    eh, we had that debate when the wife got her 18 ecoboost car. 10k more upfront, 10mpg less (she does drive a decent amount), higher insurance etc... It was enough to take her out of what she was comfortable spending.

    Yea the insurance is a factor I really didn't take into consideration actually.
    I can definitely see the appeal. It's a great looking car regardless. I guess it plays down to dollars and cents and personal preference.

    That is a really good looking and potent package. I agree that it should sell well. I like the stripe package with the Twister Orange paint.

    Agreed. Should have had the Performance Pack style "blackout" grille treatment.

    I like it. Would make for a hell of a DD. I bet it feels light as hell and very tossable.

    The 2010 GT500 is seen as the oddball Shelby. The 2010 GT? ... the most forgettable V8 mustang produced. I would have been so pissed if I bought a 2010 GT then learned about the Coyote for the 2011.

    As for the HP Mustang, that's really cool. Hopefully they figured out the head-gasket issue on the 2.3. Put this 4 banger on corn with a monster turbo and the A10 and it will hurt A LOT of feelings lol.

    Very smart on fords part. A car that will perform at a v8 level with great handling and a better balance for 10k less than a GT 5.0.

    As much as i love the sound of a 5.0 and v8 power. Its ridiculous to have to pay 47k OTD for just a gt must than in 3 years will be worth half of that price. At least the performance package eco boost is at a level that most people that work could make payments.

    I agree that's why I just bought a 2018 Enterprise Rent A Car with 15,000 miles on it , fully loaded, for $24,000. It was a $37,000 car brand new a year ago. Didn;t pay new car price or new car taxes. :)

    Look at the name. This implies cheap and fuel efficient to me.
    The highest version should still be cheaper than an entry level 5.0

    Or cmon who's the enthusiast that's going to choose the 4 cylinder ?

    As the price for a nice equipped gt is now in the 50k. Those 25-30k EcoBoost are looking alot more buyer friendly.

    At 50k i can buy a 13-14 gt500 with under 5k miles

    I'd like to see an svo with the 2.7 or Lincoln 3.0 but it'd be too close in performance to the 5.0 that I can't see Ford doing it.

    3.0 would be a good choice. The original SVO was on par with the 5.0 GT, so I see no issue with a new one being the same.

    I like it. It will be interesting to see what the actual price ends up at. For me, the Bullitt is the one I want, I just don't want to spend $50k for it. Will the buyer be able to spec leather in this car?
