The 3.7 V6 is a great car to commute in. I found that the V8, especially with manual, is a bit of a chore to keep from trying to park in the person in front of you's trunk in rush hour traffic.

The 34mpg highway I get is also amazing. Of course, I average 25 but half of my commute is in a total traffic jam. I'd shudder to think what I'd get with the V8. Probably 16-18mpg combined.

From what I've read most V8s 100% highway are getting 25-27 and mixed it's low 20s although it's dependent on you drive. Realistically there is only 4-5 MPG difference between the cyclone and coyotes.

All personal preference tho.
The 13-14 is the best looking years Mustang period, but again that is personal preference. 13-14 is just plain mean looking.

I have no problem driving a 5.0 6M in daily DC traffic, the only place in the U.S. rated to have worse traffic than you have.

Agree to disagree. The front of the 13/14 GT and the 10-14 GT500 has a smiley face and looks like the top and bottom halves of a hamburger bun.

When something is that light ....hard to compete! V8 Chevy Vegas were dominant in the late 70's early 80's on the street.

Using that analogy the 2010-12 V6 looked the same

To me the 2013-14 are better proportioned and IMHO the overall car looks better than the 10-12

I'm talking about the GT. The GT front looks pissed off and mean and scowling. Even better with the CDC lip.


But like I said to each their own. If I was to ever get a DD for mileage it very well might be a 11/12 V6. And it would immediately get an 10-12 GT/Roush front.

More like this. This car actually looks mean. But like I said to each their own. I prefer the 10-12 GT front with the 13/14 tail lights and that's just me.

Lower opening=bottom bun, grille opening=top bun. Once you see it...

Hate hate hate hate the smiley faces on these cars, the new Challengers etc... The new Camaro, last gen Challenger and the 12-down Mustang GT got it right.

Yeah I have to agree with Siber... the "bun/smiley" theory really can be applied to both. The 13/14 might have a little thicker bun or bigger smile, but they are present on both cars.


I'll be honest, I would love to be able to get the upper grille fog lights on mine but can't seem to find a aftermarket way of doing that. I think those upper fog lights make it look a lot tougher and more like a traditional Mustang.


That said I think the 11-14 is the best looking Mustang of them all, so no complaints here.

1 - Not at all. The 10-12 GT has an angular grille and a very frowny pissed off lower section. There is no smile present unless you have a V6 or a GT with the Boss/CS front setup.

2 - Agreed, the 10-14 body style is probably the best looking one besides maybe a few of the classics... OR a really well done New Edge.

13-14 rear looks nicer as most people have stated, but in the end it is personal taste. You want a gt, fine... I supercharged my v6 and I am still waiting (patiently) to take off against a gt (especially a 15, not a fan of the look, especially rear), ss or challenger.
Anyway, do the following mods:
1) flowmaster exhaust. 2) gt500 rear spoiler, 3) mmd side scoops 4) mmd hood scoop 5) gt500 dual stripes, 6) carbon fiber interior 6) eichbach anti roll away bar kit 7) 19" staggered bullits 8) bbk shorty ceramics headers 9) rocker stripes and finally 10) procharger supercharger
Making 410 rwhp and 320 torque.


Flowmaster force 2 exhaust, procharger supercharger, carbon fiber dash overlay kit, modern retro shift knob, mmd hood and side scoops, classic quarter louvers, gt500 spoiler, 3.7 and pony emblems, mustang rocker stripes, eibach anti sway roll bar kit, Bbk shorty ceramic tuned headers

Honestly at the prices the 11/12 V6s are these days... they are a badass option for a LOT of ppl on a budget.

Very true, BUT... There are a ton of 14s on the market with low miles which gives you a powertrain warranty for a couple years, which is very nice to have.

Either way you cant go wrong!

^That too. My wife's aunt has a 2014 PP auto V6 that is coming off lease next year. I just saw it the other day, it still looks literally brand new. She and her husband are insane when it comes to cleanliness and maintenance on their cars. I may very well be picking it up next year. I dunno. Would be a daily for me or even the wife. Not a fan of the front bumper like I said but... will have to see what it costs.

Those improved looks were what sold me on my 14. I would have bought a mustang anyway, but when I saw the updated tails, and the new front end I knew I had to have one. Then when I saw the 15's I knew I better get on it and buy a 14 before they were all gone because I preferred the s197 looks over the s550.

I bought my 13 in June of 2012 and was completely sold on the body style, in fact they tried to pawn of a 12 for much cheaper but there was no way! 13-14 for me no questions.
