Looks Like Ford has dropped the ball as far as power goes considering what the camaro and challenger are putting out

TMLFAN 11-17-2008 07:23 PM

Yes I think they should have added more power. We should see a power increase for 2011, hopefully.

83gtragtop 11-17-2008 07:58 PM

Looks great....powers where I thought it would be. Ford wants to sell cars, smarter to release the new model as is and see increase in sales, then when they pitter off release new power train options.

simplexdesign 11-17-2008 08:07 PM

Some of it looks nice..Like the cobra looking front end...The rear fender hip and the new hood.. But the euro tail lights, rice front bumper corner flares and not color matching in between the headlights and grill looks like crap..In fact I think the v6 version looks a lot better..
At the end of the day how many people are going to trade their 05-09 for one of these with the power being the same? Im guessing not many

2010 V6 camaro almost has the GT beat in the HP area.

hirevn 11-17-2008 08:43 PM

Looks like ill be keeping the 08 and continue improving it or trade it off for a camaro. I dont know how they will compete with the v8 camaro (ss version with rs package at 34,000).Hopefully ford will suprise us with "oh yhea,optional 420 hp 5.0" Lmao!

_Slowbra_ 11-17-2008 08:45 PM

looks good....but the power isnt there. The Mustang has become the stepchild of ponycars. With Chevy and Dodge putting out cars with 400+, I am a little disappointed that they couldnt get a little more power out of those 4.6 liters. I mean guys driving 6er Camaros are going to want race V8 Mustangs.....

2011 needs to bring 5.0 Mustangs and 400 Hp, then I'll be happy.

JayRolla 11-17-2008 09:01 PM

WOW power is not there at all. They wont beable to compete with the other cars in its class. Wonder why ford doesnt want to up the power?

A_Drunken_Llama 11-17-2008 09:08 PM

it's only 107 HP less than the Camaro SS.... what am I saying? this sucksssssss :/

GerRod 11-17-2008 09:24 PM

I love the cosmetic changes. However, the power is not enough for me to ditch my supercharged F150. Oh well....

07BLACKGT 11-17-2008 09:32 PM

Look people, we all knew the engine wasn't changing this year. :confused:

Cosmetically, I'm in love like it is 2004 all over again!
Bring on 2011 and at LEAST 350 horses.

EnragedCoconut 11-17-2008 10:02 PM

I'm no expert so all I can speak to is my personal opinion on it.

No change in the engine and i'm really not digging the esthetics....at all. It reminds me of a beemer for some reason....

The slope of the hood and the gril are really what ruins it for me, I think. It lacks that aggressiveness that I see when I look at the front of my baby.

I don't see a 2010 in my future.

Hmm, its better than i thought but idk i hate the new interior and there isnt much of a difference between the 05 and 10s exterior. Gonna have to sleep on this one!

bolivianpimp 11-17-2008 10:23 PM

I definitely think its an upgrade. The interior definitely looks better and i really like the front grill and the little upgrade in body lines. As soon as 2011 comes along with a upgrade in the engine, Im buying one. All the 315 hp = same engine with an intake JUST like the bullit

Couple interesting things:

The 4.6-liter three-valve V-8 inherits the 2008 Bullitt setup, with a cold-air intake box, a strut-tower brace, and 15 more ponies and five pound-feet, for 315 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. Like the Bullitt's, its 3.5-inch exhaust tips are up a half inch in diameter over the outgoing GT's. The torque curve improves with premium (recommended, but not required) fuel. The new intake sucks in air better than the old, open-air system, for a 0.3-second improvement in 0-to-60-mph times on a hot street start. (=Bullet - suspension)

Since the Mustang is now quieter and more refined inside, Ford engineers added a nifty, if artificial, induction sound tube that runs off the cold-air induction box, through the firewall and into the cockpit. It opens to the left of the driver's dead pedal, so you can better enjoy the engine's woffle (this has me scratching my head)

Ford claims the Mustang is the most owner-customized car sold in the U.S. Ford Racing will offer a dealer-installed supercharger that boosts power past 400 horses and preserves the Mustang's factory warranty. (depend on cost for this option, this could be what the doctor ordered for the camaro ss blues)

Traction control and the Advance Trac electronic stability-control system will come standard, offering full-on/full-off, and performance modes. Ford says you can perform burnouts in the full-on mode (good news to someone who drives it year round in ohio)

I will be getting a 2011 after my 05 is payed off in 2010

GeritGoul 11-17-2008 10:33 PM

interior still the same, sad sad..and ill add something new to the thread, NO POWER comparison with the camaro!!

lunarweasel 11-17-2008 10:45 PM

Why no direct injection 6? WTF. No engineering required, it already exists for the Fusion ( or is it just that Lincoln?, regardless the top of the line 6 for the Fusion has 50 more HP).... No wonder they need a bailout. Jesus.

Really let down.

AH ha!
There is the answer for the Camaro.
Now, I have a feeling we won't be getting anything new in 2011 as far as engines go. They should have the supercharger a FACTORY option instead of dealer option.

Here are some bad comparison pictures I threw together a few minutes ago. I'm going to try and take pictures tomorrow of the exact angles to match the 2010 pictures.

I gotta say, I like the outgoing model better. As far as power goes, anyone expecting ford to throw 400hp into the GT needs to wake up. Ford has always been successful with the mustang because people can afford the insurance AND the note. Not one or the other. The mustang will continue to outsell all other pony cars despite its lower power out the gate. If you're hungry for HP, you just gotta do it yourself. It didn't cost me the price difference between my car and a new Camaro SS to get well over 500hp.
