Is the 2009 the first year of the new style or last of the old?

2009 was the last year of the old style. So, the current style started in 2010.

However, the new version still looks very close to what you are calling "the old style." To me, the old style was the "box" that was out in the 1980s. I also didn't care much for the change that Ford did to the Mustang in the 1990s.

The version I have came out for the 2005 model year, and  2009 was the last year. The 2010 model year saw the release of what we see now. I personally still prefer the 05-09 style. The front end of the new models look cool, but I don't much care for the rear end of the current style...

My car is in the first post on this thread, though:

Ah ok, glad you prefer your model. I was going to say I bet you were bummed to have bought before the revamp but it sounds like it worked out for you.
Personally I never liked the Mustangs from the 90's through 2009 but love the look of the 2010+ models. I'd have been mighty pissed if I had bought a 2009 Mustang.

Well, it was the 2005 model redux that had me looking at Mustangs all the time. I especially like the back end of the 05-09 models.

I knew the 2010s were coming, but I got a price of $15.5k (plus tax) for a new one WITH a spoiler. We were not even shopping for mustangs. But we saw some ads inn the Houston paper, and my wife knew I kept staring at them when I sat at red lights.

We went and test drove one locally, and then I started pursuing ads that I came across. Ended up buying mine at the Katy Dealership. You HAVE to go to Houston because the dealerships in my area will never give ya the same deal (I bought the Matrix in Houston and saved $800 at the time).

So, I was lucky to have mine. It's a $22,000 car, so I got a great deal, IMHO... People always start talking about the GT model and upgrades, but the price was what allowed me to have mine. And, I'm happy with the V6.

I will say that the newest model has a new transmission that allows it to get about 4 cylinder gas mileage in a V6, with even more horse power than my V6 has. THAT would be nice...

We will have to replace the Matrix soon. But the day I replace the Mustang, I want ANOTHER mustang  :thumbsup1:

Is the 2009 the first year of the new style or last of the old?
last of the old. His body style was from 05-09.

 2010 brought on the newer body style, and was the last year the 4.6 3v was still used in the GT.
