    That's such a nice car, even with the V-6 :-) I just checked and they're already selling 2012???

    This explains the barrage of Mustang commercials on TV. Better to move them with advertising than with rebates.

  • Gumby Posted: 4/4/2011 11:54am PDT

    Are they going to put EcoBoost 4cyl to replace V6 engines in the future?

    a friend of mine had to wait 4 months for the delivery of his v6 Mustang ... it doesn't make sense

  • Kurt Posted: 4/4/2011 12:35pm PDT

    Ruggles, I noticed that, too. Ford is really hyping the V6 it seems.
    Gumby, I'm not sure. There was allegedly a V6 EcoBoost 'Stang in the works, but that made no sense to me. The EcoBoost V6 is heavier than the Coyote V8, and gets the same fuel economy.
    io, was his V6 Mustang a special order? Those can take time to build and deliver. How long ago did your friend buy the car?

    I LOVE Mustangs and have owned 2.
    THIS IS A STYLING PROBLEM -- the rear of the car looks like a 70's Toyota Celica -- "a girl car".
    The rest is OK, but the previous one was better looking -- the new interior is nice.
    Ford says the 50th Anniversary model, in 3 years, is a stunner, but the Stang needs a fast refresh

    Gas is nearing 4.00 a ggallon .Thast may be 1 reason for the overstock.

  • io Posted: 4/4/2011 3:22pm PDT

    @ Kurt he placed the order in September; received the car in January (BC, Canada)
    the car was a convertible with no special options
    @Ron the V6 Mustang quite good on gas for the amount of power it delivers

    I can't agree it's a styling problem. The car looks excellent and has received rave reviews. I particularly like the sequential indicators. Like any production schedule it's a bit like stopping an oil tanker, when demand moves. I agree that it is better to promote the car with advertising than apply rebates - maybe they can offer a special "his and hers" deal? The Mustang is one of America's better looking cars and is distinctly American in nature - and not a re-constituted Japanese or Euro product.

    io, the special order is why it took so long. Convertibles typically come loaded with options.

    "The automaker has nearly double the amount of V-6 and V-8 Mustangs in inventory than it considers ideal..."
    Dude -- learn some simple grammar --
    It should be nearly double the amount....that it considers ideal.

    If they have to be dragged,complaining all the way, the crmakers are finally having to pay more than lip service to better gas mileage. Currently, hybrids seem to be the only answer.

  • Kurt Posted: 4/9/2011 12:15pm PDT

    Archie1954, I just wish we had alternatives other than hybrids. Despite what the domestic manufacturers claim, Americans would buy clean diesels if companies offered them.
