Gas mileage isn't even changed I don't think.

Not sure why current v6 owners are bummed and talking of trading in for the new ones.

Just my opinion, but I prefer the look of the 05-09 over the 2010+ anyway. Throwing a supercharger on would give you the same car, with a better appearance.

Again, not sure if I am missing something here, but I am not understanding all the fuss.

You have to remember, that 309HP for the V6 is at the engine not to the floor. Ruffly take away 33% and that will be about right with the new V6. At this point... I would love to have the idea of a 300+V6. but after paying for my car and taking car of it... I'm not trading it in... just going to keep it, love it, and supercharge the hell out of it. After all, not too many people are trying to get rid of their 1969 Mustangs.. its a classic... and these 2005-2009 will always be a classic too, because it was the first and start of the retro design to be re-introduce back to the public. Now the 2010s and up are getting too modern in their looks. If technology keep going like it is... don't be surpise in 2020 the V6 has 500HP options. Hey if V8 mustangs in the past where producting about 250HP... then why not for V6? Everyone is looking to save money on gas and the new comers are looking a 4 cyl in V6s as options. Mustang/ Ford has a history of trying to keep the attention of the youth... if they didn't, Mustangs would never been invented... So, thanks DAD and Grandpa...LOL.

Adding insult to injury, quite literally, you have to use premium gas with most forced induction systems, even low-boost ones!
Well actually the 4.0 has a more reliable engine then 2011+ mustangs as far as cracked pistons under boost pressure not true i know plenty of people running sc and turbo kits on a 4.0 v6 stang with 7 to 10 psi boost it has been confirmed that a 4.0 can run at 12 psi boost and be safe at max.
