2005 Mustangs are on their way!

Ford worker Christina Slomba building the 2005 Mustang.

The 2005 Mustangs are being manufactured as you read this, and will be in Ford dealerships in a matter of weeks. There are already some 25,000 advanced orders by Mustang lovers around the country.

Worker puts finishing touches on the new Mustang.

Amazing Motor Girls predict that this generation of Mustang will have the same, if not greater, impact on the imaginations of car buyers (and Ford sales figures) as the first Mustang did back in 1964. It's also going to push retro design, not just in cars, but in other products, further into public consciousness.

The one fly in the ointment: Oil prices hit $50 a barrel this morning - that may impact buyers from purchasing the muscle car (300-hp, 24-valve MOD V-8 or 200-hp SOHC V-6 engine.) - or it may not, because Mustang-lovers are a breed of car owners indifferent to the "trivialities" of gasoline prices.

You're right about the mileage.
The V8 Mustang is a legend, but the V6 is the one that brings in the money.
They always sell way more of these. And a 4.0Liter (200hp) is huge for a V6.
Cadillac's V8s are 4.0. With over 300hp!
And Honda gets 200 hp out of a 2.0Liter engine.
I can't imagine that thing getting great mileage. I mean in real life, not the BS figures Ford will put on the window...
