Which model Mustang will have the most comfortable ride
 
this would be on real world roads with pot holes and unmaintained. Just wondering which one will give the best isolation on bad roads.:?:

If ride comfort is your #1 priority, I suggest you get the Corolla model.

All kidding aside, the V6 would have the softest suspension. Seriously, who buys a Mustang for its mushy suspension...

You're going to get different answers from everyone.
For me the base model V6 was too soft and floaty, the performance pkg and my stock brembo pkg are real close and in my opinion probably the most comfortable, now with new suspension I really like the ride but for some its probably too stiff.

aFTER DRIVING A 88 5.0 FOR OVER 24 YEARS I HAVE EARNED IT.:kooky: THAT IS THE SOFTEST SUSPENSION. I SUSPECTED IT WOULD BE THE V-6 MODEL.

I test drove a 2013 Mustang GT with 3.31 rear end no track pack and I like that rev happy engine.

But the 2012 Mustang GT I test drove, I must admit had alot more power so it seemed as it had the 3.73 gears with 6 spd. manual and the trac pac option which would go against having a comfortable ride or a little on the stiff side.

Cobra, what exactly are you wanting to achieve with the car? What are you looking for?

Any base model is a cushy ride

pmr2000 01-08-2013 09:47 AM

Base model or any without lower profile tires than base.

I love my Gt prem. Rides great IMO

RickAKATed10 01-08-2013 02:21 PM

I'm guessing a base v6.

What do you define as comfortable? I hate driving a Toyota Camry personally because it feels like I'm bouncing and floating all over the place.

With that said, I love my V6 Premium's suspension. No performance package, but it is nice, it's smooth and quiet on the highway. Best thing to do is test a base, test a performance package (or track pack) equipped one and see what feels better. If you go to a good dealer, like near me, they let you take it on the highway, at slow speeds, and try it out to really get a feel for the car and if you like it.

My dealer told me to floor it! On I-30! See I bought a base, and personally it's way too mushy. Having said that, I bought a base with the full intention of putting coilovers on the car.

With gasoline prices of 4.40 per gallon here the Mustang V6 will be the model to go with.

Define comfortable?

Not loud? Bumpy?


The non PP v6 stang will have a nice soft ride. I think even my GT has a firm ride. But if you're going over a bumpy road, that's where you'll feel that SRA no matter what version Mustang you have. It's not too bad as people make it out to be.

If you are worried about the price of gas,don"t get a Mustang, get a Honda Civic:laughlitt
