Well, after seeing the new pics of the car, my first impression is a, "Plasticized Ricer Honda-ized Car"..... my swag is most of their target buyers don't even know how to drive a manual transmission...... and all the electronic-gimmicks.... give it a few years after the warranty runs out and there will be plenty of good used parts available cheap....because alot are going to be in junkyards....... oh excuse me....I meant Auto Recycling Centers 馃槀

The Manual will STILL be offered in all V8 Mustangs for 2024!
If I were ever to actually buy an Eco-Boost, it would be for my wife, and she prefers an automatic anyway.

Since my personal cars are all V8 powered, it wouldn鈥檛 affect me anyway.

I鈥檓 not knocking on the Eco-Boost, I just prefer Rocking on my V8-Boost.

The number of people in the United states who can not drive a manual is shameful ,because honestly it鈥檚 not that hard. The last time I took mine for oil change at ford service , someone besides the mechanic brought it out when done because the mechanic couldn鈥檛 drive a manual trans.
on the plus side I guess that means there are less people who can steal my car lol

The eventual extinction of the 3 pedal Mustang is, in this old schooler's humble opinion, yet another sign the demise of western civilization is upon us.

LOL - my kids can play Call of Duty at a speed that is a blur on their compooter monitors, but they have zero interest in driving a 3 pedal. SMH

Yes, I know AT's and paddle shifters and all that are way more reliable and also quicker.

To me, and you may call me eccentric, the fun of driving involves all four limbs in a competent, coordinated manner.

I made my kids learn on a manual & test in a manual. I do have a son that鈥檚 a total AH, whom I never taught. He can鈥檛 drive worth a crap, and is scared of a manual. The other 5 have no issues.

I bought a manual without even knowing how to drive it. It was the 85' GT that I've eluded to many times over the years. My boss at the time owned it and I knew I had to have it, best automotive decision I'd made up to that point. It was my daily for 16yrs and it hurt selling it, but it went to my brother so it's still in the family.

I just got back into the manual Mustang game with my very recent purchase of a replacement vehicle for my recently totaled Crown Vic. I had forgotten what an engaging driving experience was about and I plan on keeping this one around for awhile.
