The two coyotes I've owned had the most comfortable rides I've ever experienced in a car. I would figure that as long as you don't go track pack you should be ok.

Current : 2013 BLACK GT/CS - 6MT / 3.73 - Gt 500 Quad AB's no resonators, BAMA Tune, Boss Intake Manifold, Lethal ORX, BMR LCA's/Brackets,
C&L CAI, Eibach SportLines, Steeda Hd strut mounts, CravenSpeed Stubby Antenna
Gone but not forgotten : 2012 BLACK Base GT

bUT then you don't get the 3.73 rear end. I don't think you can order that kind of gearing as an stand alone option.

Let's at least keep it in the family and say Ford Fiesta. :hihi:

I was surprised my GT had the refined ride it has, I was expecting a bucking bronco. The only think I think it really needs to be better is dump the crappy Pirellis for good set of Michelins to cut down on the road noise and get some decent foul weather grip.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

Ride usually gets rougher as car ages.

I had a 12 V6 premium and traded it for my 13 GT base, I can tell you with absolute certainty that the GT has a smoother, better ride than my V6 did. Not to say the ride was bad in the 6 just slightly more jarring to ride in you definitely felt the bumps more, both 100% stock.

13 GT base, 3.55, Sterling Grey, MGW shifter, BMR LCA's, GT500 AB, silver RTR's, 275/40/19 Michelin pilot super sports, more stereo equipment than I will admit to, more parts to come.

I test drove a 2013 Mustang GT no trac pac option with 3.31 rear end and it was a little bit jaring ride.

The 2012 Mustang GT with trac pac had those 3.73 rear end. A litle stiff riding not bad but it was new but those 3.73 gears felt so good. Just don't really care for stiff rides anymore coming from a 1988 Mustang GT Fox which are the worst.

The Brembo/Track Pack suspension is still soft and floaty compared to any aftermarket setup.

3.73 is and has always been a stand-alone option.

I you want a comfortable ride and a lot of fun, the 2011+ V6 vert is the ticket. You can drive them 600-700 miles a day with no "pain." A very nice ride in the city with the stock suspension. NOT set up for racing/tight handling....but excellent comfort when cruising

For a new Must. GT then the 3.73 is the way to go.
