I like it all except the new nose. :/

I think it might be that the rest of the bumper and what not doesn't look as beefy as I am used to when seeing the bigger nose on the GT500...

I just bought a 2013 GT. Pick up tomorrow. I thought all mustang people would at minimum say at least something nice to a fellow mustanger.
I would expect this from a camero person. I sure hope I don't go to a cruise night with other mustanger's there and they walk up to me and say,
YOUR CAR IS GROSS.

I guess others feelings are not an agenda to some.
oh well, I like all mustangs. I have owned a 1968, 2011, and now 2013.
My son had a 1999. I liked them all.

I have a 2012 and I like the 2013 a lot.


In reality, it's not like much has changed too much. The front end Is basically a 2010-12 shelby with hids and the rear has tinted tails

He wasn't saying anything bad to anyone. The OP was asking what the opinions are on the 2013 and he gave a truthful answer, nothing wrong with that at all. I doubt anyone would walk up to you and say your car is gross (unless they happen to be jealous).

Anywho, I like the 2013. Not too crazy on the taillights but thats just me nitpicking. I know I am way in the minority on this but I just love the Gotta Have it Green they came out with (stripes are required for me though) and have seriously thought about just saving up and trading in for one.

You will get generally this response from 2010-12 owners that have the ugly tail lights (IMO). I personally think that Ford hit a home run with the 2013 refreshing. I especially like the rear end now, and I would purchase 2013-style tail lights for my 2008 GT in a heartbeat!

I saw a car chase on this week's Alcatraz TV show and I really like every angle (even the front) of the new Mustang. The front was the only part of the new Mustang I was undecided about - but I love it!

Yeah, I like it. Ford cleaned up a few areas needing attention, and did a good job. They knew the rear end was the real issue. But, the front even looks better too, even if it is the GT 500 look alike.

That's unfortunate since you have a 2012. The differences between the 12 and 13 are very minor so, if you really think the 2013 is gross you may want to rethink your purchase.

I have to agree with the previous poster that the 2010-12 front end looks more aggressive. Although I understand why Ford changed their front end, and that was to improve aerodynamics. I miss the power dome, but again, I think Ford wanted their car to be more functional. Looks great overall, hell its a Mustang! But Im still loving my 2012 even more.

is a blunt nose like that more aerodynamic? I would think it's worse, look at the aero, squashed nose ramping up is a good thing.. although we need a bit more squishy nose going on...

I think it looks like a charger, which i dislike, also kind of like an Evo.. also not good.

I think the rear-end on the 2012 is ugly, I don't like it. but the rest of the car I like. on the 2013 i think they improved the rear, but still not good, and the front looks worse. maybe with the 2015's and the new chassis they'll completely revolutionize the mustang, make it look sort of like an exotic car(lambo, ferrari, GT40).. that'd be pretty sweet. The throw back nostalgia is cool... but it would be cooler to see something completely different on the road.

Oh no, I would doubt that anyone would call your car "gross" or "ugly". Honestly, I saw the 2013 at the dealership today, and it didn't look to bad, not to much different from the 2012.

I wish you luck on your new 2013 GT sir. Post up some pictures on here and let us see your new Stang.

Good Luck

i like the taillights on mine theres no problems with them at all

the taillights on the newer ones look pretty sick but also might be a little too out there for some people, i guess ford is trying to either move away from retro or mix modern with retro so much that it creates something interesting

I personally never ran into another Mustang enthusiast that put down someone else's mustang based on the year it was produced. What you see here is what I call constructive criticism, not put downs. I think overall everyone here loves the car. Ford at one time nearly destroyed the Mustang back in the 90's and when the Mustang purists complained and wrote to Ford, Ford listened. And that's how the Ford Probe was born and the Mustang continued to live another day.

I had a chance to see the 2013 in person while picking up my 2012 RS1, and quite honestly, it didn't look bad. In person, the changes aren't too different. I really like the track pack option, and the new center screen is really nice.

All in all, its essentially the same as the 2011-2012 Mustang's, with just a bit of refinement and changes, but in the end, its still a 5.0, and we still eat M3's alike

Just picked up my 2013 convertible yesterday. Love the way it looks, even the new rear tail treatment, but one problem is immediately clear. The black plastic between the sequential tail lights, and the tail lights themselves are a powerful electrostatic dust magnet! To keep them looking good will require constant wiping, which is not on my "to do" list.
