Not to sure about the whole thing. The style doesn't look too bad but it seems like Ford is lowering itself to the likes of Japanese compact sports cars. It's sickening actually. I'm a huge American muscle car fan. Especially Ford. This will definitely give those Chevy and Dodge, Mustang haters fuel to talk smack. Ford took the lead in bringing back the classic style and performance of the first generation of muscle cars with today's technology and Chevy and Dodge followed suit. Ford needs to stay the course and continue the great things its doing.
Taking the muscle out of the muscle car is not it. Turbo?!? Four cylinder?!? Can see all the crap talking on that one. Then the all around shrinking of the car itself. Bottom line is, stop trying to make this muscle car into a Japanese compact sports car. People who buy muscle cars should come to an understanding that its going to cost some gas. Muscle cars were not made for fuel economy. Want to save on gas, don't get a muscle car and go ahead and buy that Accord two door coupe. Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
First, how can you form an impression of the car's looks when you've seen less than a quarter of the car without the camo on? And even the uncovered part has black tape and no factory paint. Yet despite this, you make a blanket statements about the car's appearance.
Second, who cares what some Camaro owner or Challenger owners says or thinks? People buy what they like. That won't change. Some people will like those. Some people will like Mustangs. BTW have you seen the new Camaro with its cheezy air vent on the hood and the Honda Prelude-esque tail lights? I guess some people like it; to each their own. But if I like something and someone else doesn't, I brush it off because everybody has different tastes.
The four cylinder motor is rumored to have somewhere around 350 HP, which is 50 more than an 05-10 GT in a car that will probably be lighter. Sounds like plenty of muscle to me. Pretty sure it will blow away an Accord coupe, be very fun to drive, and be reasonable on gas and on purchase price.
You seem awfully concerned with what others think. To me that's a crappy way to go through life. If you enjoy something, you shouldn't be concerned with someone stranger's opinion, especially some Camaro guys posting on the internet.
And you're one of the few people I've seen complaining about the car getting smaller and lighter. If you want performance, you want lighter weight. I love my car, but it's a boat. I could definitely do with some sharper handling and a lighter curb weight.
