On first look at the photos, front end looks Charger rear looks Camaro, the design is too busy at both ends, doesn't integrate as well as the S550. Ford is trying too hard to make it look special. The Premium gigantic touch screen looks way out of place in a muscle car, just to please the millennials? It'll be a pain to select things, but worse is the HVAC controls are touch also, ugh! We always need proper knobs for those. That screen really distracts.
Right on with the Big Ass in your face distraction heavy touch screen. Ugh Ford is going the Tesla screen route here. Just so out of place in a Stang!

I think it's a nice send off. My gauges look and feel a little dated. Why can't or shouldn't use mustang owners have a modern dash? I feel it's suitable with the modernized exterior. I welcome it, but to each their own.

Nobody complains about the Z's new interior, but for 2024 and the last ICE mustang it's a problem? As a S550 I don't agree lol. It looks great.

The all new 2.3 is great news, but the twin throttle body gen 4 takes the cake. We have a 50 pound weight gain at the most for the v8 and saw the new Z gain a solid 100 pounds. For me, the updated engines with little weight gain across the board is quite a relief.

A tremec in the base model v8 with a small bump in price is asking too much of Ford and unrealistic. If it weren't the exterior or dash people would find something else to complain about.

If I decide to get own it will again be one of the cheapest in the country and far below msrp like the one I'm driving. Initially I wasn't interested in the dark horse, but I know one can be had at $50k or less at the right time of the year. These are Mustangs and will always be a dime a dozen. A dark house with the tremec seems like the right move.

Looks a lot more like a Camaro now.
It does.
Haha, Ford put the Chinese MT82 6MT into the S650! Plenty of people disappointed by that. So "Murican!"

It's why I generally won't consider Ford's, the amount of outsourced garbage in them is ridiculous.....
It doesn't seem like shift forks are as much of an issue and breaking as they we're back in 2018. One can always opt for the tremec and other upgrades with the dark horse.

The Zs manual isn't receiving high praise and I doubt it's as good as the tremec or that the Nismo will receive any updates other than a shorter final drive. Mustang owners and buyers ultimately have better options. The auto is better than the Zs. Both 10r80 and tremec are money. MT82 aside, mustang offers the better transmissions.

Here’s a photoshop from the other forum without the black plastic.

Looks much better in white body color here. Shows off the lines better. I don't mind the black plastic around the headlight but it does look a little sharper with it body colored. Could probably just get that wrapped to match the body color.

I really like this race car front end. They showed. Should have definitely used this on the regular 5.0 Trim.

Blame Federal regulations.

However, they did lower the greenhouse threshold.
