    sadly this is true.

    ford needs to realize they need to stay on the CUSP of technology and do their best to stay current with trends. Make partnerships with Apple, Satellite companies, etc etc etc to stay out.

    Put in little features that make a big difference in someones experience while driving the car, IE, front windows auto up and auto down. manual transmission options, cars that have a good stance and great looking wheel and tire combo's.. The new mustang is fucking garbage. Whoever said that wheel and tire combo was ok, needs to be fired. It looks terrible. A GT mustang with a wheel and tire combo like this? REALLY?Hideous!

    Ford needs to offer cars with a soul.

    The anemic Fusion has none.

    Though a turbocharged 300hp one with a 6spd, cool wheels and a good stance, leather interior and a nice stereo does.. :)

    Ford sells the mustang with 17" wheels (and 16" on the v6) for plenty of reasons. Mainly that they are cheap, and that 17" tires are cheap as hell. They also offer better acceleration and fuel economy over larger wheels. And I don't know why you are so upset about that when they have 4-5 different optional 18" wheels.

    I went from the stock 17s pictured to the 18" fanblade wheels, and while it does look a shitload better, it makes a noticeable seat of the pants difference in acceleration.

    maybe because the car looks terrible on them? and the stance and wheel tire gap is disgusting. its a GT mustang! not a goddam Ford Taurus. See just about any Audi vehicle for correct stock stance examples :)

    i dunno.. post them for me :o most mustangs i see look terrible. in multiple states, even texas :o :o

    18" tires aren't that much more than a 17"..

    Example :o

    Yes, yes they are - compared to the LSx motors.

    And I'm a ford person, I have a 347w and 393c... but have no interest in the new Fords because GM have them beat.
