2010 Mustang undercuts competitors

Ford Mustang 2010 fq

The new 2010 Mustang pricing has recently been released for the domestic American market and it has many Ford enthusiasts excited. Ford are continuing its tradition offering the Mustang as a cheaper option than its peers.

The American base price for a standard V6-powered 2010 Mustang is reportedly $21,845 ($41,358 NZ). By comparison, its biggest competitor will be the Camaro, which starts at $22,995 ($43,505 NZ). The other revived pony car is the Dodge Challenger, which in base SE form begins with a $22,545 ($42,653 NZ) sticker price. Each of these entry-level models comes equipped with a standard V6 engine, though the Challenger comes only with a four-speed automatic while its competitors offer a stick. Anyone wanting an open-air experience has no choice but to opt for the Ford, as the Blue Oval’s offering is the only modern musclecar with an optional drop-top.

Going up to a V8-powered Mustang will reportedly run you $27,995 ($52,964 NZ) — quite a bit cheaper than the V8-powered Camaro’s $30,995 ($58,628 NZ) price tag. Dodge’s entry runs $30,545 ($57,776 NZ) for the base R/T model and its HEMI V8. It’s not exactly a direct comparison, as the Mustang GT is down a bit on power compared to its rivals, but with the GT’s cut-rate pricing it should be enough to make sure the Ford is a very popular vehicle.
