I am looking to trade in my daily driver Focus ST on a 15 Mustang Ecoboost Premium.
The new design really tickles my fancy and a 310HP turbo 4 that gets 30+ mpg is pretty nice. Plus with just a tune the car is in the 12's, add an exhaust, intake and drag radials the car is in the 11's.
Ugh, the new Mustang is horribly ugly.
I mean, looks are subjective, but I just think its a particularly bad looking car - its like Ford decided the Fusion needed a coupe version, they took all of the muscle and aggression out of it.
My hometown Ford shop has an Ecoboost Stang and I have looked it all over, up and down, and I just don't understand how anyone thinks that is nice styling.
I actually liked the last generation of Mustang a lot, and the Focus ST still turns my head every time I see one.
I guess beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. I think the car is gorgeous and much more aggressive looking with the fender bulges over the wheels than the previous gen car. I don't think there is anything Fusion looking about it. The upper and lower grill are all Mustang and the head lights are a huge improvement over the 12-14. Again the rear filler panel and tail lights are all Mustang and the air splitter below the bumper gives the back end a super car look.
The only thing they could do to improve the looks is to use the Shelby GT350 nose on the car.
I think with all the accolades the car is getting for its styling you are a minority.
