Push button start

I know it's just trivial, but when do you guys think the new mustang will get a push button start option?

Maybe never, or a long time from now, since that seems to go against the "Retro" theme. I'm just guessing of course. Would have been nice to have for the 2011s with the new engines!

I think it's retro since my dad's '41 Ford Pickup has push button start, why not the mustang?

I'm guessing they're probably saving it for the next-gen Mustang.

And that PU might have had only one vacume wiper and a crank out windshield with a lot other things that got improved. Never had understood why a push-button starter in today's age. Are they just that "cool"?

the new focus will have the push start option, so I would expect to see it in 2012?

I've seen some kits that install a pushstart button in the center dash's electric outlet. Not a bad deal considering the other in the console.

As long as it's still easy to instantly shut the motor off in an emergency.

I think what he's talking about is a keyless push button start, the kind where you just carry the key fob in your pocket and can start your car with the button as long as the key fob is in the interior or trunk. The Challenger has one, and it's pretty sweet. I assume they will put one in soon, because the new Taurus and Fiesta have it already.

My wife has Push Button on her Altima, and it is a cool feature. just not having to get keys out, and being able to lock and unlock the doors/trunk without having to dig keys out of my pocket, handy when my hands are full.

Valet parking is nice as well, as the car will remain running even after the person with the FOB gets out. So you don't leave your keys with the valet.

Question is, how are they supposed to bring you your car back if they don't even have the FOB? Or do you leave it hidden?

I think Ford should at least offer it as option. Like others said the Challenger has it and so do a lot of other cars these days.
