2005 Mustang price

I am watching Motorweek on SpeedTV right now. They just said the price for both the 2005 3.5l V6 and 4.6l GT will be under $20,000. Wtf?

Yup, that's what they said. (2004) GT's are under 20k as it is now I believe... but it's when you start throwing in premium GT features like leather, cruise control, etc. that you start bumping up that price tag. I donno... could be wrong...

It's a 4.0 L v6 but that will be nice. I can get new 04 v6's for 13990 from a local svt dealer...not too shabby.

I thought the 2005 was a 3.5 and the 2006+ will be 4.0s? Or something?

Qtd from the February 2004 Motor Trend sitting in my lap:
"Don't write off the base powerplant as strictly for rental car use. The old, grumbly 3.8-liter OHV 90-degree V-6 has given way to an updated 4.0-liter V-6 rated at 202 horsepower. This engine is an inherently balanced 60-degree design and is also a SOHC unit. It's much the same "Cologne" unit as found in the Ford Explorer, but this is its first appearance in a car platform. It, too, can be had with your choice of a five-speed manual or automatic."

Qtd from the February 2004 Car and Driver now in my lap:
"The SOHC 12-valve, 4.0-liter v-6 with 202 horsepower and 235 pound-feet, also running in the ranger pickup, opens the Mustang's power resume."

As far as pricing goes...same 2004 Car and Driver says :
"Although not announced yet, the base sticker prices for the four-seat coupe and convertible should be close to 2004 pricing, says Ford: about $18,000 for a V-6 coupe to about $28,000 for a V-8 convertible."

My main problems with the new mustangs...
"Buy the V-6 model, and the 16-inch alloys can be fitted with optional three-eared chrome center spinners."
Blah, I refuse to see that. I will rip them off all new Mustangs I see. That is just plain wrong...

The new platform should be pretty nice overal in my opinion. To quote Car and Driver again :
"Expect 60 mph to whiz by in the low-five-second range in a manual V-8, somewhere around seven seconds for a V-6."
Not too shabby in my opinion.

Any more questions?
I'm in the process of digging out my latest Automobile magazine to get the stats from it.

For 40 years Mustang has been about a sporty car with power (engine wise) options at a cheap price. Plus it has always been marketed to the teenager.

I don't think the prices will change. I still think a base model Mustang (V6, 5spd, no options.) will the around $12,000.

I just don't see how they could produce the GT that cheap. When I bought my car the v6's were 16k+ and the GT's started at 24k.

Guys, yall seem to be taken this the wrong way... The base price for the 05 GT will be about $26000. The base price for the 05 v6s will be around 18000. Get it? There will be NO new 05 GT sold for under 25000 gurranteed.
