I drove a 2011 v6 with the performance package. I hate to break the news to anyone but there’s no way the new V6 could even come close to keeping up with my 2008 GT. I have a CAI and a Breenspeed tune and its torque curve and pull is much stronger and in a better place in the rpm band.

I know what the advertisements, magazines and stats say about the new v6 but... not a chance it would keep up with my mostly stock 08 GT.

If you want the faster of the two choices you named, buy a 4.6 GT 05-09 and enjoy..

I have a 5.0 ordered, but my 08 GT is still a very quick car with a million speed mods available to make it even faster..

No intention here to bash our new 2011 v6 owners. Im sure they will be lots of fun to drive!
