This car's a home run. The price is right; the styling's retro without being silly... great job.

1. Its not the Vulcan V6, its a 4.0L SOHC which has been featured in the Explorer & Ranger.

2. Dont judge the interior from pics on the net just yet. I have sat in one and have watched one being drven very hard on a road course, it should be a much better platofmr than the current one, even if it is steel.

3. WTF wants a live axle in a car mostly designed for people who like to drag race? You know how the 99+ Cobra's wheelhop like crazy? Well the standard GT doesnt, and that makes the rear end more durable. It is a new torque arm setup that should definitely help with suspension control in bumpy corners.

Nov. issue of Motor Trend tested a GT automatic and it ran a 5.1 sec 0-60 and a quarter in 13.6 at 99. They also expected the manual to run a 4.8-4.9 to 60. The 05 GT is supposedly putting down 275 rwhp, which means Ford underrated the car by roughly 25 hp.

Find the numbers a little hard to believe, the trap seems low for 13.6 too.

Hot Drives

We've been out driving and testing next year's newest in.
Here's the scoop on 14 new cars, trucks, and sport/utilities you absolutely must know about.

Ford Mustang GT

Old Glory: America's favorit pponycar ears back its stripes

by Frank Markus


Only in America could an econobox in fancy dress named for a wild horse become the must-have machine of an entire generation. Where else could a musclecar's sales rise as its powertrain and chassis were emasculated (mid-1970's)? And in what other land could a manufacture lie about a car's engine size in bright chrome numerals for 14 years and even fudge power output a couple times along the way without sales tanking?

Nevertheless, two and a half decades, two Corvettes, and five presidents later, Ford has finally done the honorable thing and foaled a bran-new pony. It showed it off, talked about it, and at last tossed us the keys for a chaperoned ride across Michigan to Gingerman Raceway. But mere subjective impressions gleaned on a carefully orchestrated launch seemed like a bun without the beef, so we managed to lasso a stray 'Stang and hook it to our gear for an exclusive first test.

Is this Mustang worthy of the loyalty the brand has always enjoyed?

A quantum improvement is noticeable from 10 feet away, and it's not just the fab retro/modern styling. All the panel gaps, surface alignment, and detailing on these salable early preproduction cars look Japan right and orderly. Interior craftsmanship in similarly first-rate, with real aluminum on the steering wheel and dash (on cars with optional appearance package) and a chic, woven headliner.

A higher beltline and narrower windows conspire with a proper bucket seat and heck-'n'-toe pedals to make the new Mustang cockpit feel sportier, though the car stands an inch taller and the seat is a half-inch higher off the ground. Shorter folks may find themselves banging their funny bone into the console lid while shifting the short stick, which was moved aft this year. Everyone will notice the dead pedal is tipped forward at an awkward angle that doesn't match that of the accelerator. The rear seats accommodate sub-six-footers reasonably well, but they'll have to hold their own lattes- Ford neglected to mold a pair of cup holders into the back of the center console.

After just a few Michigan potholes, one wonders if Ford's modest structural improvements figures are overly conservative. The body feels snare-drum tight, attenuating impacts instantly. The extra rigidity coupled with the revised suspension allowed Ford to tighten up the shock valving and roll control without ruining the ride, which is slightly busy but never uncomfortably harsh. Bend the GT into a set of esse and two more contrast between new and old come into focus: The seats actually restrain the occupants so the steering wheel rim and grab handles don't have to, and the steering responds way more quickly. The ratio is actually a fraction slower (15.7:1 vrs 15.0:1), but there's so much less slop just off center that it feels more precise and nimble. And the steering feel is free of the increasingly unwelcome electronic tailoring of the ratio or effort.

Dump the clutch at half-throttle, and the Mustang GT paints two beautiful, unbroken black stripes-even with the traction control on. The system can tell drag racing from snow slippage and stands aside to prevent the indignation of an electronically aborted stoplight stampede. This year the system is also tuned to permit a bit of wheelspin-induced oversteer when driving aggressively on dry pavement. You'll want to switch the traction control off to wring the most out of this chassis on a closed track, but when switched on for responsible public-road driving, the extra latitude of the system affords is welcome.

At the racetrack, the Mustang truly showed us what it's made of-and that is to say, slightly lesser stuff than similarly priced sport cars like the 350Z and RX-8. Oh , the lusty V-8 pulls stronger out of every corner, but the car carries more weight over its (all-season) front tires, so it pushes more than those cars and seems less eager to rotate without brutish steering and throttle inputs. And while MarcPherson struts can be made to work magic on a Barvarian budge, this humble horse falls short of world-class chassis poise in bumpy turns, where the front end chatters a bit and the heavy hardware out back can be felt moving around more than one would like. The GT's larger four-wheel-disc brakes boast 18 percent-more swept area and feel terrific on the road, but two hard laps at the track caused them to fade disconcertingly. All that siad, the new car felt quicker and easier to pivot smoothly around the track than its glue-factory-bound predecessor, and most of these issues fade in importance once you drive off the track.

Priced around $25,000 to start, with acceleration and reasonable if not world-class handling, this new pony's blend of sytle, space, and speed seem as captivating as the original Mustang's. Chevy, the world expects a commensurate Camaro.

Here's an insteresting note. The mustang has 267 bhp @ 5275 and 283 lbs-ft @ 4350 at the wheels. (NOT CRANK - EDIT)

Another side box, THE IMPORTANT ONE!

Exclusive First Track Test

We've got the numbers...and they're good

Don't ask us how, but we had our way with a 2005 Mustang GT five-speed automtaic just long enough to gather real test numbers and send this pony back to the barn wet. To say we're please with the results would be like saying it'd be cool to have Jay Leno's garage keys for a day.

Here's the deal from our man behind the wheel: From a stop, the 2005 GT launches with unexpected ferocity at under two seconds to 30 mph. Normaly, this king of urgent getaway is reserved for cars with clutch pedals and DIY gear boxes. Using a brake-torquing technique at over 2000rpm, the new Pirelli tires favor a liberal amount of wheelspin, easily modulated with the throttle. The P Zero Neros hook up more readily than the Goodyear Eagles on previous Mustangs, which tend to alternately spin in vain or bog-'n'-go depending on launch rpm. The new engine revs quickly pas the indicated 6000 rpm readline and shifts just shy of the "real" 6200 limit. First, second, and third gearsl are tightly spaced and snap off upshifts nearly as rapidly as a Mercedes AMG SpeedShift automtaic. Forth and fifth gears, however, are performance-stinking black holes slowing hte otherwise energetic acceleration curve.

The 2005 GT is quicker than all but the current supercharged SVT Cobra, and, even so, only by a 0.2 to 0.3 second margin. With a 5.1 second run to 60 mph, the new Mustang outruns a compareable 1999-2004 GT four-speed automatic by nearly a full second. A same-gen five-speed manual GT managed only a 5.4 0-60 , and an automatic Mach 1 mustered a 5.6 second best. Similar story in the quter mile: THe new car's 13.6 second time is about half to a full second better. It's 99.9 mph trap speed is just shjy where most current-gen Mustangs run. We suspect the new car's deep, high-fuel-milage fourth and fifth gears are to blame.

What would a manual trans GT be good for? Estimates on automatic-to-stick-shift conversion factors vary, but this auto's close 1-2-3 gearing keeps the engien boiling, so the difference may not be as much as you think. It's safe tos ay a self-shifting GT is a sub five second runner, likely in the 4.8-4.9 second range.

In the salom, the new Mustang feels altogether more precise, predictable, and stable than the car it replaces. The firmer platform is better suited to allowing hte suspensions and tires to do thier jobs more effectively. Where the old car slides as a whole past each cone (unpredictably at that), the 2005 bites hard on intial turn-in, transfers weight in the blink of an eye, and manages rear roll-steer better. Just a hint of opposite-direction wheel input brings the rear end back in line with an authoritative snap ready for the next cone. The best run was over 66 mph, better than any previous Mustang except the race-ready Cobra R of 2000. In typical Mustang fashion, the new car lapses into terminal understeer in the slower-speed skidpad test, but still managed a Cobra like 0.84g orbit.

In case you're wondering how the new Mustang stacks up agaisnt the GTO: The American pony is faster and nimbler than the Australian-bred goat-automatic or manual-but a retest will be in order as soon as we can get our hands on the upcoming 400-horse Pontiac-Chris Walton

Incredible. Almost sounds like a properly turbocharged Mustang GT will be running with an Enzo and yet cost under 50k.

With some 4.10 gears + decent tires that should be a 12 sec car, in the manual trans. 13.6 is a hella good time for only 99mph, so I wouldnt expect that to be the "normal" time for an automatic.

267rwhp/283rwtq = 328hp/339tq at the flywheel. (assuming 23% loss)

For comparisons sake, a 99+ GT automatic put down about 205rwhp/240rwtq, IIRC.

Let's wait and see some more acceleration test numbers from other sources. I dont doubt the numbers but I think they might as well be on the quick side considering what we will see from other tests. We'll know soon.

If they all put down ~265rwhp in the automatic that should be a good time, but not out of the ordinary.

Whether chopped, blocked, or with the top dropped down, it was an age of big-time wheels for the baddest of boys, and the Ford Mustang by DeBerti Design is made to embody that era. Sparking excitement from the very first glance, this Mustang stays true to the Hot Rod heritage, with a high-speed manual transmission and a Westrenz body kit. Though its roots lie in a bygone age, the Ford Mustang by DeBerti Design is sweet, sleek and sure to catch the eye.

Mustangs are so great because of all their aftermarket... this car is barely out and it has 10x the aftermarket options that our cars ever did.

In any case, that's a mixed bag, but I'm leaning towards: good shit.
