I love the new style of the Mustang.

What I can't decide is eco boost or v6.
Power is not a concern for me the way and distance I drive.

Eco is more expensive and with few options goes over the basic GT.


Thank you
Only real advantage of Ecoboost is performance - torque, acceleration etc. Almost same MPG as V6. I think the "best buy" - if you aren't into "performance" is the V6. Actually, the V6 with a few modifications - like one of the aftermarket tunes - is a really fun car. I ran mine at Carolina Motorsports Park road course and had a ball in it. The American Muscle aftermarket "street tune" makes a nice improvement in throttle response and low end performance. I'd do the V6 again and again.
