2010 mustang a cheap date autoblog celebrates 1 480th mustang post

You didn’t hear it here first. Autoblog reports that the 2010 Ford Mustang will start as low as $21,845 for a V6, with GT V8 power starting at $27,995. As AB points out, that makes the forthcoming Mustang less expensive than Chevy’s Camaro ($22,995 for the V6, $30,995 for the V8) and Dodge’s Challenger( $22,545, $30,545). If you put much stock in the whole MSRP thing that is. Besides, who doesn’t think these pony revivalists won’t have tons of cash on the hood within months of showing up on lots? Then again, these have been trying times for the folks who’s interest in cars begins and ends with styling and horsepower ratings. Long days of photoshopping album covers are clearly taking their toll, and nothing cleanses the Autoblog palate like a good Mustang post. In fact, a quick Google search shows that AB posted 1,480 articles with “mustang” in the title in the last year, and 35 in the last month. For comparison, TTAC logged 31 in the last year. Moral of the story? If you’re curious about whether Ford will survive long enough to offer the inevitable incentives on the 2010 ‘stang of your dreams, you’ve come to the right place.

    Boy, if I cared about the Mustang, I'd be all set! Did you catch the literary aneurism at AB when a Tribune columnist dared to suggest that the 2010 Mustang should be axed in favor of...well, it doesn't matter, does it? If it was between the 2010 Mustang and starving third-world orphans, I'm pretty sure I know what AB would pick. BTW, I love the new format - one condensed, highly-concentrated Autoblog bitch-fest every week or so! No posts about your rivals for a week, and then one containing everything in the last seven days that made us wonder how these schmucks keep getting page hits, let alone free cars. Outstanding! That'll keep the AB-hater-haters at bay, but still give the rest of us an outlet for venting about the stupid shit AB keeps piling on. (The album cover was just...sad) Posts like this give me the strength to keep checking AB. Carry on!

    I doubt many people interested in the base version of the Mustang really care if the suspension is outdated or the engine is relatively weak. People buy V6 'Stangs for looks only

    I've always wanted a Mustang. We had a 65 and an early Cougar when I was a kid. However, every time I drive one I lose interest really fast. The Camaro looks promising - especially if Dongfeng gets GM and starts shipping V6 versions from China for $15k a copy.

    Buying a V6 Mustang is pretty much an admission that you are a tool. I don't like the Camaro's looks, but goddamn, 400 hp. That is hard to resist.
