    2011 Mustang takes in 11,000 orders in only ONE month!



    •Orders for the 2011 Ford Mustang approach 11,000 in first month order banks are open – triple the number of orders that the 2010 Ford Mustang had at the same point in its launch
    •2011 Mustang V-6s are 50 percent of all orders, up 19 percent versus initial orders in 2010
    •First-ever Mustang Club of America (MCA) Special Edition and California Special model demand is triple expectations
    DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 25, 2010 – The new 2011 Ford Mustang with all-new powertrains has three times more orders than the 2010 model in its first month, and half of all nationwide orders are for the car’s class-leading 30 mpg 3.7-liter V-6 engine.

    “Fuel economy ranks among the top two reasons people choose vehicles,” said Steve Ling, North America Car Marketing manager. “With the 2011 Mustang lineup, we’ve found a way to offer even better fuel efficiency for V-6, GT and even Shelby GT500 performance drivers – while improving performance. And consumers are responding.”

    Nearly 11,000 Mustangs have been ordered since order banks opened in late January.

    Fifty percent of the 2011 Mustang orders are for V-6 models, which feature a new, high-performance, all-aluminum Duratec 3.7-liter dual overhead-cam (DOHC) Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing (Ti-VCT) engine. This new engine delivers 305 horsepower and an expected best-in-class EPA fuel efficiency of 30 mpg on the highway – a 25 percent improvement versus the 2010 model.

    2011 Mustang V-6 order levels are up 19 percent versus the new 2010 model orders.

    “The new engine transforms Mustang,” Ling said. “Everything people love about the car lives on, and now under the hood is a V-6 engine that uses premium technology to deliver the power, the feel, the fuel efficiency, even the sound of the best sports cars in the world.”

    A first-ever Mustang Club of America (MCA) Special Edition package available on V-6 models generated three times more orders than expected. Plus, “take rates” on the California Special series – which is available on the Mustang GT and harkens back to the original 1968 feature vehicle – are triple the expected rates.

    2011 Mustangs also are being equipped with record levels of technology. Navigation is specified on 18 percent of orders. High-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps are on 26 percent of vehicles. Rear-view cameras are on 10 percent – all up from 2010.

    For the 2011 model, 41 percent of orders are for Mustang GTs.

    The Mustang GT’s modern 5.0-liter four-valve, Ti-VCT V-8 engine delivers 412 horsepower and 390 ft.-lb. of torque. At the same time, fuel economy of 25 mpg highway is projected to be better than the previous model and unsurpassed in the segment.

    Approximately 9 percent of the 2011 Mustang orders are for Shelby GT500 models, which are powered by an all-new aluminum-block 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 engine. This produces 550 horsepower and 510 ft.-lb. of torque, a 10 horsepower increase versus the 2010 model. The engine also is 102 pounds lighter than its predecessor, delivering a better power-to-weight ratio, improved fuel economy, acceleration, handling and steering precision

    Somehow this doesn't seem unusual at all. An unknown quantity vs a product with 40+ year history. IIRC, the original Mustang still holds the record for first year sales . It's all good for Ford!

    Way to go Mustang!
    The new engines are what people have been waiting for, both power and economy.

    I thought the Fiesta pre-orders seemed low, and this seems to verify that.
    Beyond all the hype, most people are not ready to live with a car that small. Have you ever taken a long drive with someone's knees from the back seat jabbing your seatback?

    awesome Job ford the real battleground IMO though will be the V6 wars between the V6 stang and the Camaro. Both V6s are very close in output so It will be interesting to see who comes out on top. The V8 ward will be intersting as well but the Camaro will still hold a slight advantage in terms of horsepower but it won't be as dominating as it was with the old 4.6
