So my comments are valid
you could get a real powerhouse of a car if your willing to sacrifice some of the creature comforts that a Premium V6 brings.

And thats why i made the poser comment
Yea their nice Mustangs the V6 premiums

But their not
Hardcore street Mustangs.

I rather pay for Hardware then Software

Then they quoted you a price way to high. 26.2K out the door for my MCA V6 premium with 3.31, Perf. Pack, glass roof & 3.31 gears. The only options I don't have are Nav and Recaros. Looking back I wish I would have got the Recaros.

This had the Recaros $1600
with Navigation and the Pro shaker
Plus the $300 Ruby Red option, and $1600 extended warranty
It was as maxed out as a V6 could get, Thats 33k easy $$$$$$
Nice car, But Too Heavy and Too slow

My Girlfriend liked it though

I recently bought my third Mustang. The first two were V6 and I loved them. The second was a convertible, making it even sweeter. The last, which I recently purchased, is a 2014 GT, my first muscle car.

I've always wanted a muscle car and now I'm glad I waited to buy one with a stock engine that has 420 HP. This amount of hp was only available in earlier model cobra, Shelby, Roush, Saleen, etc, and out of my price range.

The key to me is the hp, making it more desirable than the older 4.6L 300 hp engines, when I chose to buy a V6 instead. This latest version of the 5.0 is bad to the bone. I love mine, and glad I made the decision to buy it.

Maybe 33k MSRP but I don't think anyone has paid MSRP for these cars in a LONG time with all the rebates there offering along with any sort of negotiation skills. Most are getting base models with light options for 19-22 out the door or premium models for 25-29 out the door. I got my base for 20 k and some change out the door with Sync and a base GT would have been close to 28 so there is a big difference between a base and a GT.

Again i said ALL categories not just speed
Read Below ! Keep in mind this was in late 2011 when i bought my speed 3
and was considering a V6 mustang at the time. You cant carve corners in traffic in even my GT the way the Mazda would. That part i really miss. The Mazda was on rails ~~~~
Hopefully the 300lb lighter IRS 2015 Stang will close that gap ?

Mazda Speed3 vs Ford Mustang


These are the three specs that caught my attention

The Speed3 Sport needs around 50% less space to turn, 18.0 ft vs 33.4 ft
The Speed3 Sport can go more than 30% faster than the Mustang , 155 mph vs 115
The Speed3 Sport's braking ability is average for this class of vehicle, but the Mustang is quite bad

Obviously the 2013 V6 got major option improvements
But i was Happy with the Mazda and only the GT would pull it away from me.

Rumor has it that Ford is debating bringing out a 500 HP direct injection GT
early in 2015 after the first run of 420 hp 2015's are sold in late 2014
if thats true, Then I'am in and will be ragging on the 420 hp GT Crowd
lol

I had a speed too....tuned up to 300 at the tire. Near lethal that. My GT annihalates it in every way but gas mileage. The speeds flabby stock shocks and shytty factory tires impaired it's abilities.

AGREE, That's why i got my GT.
But its the V6 that pales against the Speed 3
That was the whole intent of my comments

But you'd have to admitt
A pair of Konis and some Good Rubber
You may have kept the Mazda ~~

I did shock and tire it...and no. It was showing signs of not being a durable car, including wierd electrical issues . It was coming off warranty and still had wrong wheel drive. I'd day this , the speed felt faster than it was, the mustang is faster than it feels.

I think the six here is still an easy win over the speed because it can put it's power down a lot easier with no drama. Still gotta shock and tire it to, same as speed.

New V-6 Camrys are running high 13's to 14 flat at 101-102, and yes he has a 2.73 MT-82 base car.

Neither can a 300+ hp V-6. A Prius will do the exact same thing for the daily commute, so what is the point? We should be all driving 65 MPH government limited 4 cylinder cars if that is the case.
Just about every car on the road can go 1 1/2-2 times the speed limit on any given road.

I realize this is the internet and everyone's a big shot but the fact is nobody can utilize the full performance of a 5.0 under normal daily driving conditions.
See above.

So if your not going to race the car, whats the point of incurring the extra cost? To go around and brag that you have a car that makes 420 HP that you never use?
Roads don't twist? There are no on ramps where I need to get to speed quickly? There are no two lanes I need to pass on quickly? I can think of at least a dozen situations where the extra power comes in handy. And I race the car on the weekends.

Quote:
If a V6 has enough power for someone to use for DD why would they pay more for power they would never use.
Again, see the Prius argument.

Base GT's have come down a bit:


New 2014 Ford Mustang For Sale | Fairfax VA

But then again so have base V-6 cars.

Well there's the auto/manual argument but I'm not getting into it. I'm going with official data and the Camry's just not faster as far as I can see. I've driven a friend's 2012 V6 Camry and can assure you, at least compared to my V6 with 3.31s and the auto trans, it is not as fast or faster.

Totally agree the 5.0 is far more hardcore on performance than the 3.7; however! Not everybody wants, needs or is willing to pay for a hardcore mustang. Many people feel that 305 HP is plenty power for their mustang considering up until 2010 the big bad V8 was pushing 315 HP.

Even though the 2010 has more torque with the newer technology in the engine and a new six speed transmission, the 3.7 puts up nearly the same 1/4 mile and 0-60 mph numbers.

Respectfully, I know this may be a difficult concept for you and other hard core V8 enthusiasts, but the entire world doesn't need or necessarily want a 420 HP car just so they can take their a$$ to Wal Mart or The Home Depot Store. Majority of mustang owners don't care enough to pay the difference for the 5.0 because for every 1 5.0 you see there are 5 V6 models.

You drove it and you liked it. Now you want others opinion? $7500 for the V8 and maybe up to 1 second difference in the 1/4 mile, assuming your a racer. That heap will depreciate that $7500 in 2 years! Buy what you need. Car payments are just legalized economic slavery for the stupid.

I didn't even consider the V6 when looking at Mustangs. I'm not saying that they are bad but I just wasn't interested in one. I wanted a V8 performance car for the torque and power as well as the sound.


I don't track this car and never intend to and just because I can't drive this car to it's full potential on the street does not mean I can't enjoy it anyway. For me, driving a 5.0 Mustang on the street is way more enjoyable than driving a 3.7 one. It doesn't have the torque or the sound that I like.


Money or gas mileage was not a factor in my purchase and I bought what I wanted.


To the OP. You have to decide what factors are important to you. None of us can make that determination for you since we don't know your financial situation or what aspects of these cars are the most important to you. Good luck with your decision.

Bro, let's be honest here. If you were really a hard core mustang power guy, you would of stepped up to the highest performance stang built, 2013-14 Gt500!
That's hard core performance mustang. Its the most bad a$$ factory mustang ever built!

So you not really hard core, your semi hard but just can't close the deal. Ha ha ha

Have to disagree with you on the gt500 - hardcore power guy thing.

Me personally I bought my 5.0 to build from the ground up like I did to stomp gt500's and vettes.

But as far as trackpack he is just a hater bud, that's all there is to it. Or a troll Idk, maybe both.

Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black
I have been avoiding your comments, but it looks like your hell bent on being
more like The Crapinator

Chill out man
There have been many other Mustang owners that have admitted they dont like V6 Mustangs *

Go jump on them for a few post.

Rapinator126 you are right. V6 have allowed the masses to own a Stang and it is just as good. But better to have than to need... Just saying.

That's hard core performance mustang. Its the most bad a$$ factory mustang ever built!

So you not really hard core, your semi hard but just can't close the deal. Ha ha
ha

Yea ive heard that in the bedroom a few times
Personally all the sales reps were telling me that when Carroll Shelby passed
That the 2013 Shelby would go thru the roof $$$

Not true
in fact you can actually pick them up on Ebay dirt cheap with maybe 3000 miles on them.

In this economy paying $30k MORE for a Shelby
to go maybe half a secound faster is NUTS $$$

Theres plenty of 5.0's that with a mere $5000 will roast a stock Shelby
So to spin around in a car that is loosing money everyday but cost $30k more then a GT is kinna Semi NUTS


So I'am Happy with a GT that will run a 12.5 and keep most cars behind my rear

How hard core can track pac be with a stock 5.0? Ha ha ha! Doesn't sound hard core to me. Where is the 800 plus rwhp 5.0 from hard core tracpac?

To say putting 5K in a 5.0 that will roast a 13-14 stock Shelby is like saying I can put out 5K into my 3.7 that will roast a stock 5.0. At the end of the day I still have a 3.7 no matter how fast it is. Respectfully, your logic has fallen short on this ( no disrespect)

The Gt500 is the king of stock/factory world mustangs. Even putting 5k into your 5.0 that would roast the stock Gt500, you still own a 5.0. Its not a Gt500! Its about image. Sure one can make a 5.0 faster than a Gt500 for far, far less than the Gt500 but its still not a GT500! Chicks love those snakes and gets then all hot and bothered.

One can easily make a 3.7 faster than a Boss 302 for thousands less but at end of day, its not a Boss. I'm sure I could make my 3.7 as fast as a 14 Gt500 for thousands and thousands less , but at the end of the day. I'm rocking a V6 and catching crap from the hardcore mustang enthusiasts about buying a V6 mustang
