Because they would not tell you they had issues getting it into production or without risk of getting their bottom line ruined. Who knows - except the board did "fire" their CEO just recently even after the guy turned Ford profitable.

He wasn't pushing Ford toward the eco/electric/autonomous future as quickly as the board would have liked. The new CEO will do just that.

Driving enjoyment, and having the fastest car possible are two different things -- and the auto is always going to be faster in a straight line assuming no other changes, including the driver. Chevy's own numbers say an auto equipped SS goes 0-60 in 4.0 seconds, and a manual in 4.3 seconds.

If you compare apples to apples, the 10r80 is going to do wonders for the Mustang, and it will hang just fine with an auto Camaro. And even if there is only a 15-20hp increase, with updates to the 6spd I am sure the manual will hang with a manual SS too.

Just adding the 10 speed will get the mustang nearly on par with the camaro with no other upgrades. This will be the biggest saving face if the HP comes in at 455.

Do you know around what date you can start putting in orders for the '18s?

According to her, Order guides should be available for almost all of the 18 model year. (I just checked, no Mustang yet) If they're not up now, give them 2 more weeks. We'll hear about the Mustang stuff though because she said "It'll be a big announcement from Ford." It sucks that I don't find out before all of you do. You would think working at a dealership we would have some sort of inside scoop... That is not the case.

She did tell me that the order guide companion stuff is not okay to share yet, please wait for Ford's announcement.

However, she told me that the timeline for the '18s is for an October 1st startup with first production units being delivered to dealers by mid-end of December depending on the OKTB date. Might make for some good Christmas presents!!
Dealerships are always the last to know in the chain....been that way forever.

I wouldn't be surprised if the order banks opened before full specs are revealed. It's been done before.

At this rate, order banks in the UK will be open before we hear any official power figures!
