Powered by the same 305-horsepower all-aluminum Ti-vct V6 as the new 2011 Ford Mustang, the Performance Suite takes advantage of the new engine's lightweight and high-revving nature to deliver a nimble performance vehicle equally at home on a road course or a road trip.

The new Performance Suite provides on quickly, fun and cheap, combining the all-new 2011 V6 with Ford Mustang GT prowess, explained Dave Pericak, Ford Mustang chief nameplate engineer. It's a true sports vehicle for the new generation and a smart choice for the environmentally-conscious enthusiast. It is a ideal marriage of performance, performance and value.

Borrowing from the Ford Mustang GT, the Performance Suite contains numerous suspension, braking and body stiffening upgrades to deliver unparalleled handling performance. That road-holding is helped by a near-equal front/rear weight distribution, providing exceptional transient response along with the car's slimmed-down curb weight of less than 3500, pounds.
