It's no secret we dig the 2011 Mustang. The new 412HP 5.0-liter V8 made a decent pony car coherent. This ad, however, features the 31MPG, 305HP V6 dressed in dark gray with black wheels. It looks... awesome. We're now conflicted.


When push comes to shove, which one would you pick? The V6 is a great car but the V8 is, well, a V8 and gets all those extra trotting ponies. With the track-pack the new V6 is a hoot to drive, more affordable and gets up to 31 MPG in a fantasy-land where you don't mash the gas and row through all six gears like a maniac hunting the next corner to drift. In fact it's almost as powerful as the outgoing V8 and lighter to boot. But it isn't a V8. This is why life is hard.
