Wow a classic RWD iconic American sports car that is only half a second quicker than a Cobalt SS/TC for less money and safe for the winter. Ford is such a disappointment, if you want a true OHV pushrod you gotta see the folks over at GM that have kept winning LeMans.

I just watched Randy Pobst set a very quick lap time at the Streets of Willow with the 2013 Mustang V6 in a comparison test against the 2013 Subaru BRZ. This is in the video: Head 2 Head Episode 7. Pobst certainly gets excellent lap times. I would doubt the time, but the Motor Trend video was shown on their TV channel so it must be legit. Right?

Isnt the speed limiter in place to match the max speed rating of the factory tires? I know a lot of car manufactures do that so they can fit them with cheaper tires. My pickup was limited to 116 for this same reason.. without the limiter I can peg the dial at 140.

To remove the limiter from the factory ford would have to put premium tires on all of the V6 trim models which would jack up the price.

First the Charger and Challenger V6 now there's this:
Ford Mustang V6
Actually, i think it's a good idea because you can say you own a Muscle car but it's more economical and cheaper.
Nice!

@Bonilla the top speed of the Mustang V6 is governed at only 114 mph. Ungoverned it would hit 157 mph. Ford's decision to govern the top speed of this otherwise excellent car is a sore point with most enthusiasts. Car and Driver had a frustrating time on every long straightaway at the Virginia International Raceway with the car limited to only 114 mph. Fortunately a simple computer tune on the engine will eliminate the governor, but it really shouldn't be there in the first place.

Top Speed?

@wOoOdy yeah, the Brembo brakes are amazing and certainly up to the task if I ever decide to compete again. I was in fact most successful in SCCA Solo competition in a much lighter, and less powerful car. I had a Neon ACR with 150 hp and less than 2400 lbs without spare tire, jack, floor mats, quarter tank of gas, etc...But I really like the V8 Mustangs power a lot better. The Corvette that I had was not as butoned down handling wise. Way too easy to get snap oversteer exiting corners. The Mustang is more progressive in breakaway, desspite its extra weight, live axle, and narrower rear tires. It is so good I might be tempted to come out of race retirement and run it in SCCA F stock Solo II.

@Viking: if you go in a little fast a less powerful and lighter car might have suited you more, but then again it probably doensn't have the power to counter the understeer with "a boot full" that the v8 has... but i think the v8 might be the better one if only because of the stronger breaking.

Hi wOoOdy, yeah of course I still prefer the over powered V8. And yeah, I tend to over cook corners going in too fast. Although usually I ascribe to the slow in fast out school, especially on real roads. I was just bemoaning the fact that the 5.0 is so darn thirsty. My Corvette got much better gas mileage on the highway. I think that those who choose the V6 are getting a great deal of performance and handling without the extremely thirsty V8.

@Viking: if you get a corner slightly wrong is it because you go in too fast or too slow? That might give you your answer.

Great new lap times. Maybe I should have gotten a V6? I certainly would go farther between fill ups.

Very impressive VIR time for the V6 Mustang. Car and Driver said it would be even better if it didn\'t hit its top speed governor for 15 seconds per lap. I don\'t like governors, especially when the tires are good for a lot faster.

And i herd a little whil ago Hyundai was gonna put a V8 in the Genesis, so it could come to a Possible matchup between the 5.0 and that, So this Ford Mustang V6, vs the Genesis would be a nice little match up. but i still would like too see more high powered V6\'s like these, right now i cant think of any V6\'s,)In the 90\'s that were this powerfull, except for the XJ.

I see

Unless its the 5.0, imma leave it at questionable for me.

I would still take this over a Genesis any day.


User avatar

yes, true true true.

Any part really, Id be glad to own a Genesis, Korean cars arent really at the top of my List, theres really not that many, but the Genesis is a really good looking car, espescially in blue! and its priced nice too.


User avatar

And i think the Genesis turbo 4 cylinder is slow, i think there\'s something you can do to it to make it quick. Like that one performance part can change this cars performance, but what part would that be.


User avatar

From Korea.


User avatar

444  10y ago

lol, oh. I guess the Genesis is the best.


User avatar

BumRush  10y ago

lol dunno prolly like 8mpg lol it is a 680bhp Supercarlol Personally i think the Genesis 3.8T is th ebest car to come from Korea, dont know bout the Spirra.


User avatar

And I don\'t like the Hyundai Genesis.


User avatar

444  10y ago

But what is the mpg of this Jaguar? And I\'d rather have the 5.0 also. But i wouldn\'t mind having this.


User avatar

BumRush  10y ago

Rather have the 5.0 though lol or maybe the Hyundai Genisis 3.8Track. thats quite good. But, i think the King/Queen of all V6\'s, is the Jaguar XJ220S Twr, cant think of a V6 thats more powerfull in a car.....


User avatar

444  10y ago

Its very impressive, and 31mpg is very good also. This is (to me) the best overall v6 engine. Chevy is not going to like these new engines and is probably going to try to make something better.


User avatar

BumRush  10y ago

Yes thats high output power, 300bhp from 6 cylinder naturally aspirated engines arent exactly common these days other than anything than a Porsche, and 300bhp for 20k, i think thats mighty impressive.

good engine , especially torque is impressive for a petrol n/a 3.7 v6
