When it comes to the Black Accent package, Ford is now forcing you to purchase the black painted roof unlike the previous years. The design of the black rims look good. Better than the 2017 version in my opinion

Yea, I don't really get the black painted roof. It doesn't necessarily look bad in some colors, but I feel like it is trying to go for the look of a carbon fiber roof like an M3, but not really.

If I wanted a black roof I would have bought a black car.

I'm not happy that there's no power ratings, even though Ford tends to overstate them, and be the ONLY manufacturer to rate its performance vehicles on 93 fuel,hence the over-rated power, when everyone else is rated at 91 fuel. So tobe realistic to the competition, deduct 10-12 hp & tq from the release numbers for real world comparison. Plus, with the added 45-60 lbs with new standard features, normally found on premium models, is Ford going for a heavy weight record? We want a lighter, more nimble car not a barge for boulevard cruising. And are the Dull, Dim DRL LED's going to be addressed at some point? The front of the car is so, lifeless. Nobody to date has made an effort to "brighten" this car's weakness, its dim Almost to skinny, tri-bar DRL's. I suspect Ford will be playing catch up with Camaro yet again, with 440 hp on 91 fuel. It is currently 425 hp. And 300 hp in ecostang. The weight increase will finally push a base mustang gt to 2009 GT500 weight, at 3825 lbs. My 2013 GT stick was 3622 lbs full fluids on the scale. Add me in and it was 3802 lbs. I wish Ford would focus on their customers and not waste billions of $$ on autonomous vehicles and Artificial Intelligence. This is the new world order coming to fruition.

I gladly take the 10hp hit by being able to run 87 octane fuel. Running 91 octane is likely only a 2-3 hp degradation. You have to remember that the camaro demands premium fuel while the mustang allows it's owners a choice. I love having the option.

Keep in mind too, the S550 mustang has been killing it in sales since day one. Judging by sales, Ford gave it's customers exactly what they wanted. Without the S550, I would still be looking at used foxbodys or late 60's mustangs.

I tell you what I don't want. I don't want a cramped interior, tiny trunk opening and shit visibility to save 100lbs of weight...nor would I want a significant price increase to offset said weight.

Yep, same here, just adds a nice overall look to it in my opinion. Everybody has their likes, dislikes and preferences, and that just adds variety to the world.

Your spot on. Albeit it's unfortunate the black painted roof costs so much. The contrast with most of the colors looks awesome. When you see one in the real it's a real head turner. The ruby red with black roof is a stunner. To bad they're making it part of the package as I don't want a lot of them running around as there will be too many which will take away from the uniquness

I'll post pictures when I get mine finished still adding a few parts.

Cheers!!

I have not seen it in person, but the pictures look like the color of a Dr. Pepper can, which is a color I like, but doesn't seem right on a Mustang. Except the convertible for some reason. That looks pretty good.

15-17 Mustang GT is 435hp, Ecoboost is 310hp. 20hp bump for the 18+ is not impossible, but yeah they should use a lighter weight frame like the new f-150.
