Default Guys...

Am I crazy. Im 99.9% sure I am going to trade in my GT for a new 2011 V6. I cannot afford a 2011 GT for if I could I would!!! However the new 2011 V6 ran a 13.6 at 104 MPH STOCK on street tires!! It also gets 31 MPG highway and thats all my commute consists of. It has a warranty. I can get a 6 speed, Grabber blue OR Racer Red (Need to see BOTH in person before i make my final decision but pretty sure GB will win), and Ill put the Roush front facia and be done with it really.

Am I crazy? GT to a V6?!?! I never though I would hear that day.

Im with you , Im trading in my 04 GT to get one. I went and talked to a dealer today. I need a daily driver with better gas milage and that 3.7 is calling me, I was going for a new Fusion sport but opted for the new mustang instead.

and you could spray your heart away or get your custom turbo for that car instead of this one. but i'd say go for it other than the sound that its going to make and the rpm youre gonna have to crank it to to get that power. but it sounds like a solid car man.

Yeah the V6's aint for the baby mama's nomo !

I will be getting the bone stock basic package with the lighted floor boards, that way I can give it a full custom look that I want. After I move I will be attaining a nice fox to build .

I just read the review of the '11 GT and V6 in Motor Trend today, and that sixxer is damn impressive. I'd rock one for sure. Couldn't trade my V8 for it, but you have different (and justifiable) reasons for making the move, whereas my car is pretty much only a weekend warrior. I'm excited and bummed at the same time that the new V6 could give everybody here with a full bolt on GT such a run for the money in terms of acceleration. Hopefully the aftermarket embraces this engine like they do the V8's; there could be a real crop of V6 monsters out there soon.
