Holy cow, it’s hard to believe but the all-new (well kind of) redesigned refined 2010 Ford Mustang will have a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of under $21k. As Ford’s ponycar clicks a few years past it’s 50th anniversary, and with the souring economy, there hasn’t been a deal this good since Microsoft stock back in the 80′s. Ford’s VP of US marketing, Ken Czuba, says this is the best Mustang Ford has ever made, and is the best deal they’ve ever offered. I agree.
This has been the most anticipated Mustang since the 2005 completely new redesign, and while this Mustang looks similar to that style still – it’s largely been upgraded and refined. For an MSRP of $20,995, excluding destination and other frivilous charges like tax (don’t get me started), you get all-speed traction control - AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control system, anti-lock brakes and front and side air bags plus the usual ammeneties you’d come to expect from a stripped down base model car – you know, tires and brake and stuff. This is good new for Ford, aside from the money they might lose selling them this cheap – since the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger cost $1,000 – $2,600 more.
Have no fear, however, if you’ve got big bucks and want to spring for the decked out version. The 2010 Shelby Shelby GT500 convertible runs a cool $51,225 and should put you in contention with the competitions Corvette and Viper. With a GT500 for $50k, + $5k for a smaller supercharger pulley and dyno tune – you should stomp the mess out of either one of those cars while laughing to the bank at the money you saved. Well, it sounds good anyways.
