    Lol. May as well just say "10 out of 10 2015-2017 owners said they think the 15-17 looks better. Experts agree!"

    I'm one of those that sometimes dislikes the new styles when they first come out. I always liked the 2015+ from the rear, but the front took a while to grow on me.

    I didn't like the 2018 initially either, but it's grown on me. It really is very similar to the 2015+ style.

    I also love when people try using the initial leaked photo to compare... it was such an unflattering angle that Ford never even ended up using it for any promotional content. But it's almost like they're admitting that they've only been looking at that picture for the past 2 years and have been blocking their eyes to any other pictures because they're afraid they'll like it too much and regret not buying one LMAO

    Whoever in Ford signed off on this marketing material for the 18, with its drowsy look and washed out yellow should be fired

    I liked my 15 GT when I had it and like my 18 GT now. What I really like about my 18 GT over my 15 GT is the extra power, A10 trans, 3:55 gears and Magneride. Car totally screams.

    Wow. You definitely have a gift for this. And they may be what the car looks like.

    Unfortunately, if this is indeed the direction ford has taken, I think it’s a backward step. The 15-17 was very nice. It looked like a modern mustang with s touch of exotic. The 18 added some angles and aggression, which interrupted the flow of the previous lines, but still looked good in its own right. This however, just seems like it is change for the sake of change. The car should get better looking. Not worse. It’s not as bad as the 19 camaro refresh, but it’s not a positive move. Ford can make gorgeous mustangs. The 500, 350, and Bullitt come to mind. If I Hope they work as hard to give the GT some aesthetic love.

    I think ford would have done better using the lower bumper you mocked up. Looks more like it belongs.

    I wish they would get rid of that front cap and extend the front center of the hood on down over the grille. Like the sn95s, but appropriate for the new style. That has always bugged me about the s550.

    Same. But they can’t. It’s part of pedestrian safety and crash ratings nowadays. There’s a reason for that design, but it serves a purpose. The sn95 would hit a pedestrian and they’d survive the soft bumper cover only to be eviscerated by the steel hood. The newer cars have a “cushion” before the hood. The c8 for example has a gigantic area for this in the front. The challenger is done super simply and looks just like you describe. A cap. The camaros makes it’s hood look like a toilet bowl lid. The Mustangs isn’t that bad. But it will remain similar to that.

    Some people think Danny Devito is hot and some think Brad Pitt is ugly. No one's right and no ones wrong it's all personal taste. 15-17 18-19 blah blah. Maybe the Fusions all look like mustangs . HU HU ever think of that? LOL. I would care mre to know if they are gonna make any meaningful changes to the actual cars mechanics. I personally couldn't care less about a front bumper cover. It is just ford putty lipstick on it and marking up the MSRP.

    while that’s true to some degreee, in general, there are universal standards. People the world over have at least some overlap on beauty standards. There are some outliers, but that indicates rarity. So MOST people would indicate Brad Pitt as a handsome dude or Nicole sherzinger as an attractive chick. There are some who don’t think either is attractive. But most do. So that’s what is aimed for in creating an aesthetic product - who the “most” are in your target demographic. So when someone says a car is beautiful, in general, everyone knows what they are talking about. Same thing for an ugly car. Once in a while you have some that are hard to quantify. The 6 gen Camaro for example - deemed a “hot” car by msny. But a total barf bag to just as msny others. Meanwhile, you have the mustsng GT, which was conservatively style out of the gate, but nearly everyone thought it was attractive with some sling it gorgeous and others calling it only decent. But rarely called ugly. So Ford did the better job of creating a car that is universally understood as being beautiful.

    Thanks for the perspective. I didn’t know. I always figured it was a cost issue to allow them to make cheap changes to the front of the car, but then that didn’t make any sense because they always end up changing the hood anyway. And the fenders. So your explanation makes the most sense.
