2013 v6 stock height

I was looking at my stang & it seems to sit pretty low for it being stock..I was wondering if it was just mine or is every 2013 like this. I had a 2012 v6 & it was higher up & more wheel/fender gap. Pics of stock your 2013 to compare would help. Thanks.

Just put a ruler and measure from the ground to the top of the wheel opening. Then we can compare. I don't have mine atm or I'd contribute.

From the ground to the middle of the wheel well, Front is 29 1/8th rear is 29 1/2 with my winter tires on, it is a half inch lower with the Summer only Pirelli's.
I have the performance package so the front will be higher than a base V6.
Winter tires and wheels

Summer tire s and wheels

My rear sits the same and front sits higher than my friends 2011 Pony Package when my summer tires are on, a little higher with the winter tires.

The 2013 PP sits higher in the front vs non-PP cars? Didn't know that.

It sits higher with the GT suspension parts up front because the motor is lighter and the springs are rated for the heavier load of the 5.0 motor. We put GT500 springs in a GT 05-09 vert and it drove like a boat. The GT had a E Force on it too so the weight difference was really just the motor. Do the PP package cars feel light up front? Should help transfer weight to the back of the car at the drag track though...

I got the same measurements!! I guess the 13's do sit lower than the 12's.

I would not say it feels light, it actually handles awesome, not pushing going into corners. It just stays planted all the way through.
Here is a shot of the track apps Accelerometer

Don't think it would pull that with a light front end but it does dig pretty good launching also
