    Nothing concrete as of yet regarding anything new. You can surely count on the 3v 4.6 or a close derivative.

    I think it will be a 350hp version of the current 3v 4.6.

    SRT8 cars are very powerful but also very heavy. You will have more fun in a Mustang and they will all ways be faster if you build them up equally in horse power because of the weight. Just my $.02

    Not worried about all out performance anymore. And 4 doors would be nice for our growing family. I don't except a Mustang site to side with switching from Ford... Hell... I never thought I would. Maybe Ford should bring over the Falcon XR from AU to keep those that need a bigger car, and still want decent all around performance.

    The R/T or SRT8 charger is a great family muscle car. You could always go with the new challenger. They are supposed to have a big back seat for a 2 door car. I still think a 350hp mustang with 4.10 gears has enough power to keep up with a 400hp Challenger, Charger or Camaro.

    NO... way to expensive and still a small bore..


    We need the NEW engine.. hopefully for will give it to us.


    Give us the boss... Give us the boss... . give us the boss.. down with small bore modulars.. down with small bore modulars...


    Ok everybody chant with me.. :rlaugh:

    If the new motor is not in the 2010 I give up.. I will just buy a used mustang then, I am not spending 25k+ of my hard earned money on another 3.55 bore modular mustang.

    I thought I read somewhere that 2010 was supposed to retain the same 4.6 we have now, but for 2011 they are bumping it to a 400 hp version of the 5 liter.

    From what I've heard the new 5.0 will be DOHC like the cammer.

    No doubt. Starting to see a few on the road around here. Very sharp. May very well be my next car as well. I really need a 4-door for my job, but I'll be damned if I'm getting a FWD CamCord sedan. Maybe Ford will bring in the Aussie Falcon as suggested by PoopDawg
