For those of you desperate to get your hands on Ford's new 5.0-liter Mustang GT, it just got a little easier. Pricing has dropped for the base model of the 412-horsepower pony car by $500 for the 2012 model year, edging back under the 30k mark to $29,995. In contrast, the Premium GT model sees a price increase of $200 while the Premium GT Convertible is $700 more than last year.

While the 2012 Mustang lineup carries over relatively unchanged, there are a few updates to keep the cars fresh. Ford will be offering a new color, Lava Red Metallic, available on both the exterior and interior, while Sterling Gray Metallic will no longer be available. Ford has also added a few minor features like a universal garage door opener and sun visors with a storage system and illuminated vanity mirrors, and the EPAS steering system will now also come with three modes - Comfort, Normal and Sport.

Ahead of Ford’s planned public release date for its 2012 Mustang lineup pricing, details have found their way online that show a price decrease for the base model 5.0-liter powered GT, along with some feature changes and price adjustments up and down across the lineup.

The details, coming from the 2012 Mustang order guides, show several changes to the pricing strategy for Ford’s pony car, which includes a key $500 drop to base base GT to an eye-catching $29,995, but also includes price bumps to various trim levels across the lineup. All of these pricing details were found and shared by the folks at MustangDaily, including the feature additions which will be outlined below.
