2009 LA Auto Show: 2011 305HP V6 Mustang

Posted December 08, 2009 6:00 AM by CarDomain

There are plenty of enthusiasts that sneer at the V6 Mustangs, and consider them to be just a lamer version of the GT. But the 2011 V6 Mustang will come stock with a burly 305HP and 280ft-lbs of torque — which is within spitting distance of the current GT. Ford also believes the new Pony will get 30MPG on the freeway, which would make it the most fuel efficient car in its class. Any way you look at it, that's pretty impressive.

The Blue Oval had two 2011 Mustang Club of America Editions in its booth at the show, a red convertible and the slick silver version above. The sheet metal is the same as the current gen, but the special edition models feature a billet grill, tape stripes (absent on the silver coupe), special badging, and — um, finally —body-colored mirrors. Check out some pics and walk-around videos after the jump.
