2011 Ford Mustang V6 2dr Coupe (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


In fall of 2010 I bought a 2011 GT with the Brembo package and 3.73 gears.
This spring I traded that car for one with standard 18" wheels and 3.31 rear.
What a difference!
The suspension on the Brembo package handled well, but the ride beat you up.
Plus, the summer-only tires had to be taken off for the winter, even in NC.
The 3.73 gears gave great acceleration, but made for too much noise on the highway; first gear was superfluous. The newer car rides nicely, and still handles well.
With the 3.31 gears you give up some acceleration but get a relaxed cruiser, up to 30 mpg.
So, consider your options carefully before you buy.

Best Features

Worst Features

Console compartment flips open when you rest your arm on it Leg room is a bit tight for me at 6'3" Standard headlights don't have much reach on low beam
