Gt, V8 = mustang That's a pro!
Non Gt, V6 = mustang

Cons to V8 or V6? None, both are mustangs. Mustangs = awesome. Case closed. V6 = same body design and look as Gt, really fast and 7k less than GT. V8 = same body design as V6, really really fast, and 7k more than V6.

When I was a newbie I asked all sorts of questions that I'm sure had been asked before. But that is the fun of forums. Not just a searchable knowledge base but a way to collaborate and get ideas from fellow Mustang lovers.
It just seems lately that there are a few members that go strait to bashing questions. If you don't want to answer it then don't and move on to the next thread.
I chose ME out of all the others because it is a great forum. But the condescending and negative comments are starting to get on my fricking nerves.

I expect to get a crap load of pros, but would like to hear what has to be said about the cons to. All and every input is appreciated.
The only con on owning a GT would be the power, especially a 5.0. If you are not responsible enough to handle the power don't get it because you can end up hurting yourself or someone else. Other than that everything else are pros.

To The Op: as you said in your earlier post all that you've driven we're V6's so I would assume you enough about them. Either test drive some V8's and find out the difference yourself. When you search for Pro's and Con's your really asking for opinions, and they only lead to people's personal preferences. If you want MORE performance you know you should get a GT, it will cost alot more but you get what you pay for. I've had a few runs with modded V6's "open streets no traffic completely safe" and they can go but I edge them out and I'm still Bone Stock underneath

I live by a saying "Less is More" but not when it comes to cars, those two extra cylinders show up big time. I come to the forum to learn as well and help where I can. I don't understand why threads blow up when we are all talking cars.

The new GTs are very deceptive. They drive around like a regular car, easy, non-intimidating, relatively quiet and subtle (by Mustang standards) good gas mileage for the power and engine size. Get over 1/2 throttle or over 4000 rpm and it hits like an AC-130.

I'm basically stock on slicks, with Ford's Procal tune and the cars is knocking on the door of the 11s, full weight, every option but glass roof. That's strong and it's tough to argue with performance value like that.

Pros: fast, powerful, great looking, basic bolt ins make it faster and more powerful while sounding amazing.

Cons: more expensive in all categories, a money pit that continues to get bigger.

V6 pros: less expensive in all categories, still quick car with potential to be pretty fast, gas mileage for a dd,

Cons: can still be a money pit, will always see a gt on the The road and wonder if you should have bought one instead.

We have a couple V6 guys at my local track and they have A LOT of money in their cars and, they aren't really that much faster than stock GTs. One has over $5000 in a blower kit alone, plus all the supporting stuff. Yeah, it's trapping 117 but, healthy tune + some exhaust work can pull that off on a GT, painlessly and cheaply.

It is what it is. I admire the fact they are making the junior Mustang a force to be reckoned with. Previous V6 Mustangs were downright terrible by any performance metric and could not be pushed without sizzling like Pop Rocks.

I've read the op's question twice now, how did this turn to v8 vs v6? The initial cost is the only thing that cost more. Insurance can be bought right unless your young. I pay $34.50 a month, full coverage with no deductible, no depreciation. The only con I can think of is the power, if that's possible, the car can flat get out from under you. The shifter in the gt is also a con when driving it really aggressive, not so much when driving it like a normal car.

I guess if that's the only thing that coat more I would sell my V6 and buy another GT :S

When you ask the pros and cons of the GT model, youll give your pros and cons on the gt. then you're going to compare them to the non gt model. Unless you're trying to compare them to other cars in its class. its difficult to have pros and cons without comparing it to another model and or car.

Let me put it to you this way, I own 2 vehicles a 1999 lexus RX- 300 suv v6 awd with 144k miles on it. it gets 18 mpg around town. My 2012 supercharged 602 hp mustang gets 18.5 mpg around town. These coyotes when properly tuned are extremely efficient, and their power potentials are enormous.. Cons ..the fact that they make a v6 model....lol!

Pretty simple.....there are no cons to a V8. The power is amazing and sorry if I offend any of the people with V'6 stangs but I would NEVER buy a V6. If I am gonna buy a stang it has to be a V8. Gas mileage is not bad and insurance well that all.depends on how bad of a driver you are and how old you are. IMHO. And yea you asked for opinions lol. But realistically there are many reasons why people buy V6's...and I completely understand why.

OP......Unfortunately, there are 1or 2 members on here that consistently rip ones head off and shove it up their a** if they feel a question isn't worthy. That being said, I got a GT because, in the past I would settle for something less expensive but wouldn't be happy. Insurance cost vary drastically based on location, age and driving record. For me, my insurance went up $100 a year over the 1987 BMW I drove. But I am older, married and clean record. As far as fuel economy goes, I get 19-21 on my daily commute. I think that's pretty good. The BMW would get 24. My wife's V6 Lexus RX350 gets about 18 for comparison. So, yeah, the GT is more expensive over other options, but as someone pointed out, life is short....have fun. I grin from ear to ear every time I drive the 'Stang. I actually almost look forward to going to work now just because of the drive. Bang for the buck....you can't go wrong with a GT, but you gotta analyze your budget.

Honestly, ^this is how it should be. You either want the V8 or you don't. There is no in between. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting or having a 6'er Mustang. But, if you are trying to decide and you need help with that...get the 6'er.

Agreed. When I bought mine in late 2010 it was either all or nothing and there was no thought that maybe I should get the 6. If you have to ask just get the 6.

I just ordered a V8, the most compelling reason was when I test drove both V6& V8 on a slight hill, I could definitely feel the difference in power and fun factor.

No one offended here boss. If you don't like a mustang 6er, then don't buy one. I have an 11 V6 about 3500k in mods and I'm running 0-60 in around 4.6 to 4.7 consistent. That's plenty fast for me yo.

I love the V8 but not everybody needs or wants that type of power for the 7k more. It depends on what ones wants are and there goal in the vehicle. I like being the little sixer that the other big V8 musscle cars underestimate and then keep right with them even if they edge me out barley.

Having said that. The 5.0 is awesome . If I didn't currently own my 11 v6 and given my current financial position today and mustang knowledge, I would buy the 5.0. Either way I love my v6 and have NO intension in trading it up to the V8.

I know a guy who has a 2012 v6 the motor completely forged and he has a super charger he runs 18lbs of boost 3:73 gears and with race gas he runs 12.1's with it all day long, it puts 457 hp to the rear wheels and he beats it up every chance he gets...its still running strong. If your gonna own a v-6 this is how you do it. you surprise the hell out of a few folks on the street!

Lol forged motor- $3000-5000, super charger- $5000, 2013 v6 mustang- $27000. So $35000k not including labor or instillation on the motor and supercharger and you get 12s all day?

2013 5.0 mustang- $32000, custom tuner and tune-$400... 12s all day haha. So lets say we wanna share the $35k bill. $35000-32400 is $2600. Boss Mani and cold air intake-$1000, drag radials for stock wheels-$500, lower control arms-$200... I'll stop there at 11s all day. Save the other $900 for taking the wife out to dinner and get some appearance mods.

The only con in owning a GT is that every time I see, or am driving next to an SS, SRT8, GTO or something similar I wonder if they are thinking the same thing I am.

2013 5.0 mustang- $32000, custom tuner and tune-$400... 12s all day haha. So lets say we wanna share the $35k bill. $35000-32400 is $2600. Boss Mani and cold air intake-$1000, drag radials for stock wheels-$500, lower control arms-$200... I'll stop there at 11s all day. Save the other $900 for taking the wife out to dinner and get some appearance mods.
Oh i forgot to say thats on street tires... Not slicks so he can run mid to high 11's on slicks

If your gonna own a v-6 this is how you do it. you surprise the hell out of a few folks on the street!
