    Not long ago, we let loose some of the pricing and option details on the refreshed 2010 Ford Mustang, and now with the way the economy is staggering, what better timing could Ford have with the printing of their Mustang window stickers?! This price war is somewhat a throwback to 45 years ago when the Mustang became the crowned king of the pony car wars and has upheld legendary respect ever since. By the numbers, we see the 2010 Mustang coupe will be priced at $20,995 and the Camaro LS is marked at $22,995. Game. The base model Challenger, the SE, will sell for $22,545. Set. A comparable foreign competitor (you know, the one sold by the company that will let us give the car back if we lose our jobs) such as the Hyundai Genesis coupe will start at about $22,000. Match. No matter how it's sliced, the Mustang has the pony car price war won hands down. Even the more aggressive trims are still favorable in cost against the competition: the 2010 Mustang GT will post a sticker of $27,995 against the Camaro SS sticker of $30,995, and the Challenger R/T boasting a price of $30,545. Need we say more? We don't think so, so we'll happily share a few shots of the 2010 Mustang in Dallas from just moments ago. Ford also has something so say, so check out their official Press Release to get the full scoop.

  2. WHile we plan on still buying a 2010 mustang....

    One has to consider the performance numbers of the BASE mustang vs the others in this article.
  3. Other options not shown...just to name a few
    2009 Nissan 370Z - $29,930 - 332hp 3.7L V6 RWD
    2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe - $25,000 - 306 hp 3.8L V6 RWD
    2010 Subaru WRX - $25K - 265hp 2.5L 4 AWD (i know its a sedan/hatch)

    I'm not impressed with the pricing structure comparison. I don't get comparing an anemic V6 from Ford and bare bones options for $21K vs a $22K 210hp 4cyclinder with very good standard options Genisis Coupe. While the competition V6's are blasting 50-80 more hp's and in some cases eclipsing the V8 of their more expensive versions. Whats the better deal a $25K decent optioned Genesis 308HP v6 vs a $28K 315hp Mustang base options. (i know i know its a hyundai, but... you do see my point).

    I just noticed there is no mention that the Camaro is 300hp in its V6 form and a 6 speed manual.
