Is it fast?

Hey guys
I just bought my first mustang a 2010 v6 with pony package and glass roof. Was wondering if anybody can tell me if they are fast. I like accelerating and dnt care about top speed. Please tell me how it accelerates.

Re: Is it fast?

Seriously guys, if you are not going to answer the question or don't care to do it without being condescending, then don't reply. There is no upside to being condescending to members who are asking a simple question. I've run out of patience over the last day or two with crap like this.

To the original poster, I am sorry that your thread has had this crap posted in it and hope that you get the answer you were looking for.

No, but I have owned two in the past. I have some pictures of my second one here: Mustang Evolution - Brent's Album: My Former 1996 V6 Mustang

Sorry man. Didn't mean to offend. The answer to the original quest depends on what you consider fast. Not being a smart a$$.

Here is a good read: 2011 Ford Mustang V6 vs. 2010 Chevrolet Camaro RS - Comparison Tests

Yes it is a 2011 V6 but you can kind of put that into perspective with the specs of your 2010 V6.

First, congrats on your 2010! They are very nice cars and the glass roof is a sweet option. Your 2010 4.0 v6 has 210hp and 240 ft lbs of torque...not a bad car.

Your acceleration and performance is probably comparable to a 96-98 4.6L GT, and slightly under a 99-04 auto GT.

The 0-60 is probably ~6.5-7 secs and the 1/4 mile is low to mid 15's based on transmission.

If you really want to increase your acceleration then look into some taller gears, a tlok, and a handheld tuner. The gears will distribute power better throughout the powerband resulting in better acceleration throughout all rpm ranges. The handheld tuner will adjust your speedo for the gear change, as well as make serious improvements to your transmission (if you have an auto).
