    Original Post:

    Just saw a post that the GT500 will be officially revealed at NAIAS on 1/14/19. Not sure of the accuracy of the claim, but I sure do hope it is accurate so we can finally get some solid numbers on this thing.

    Saw a picture of an original GT500 displayed with that date under it. Seems valid to me.

    At least we have an actual public reveal date. I wonder how much info Ford Performance will actually share or will they keep teasing things like power numbers until closer to production.

    May be a 2019 release date for a 2020 year model still... Probably going to be a late 2019 order opening if it does happen to be a 2019 release.

    Good question, I would suspect they have some info, such as power figures and possibly some performance metrics. I bet price will be given later in the year

    I was told a while back... by someone... that they are going to hit showrooms next year.

    So unless that's changed, you might be able to get yours just in time for winter lol.

    Basically the same timeline as the GT350. No surprises if that's accurate.

    Makes me wonder if they're going to pull a full GT350 and have a super limited 2019 or 2020 year model run to get the car out there for testing/review before the "official" production run starts; more or less like they did in 2015 with the GT350.

    Well that's one way the GT350 and GT500 could be available at the same time. Unless they plan for the GT350 to be available again in 2020.

    They'll still be allocated as with '18 and '19 GT350's. You won't be able to just go into a dealership and get one. So "official" production run, even in quotes is senseless. This is no different than previous GT500's as well. Sometimes they were up, sometimes down as well.

    With an official reveal date what does that mean in terms of securing one, ordering one, putting a deposit on one? My dealer seems kinda wishy washy about the hole deal as i have shown great interest but no action has been done. Albeit I don't have a strong relationship with them, but have told them i want the first one they get. When should i press , and when can they 'officially' take my deposit/order/etc. I know every dealer works different but in general....

    They can "officially" take a deposit whenever they like. The fact that they are reluctant to tell you that they will sell you one is due to 1 - they don't know if they will get any and 2 - they know they want to make as much as possible from someone willing to pay an ADM.
