2010 Mustang GT Vs. 2011 Mustang V6




What do you think about this video?

inbigfootsbackyard: has anyone that is badmouthing the 3.7 drove one. im really impressed with the sound and power they have. yes got 2011 3.7 

Gothic Barry: Believe it or not, but I bought my V6 Mustang because i actually drive it on the roads and not on some stupid 1/4 mile straight piece of asfalt. So yeah, a V8 might be a bit faster. It still doesn't mean that a V6 is a slow car by far. And sure... A V8 is louder than a V6 (if you keep them both stock). Now this might come as a shocker, but I didn't buy my V6 because I wanted it to beg for attention as I'm driving by. I personally have enough selfconfidence to not need a loud exaust for that. This ''It has to be a V8 to be a Mustang''-bullcrap always makes me laugh, cause in a way it points out 'the American way' of thinking: "If it's bigger - it's better.'' And what's even funnier is when many V8 owners automatically think that just because they have a V8 it makes them a better driver. Hate to burst your bubbles, but... NOPE, it doesn't. And to all the V8 owners who drive automatic and act like they are 'king of the road' and talk down to V6-owners I can only say 1 thing:"1st stop driving the handicapped way and learn how to drive like a real car enthusiast should." (Since driving automatics is mostly just done in the rest of the world by handicapped, old or extremely lazy people.) And don't give me that ''Automatics are faster on the strip''-kinda bullcrap, because cars were not meant to drive straight for a 1/4 mile over and over again. 

Nick Gers: well there was a women driving the v6 soo cut it some slack

burnzillablue: 4.6 Junk. Good riddance.

DONDIVA1969: People have become spoiled. Off the showroom floor the Mustang 3.7L V6 does the 1/4 mile quicker than 1 - 1970 Ram Air IV GTO 2 - 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 3- 440 GTX, Road Runner, 'Cuda and Challenger 4 - 1969 Mustang 428 CJ and a crapload of other vintage muscle cars.

Wisconsin Wildman: Tune, intake, and exhaust on the V6 and it would beat the GT. The new 3.7 liter is pretty quick miles ahead of the old 4.2 V6.

Jessica Bennett: All that extra money for a couple milliseconds put 4 grand in that v6 and the 2010 gt is lookin at that sexy v6 ass by 3 lengths lol

TheRising Sun: Nope. The 2010 gt has only 10 more hp than the 2011 v6, has just a bit more torque, and is heavier.

wadefa1: THATS SUCH BULLcrap..THAT GT WOULD OF BUSTED THAT SLOW ASS V6 HAND DOWN

camopaint0707: was this the 315 hp GT?

David Seidel: Not bad at all for a 305HP V6. The only reason the V8 really won was due to 1. better gear ratio (3.31 V8 vs 2.73 V6), more HP/TQ (315 HP/325LB TQ V8 vs 305HP/280LB TQ V6). I think the reason the V6 kept up was due to weighing less by about 250-300lbs and having the 6 speed vs the 5 speed. I'm sure if you slapped a 3.31 gear ratio in the 2011 V6 it would beat the 2010 V8 no questions asked.

John Pilsitz: Its because the V6 was piloted by a female that can't drive I beat GTs all day in mine

lopez12345ml: shut that gay ass music

Adam M: Great comparison video im guessing they are both auto trans? Horrible background music lol

ahmed nassar: The thing is for the v6 to get as close to the v8 is pretty expressive may I say!! Ford did good on this one

wf80: tl;dr The 2010 V8's gotta nicer sounding exhaust note, has better front/rear styling and it's faster. Did I mention it's faster, but the 2011 V6 hangs in there a close 2nd. Not too bad overall, plus the V6 gets 7 more mpg highway because of the 6th gear. They're both quick, agile and handle like a champ. Bottom line is, if you're going for the thrill of a Mustang, you gotta get the V8! 

francisco pimentel: It's a damn pony car

gdpone0101: Jesus Christ who cares. If we all the had the money we would definitely buy V8s. Pretty much no one buys the V6 because they had enough for the 8, but just wanted the 6. The new V6s are nice, but so are the V8s. Also in the end there is ALWAYS someone faster.

Bruce Lee: if you concerned about MPG get a Toyota prius, that's what their made for. leave the v6 out of the mustang, ruins the whole point of it being a "muscle car"

John Pilsitz: It's all about how you drive, and my V6 has a few bolt on mods, against a stock GT with an in experienced driver ( which most are ) I get the jump on them, and if you calculated acceleration timing you will realize that it's true , just research it, not hiding or BSing anyone

Spartan-86: Either of these would smoke my whopping 215hp 1996 GT... But I still love it, and all Mustangs. 

V6stangman2007: Also the v6 has a weight advantage already with the back seats, etc. and really the original mustang was an inline 6. So the v6 is truer to the original than the v8's ever were. Plus the mustang is not neccassarily a muscle car, it's a pony car. Lightweight, handling car, that's quick.

misterd717: its always good to have options to accomodate different preferences, the mustang is an everymans car. wanna look good drivin around, but dont care for the extra grunt, v6 is your ticket, want that muscle, the sound, and that visceral feeling when you mat the pedal, v8 is for you. everything is better with options to suit everyones needs. 

francisco pimentel: Ok for those of you who think the mustang is a muscle car are retarded. Look it up

Wisconsin Wildman: I have seen the Ford Taurus SHO with the 3.5L Ecoboost tuned and it eats the current 5.0s in the new GTs for lunch.

tshirt87: I don't race, I don't track therefore I bought my V6 Mustang for the complete opposite reasons a V8 owner would. I want a V6 that doesn't mean I want a Toyota Camry and there are millions of others just like me! Ford will not be banishing the economy motor anytime soon nor have they since 1965. If you want V8 exclusivity and think the V6 is a joke buy a corvette, it's never had a V6. The 2011 V6 is fast, handles great and looks amazing.

Francisco Barrera: i have a 2013 v6... i wish i could afford a 2013 5.0... i had a 97 mustang gt and the sound of a bigger engine is just more appealing... i miss my gt.. the real muscle car sound.. i also had a 98 v6.. now those sucked ass lol!! so slow... and a 06 v6 that was slow as well... im a mustang lover, ive had 4 total. any ways im a college student.. the higher payment, insurance and gas for a v8, and it does make a difference. i budget myself and i simply cant afford! im content, for now. but why can't people just appreciate the cars. 2011+ v6 good engineering put to work 305hp. i dont consider it a muscle car, its a pony car and its great for daily driving considering its hp. hopefully later on in life i can get a shelby or boss! whoever says they would rather have a v6 is lying! i want a v8 i just simply cant afford it...

jerry jsp: i have the Gt and im happy with it i know one thing that v6 should not go in a mustang y bc i know it wont sound the same first off 2 when you open the hood y the hell would you be happy to show off a v6 and 3 im sure you can do a lot more with a v8 then a v6

Juan Hernandez: 2010 GT

Ethan Jarrell: i love how everyone keeps posting "just do (cheap modification) and it can probably beat the gt" well not if that guy woth the gt also decides to put mods too, then what?

onefilipinoy: That v6 was pulling towards the end but the gt let off and the race ended. 

Micah Myricks: People get v6 Mustangs because they want them. A real car guy/ girl would never make fun of anyone and their car. Yeah they may have different styles but they both share something--a passion for their car. These new v6 motors can push out a lot of power, it's just new technology. Don't get me wrong, I love a v8 but these new v6 motors are a force to be reckoned with. The average joe would who would probably never do anything more than intake, headers, and exhaust followed by a nice 93 octane tune would definitely love the v6 or the v8. I'd opt for the v6 just because its different, lighter, and it sounds unique.

Steve Kern: A V6 almost as good as the V8 from the previous year? Wow! Not too shabby.

TooManyChoices1: V8 are for the pansy boys. V 12 or nothing!!! See how stupid that sounds. This coming from a person that could have bought a 2010 GT premium, a 5.0 premium, base 5.0, but settled for the V6 to get my rear wheel drive manual sports coupe legs first. Get what makes you happy, and drive it like you stole it lol! The 2010 GT is closer than some would think to the v6. .1-.2 difference stock with Performance pack v6 and stock 2010 GT in the 1/4m. The V6 needs Gears, similar tires and a tune, and they will run similar. And yes there are differences between individual gears, and final drive. So with the torque and HP advantage of the GT, the 6 speed automatic still needs 4.10 to keep up with the earlier torque curve of the 2010 GT, but the higher revving 2011+V6 stays in peak HP longer. Makes for a very good comparison of a high revving v6 vs. torque carrying GT. the automatic V6 is a pig without a tune, and gears:^\

V6stangman2007: I never understood why people dog us v6 owners so much. U can make v6's easily beat gt's, and just because u have a gt doesn't automatically make u a good driver. I've beat gt's cause the freaking idiots couldn't shift and they miss 3rd. That's actually happened to two separate guys I've raced. 

19DaRiO95: ford did alot of bullcrap.. for example the mustang 3.8 V6 with 142hp... the new genesis coupe makes more than twice as much and its also a naturally aspired engine. hahahaha

RedLS Rocketx: What did his comment say?

Reuben Joyner: Out dated isn't a year older. My 67 f100 runs all over 4.6 till there's a curve nuthin like a 427 on the weekend and a 3.7 on the daily drive.

kingssuck06: Do you realize the V6 has a 4.26 ratio in 1st gear? That helps an extreme amount with the 2.73's, the GT has a 3.15 gear ratio, and with 3.31's the advantage actually goes to the V6. There is much more to gearing than whats in the rear end. Could it be the fact the GT has about 40 more ft/lbs of torque? Ever think of that?

Kris Demers: Looks about right. I don't miss the 4.6's though

Jason Phillips: First, not being sexist, but young female v6, 40 something male in gt? Second, i own 2012 v6 bassani catbacks, k&n on stock intake, custom tune and ecm by friend, ford mechanic, who won't reveal the tune. Roush wheels 275 - 35 - 20 cooper zeon. (4) All stock 4.6's don't come close. Also beats r/t + srt8 Dodge (not such a) challenger, Gto 6.0's, 2005 (not blown) saleen mustang, 2014 (blown) civic si - very slow. But new 5.0's beats me by a hood length every time - that close.

YTmurphy: One thumb down for idiotically loud music, and another one for music at all.

breedr77: most people do only consider the HP of a car. seldom do they consider other things like torque, or what the entire power band looks like.

08Revelator: umm...Let the girl drive the GT....than we might have a race

kingssuck06: I could watch 100,000,000 videos a day and you would still be a bigger homo than me. Your a 40 + year old man and your on a youtube page all day every day raving about how fast your V6 mustang the official transport for high school girls all around. Go freak yourself

giantenemycrabX: tip: when filming car races, don't cover up car noises with music

300horsepower: I would take that gt for its acceleration response the 6 gear from v6 is rarely going to be used.

William91TP: LOL did this dude just say 31 MPG on a V6 stang really man thats over rated its 27 at best.

ALPHADOG3: dude you upload cartoons on to youtube, lol and I'm an internet racer? lol

nurev187: now swap drivers
