Did you catch this? Motor Trend names their top 10.......not 1 but 2 Fords on the list: Boss 302 and Focus! Nary a GM or Mopar in sight!

All the magazines always award the boss and gt and never the gt500. I guess they think it's just way too expensive for lacking in the regards it does at a 70k price point (though Jamaal thinks its the bargain of the century lol)

Base price is 55k for the '13 GT500 which is quite the bargain for what you get and the magazines have said that as well. They also said they like the Boss so much because it is near perfect. I agree.

Cool... The base GT is such a bargin for a +400 hp car.

And that ST Focus is a nice looking car too.
