Well, a V6 stang can take down celica's and eclipses. I have a 99 and I smoked down several 00-04? eclipses... Especially if they have a 4 cyl.
I'll put this in perspective for a normal person like you seem to be.. This site is mainly mustang enthusiast. Enthusiast that are crazy about mustangs, and want the highest fun factor that the v6 doesn't deliver. A v6 mustang is hella fun to normal people... it doesn't satisfy mustang enthusiast though. I LOVED my 99 v6 @ 190 hp 225tq and it was SO MUCH FUN!
Now I have a GT. I became a enthusiast and the v6 didn't really satisfy my needs, so I upgraded. At the end of the day a v6 is plenty for normal people.. Just not enthusiast. Grab the 07 and have fun. It's a different experience than driving a 4 door. RWD and fun. Throw a tune on it, and it turns into a new car and is even more fun.
BUT! I can say that a 99-04 gt will smoke your ***. I was in your position at 17, my parents wouldn't even let me get a sport car at first. It tooks lots of months to talk them into a v6 mustang. Grab it and have fun, just like I did. It'll be a lot more fun than your explorer, and your dads accord sport, lol.
I mean, if v6's weren't fun and different... They wouldn't sell.
