2014 v6 regrets anyone?

Hi all,
Hope everyone is well. My question is: do any of u regret not getting the gt? I was sold on the v6 when I heard 305 hp and 30 mpg hwy. I really don't care about the speed limiter. Current mods: flowmaster force ii, jlt cai, anti roll sway bar kit and billet retro knob. Goig to use tuner but after warranty is past.

Sometimes.

I really couldn't afford it plus the added cost of gas didn't put it in my range. I'm really happy with my sixer. I've done a few mods and I'll do a few more in the future,nothing crazy though. Overall, no I'd so no real regrets.

I think most people would want one if they could afford it, but most, like me, can't. I love my 6 and don't regret buying it. Sure, I could be financially irresponsible and have bought one, but where does that leave me down the road? Trust me when I say the thrill of owning a 5.0 fades REAL quick when bills start to pile up.

Didn't even bother testing the 5.0 because I knew I couldn't afford the insurance, gas and extra monthly payment.

Really loving my v6. Put 2.3k miles on it in the first 4 weeks. It's just a joy to drive. For everything that you can legally do on the road, the 5.0 would feel like such a waste. I'd want to constantly floor it and that would get me in trouble lol

You could of bought the 5.0 and been thrilled with the 420 HP and in less than a years time, you would want more power. More, more, more. Give me more. You think people stop at 420 HP. Ha ha ha. They want 475, 500, 550, 600 , 650 HP, 5000 HP.

People typically want more. The 3.7 is a awesome sports car that delivers power easy with a few bolt on mods. No regrets here with my 3.7.

I test drove a GT and a v6 and honestly for how much driving I do the v6 fit my needs better as I sometimes drive 5-7 hundred miles a week.

I used to have a LS1 trans am and one thing I learned is that no matter how fast you are or how much HP you have it's never enough when you race. Stock ran 13.5s then I wanted 12s and so on. Eventually you get the HP numbers you want but the cars just no fun to drive as a DD because it's just too fast to enjoy on the street. And although I got that to run the numbers I wanted I eventually missed it as a mild bolt on car that I enjoyed driving everyday.

For me a fun street car is in the 300-350 HP range and anything more is just not fun to drive on the street. This is assuming you don't want to get speeding tickets every time you get on it a little as well.

No regrets at all. I paid cash and could've easily afforded a GT or GT500 if I felt like it. I will not race on a public road and don't go to the track so anything over 200 HP is a waste for me. I once had an 11 second bike and quickly realized that you can only use so much speed if you want to keep a clean driving record or stay out of jail. I also can't stand spoilers, scoops, or vents. I prefer a clean looking low profile car. But that's just me. I have NEVER seen a GT in my area go fast, maybe it's the cops and speed cameras? A GT is just wasted horsepower and gas for most people but if you want to impress car guys a V8 helps. Unfortunately you will never impress everyone so I stopped trying years ago.

my V6 is a toy and I had enough to get the V8 and while I have the occasional regret about lack of torque/sound/not being able to say V8 if I had to replace it today I don't know if I would justify spending the extra $. If it was only 2-3K for the extra two cylinders I would pay for them but I find the approx 5-7K out of line. Yep it's a better car but not that much better.

.02 worth of opinion

So true! If one wants to impress car guys then the V8 is the way to go. You get to a point in ones life perhaps with age or not when you just don't give a fuzzy rats a$$ about impressing people. You don't care what others think. You don't care about people saying, " Why did you buy a V6 mustang".

Truth be known, even the true car enthusiasts, V8 guys don't give a crap about another's V8 or not for very long. They are impressed for all of 15 seconds and its over and done with.

No regrets buying my 3.7! Love the car! More current 297 rwhp in my 3.7 would always be nice but its never enough so I stopped chasing the HP and torque rainbow. One has to stop and enjoy what they have.

I test drove the 2014 V6 (which I bought), a 2013 GT, and a 2012 GT500 when I was purchasing my V6.

Don't get me wrong the GT500 was a beast. However, I was impressed with the 2013 GT, it did not feel that far behind the 2012 GT500. The 2013 GT did not have the track pack so it did feel very heavy up front, and had a lot of roll and break dive.

But the V6 impressed me the most ( I was thinking I wanted a base GT pre-test drive). Of course not in the same league as the GT500. The weight felt a lot more even and not as nose heavy. The suspension does need a little help but that is what I love about Mustangs, such a huge after market. As someone said before 305 HP is more than enough to get in a lot trouble on public roads. I am still happy with my decision a year later.

No regretts if i had to do it all over again id get a v6 premium again.

If i had the money to keep a weekend car then maybe id get a GT but being stuck in a GT in a stop and go traffic every morning for work would be a waste of power. On top of that , gas bill + unreal insurance for a 27 yo male, plus 8-9k additional cost...its just hard to justify all the negatives just to add 115 horse power.

No doubt the 2012 Gt500 was a beast which their rated 550 HP to the crank. Crazy thing about our 3.7's is with a 5200k supercharger, correct tune and few bolt on mods one can easily obtain 550 HP to the crank with the 3.7.

Granted , it won't have snakey emblems on its side nor ever be a Shelby Gt500 but then again titles and names never impressed me much. For 30k one could have a 550 HP 3.7 and the true muscle car enthusiasts still won't like it but then again who cares. Ha ha ha

I don't regret it in the slightest. My v6 has plenty of power, and it is great to accelerate and be able to beat out just about anybody in my car. The GT is good if you're going to race, but I can't see any other reason to buy one.

Regrets?

Absolutely not!

None.

Zero.

Nada.

My 3.7 was a far better choice than my 2007 GT in every aspect.

Wow. Due tell bro. A previous GT owner turns to V6 power. How is the power of your 3.7 compared to your previous 07 4.6.

I can also speak for this. I had an 06gt vert. My 3.7 as it is would out run it. The 3v is a tad lazy in stock form.

First off, I could afford to buy a new GT. I chose not to.

My '07 GT was the premium model. It had a Diablo Tune and a K&N CAI. My 3.7 has a Bama 93H tune and an Airaid. Side by side, the 3.7 will out accellerate the 4.6 all day long. The 3.7 pulls better, has an additional gear and better steering.

I paid an additional $5-7,000 to get the Premium GT with 300HP in 2007. I paid almost $28,000. I paid $19,800 last January for my 3.7 with 5 more HP and a lot better MPG.

I do mostly city driving with occassional highway sprints. My '07 V8 hovered around 17MPG and my '14 V6 is always above 22MPG.... with Florida highway driving exceeding 35MPG. The '07 would get 25MPG on the same highways.

Ford's leather sucked (had to have the driver's seat replaced by 1,800 miles and the new one wore through too) and SYNC isn't all that it's cut out to be. And that's the end of "Premium" for me.

For me, those are enough reasons to perfer my '14 Base 3.7 over my '07 Premium GT every day.

I have a 500hp Roush and although it's a blast to drive, I wouldn't want it as a daily driver.
The V6 is a comfortable, spunky, and fun car to drive that gets great gas mileage. In addition, I don't think the 5.0's are worth the money.
Nope, no regrets.

My 2014 V6 wipes it's *** with my 03 GT V-8 (it was a convertible however) in every single way. The 03 GT flat out sucked in comparison . I sold my 03 GT (perfect condition-only 38,000 miles) and got a brand new V6 . The 14 V6 was just better in every single way, not even close. 45 extra Hp wasn't needed but 2 extra gears in the trans made a huge difference.

I had a 2001 Cobra ( Not supercharged) and I feel my sixer is far superior to that car. Its more comfortable and just has an overall better feel.

Now this is where some of the V6 guys are as unrealistic as the GT guys. A FI setup on a V6 will cost you between 7000-10000 grand to do it right. Have to consider supporting mods such as 1 piece drive shaft which is a must as well as other things that will help put the power to the ground. 7,000 is around the price difference between a base V6 and GT (all other options being equal).

If your in the market for a new car or haven't started modding your V6 and want 400+ HP your best bet is to go ahead and buy a GT. 1. It comes with 420 HP from the factory so you will have 0 reliability issues (although with a quality FI setup you should be fine whenever you mod a car that much you always increase the possibility of having things break). 2. You will have a full factory warranty if anything breaks. 3. If you want more power its easy to get about the 420 HP mark.

But if your alright with 300-350 HP which is plenty for daily driving a V6 is a great option. Its all in what you want out of the car and how you plan to use it. One thing I learned is there is not a best car, the key is figuring out which car best fits your needs.

I am truly in love with my 6 banger! I used to be ( a long time ago) one of those "oh if it's not a GT it's not a mustang" type of people. Then I bought my 14' V6, and boy was I stupid!

I could have had a V8 a few weeks ago

My sales guy at my dealer called me and asked if I wanted a GT the same color as my V6 2012 auto. It was a 2014 auto premium with brembo brakes. I could have had it for $10,000 out the door. I took out my title, got in my Mustang and started driving to my dealers. I got on I-95 and thought about any benefits for me to be spending ten grand when I have a car I love sooooo much. I turned around and drove home. I put my title back in the fire proof box and went to the garage and kissed my Mustang.
It was an excellent deal I was offered but when I thought about spending $5,000 a cylinder I decided to keep the Mustang I love.
I'm probably stupid for not going up two years and getting the Brembo brakes but I don't track or auto-X and only drag raced my car once, I just could not justify spending that money for a car that will cost me more in insurance and less MPG, Plus I would have to start mod's all over again.
NO, I do not regret having a 3.7 V6 Cyclone powered Mustang.
I fell in love with my Mustang the first time I seen it. ( I was looking for a Focus ) I was walking through the dealers lot and it was sitting by its self and just looked so good. A rainy day and the rain made it look perfect.I made a deal and drove my RED RYDER home. My car won at the American Muscle Show in Media Pa. ($100.00 gift certificate.) It also won two peoples choice awards at shows in Orlando Florida. Nobody has ever asked me if my car was a V6.
I not only belong to a Mustang club but also belong to a Muscle car club with my car.
I have had a great time driving and enjoying my Mustang and won't even think of anything else for a very long time.



Me, My best friend "Mario" & My Mustang at the American Muscle all Mustang show
I drove up from Daytona to Media with my dog Mario. Car had about 200 miles on it when we left and about 2,500 when we got home

Mario loves my Mustang as much as I do.
