Whats the difference between the 2010 Mustang and the later models

Im wondering since I have a 2010 mustang but I know that it's built more like the 2005-2009 models than the 2011 and on. Just want some of yall's opinions on this. BTW this is my first post on here!

First and foremost is engine and transmission. They went to a 3.7 liter pushing 305 hp and 280? Tq and a 6 sp auto and manual. They also now have 8.8 rear ends.

At least I think that's all accurate. Please someone else tell me if necessary

I think hids first came available in 2011 along with some other pckgs and colours. Also with the 3.7 came dual exhaust standard...its how i pick apart a 2010 v6

Your stang is sharp and that 4.0 is reliable.

Re: Whats the difference between the 2010 Mustang and the later models

I traded in my 2010 for a 2012 in February. I wanted the extra horses and the sixth gear. It's a huge difference, and you can really feel it. Downshift to 3rd and move out into the left lane... amazing. Another difference is the driver select on the steering feel. Can go from more to less road feel. Also I think there is a little more functionality on Sync.
