48,9k base.What was it before?
Plus we still deal with the ADMs from the stealers. Schaumburg Ford has a gray one they want $20k over for. So $75k48,9k base.
Tech package was $7500.
Comp package was $6500 I think.
But the packages were exclusive. One or the other.
Basically it brought the car to a 55k-56k MSRP. Kinda where it sits now.
Now the add-on packages are $3k on the base MSRP which is about 56k.
If you're okay with spending $40k, what's $7500 more?$48k and some change. They just basically added the track pack for $7500 ish as base now. And upped the price accordingly. I get it, but that pushed the car out of my range, at least for a new one. Im kinda bummed honestly.
Pretty sure I remember thinking to myself the GT350 was surprisingly "affordable" when it came out.
Not so much anymore as I think a lot of what makes the GT350 is its a raw car. Who gives a shit about the creature comforts listen to that engine and smile!
But hey at the end of the day at least its not umm...... well.... lets just say 75k like the 5th gen Z28.....
5th Gen Z28 shall forever be remembered as an over priced scam because it wears a Z28 badge.
And? id rather have the cheaper version because that 7500ish would pay for a blower...... whats better than a flat plane crank 5.2 eargasm? easy a supercharged voodoo eargasm!The items that made the car the most suited for the track were the oil coolers, spoiler, strut brace and magnetic suspension, which only came with the optional track pack.
save some money on a gt how its a completely different engine..........The problem was you couldn't listen to the engine Humm for long. It would get the trans hot, on non track pack cars, and would put the car in limp mode.
Magnetic ride control is a huge advantage to that car. I was surprised to see they offered a non magnetic control suspension on the car at all.
If you want a drag car, save money and buy A GT. Put that money you saved on buying a GT into cams, headers and a tune. It will make similar power to the GT350. Or add a blower and go quicker.
The GT350 is a handling car, let it be the best one it can be.
says who wife proposed not to mod this one and instead of putting 8k plus in the 5.0 put it towards a gt350 next year after wash dc........Stop crying.
Your not even in the market for one.
right so at the same time why buy a fully loaded car when all you want is the engine and transmission and slap a blower on it with the difference in price?mag ride is really nice on a vehicle that can be driven comfortably on the street, and hard on the track. the suspension works well, and unless it's going to be an all out track car only there really isn't a reason to swap mag ride out
we will see what the used prices look like, but if the 13/14 gt500 shows us anything it's that they gt350 is going to be pulling retail prices for the next 3 years. Especially those now very rare 15 base ones.
Yeah me either. And with this hike now for the track pack, it's adding more fuel to the fire making them more desirable.We have a white 17 gt350 coming in with blue stripes I'm really considering buying. I don't see these gt350s going down in value
