I paid $19,800 last January for my '14..... with auto included. $24-25k is no bargain.

I believe so too, they just need to use up some of the parts from the parts bin.

Too much overlap on the performance of those 2 engines.

I agreed, I think they will stop making the V6. All the marketing has been towards the ecoboost and 5.0, haven't heard much about the V6. Don't think it changed much from 2014, haven't seen the specs, or any professional review of it.

I would buy the 4 banger before I bought the V6 now but then again after hearing how what I considered embarrasing the 4 turbo sounded with an off road exhaust system, I would only buy the 5.0 at this point. That 4 banger may have awesome potential with crazy power but the thing sounds like a weed wacker or my leaf blower and I don't want too hear that *****. I don't care if that 4 banger could run the 1/4 mile in 4 seconds and hold 75% boost. That ***** sounds awful.

It sounded embarrassing for an iconic muscle car and just couldn't bare to listen to that leaf blower sound at WOT.

It will depend on production costs. If the V6 costs significantly less to produce the the EB 2.3, it'll stick around for longer. Oddly, Ford sometimes charges about $1,000 more for the EB 2.0 and other times charges about $1,000 more for the V6, depending on the model. So production costs could be similar.

Bcus they are ugly af. I could make a better design with my eyes closed. It's not even a mustang in my opinion. They tried too hard on making it more futuristic. 3/10

13-14 has to be my favorite hands down, 9/10. Only thing would make it better is if it had a better paint job with more high end paint.

Lol yup sucks wish they had good glossy paint like some of the high end brands, but hey can't expect a lot with a $27K American Muscle car with 370HP at the wheels.

Nope, but the rust issues with the 13 - 14's is bull**** regardless.

I bought my 12 when the 13 just were coming to the dealerships. They had a black 13 almost got it. But I'm glad I didn't. Knew something was up with the price being cheaper on the 13's vs new 12's

idk but I doubt there is a paint diff between the 11/12's and 13/14's

I think most of the rust is inadequate prep. I've read a bit about aluminum in body panels recently and the techniques/tools to repair it are going to be a learning curve for auto body shops.

If I could do it over again. I'd get an 11-12 GT Premium, swap taillights to 13-14, then proceed with the rest of my mods.

And a lot of the V8 guys say that V6's in a mustang is embarrassing for an 'iconic muscle car'.

Fact is ford has to stay current because if the base models don't sell then the performance 'Iconic Muscle car' models will die. And everyone crying about Ford putting a 4 cylinder in a mustang and ruining the cars image clearly has no clue of the mustangs history. The first generations had an inline 6 option, and 2nd and 3rd generations had a 4 cylinder option and it was still able to become an iconic car. It wasn't until the 4th generations that the 4 cylinder option went away. And if a 88 HP pinto 4 cylinder engine didn't destroy the mustangs reputation I doubt a 300+ HP 4 cylinder turbo engine will.

So we have to start this argument again. All the V8 people need to send thank you notes to the V6 or 4 banger people for saving the mustang from moth balls.
Maybe this is true, maybe not.
Corvettes haven't offered a 6 cylinder since 1956 and they have somehow managed to survive. They offered different size V8's.
Maybe if Mustangs were only V8's since the 60's we would have 600 HP stock Mustang GT's. Who knows?

Very possible but the business models for the Corvette compared to the Mustang is apples and oranges. Corvette is marketed as a premium sports car and the mustang is marketed as an everyday affordable car. Does Chevy produce less corvettes then mustangs? Yes, but it a $60,000+ car. If Ford only produced Mustangs with V8's it would have significantly less production/ sales therefore limiting its ability to take advantage of economies of scale in production. So could Ford make the Mustang with only a V8? Of course but it would probable significantly increasing the price and then people would complain about that.

The business model is different now of course. This goes back to the fifties, marketing was different. The vette is also a 2 seater.

Ford thought in the 90's they could ditch the V8, and go 4 and 6 only with the Probe as the Mustang and sell more cars. But that blew up in their face. I'm not arguing the merits of a V8 only Mustang.

My point is that it's a moot argument that the only reason their is a V8 Mustang is thanks to the V6 or 4, the opposite could be said as well. Fords current marketing plan supports all 3 platforms. I'm just tired of the same argument.

Chevy runs deep, don't step in Chevy.

It had nothing to do with the corvette being a 2 seater it it had to do with the cost of manufacturing. Materials used to build anything generally go down the more you buy (economy's of scale) as well as any overhead or sunk costs can get divided among total units. More units made the cheaper the cost per unit, therefore more then likely a cheaper price to the customer.

If the production numbers were nearly cut in half it would not make business sense to continue production at the current price point therefore the mustang ( as we know it now) probable wouldn't have been successful. Although ford cares about performance at the end of the day it's a business and cares more about making money.

I'm not saying the V8 guys need to worship or send thank you cards to the v6/i4 guys but the mustang wouldn't be what it is today without the all of the models that are offered. If it was kept around it would likely be a different car.

I hate using a vette as an example for anything. No one can see past the current models and get all wrapped up in the whole thing.
And then we're back to no V6 no V8 argument.

There is 0 reason for them to keep the V6 around, look for it to be gone this MY or next. I really do hate where the Mustang has gone with this iteration... oh well, as I've been saying there are plenty of clean 11/12 GT garage queens out there.

It gives ford a reason to put the Ecoboost as an "upgrade" and not as a base model. Therefore higher price. After seeing the 15 in person I do like it. Might look for an Ecoboost after college.
