Well..I guess anyone has the right to be upset by this..but honestly, The mustang isn't a hybrid (even the "ecoboost") It's not marketed to people who was "great gas milage" yah know? I mean yes they have to compete wit the other foreign sports cars and have pressure with increasing gas prices but...it's not THAT big of a deal. + I've had 3 mustangs both 5.0 and 3.7V6 and I got better highway MPG's than either of them were rated for. But in the end, I didn't buy them for the appeal of gas milage...I don't really care. I just think that people who are looking for a fuel efficient car should get a hybrid or if they're looking for something "sporty" get a european tiny sports car. Those people should stay away from american muscle, which has never been centered around MPG's. With that said, I am confused as to why the V6 went down but I would assume it's because ford is trying to phase it out and just offer the ecoboost and GT.

Other side note: I am also very excited about the 350, the rumors and pictures flying around are very exciting. I am interested to see if Ford actually IS implementing a flat-plane crank and if so, how well they'll engineer it.
