THAT'S what you get for giving us Piers Morgan. Do it again and see what we ship over next!
I think he's worried about coming back here in case he ends up inside because of the phone tapping scandal with the newspapers when he was editor of The Sun and News of the World . Not a popular bunny with a lot of people .Krispy Kremes and a Mustang that colour , cant take much more .
That colour has already shown up in southern New Mexico. There is one in our little town in Alamogordo.....but it's a GT...
Could maybe get away with it in New Mexico , a colourful , exciting country . But in the U.K I think it would only appeal to the women and the limp wrist fraternity .Great car spoiled . Cant see many driving down to the pub to meet their mates in that without getting ridiculed .
Apparently Ford didn't learn it's lessons from the 70's. The Mustang almost died during that era because Ford tried to change the Mustang's character. They even considered making a Probe based Mustang!!!! Fortunately, the Mustang loyal spoke up and the Mustang is still with us, better (read that as faster and better handling) than ever.
Ford faces the same challenge that Harley faces. Keep up with technology, improve quality, but maintain the vehicle's long established and spot on basic character.
Mustangs are not economy cars; Ford has economy covered with other models. Mustangs have always been about performance, and to me, performance means big low end torque and HP from a V8, not a turbo 4!
Although I own two V-6's, purchased for my daughters to drive to college, gas mileage was not a factor in their purchase (the girls wanted Mustangs and earned them with good grades). I did not, however, consider anything other than a Shelby GT 500 for myself.
And yes, I have owned smaller high-performance cars (GTI's) with 4 cylinder engines, but nothing beats the sound and feel of a V8 when the blower wines and the seat hits you in the back!
Please Ford, don't mess with the Mustang! Save the turbo 4-banger for the Focus.
Last week, news broke that a four-cylinder engine planned for the redesigned 2015 Ford Mustang would not be offered in the U.S.
The claim was made by Edmunds, citing an anonymous source.
Since then, Road & Track has come out with a report that says the opposite, suggesting that the U.S. will be offered a four-cylinder engine on the 2015 Mustang and perhaps not as the base option.
The latest report, once again citing an anonymous source, says the 2015 Mustang will likely retain the current model’s 305-horsepower 3.7-liter V-6 as its base option.
The four-cylinder engine, which will be an enlarged version of the 252-horsepower 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine fitted to the Ford Focus ST, will likely develop well in excess of 300 horsepower, which is why Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] is suggested to be considering adding it as a mid-level option on the 2015 Mustang.
The successor to the current Mustang GT is said to stick with a V-8 for its motivation.
While this scenario seems unlikely, the return of four-cylinder power on the Mustang will certainly be interesting. For the SVO fans out there, let’s hope the engine is in fact offered in the U.S.
