With its new engine, the Ford Mustang V-6 is no longer the rental cruiser as before; it’s now a worthy rival to the likes of the Nissan 370Z and Hyundai Genesis, although the 370Z still feels lighter, sharper, and more like an all-out sports car.
As for the V-8 Mustang GT, it now feels like more of a serious performance coupe and less of a mere muscle machine.
It’s just as quick as the Camaro SS—perhaps faster by some measures—and we like its rev-happy character and wonderful sound a bit better.
Factor in the improvements in fuel economy, the value for the money, and the reasonably comfortable cabin—plus features like SYNC and MyRide—and the 2011 Ford Mustang looks like a much stronger contender in every way.
