Click above for high-res image gallery of the 2010 Ford Mustang

Seriously, was there any doubt that this would happen? Here's the skinny, verbatim, from Ford's press release:

The 2010 Mustang will be seen in the episode "Knight of the Zodiac" inside the Satellite Surveillance Chamber, also known as the SSC or "KITT Cave." The 2010 Mustang poses as KITT during an inspection and impresses everyone.

As crazy as it sounds, this particular bit of product placement may be more subtle than the pathetic shilling of Goodyear tires that NBC cooked up for last week's episode, during which KITT actually utters, "The tread is from a Goodyear Assurance ComforTread. It's one of the most popular brands of tires sold and distributed in North America." Somehow, I managed not to immediately kill myself upon hearing that and, as a result, I'll be liveblogging tomorrow night's Knight Rider pony parade. You know where and when to find me.

      BEST caption of the year!!!

      Don't worry, poor Mustang! You don't need to talk. We can see your feelings about this in your sad, droopy eyes and wide sad-looking mouth.

      ...No, no! I don't mean that rudely, you poor dear. I don't mean that you're ugly, just that you look sad. You're gorgeous, darling. But I can see your fear.

      Don't worry, these people haven't seen anything like you. Break a leg, you'll do great!

      If you look at the Giugiaro Concept and you look it this it is like they said, "ok we will tweak this line and that line but completely change them so that you can not even tell what we did. Heck do we even now what we were doing?" No they do not. The interior is better, yes but in my opinion the outside does not know what it wants to be.

      Seriously the Giugiaro Concept was great. It had sleek lines and even dimensions while being unique. The only things I would ditch on the Giugiaro concept and keep on the 2010 are the taillights. If you look at the front of the Concept it was much more appealing. The front on the one is just awkward. The front on the GT just does not right. The top grille is too small. The bottom grille is too long. The angles of the top grille are not continued to the bottom one (like the new V6, GT500, old GT etc). The bumper front bumper is too big and too high. The whole front in general is just yuck.

      To be honest the only new "cool" car I like is Challenger. Everything else is trying too hard or not enough. The Challenger fits in the sweet spot. Too bad it weighs a ton and is slow. The Camaro has the right stuff under the hood but does not look the part. The new 370 is really ugly so I could car less what it has under the hood. And the new Mustang is not ugly but it is not exactly a looker. At least the Camaro is unique. I do not get it. Why did Ford not just make the Giugiaro Concept with some small tweaks here or there? In my opinion the only victory for the new Stang is not gaining much weight. The other two muscle cars are on the fat side.

      I love America and would love to support the Big Three but a new Evo or hell used M3 is much more appealing.

        ewww, look at that dashboard and console, it's all plastic-gyyy.
        • 6 Years Ago
        As I commented on photo #49

        Love the shine on that cheap plastic door interior. Nothing says American crap like that shine.
        • 6 Years Ago
        @Spiel

        Yeah that shine comes standard on Toyota and Honda and actually Nissan too! On the Ford Mustang it's done with 100,000 watts of lights to the side of the camera!

        Open your eyes! Oh wait, you're blind! You actually believe that Japanese products are still better than American and will do anything in your power to discredit any good doing by American companies! That's right, you're fair and balanced like fox news! ROFL..... As if!

        Peace

      I'm so glad the new Mustang is out. It's totally going to save this show.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Nothing can save this show........ Not even a ZR1,

        Honestly autoblog do you guys have a contract to keep posting this knight rider garbage in hope we will all start to like it?
      • 6 Years Ago
      If it's released at the end of 2008, it's the 2009 Mustang, not the 2010. I'll never understand why the industry does that stupid sh!t.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That might make some sense if you could go out and buy it today.

        But from everything I've read, it's not for sale until Spring '09. Rather, I should say that they won't be delivered until then, you may be able to pre-order them before then.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Did Kitt really say this??

      "The tread is from a Goodyear Assurance ComforTread. It's one of the most popular brands of tires sold and distributed in North America."

      That is the funniest thing and the saddest thing I've ever heard, all at the same time....
      • 6 Years Ago
      There's so much hate on this mid-model refresh, I don't get it. I think this version is great, a big step in the right direction for Ford as far as learning how to incrementally improve their product over the life of the model.

      I downright LIKE this car, and I'm a Honda guy.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I like the car too

        The reason is that it was over hyped. Many people still don't understand that this was always intended to be refresh, not an all new car. If this refresh had popped up out of the blue then the comments would probably be much more positive.

        It would have been hard for a true all new Mustang to live up the hype that this refresh got.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Jj, I agree it's been over-hyped. All those "teasers" from Ford didn't help. Regardless, refreshes are supposed to happen every 2 or 3 years, will full model changes every 5 years. A simple refresh isn't going to help much after 5 years of the same thing, especially at a time when two major competitors step to the plate for the first time. Don't get me wrong, I was rooting for Ford here, as many of the other disappointed people surely were. That's why we're disappointed.

      I just want to tip my hat at Alex Nunez for watching his horrific show every week for us. You aren't just doing your job, you're saving lives.

      "I love America and would love to support the Big Three but a new Evo or hell used M3 is much more appealing. "

      I can understand that reasoning.

      But do the right thing - buy American.

        corporate welfare is not the government's responsibility, it's yours!

        so buy an inferior product, the free market be damned!
        • 6 Years Ago
        The American way is to bring about economic efficiency by letting the incompetent companies fail and be replaced by the ones that are capable of earning their way to the top.
      • 6 Years Ago
      The show needs a "facelift" more than the car.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I see a bunch of "2010 Ford Mustang revealed" articles on Autoblog. Why do all of them have pictures of the current 2005 model attached to them?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Ha ha!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Why do you read/post on car-related blog when you obviously don't like/understand cars?
        Go do your bashing on some nipping-related website, that will probably suit you better.
        • 6 Years Ago
        @ Yaroukh:

        Apparently the humor was lost on you.

        Soccer Mom made that statement because the 2010 version looks so similar to the '05 version.

        Based on the teases and drawn out reveal, it's no wonder people expected much more.
