Dear Doctor: I own a 2007 Ford Mustang GT with the five-speed manual transmission. I want to either add performance equipment to it or upgrade by purchasing the new 2011 Mustang GT. Have you driven the new Mustang with an automatic transmission? Is the 5.0-liter that much better than my 4.6L? Andrew
Dear Andrew: I drove the new 2011 Mustang 5.0L. With the six-speed automatic and 412 horsepower, the new Mustang has more power and performance than you would believe. A few add-on performance parts right from Ford will make it even better if you want. Ford has done it right with this car’s driveline package.
