I reckon they would be silly not to compete with the GT86 in terms of price. Ford must realise that.

I've been looking on the US site to get an idea of price comparison and the Mustang starts around the same price as a Focus ST.

 

I realise the V6 is the cheapest option in the states (cheaper than the ecoboost) and is not coming to the UK, but I don't think it is unreasonable to actually see the UK mustang starting at around 25K.

I wonder when they will announce the pricing seeing as we have a while to wait for it yet anyway!

Well it is going to be available from April 2014 in the states, so we can at least get to see how much the ecoboost model is compared to others in the range.

 

It will give us an educated guess, but I get the feeling we may get ripped off in the UK. It won't help that it sounds like every 'stang will be built state side and have to be shipped over.

When they say it will be "to go on sale in Europe" does that translate as "only available in left hand drive" or will they be making them with the steering wheel on the correct side for us Limeys?  :unsure:

I already know I want one. If they can squeeze (at least the base model) in under £30k, I will seriously consider getting one.

 

I think the Ecoboost will just be on £ 30k or there abouts for the base model and perhaps £ 38k for the 5.0

 

What is frustrating, is that currently, even with VAT a Mustang starts under 20k in the states. I realise there will be import costs (as it sounds like they are going to build all Mustang's stateside?), but still, it doesn't seem unreasonable to get it under 30k over here.

 

I own two Mustangs, one of which i Imported myself last year, to work out a comparison, if you just ignore shipping from USA and Light conversions etc, so just work only on price if a Mustang in the usa is 30,000  USD that roughly equates to £ 20,000 then our government add a 10% duty ( same for ford Uk) so that's now £ 22,000 then there's the dreaded VAT so that's now £ 26,400 So I guess if we take it for now that the Mustang will be built in USA factor then ford still have these figures to pay plus the shipping from the factory to the port then the shipping across the Atlantic , then the shipping to dealer plus the warranty and plus our lovely first year car tax then you can see how £ 30k makes sense

 

Otherwise they are entering German Coupe territory which I don't think is a good idea. They need to aim for at or just above GT86/BRZ and TT country imo.

 

People may say the 2.3L Ecoboost is not a mustang engine, but I think it is more than enough in the UK, and would make it viable as a daily driver (yes please  :D )

 

Yes the current US model is also available with a V6 that gives 300HP normally aspirated so the Ecoboost should give a very similar drive

If they its anything like the 120ps 1.0 engine fiesta vs its prior 1.6 normally aspirated engine the drive will be much better! only you wont get the sound track of a V6 :(

I drove the 300hp V6 out in California last year and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Lovely and smooth with a nice raspy soundtrack, Don't think having a turbo mustang would be too much of an issue though! :D

I think the GT (v8) May bring me back to the ford club.. Such a good looking car
Any ideas of convertible pricing compared with coupe/fastback
