2015 Mustang!

I don't know about you guys, but I'm excited.

I do believe the front is ugly.. too much Fusion blended in, but oh well, you can't have a perfect car!

What say you?

Edit: Yes, that is the car even though the release date is tomorrow.

It looks like a sport coupe version of a Fusion. Not that that's a bad thing. It looks OK, I suppose.

Say me what, bleh. The corporate cheap Aston knock off grill doesn't help.

Well they didn't totally ruin it IMO. I suppose I should read the article, did they finally make the switch to independent rear suspension? Now that they got the live axle workin' great? :-)

I don't see the resemblance. Looks like an updated Mustang with far too much Fusion/Aston styling blended in.

I thought they were going to make a radical change.

If you're going to change something, CHANGE it...
Don't clone what everyone else is doing, or you've done before...
Looks like the same ole thing to me.

Camaro sides:


Charger front end:

I still think you're off, but it doesn't matter as you obviously have your mind made up.

Of course, a couple things you may want to consider:
  • Retro Mustang was out before both the retro Camaro and the retro Charger.
  • What company makes a radical design change to a vehicle that is selling well? That is potentially suicide.

Dude, you got issues if you see Charger in that thing


Pretty sure the Ford has been doing the Mustang-esque design longer than Chevy and Dodge.

Also, 2014 compared to 2015... Looks more current gen Mustang than Camaro.

I would like that in the hatchback design.

Good looking car either way. Would love to have a GT Convertible.

It's all good.
I just wish when they say they're going to change something, change it.
It's ok looking.
I doubt I'd buy any of the three, to be honest.
