Hey, check this out! The Canadian pricing is the same as the US pricing - but in CANADIAN dollars:
"Amid a slew of new Ford products, the world's second-largest automaker has announced Canadian pricing on its trusty Mustang, which is newly-designed for 2005.

The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the Mustang Deluxe coupe is $19,410, while the Premium coupe will start at $19,995. The GT coupe starts at $24,995."
DOH!
Don't believe everything you read, I guess; here's the REAL pricing from Ford:
2005 Ford Mustang V-6 Coupe remains the lowest-priced, rear-wheel drive sports car in Canada, with the manufacturers suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $23,795 ($18,479 US)
2005 Ford Mustang GT remains the best performance car and the most affordable 300-horsepower car made with an MSRP of $32,795 ($25386US)" -I guess it was too good to be true. :(

...and our dollar is worth only about 0.774 US. That means a coupe will sell in Canada for about $15.5K US, and the GT would go for about $19,350 US, and that's LIST PRICE!! Woohoo, and I can get X-plan pricing!!!

That may be true but when you bring it in the US for transfer don't you have to pay a tax of sorts so by the time you get it here it's costs just about the same as if you would have bought it here in the first place. ::

Nyah-hahahah, I'm CANADIAN!! The interesting part is that this info should give you guys a good bargining position; if they can sell them here for that much and still make a profit, what can you expect to pay in the US? After all, they're all made in the USA, right? They don't suddenly cost less to make when they get shipped north.

don't you have to pay a tax of sorts
"Free Trade" (North American Free Trade Agreement - NAFTA)

Should only be your local state licensing fees/taxes, which you'd have to pay anyway. You would likely have to pay the Canadian "Goods & Services Tax" (GST) up front but it would be refunded to you as a US resident. I have a friend who bought a new car here last year and imported it to the US (Seattle). Saved a couple of thousand $$. (You do need to be certain about safety and emissions certification.) If you need to know the details I'll get him to write a post.

Yeah, but read it again, I edited it. The internet news service got the pricing wrong!!! ARGH. Still cheaper for the plain-jane coupe though. Nuts.
