The base V6 Mustang will be priced around $19,735, the premium V6 at $21,735, and the Pony Package V6 at $22,485. The V6 base convertible goes for $24,560 and the premium V6 convertible is $26,560. The base GT is priced at $26,425, the premium GT at $28,375, and the convertible GT at $31,250. The premium GT Convertible has a price of $33,200. The Shelby GT500 starts at around $42,685 (Convertible is $47,510) and the Shelby GT500KR is priced around $79,995.

Final Take

When all is said and done, the 2009 Mustang is the 2008 Mustang with several new options and fewer special editions. Most importantly, rumor is the entire model year will be limited to 45,000 units. Is this a clever marketing ploy on Ford's part, or is this limitation in honor of the Mustang's 45th anniversary? Ford knows limited-edition models have been fast movers for the company. Maybe they are protecting themselves from potential losses by limiting production for the year.

All 2009 Mustangs are predicted to be built in Flat Rock, Mich., with final assembly of the Shelby GT500 and GT500KR taking place at the Shelby Automobiles facility in Las Vegas. A mid-summer 2008 launch is expected.
