    I think this is wonderful news for Mustang sales. Mustang has gotten all kinds of advertising support for a relatively small volume car. In the meantime, Fusion has gotten almost no support, therefore, they are killing my favorite family car a 2017 Ford Fusion Sport. Good bye Ford. Hello GM, Mercedes, BMW, or Toyota. I hate to say it, but never another Ford.

    I’m glad the mustang is doing so well right now. It’s a beautiful car and it deserves all the credit and praise that it is receiving. However, I must say that it is still a second-rate car and it needs a lot more to make it better. Basically the Mustang GT should have options to include most of the stuff from the upcoming GT350 & GT500 including a better 10-speed auto, GT350 and GT500 suspension bits and brakes, the GT350 wheel and tire package, the new GT350 rear spoiler, better Recaro seats, alcantara steering wheel, standard digital 12″ dash, a larger infotainment screen with the B&O stereo system with better subwoofers and amplifiers, GT350 style exhaust manifolds, (the exhaust system on the GT with the active modes is near perfect but the new GT500 sounds better), the GT350 intake manifold, throttle body and cold air intake, the GT350 style heads and cams for cross-plane crank applications, a more premium interior and a few other things.
    Other than that, Ford’s car lineup sucked anyway. The fusion was a complete turd, the fiesta was pointless, the focus was okay only if you had an ST or RS and the Taurus wasn’t all that hot either. Honestly if ford brought their FPV cars up from Australia and put them on the S550 or upcoming S650 chassis then yeah we could have had some good Ford cars up here. Another thing ford should do is put the 5.0 in the explorer with the new rear-wheel drive based chassis and call it a day. Ford is way too conservative to be honest and they focus to much on wanting to be a knock-off low-budget euro car.
