I really Hope this isnt for real

Detroit -- Today Ford announced that after over four decades of selling the Mustang as a two door coupe 2+2, they will offer the new 2006 Mustang in a wagon body style. In a highly controversial move, Ford justified this choice saying that it would provide competition to Dodge's unchallenged Magnum sport wagon. Ford also mentioned that this Mustang wagon might even find it's way overseas. Available are the regular coupes 4.0L SOHC 16-valve V6 and 4.6L SOHC 24-valve V8 engines. Transmission choices also resemble the coupes with either a 5-speed manual or automatic. Base prices have not yet been announced, but expect a 5-speed V8 to retail somewhere around 26,000. While not exactly trumping the Magnum in power, it definately provides a stronger argument with the price.

when you have dumbasses leading the way what do you expect.... if you dont have the ability and aptidude (spelling) to perform a job you should NOT be appointed to the role, regardless of who you know or who your relatives are.

Dodge is good for two things, burning alot of oil and giving cender blocks a reason to live.

Competing with dodge isnt the problem although As gay as that looks they dont care about what their cars look like that just want to make more $ over everyone else. And if they want a challege for the dodge then this is the car.

It's not true...

Picture is most likely a photo-chop and the article was probably just butchered and edited by some ******. I've been searching the net for awhile and haven't found anything remotely close to this "wagon".

Ford only scrapped it because the top was to heavy to motorize. It was gonna go into production because they just started the rumble seat convertibles.

I saw Mustang Plus' Mustang with that kit at the 40th. Looked real good.

First mistake, it's a four door Mustang. Never in the history of the Mustang will there ever be a four door Mustang. The protype wagon Ford built back in the sixtes was a two door.

I say take that crap to the top of a volcano and drop it in. If the gods spare it and allow it to survive then let Ford build it. But if it just melts. Ford admitts nothing and goes about like they never thought of this Abomination BY GOD !!!!

Those Magnums aren't bad looking cars, BUT, in order to get the R/T version with the hemi and leather interior, you are talking over 30K, from what I have seen of them on dealer lots and the road, they are building about half a dozen or more of the 3.4L v6 versions to one of the Hemi R/Ts. I think Ford would be insane to build a Mustang wagon to compete with that car, I don't see that many of them on the road really.

If this were even remotely close to a concept from ford itself, it'd be in an auto show or two by now, and they'd be starting the publicity/hipe 2-3 months ago
