I'm beginning to like it more, now that I've seen it in other colors than orange. I had a 14 GT Premium and liked it. I've thought about getting another, but find the roof seems too low in the 15 up and I can't get comfortable in it.

I'm 50/50 with the Front Styling..Don't like embedded running line
though GT Badge..Vents could be a bit higher on hood..Tail lights in
my opinion should have been left alone..Exhaust seems cluttered..
I would wait at least 6 months before buying the car with a new
ten speed tranny..Horse power bump of 2 tenths of a second faster
then the 15-17 models worth it? [It may be more]..when a good tune could get you those numbers..I'll wait and see reviews from Mags and every day buyers before
I decide to take the Plunge...

Still don't get why they launch the Mustang in winter

But if you don't like the fl have in mind that 7th gen is already confirmed for 2020
I spend a lot of time in speed shops. The problem is the Camaro is likely making more than the advertised HP right now. The dyno numbers I've seen indicate the Camaro is most likely about 465 already. While the Mustang seams to be dead on at 435. The Mustang needs a big jump just to actually catch the current Camaros power. I for one don't know why Ford just doesn't use the 5.8 instead of the 5.0?

The 5.8L Trinity engine that debuted in the 2013 Shelby GT500 was based on the antiquated 5.4L Condor. Unless Ford has a new 5.8L in the works, they don't really have a V8 architecture -- save for the heavy, two-valve 6.2L truck engine -- upon which to build a larger-displacement engine for the Mustang.

I don't know if you've seen the last terminator movie. But the best quote from that movie was. "Old-Not obsolete."

Front End

At least from this angle the Splitter seems a bit Lower.

I've said it before, but was told they are the same.
Still don't like the new super pointy splitter.

The headlights from this angle, do look a bit more modern.

If they left the old splitter and that shape, and did not put
the angles @ outer edges of spoiler, it might not be half bad.
Everything below the grill is horrible.

Ford is developing a new smaller and lighter 7.0L V8 for the heavy duty truck line to replace the V10. Union agreement confirmed it. But given the displacement if they were to put it into a Mustang it would be labeled a Boss 429 almost certainly.

I am not sure the brought forward upper grille. I kinda like the grilles inline with each other.

I like the pointy splitter. What I don't like (and didn't quite notice) is that the molding for the grill extends so far forward, almost all the way to the edge of the opening. That's kinda weird. Not really noticeable on dark colors, but very obvious on the red.

They need to bring back a 351 Cleveland 4V That would be a sweet setup in a modernized motor with VCT and those cubic inches.

Don't like to say it but the picture of the 18 makes the picture of the 15 look very old and boring.
