Huge Demand for 2011 Ford Mustangs
There has been a lot of interest in the newest model of Ford's Mustang, and that has translated into thousands of pre-orders for the 2011 set to be delivered later this year.
While new cars can generate a fair amount of initial interest, 11,000 cars is a lot even for Ford executives, who have said that the new car has three times as many pre-orders as last year's model. Chief among the reasons for some are a powerful V6 that generates about the same power as previous generations' V8.
The Mustang's brakes are good enough to stop that sort of horsepower, but right now customer's own restraint should be strong as well. Not only is the Mustang a "halo car" for Ford, meaning it's one of the most prestigious models, but it also has decades of nostalgia backing it up.
If you are interested in possibly buying the 2011 Mustang, you will want to wait several months before considering going to the dealership. The numbers speak for themselves and you won't find very many good deals until well into the summer.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
