I would think this would be a great marketing ploy by performance companies to get v6 owners to purchase aftermarket driveshafts to increase sales and profits.
I agree Kona Blue. I really doubt Ford built an inferior product and then limited speed because parts might fail. A safety loop might limit some damage but with the break in the middle it's doubtful. If Ford suspected problems with their driveshafts you'd think they'd have used a loop themselves. What's curious is the different limits on their different vehicles. I'd certainly never want to see my wife's Flex at 120.

I was just throwing that in because my dads 72 has an aftermarket digital am his 71 454 has just a clock, speed, and gas gauge. My 70 just got converted to 4 speed and with no tach it's hard to shift kinda. Just randomly off topic

Built stronger I believe. Something about them can handle 155+

And Ford didn't decide to just make a low quality part. Especially not a drivenshaft. No, I don't think they build the v6 to handle the rare people who buy it for track performance, but they found a product that worked, and used it. Be it tires or driveshaft, there isn't much ofna need to go faster. Severalnpeople brought up quarter mile. I think they couldnhave gone to 125 ish, but they looked at quarter mile top speed and figured no one is going to peg on the stock tune.

I don't think insurance companies judge by top speed. I always hear cylinder count as the decider.
I pegged my tune and want more. Js. Coming from a new edge, 60 feels like 40. 100 feels like 60. Just the way my mind sees it. And no more wet rope handling

Ford did this to cut cost and make money. It's how business is run. Low production cost and a higher price for consumers tht want the newest pony car. Most don't care what's under it. Just the sheer fact of owning a mustang or a bunch of daddy's girl that know nothing like we do. I bet ford never thought that people would bring up these things. I'm random in sentence and flow structure. Sorry.

I thought I would hop in... The faster you drive the more you are naturally going to pay attention to the road, I've noticed that I tend to get lazy and distracted when I drive slowly. The faster I go the more connected I am with the car and the more I pay attention. Which is probably why the autobahn sees less accidents, the people driving it know what the **** they are doing. We all know America is home of some of the laziest drivers in the world, no doubt about that.

These were fun cars. Look at that torque. Speed limited? No
You honestly think your car compares to a 428CJ...? Seriously... Here this might help..

From a 0-60 and 1/4 mile times stand point, YES. The point is the now v6 models are full of power and have more than just a little pep. You have v6 models running 13.8 to 14.1 1/4 mile times on stock tires, fully stock and 2.73 gears. The previous year GT models were running similar numbers yet that was good because it was a V8. Fast is fast no matter what cylinder a vehicle has. For a 22k car it is full of power and potential with a few thousand in mods.

You have a warped sense of reality. I've driven them all since day one. The newer cars handle better.. Especially the new V6
Vs that front end heavy 428. And the new Gts would leave the 428 in the dust on the strip or the track. Obviously the data presented side by side supports my findings. As for your analogy its very flawed as that new charger is deceiving. Lurking in the engine bay is a 392 cubic-inch V8 that produces 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. That's enough power to scoot the big sedan from zero-to-60 mph in the mid four-second range. The quarter-mile flashes by in under 13 seconds, and top speed is a claimed 175 mph.I

Look more closely.. The car in top in the photo is a 6...

And if your car is soooooo bad *** why is it limited to 113mph? My 95 GT w/ 215hp will go 140+... Stock.. Zero mods...

Anywho........... Enjoy your car.......

The 11 plus will easily do 140. Not much of a limiter if that limiter can be lifted. Ford clearly designed the 11 v6 to travel higher than 113 or it would Max out there. No matter if the car was tuned or not.

Aerodynamically speaking, it's around 160 mph top speed.

By the time a 95 v8 hits 140 the 11 v6 will already be at home parked! Lmao.

Again your logic is ill fated. The Dodge V6 is too heavy to get out of its own way and nobody here is comparing the Charger v6 to 60's muscle cars. I was raised on Mopar and you just can't do that. Fact still remains today's V6 Mustang is as fast as most 60's stock Muscle cars in a quarter mile and handles better on a track. Fact remains it is as fast if not faster than all Mustang V8's before it. Say why are you on this forum anyway?

I don't know why people get caught up on the size of your engine determines if the car is a performance type vehicle. A mustang could have a 3 banger. If its putting down 1/4 mile numbers of 13.8 to 14.1 then fast is fast. And all for thousands less than the older v8 models.

It is really quite simple about the original question, the v6 model can easily handle high speeds you just should get proper speed rated tires and a performance tuner to remove speed limiter. If someone feels more comfortable about putting an aftermarket 1 piece aluminum driveshaft that certainly couldn't hurt and it will give that driver the peace of mind
