Default What do you think about the weight of the 2015 Mustang?

Do you think that the 2015 Ford Mustang will actually be 200-300lbs heavier?

Yes, I do. It's really sad how me make cars heavier and heavier with added safety features, but yet we do nothing about the real problem, which is bad drivers.

The fed wants cars to get better gas mileage and weight plays a key role in mpg.

WHat do I think?

I think we need to wait for confirmation of the real specs. Even the final HP ratings haven't been revealed yet.

Ford will probably rate it at 450, I bet it makes 420 at the wheels.

i too am in the camp of we just need to wait for the official Ford numbers. And since when have manufacturers rated their HP at the wheels? You want to compare apples to apples on that, you need to compare the same type of numbers.

moosestang what's the best balance between making cars safer and getting a better mileage? I am wondering if withing 50 years all performance cars will be EVs? Corvette C8 may be hybrid.

???? I said they will rate it at 450. I said I BET it puts down 420rwhp. How did you get manufacturers rating their hp at the wheels from my post?

I guess it depends on the person. as you can see from my sig, I'm not afraid to go without a full roll cage and air bags all around. big brother wants to make sure nobody dies, but you are all going to die some time. I don't understand why we need harsher crush standards for roofs? For the off chance that some idiots rolls their car 20 times?

I would not want to try and design a light weight performance car in the US. We have too many stupid federal regulations for cars, with more on the way.

I personally would like to buy a high performance 3 wheeled car like the scorpion p6, but something with a roof for when it rains. I'd love to see an ariel atom type car sold in the us, but it's impossible to build such a car here. Put 3 wheels on it and it gets classified as a motorcycle and you can get around all the federal BS.

Still not 4685lbs. which makes me happy

Weight is not a bad thing, for a sedan it makes it feel solid, like a tank.

For something like a coupe.. not so cool!
