the day.

Haha. The concept in person had way way more impact than the 300. And it was packed with sweet tech.

They were rolling pillboxes. My boss just bought the latest one, and it looks a lot better than previous years. That Interceptor concept looks a lot like a stretched Taurus.
