should i trade up to 2013 gt??

i have a 2011 v6 right now and i like it but i really like the new features on the 2013. i am considering trading up to a 2013 gt premium fully loaded. i can easily afford it but i am mainly going to a 2013 for all the new stuff, track apps, navigation system.. etc. but how do you all like the 2013 mustang as far as handling and the overall car. i have driven a couple but its different when you own one? need some imput daily driving and performance??

It would be a worth while upgrade. I've got an '11 GT base and if I wasn't trying to buy a house, I would trade.

what do you average mpg wise if you just drive normal and what gear ratio do you have?

Oh gosh, I am the worst person to ask that question to. I can not lay off the throttle and since my latest performance upgrades, I have been even heavier on the accelerator. Currently I'm seeing about 19mpg. That's about 45 miles a day. I drive about 30m on the hwy and 15 in the city almost everyday.

If you're not worried about gas and mpg then go for the 5.0

I'm not really concerned about gas mileage or gas prices. $10 a gallon, I'll still be wot up the hwy on ramp from a dig.

I dare to compare the interior of a fully loaded 13 gt with a bmw m3, it is just perfect ALL around car!! And performance wise most of us would never take it to 80% of what this monster can do, it is just awesome car.

If I had a V6 then yes, I'd upgrade. However, if you already had a GT I would just mod. I have a 2012 GT Premium and to be honest most of the new features don't excite me, although the HID's would be nice.

If I were considering the 2013 upgrade I would wait for the next gen stang to be revealed first so you don't regret not getting the new one.

I have a 13 gt prem. I love it, fast as hell. If you do a lot of city driving and drive it like you stole it, don't be surprised at low mpg. I get 15.9 average .

Well for me since I have a v6 2013 model I can say go for v8 if u don't care about the gas consumption,coz I do care about gas consumption,I can afford v8 but not the gas,I bought v6 and enjoy it daily like an ordinary car...

5.0 everyday means new tires every week! Haha, trust me, they're fun.
