Considering a V6

Newbie here thinking about getting a mustang. I am definitely going used and planning to get something 11 or newer. My question is why did you choose the 6 over the GT. What compelling reasons are there for me to consider the 6 over the GT? I like that the newer 6 is relatively equivalent to the prior GT power wise. But the newer 5.0 is obviously worlds apart from either. I would also consider a 2010 GT due to price and availability.

V6 has lower insurance and gas.

Yeah, just make sure you get the one YOU want. Not what anyone else wants you to get.

what ever you do don't get a 2010 gt.. The 2010 has the new body style but does not have the 5.0 coyote. It's still a 4.6. If u get a v6 I would suggest 2013 newer because they have 1 piece driveshafts, hid headlights.

Maybe not one piece but definitely not the ****ty ones that come on the 2010-12. I actually talked to ford and they said the 13 and 14 v6s have upgraded driveshafts. I've actually done over 135mph

I realize there is obviously a big jump in HP from the 10-11 GT, but I've also read where a few people actually prefer the sound of the 10 GT over the 5.0.

The 11+ V6's are nice, but if you want the V8 sound and still have an edge over the new V6's (Mustangs and imports such as Nissan/Infiniti, etc.) the 4.6 liter 2010 is a winner. Both are great platforms, but I prefer 8 cylinders and the sound it produces.

Comes down to preference and what you find in the used "pre-owned" market.

A lot of people think the 4.6 sounds better than the 5.0. But the 5.0 makes up for it and more with performance

what good is it to sound good if the power doesnt compliment it. a 5.0 has a mixture of exhaust systems. borla for example is unbeatable on a 5.0

but if you prefer sound over perfomance? i bet you will soon be over the sound and hate that you didnt go with the 5.0 for performance.

as for the v6 if you are going to get a 2013-2013 v6? keep looking because you will find a 2011 gt for that same price. dont cut yourself short on a v6 the v8 will be a better choice by a large margin.


but as stated above. do it for you everyone else opinion should not interfere with your decision.

The one thing I like about the 4.6, is a good exhaust and cammed, it sounds fantastic. But that's about all I like on them haha.

Same drive shaft man. The few that blew were blown WAY outta proportion.

Truth. There could have been numerous other factors that led to the failures.

That being said, a 2 piece driveshaft is a bad idea and not as strong but you should be fine. Unless you stay on it too long.

U can't go wrong with either a 11+ v6 or GT. I've had both & their both great cars! Look at what u want out of the car & what's most important to u like all out performance for a car that's gonna see that track or a DD that maintenance cost is important!
I will say this I would get a 11+ v6 over a 10 GT but to me the v8 sound isn't THAT important, that being said I've never had a 10 GT tho.

I purchased a 2012 V6 Premium last year with manual shift. I almost bought a nice 2006 V8, but after doing some research I discovered that the newer V6s have as much HP as the older V8s. Since I commute 50+ miles daily, the difference in gas mileage, and lower insurance rates were enough to convince me. I really wanted the Premium package, and getting the manual shift was an added bonus. A year later (plus 18K miles, many long trips, tinted windows, new spoiler, upgraded speakers and numerous other little upgrades), I'm still in love with my Mustang and can't wait to drive it every day. I have a ton of performance mods I want to make, but I'm just taking my time and enjoying the car for what it is right now. Good luck with your purchase...no matter what you get, you'll love it!

I know its sacrilege, but I like a raspy high-strung six exhaust note. The deep rumble of eights are great, but I guess coming from the rotary and import world I like the tight revs and tone on decel.

First of all what are you going to use the car for? I do a ton of highway driving for work and haven't been to the track in years due to other things I have going on. That's why I choose the V6. It has great streetable power that is fun to drive yet on my highway trips I get anywhere from 31-35 MPG depending on speed, roads, etc. Its a fun daily driver that can still be fun to take down the track every now and then. While I realize it won't be and never will be the fastest car without a significant amount of money poured into it.

Now if you want a car that you plan to race a lot there is no competing with the GT. Sure you can play the whole 'if you turbo the V6, etc' but then you can just put a turbo on the GT so I think that's a stupid argument. If you want the best platform for power that will give you room to upgrade to more power later down the road the GT is a great choice. But for most if you don't regularly race the car 420 HP isn't usable under normal DD conditions.

At the end of the day you will be driving the car so figure out what your going to be using it for and make the best choice for you.

I get 24 MPG highway at 80-90 mph. Granted that's about an hour and a half of nothing but highway.

I wont tell you what you should do, but tell you why I bought the V6:
I bought a V6 and am glad I did. I commute and the increased MPG along with insurance costs convinced me. Driving the GT the same way I drive the V6, I bet my mixed MPG would barely be 20. The V6..it is 27 mixed...highway gears and I don't drive conservatively. Insurance was crazy high for me with the GT. I have three cars. Adding the GT to my other two would have jumped me from 500 to 1400 for 6 months. Adding the 6 went from 500 to 750. The V6 costs almost the same as a 2013 Accord.

Get what works for you, not what others tell you to get. I don't understand why people say 'you'll wish you got the GT', or 'Don't cut yourself short' etc etc.
Only you know you...nobody else. What works for you might not work for others.

Whether or not you'll be 'cutting yourself short' or not depends on your preference. There has been multiple users on these boards that have gone from their 2013 V6 to a 2011-2014 GT. Obviously, they liked their V6 but wanted more.

Others are very content with their V6.

I chose to buy my 2011 V6 because I wasn't willing to spend 8k more at that time (in October 2010) for the V8 model. It wasn't important enough to me to spend 8k more for a better sounding rumble or 100 more HP.

OP, it depends on what you want and how much you are willing to spend on it. Not being able to afford something and not worth the added cost are two very different animals. I could of easily afforded a GT model but I wasn't willing to spend the added money.

Idk why you are wasting your time even thinking about a v6 or GT.

OP, did you respond on what you're doing with this car? I didn't notice it going through the pages.

GT is the best performance bang for the buck- 2011+

6 is economy car mpg when you want, for less than an economy car price, with twice the economy car performance, rear wheel drive only and easy to find standards.

I bought my 6 for those reasons. Sure, having 4+ or 6+ HP would be sweet, but I barely use 200+ of what I have right now. I joke with my dad about how his focus is so terrible on FE, he ONLY gets 35 mpg...lol.

Until I punched it, I noticed no difference.

I went and test drove a GT automatic not long ago.
In just normal driving around town , I did not notice any difference at all from my 3.7 2012 V6 automatic.
When I got On that V8 all I can say is "WOW" If your into total performance, Get the gt. If your into good performance the V6 is perfect.
My V6 has way more power then I use unless passing a slower car on a two lane. I don't track or auto-X anymore so the V6 is ideal for my type of driving.
I actually prefer my 2012 MCA over the 2014 GT due to lower Maintenance, Cheaper insurance, Uses 87 octane, and great gas mileage.

Thanks for the information everyone. I have no desire to race at the track. I do however tend to appreciate fast vehicles. This would not be a daily commuter for me year round as I live in Wisconsin. This vehicle will be my "toy" replacing a motorcycle as a more sane and safe alternative now that I have a couple of kids and want to be around with them for the long haul. Love my bike (1800 CC Flat Six Honda F6B), but I want something my wife and I can enjoy together without my worrying that if we get hit on the bike my kids don't have parents. Getting old and more responsible sucks. lol It's truly more my worrying than my wife. She loves the bike.

That said, this vehicle will be a daily commuter for me at least 2-4 times per week during the spring, summer and fall months and will be stored for winter. I want something I can be proud of. Giving it more thought, my whole motivation is that I want a "muscle" car. I've always liked them since I was a kid and have never owned one. I've owned 4 cylinders and V-6's but never a car with an 8 under the hood. Never had that "rumble" in my vehicle. Midlife crisis?

I guess I was just looking for feedback as to why the 6 crowd got the 6. I wanted to know if there was something glaring that I was missing that makes the 6 a better option for me. From what I've read it seems that the biggest motivations have been MPG and "The power is just right for what I need it to do". Right now my daily commuter is a 2013 Taurus which I believe is 265 HP. I want to know that whatever I get, there is a substantial difference in performance and feel from my Taurus, besides just the aesthetics.

That said, I think I'm leaning more toward the GT, whether it's a 10 or something with the 5.0. I need to test drive both. The 5.0 almost seems like overkill to me, whereas with the 2010, I can still get the body style I like, the rumble of the 8 and the ability to throw a few upgrades on it to boost the HP a bit if I should desire. But, at the end of the day if it's only going to be a difference of $1,000 between a 10 and an 11 with the 5.0, I would be silly to get the 10.

Decisions, decisions...

Thanks again for the feedback. This is all very helpful.

One more question, does the 2010 only run premium or is that just a 5.0 thing?

V6 - less expensive, less expensive insurance, better fuel economy.
V8 - faster, better resale value.

I think most everything else is opinion.

Ive seen a few 2013 5.0's selling in my area for around $23-24k with less than 20k miles.. and they had premium package. Thats a damn good deal! I would go for the 5.0. I spent 22k on my 2013 v6 in 2012. Kinda wish I would have waited a couple years.

That being said, a 2 piece driveshaft is a bad idea and not as strong but you should be fine. Unless you stay on it too long.

There is really no such thing as a 1 piece driveshaft since it would not work. All driveshafts need to change their length due to axle movement. That means they are made of 2 pieces that slide together and apart to change their length. It is the location of the slide joint in the middle that is unfortunate on the stock v6.
