If you’re in the market for a new, 2011 Ford Mustang vehicle, you’ll be well served to read up on several different review sites in order to determine which of the various types of Mustang is best designed to meet your needs. The 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT provides a smooth ride with excellent torque, horsepower and great MPG rating. However, the 2011 Ford Mustang V6 is also a powerful car with a number of different attractive qualities too. Read on for a brief comparison of the two.
2011 Ford Mustang V6
The 2011 Ford Mustang V6 is a powerful car that has a sleekly
designed engine. Although the engine itself doesn’t feature direct
injection, any sort of supercharged or turbocharged capabilities, it is
still capable of incredible power. It has been rated to 305 horsepower
in tests. Additionally, the engine is made more efficient and the car
faster by reducing the weight of the internal systems; all of the
engine parts are made from aluminum in the new 2011 Ford mustang V6.
This helps the vehicle to achieve not only maximum power on a V6
engine, but also to maintain the enviable mileage rating of 30 miles
per gallon for an automatic transmission. Finally, there are dual
independent cams on each side of the engine that operate on a
technological system that is quite advanced, giving the engine the
best flexibility and power of any V6 that Ford has produced to date.
2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT
The 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT is an exceedingly powerful car. Rated to
412 horsepower and with 390 foot-pounds of torque, this vehicle
outshines the V6 vehicle above in terms of overall power. However, due
to the fact that it has a larger, 5 liter engine, this car receives
lower mileage ratings; 25 miles in the highway, 17 miles per gallon in
the city. Like the Ford Mustang V6, it also achieves these impressive
numbers without any direct injection, supercharger or turbocharger
capabilities. Although it’s not entirely made out of aluminum, like the
engine in the V6, the 5.0 GT engine has many aluminum parts that are
designed with anti friction capabilities to make it operate as smoothly
as possible. Finally, the 5.0 GT has electrical power to assist with
the steering capabilities for added comfort and ease of handling.
The MSRP for the 5.0 GT is considerably higher than that of the V6,
as you pay for the additional power. Between that difference and the
difference in gas mileage, the V6 is a better car for people who operate
on a somewhat limited budget. However, for the truly powerful option
of the two, it’s best to go with the 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT.
