2007 Focus Duratec 2.0L VS. 2004 Mustang V6

Would the Focus beat the Mustang? I used to have a NICE black 04 Mustang, but hydroplaned and totaled it out. Now I have the Focus and everyone tells me it'll beat my late Mustang. Is this true?

On a power to weight standpoint you're pretty evenly matched, assuming stock for stock (most mods will yield better gains on a V6.)

The Mustang will hands-down win in straight line with RWD but you'd hammer the Mustang in auto-x unless you're up against a really good driver and give it a run for its money on a road course, at least if the course is evenly split between turn and straight.

focus 136/136
mustang 190/220
2700 pounds vs 3400???

interesting race, and i cant believe the mid 90s v6s only push out 150 hp!!! thats crazy and the v8s only push out 215 hp and 290 of tq at 3300

so whats the chances of a slightly modded focus beating a 97 v8 mustang?

I know something for sure, a 2000+ Gran Prix v6 can easily beat a stock focus, even if a woman is behind the wheel of the Prix. Is not that it happened to me, but once I saw friend of one of my friends doing that lol!!!!
