When completely developed, boosted, leaned on, etc the advantage over the old 4v and the 3v will be negligible.

But, if someone were planning on not modding the crap out of the car and going with just a CAI, some exhaust and a tune the new 5.0 motor would be nicer to start with.

That being said I would rather have an all aluminum 5.4 4v to start with myself.

I went to my local Ford dealership just the other day and I was looking at the prices of both the 2010s and 2011s. Some of the 2010 GTs were higher priced then some of the 2011 GTs. I don't know why everyone keeps saying the 2010s were so cheap. The difference is about $1500 which is completely reasonable for an additional 100hp, 6 speed, 7k redline, and better mileage.

I could maybe see people getting deals on them now since the 2011s are in, but last year and earlier this year I doubt Ford had any discounts on the 2010 models.

Around here (the Carolinas), dealers are offering deep discounts and 0% long term financing on the left over 2010s. I even saw a new 09 GT still on a lot a few weeks back. There are still 09 and 10 GT500s left over also. I found a new 09 selling for 39K. Very tempting indeed!

2008 Vapor Silver GT, 5 Spd Manual Brenspeed Stg 1 Edelbrock E Force, Liberty built 3650 trans w/26 spline input shaft, N2MB WOT Box, GT 500 Fuel System, Kooks Long Tubes, Dynotech Drive Shaft, 3:73 Gears, Steeda UCA & LCAs, BMR LCA Relocation Brackets, Exedy Mach 500 clutch, Nitto Drag Radials

0% for 72 months is worth a solid 6k in savings. Some markets (not mine unfortunately) were offering additional cash discounts while track pack equipped models were still around. Combine the two and you could easily see a savings of 8 to 10 thousand off an identically equipped 10 vs 11

I just bought a perfect '08 Bullitt with 9000 miles for $18,000 less than a similarily equipped '11 5.0L. Sure I wanted a new 5.0 but 18gs more...yikes. I'll get one when they're one or two years old.
