It's sad, but I may be giving up the Mustang. Practicality and economics may end up over-riding fun and practical go-to-hell.

Ford is giving 0% financing on F-150s these days. Anyone street-priced the following:

Standard/supercab SWB/LWB, 4.6L?
Standard/supercab " ", 5.4L?

7700 GVWR + towing pak on either of the above?

After the Mustang, I'm not sure I can live with less than the 5.4L and 3.55 gears.

Since I refinanced the Mustang a year and a half ago, my payments are $315 or so, and SWMBO's (She Who Must Be Obeyed) lips will get real thin if my payments go a lot above that (I don't think I have to explain the thin lips, do I?).

I just started thinking about this today. All I've done today is look at MSRPs. Any help appreciated.

I guess it all depends in what you want,and how much you owe as compared to the trade in value of your car,and how long you want to finance. I'd guesstimate you will be looking at a $350-$380 a month payment.

Why not a 1-2 year old used? you will save alot on the depreciation,and possibly be able to get more truck.

MLariviere's right on the depreciation. The 1st 2 years of a new car depreciate the most(even if the car is not moving). I would check out the Ford dealership in Round Rock for the best deal. They are way overstocked and saling trucks at $500 over invoice. They should have a used car lot as well.
