Huge Demand for 2011 Ford Mustangs
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.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
