Asking the hard core Ford guys and not looking to start an argument. After 4-5 years of hype, are the numbers and or car not a disappointment? My lil brother is a hard core Ford guy as well as a few friends of mine and they all have been busting my balls the last few years about this car. My brother and a few friends I spoke to are somewhat disappointed in it.

Also I agree with 98GrandPrix if he was being serious. Dodge marketing really did kick Fords ass on this.

It's pretty much what I would have expected back in 2015/2016. Which puts it a little behind the curve in 2020.

Cant really be impressed or disappointed because I don't know the stats.


Personally I LOVE the way it looks, and if it didnt cost as much as my house I think I would seriously ditch the Cobra for one.

If the car is $80k, no dealer mark up and readily available to purchase then the car is fine.

If has dealer mark up and over $100k, then fuck that (poor financial decision for one to make, but there is a sucker born every second).

Im guessing closer to 90k with options and then over 100k with the dealer markup non-sense.

What's their disappointment?
straight line speed will be on the pair with all the top dog cars out there
Handling will be on the pair will all the top dogs out there .
Not many cars out there that can do both of them so well.
New tech , carbon fiber wheels, DCT transmission , 5.2dohc engine .looks like Ford is moving forward with new stuff

There are companies out there that are still stuffing pushrod iron blocks into 2 ton tanks

I'm just wondering why you'd be disappointed? Is it a couple years late to the party? Absolutely, but on paper its a well sorted car. Lets wait until some concrete numbers are out before we pass final judgement...

If it runs 10's in the quarter and beats a ZL1 around a course, I'd call the car a complete success. It certainly looks damn good.

What do Hellcats run off the showroom floor? Low 11's at best? I'm gonna say stock for stock the new gt500 has the Hellcat covered. No need to even discuss a road course...lol

Please explain why Dodge is laughing? This car should be all around better than their top tier Hellcat in acceleration and handling? Are they laughing because they got beat? Doesn't make any sense...

Or are you simply saying they're laughing because you like their advertising better?

Ford’s unveiling was Sad


GT500 out accelerating a Red Eye, let alone out handling a ZL1, will need to be seen.

Ford did poor advertising on this car but I don't think they give a shit about advertising gt500 . Car has been hyped up pretty hard for last few years .I'm sure Stealers will be rapping everyone with ADMs

Also - folks are focusing on Ford not realsing pricing, HP and TQ as if it is some big secret.

They have been placing advertising games, hyping up a vehicle that is no better than what competitors are putting to the market.
