I recently rented a '16 Ecoboost from AVIS. Every time I think of the new Mustang, the thought of that football field size hood immediately comes to mind. That ruined it. I don't care about all the improvements in the 15+. That dam hood nixes them all. I love my '14 and everything about it.

How about the 4.6 vs the 5.0?


I see 4.6 GTs and CSs with very low miles for less than 1/2 what they sold for new.


I like the 11+ body style better, but it doesn't hurt to shop.


The only 4.6 I have owned was a F150, and I have not driven a 5.0.


I was always into the old iron, I sold two 65s last year because I didn't have parking and I didn't want the weather to destroy them. They were both really nice cars.


I followed the misses today, she was driving the 94 vert, that's still a sharp looking car.

What kept me out of a new Mustang for 16 years (I've had 5, all 5.0s, from '68 to the 2014 I have now) was that gas sucking taxi motor that is the 4.6. Even the supposedly improved 3V was a bit of a ******* child. They sound good, no question but, performance is lacking and they have weak internals if you press them hard. Block is good, rotating assembly, junk beyond 450. Finally, they got the car right in 2011, in my opinion. I bought a 2012 new but, sadly, I killed it after supercharging it. Now I have the '14 and it's great as is. Little shot of nitrous for track hilarity and all's good.

2014 Premium GT, SGM, Brembo, Auto, Tech, Comfort, etc. GT500s, Steeda UCA, VMP auto tune, 100 shot on BBR tune, best et: 11.38 at 120.85

2012 GT, Candy Red, Brembo, 3.73, Tech, Comfort, etc. Procal tune, Roush upper, UMI LCAs, Steeda red bracket, GT500s, 28X10X16 Hoosier slicks, best et: 11.91 at 115.23 RIP

Ford made a few engine changes on the '15 .. The 2 biggie's are the revised intake with charge motion plates similar to the 3V and new heads with bigger valves, valve springs and cams.

The engine responds to modd'ing very well from what I've seen.

Ford also beefed up the rods so the revised engine can handle 800+hp easy.

I kinda like the new body in the darker colors, but the white and orange just don't work for me.

I owed a 2011 V6 that was a great car. I loved the backend of the 2011 but hated the 12-14 rear tail lights. I love the my 2015 and as it has already been stated the older models don't really compare. It really comes down to what you want as a consumer. We are all partial to what we own so I would suggest that you drive a few and then make a decision. If you want a GT don't settle for a anything less because you will not be happy. I talked myself into a V6 in 2011 and ended up trading for a 15 because that was what I always wanted.(GT)

How true this is! I bought a 2012 V6 Premium and loved the car. But there was something seriously missing. Being a child of the '60s, I seriously yearned for a V8. So I was 95% happy with the V6. That 5% unhappy sucks. In order to quench that thirst and fill the void, I had planned to get a 2015 GT but ended up with my 14 GT as the 15's were coming out (got a killer deal and I couldn't warm up to the new 15 styling). I got the 14 fresh off the truck and couldn't be happier in every way.

I love our 94 GT but the performance is very poor by todays standards for a 5 liter V8. I may sell my 64 F100 this spring, I wouldn't feel so bad about parting with the cash on a new(er) car then. The F100 will bring 12-15k.

After much deliberation I have decided that the only Mustang I will be happy with is a GT.


The wife is not willing to spend the cash on a new one so t looks like a 11-14 is what we are in the market for.


I would consider a 05-10 if the options and miles are right


I need to sell the 94 first.

I love my 12
not to say I don't like the 15s
may trade up in a few yrs to the 2017 in the year 2020
3 yrs old and you get the most depreciation
example bought my 2012 gt vert for 25000 Canadian dollars in the yr 2015 3yrs old
the price new here in Canada for that car was 48000 dollars Canadian
the car had 30000 kms on it or 18000 miles
it was like brand new to me
noo issues so far
very happy

Loooong day today. I got about 15 min behind the wheel of the new ride.


Even with the wimpy 2.73s, I would say the 3.7 is quicker than our bone stock 1994 5.0.


I like it. Road trip to Savannah tomorrow, so will get about 400 miles on it.
