CNNMoney 6 cars worth waiting for...2011 Mustang on list

5. Ford Mustang GT 5.0
If you're thinking of buying a 2010 Ford Mustang, stop now and go back to waiting. If you already bought one... sorry. While the 2011 Mustang isn't exactly a new car -- it's just an improvement to the car you can buy now -- but the improvements are major.
Most significant is the new 5.0-liter V8 engine unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show. It's going to replace the 4.6-liter engine in today's car. The new engine is significantly more powerful, producing 412 horsepower compared to 315 from the 4.6-liter engine, while fuel economy is one mpg better.
The base Mustang's V6 engine, which was unveiled in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show, is a lot better, too. It produces 305 horsepower, nearly as much as today's V8. At the same time, it's projected to get 30 mpg on the highway.
Of course there's more to performance than just the engine. Ford promises better steering feel from a new electronic power steering system and the suspension system has also been improved to provide even better handing than the current Mustang.

I think I'm gonna be ill......LOL

You really know how to ruin someone's day.
Of course the body style is a bit different and it's going to cost you more.
The destination charge has doubled since I bought mine and I live less than 30 miles from the plant. (small rant, lol)

i'm sure some of the owners that bought the 2010's aren't to happy but i'm sure the 2011 is more $$ than a new 2010. Probably get a great deal on a 2010 here soon.

I like the thought of the 5.0 but I'd rather buy a low mile '09 and throw a SC on it and smoke a new one all day for thousands less.

They sound great, but I think that I am going to wait a year or two before I get one of the 5.0s just so I can make sure they get all of the kinks out that usually happen when they make a major change. All that said I am still exited!

I'm waiting to see how much more power a supercharger adds since the engine is already at a high compression. Yea Shelby's setup makes about 550hp, but that's not enough proof yet.

Elenora. Watch out, she may kick.

2012 GT Premium: Race red - automatic - 3:31 gears - HID headlights - all weather 19" Pirelli tires - Roush axle-back exhaust, GT/CS Spoiler. Coming soon: quarter panel & rear window louvers

well Shelby threw a PB blower on the GT350. So it can handle at least moderate boost from the factory.
