I looked at it this way.......I don't have a car payment.....my 03gt vert has 70k on it now. It looks great runs great. I chose spending $5k to get beyond those numbers rather than trade in on a coyote vert. I love my car love the look of the new edge vehicles......and don't really care for the several options the newer cars have over mine. It's about preference. Yea the new v6 cars make good power but they're also more money than a gt was then. 26,300 v6 to the 23,700 of the gt back in 2003.
