Traded my 2010 gt premium for a 2016 Colorado z71 and miss my pony

Hey guys, I traded my 2010 mustang gt in to the dealer about a month ago and regret it now. I miss my v8. The Colorado is very comfortable and has all the bells and whistles including 4x4. I just miss my mustang so a day afterwards I tried contacting the dealer seeing if I could maybe undo the deal but they had already sold my 2010. The salesman called me thirty minutes later asking if I would be interested in a 2015 mustang gt with the 20 wheels. They said they would do a even swap for the GT. It's a premium auto also with 6k miles on it. The Colorado has almost 2k now. What do you guys think. It would be nice to have a 5.0 for once. Here is a pic of my mustang and the new truck.Also the truck is paid off.

I'd miss the Glass Roof too much, but you'd be coming way up on power! You can't do both? I'm looking forward to getting a truck within the next year to 1.5. Still torn on a Super Duty, Raptor or new Ranger.

Yeah, that was my favorite feature of the car for sure. Except when it broke. Those things are expensive to fix. I would have bought a ford truck but the f-150's are just too big for myself. The Colorado is nice and has good power for a v6. The limiter on that truck is annoying though. It won't let you go over 98 mph. I found out trying to pass a line of cars on the road. I'm going to ask the dealer to swap out the summer tires on the GT if they are willing to do that and the car is in good shape I might pull the trigger this weekend.

I wish I could do both but I currently separated from my wife and I'm stuck with all the house bills. That's one of the reasons I traded my mustang and ranger in. They gave me a great deal on the mustang since it had extremely low miles.

Do you really need a truck living in South Carolina?
If you miss the Mustang and can afford getting into another one, go for it bro. Enjoy yourself.
Good luck!

Is this a case of the grass is greener on the other side? I guess we don't know what we have until we let it go. Hope it all comes around for you.
Put a hitch on it and buy a trailer. That's what I do.

The GT has more power than the Colorado, but hey the 'Stang doesn't have a bed.

I bought your '10 and will sell it back to you for $30K.


Just kidding -- good luck either way you decide to go.
