V6 vs Turbo

When driving down the street what's the best way to differentiate V6 and Turbo models? Thanks

You mean the Ecoboost? It looks like on the v6 Decklid there is a Tri-Bar Pony emblem, and on the ecoboost there is just a running pony. That's about the only thing different that I can tell, unless you pop the hood lol.

What about the GT?

That is a good eye on the difference between the Eco and the V6.

They really made the V6, Eco, and GT look almost identical this time around...

Past Mustangs in order and color of text.
(1.)2000, (2.)2004, (3.)2006GT/Auto traded for (4.)2006GT/Manual, (5.)1996, (6.)2011GT, (7.)2003GT, (8.)2006GT, (9.)
2013 Boss 302, and (10.) 2002GT (I have owned a few non Mustang cars over the years as well, but always try to have a Mustang with it or come quickly back to a Mustang!)

Thanks Drizziie, yes ecoboost not turbo. I knew there had to be some differences but couldn't figure it out. GT was pretty obvious to me

Coyote sounds, GT drivers seem to like the loud pedal

I believe the V6 doesn't have driving lights either.

If you order the 051A option on a V6, you get driving lights, 18" wheels, spoiler, and power drivers seat.

The G.T. has G.T. on the rear of the car instead of the running pony or another emblem.

Drizziie,
Good eye, I didn't notice the difference between the running horse and tri bar horse. I like the tri bar better I think.

Never noticed that either, but I am not seeing a lot of 2015 Mustangs my way. Ive seen maybe 5 others. All Eco or V6 (dont know which).

2015 Mustang V6. The 'Go' came from the factory. Working on the 'Show' part.

So Cal seems to be buying a lot of 2015's. Now that I can tell the difference most are ecoboost, then GT's, and V6 verts (rental cars?)

The GT can also be identified in front by heat extractors on the hood.
