2011 Ford Mustang V6 DUB Edition – Click above for high-res image

Limited edition Mustangs were all-too-common with the last generation pony car, and Ford has teamed up with DUB magazine and Roush Industries to get the party restarted with the 2011 model.

Based exclusively on the 305-hp V6 'Stang, the DUB Edition is available in coupe, convertible or glass-roof variants, and comes equipped with a Roush front fascia and splitter, quarter window covers, windshield banner, stripe package and a black interior with the DUB logo embroidered into the headrests.

Fittingly for a Mustang fettled by the lifestyle pub, the DUB edition rolls on 20-inch TIS wheels wrapped in Pirelli rubber, with Roush lowering springs dropping the Mustang for a more aggressive stance. Although the engine remains stock, a 3.31 rear axle is fitted out back to provide, in Ford's words, more "spirited acceleration."

Sales of the DUB Edition will begin this fall, with either an automatic or six-speed manual gearbox, and a choice of four exterior colors: Black, Grabber Blue, Ingot Silver or Race Red. Make the jump for all the details.

About the 2011 Mustang V-6
For 2011, Mustang is available with a lightweight, all-new high-performance powerplant. Displacing 3.7 liters, the double-overhead-cam (DOHC) 24-valve V-6 uses Ford's Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) to produce remarkable power output – 305 horsepower and 280 ft.-lb. of torque – while still achieving up to 31 mpg highway.

Drivers can get the most out of the new V-6 engine using either an all-new six-speed manual or automatic transmission. With either choice comes the flexibility and fuel economy benefit of six forward ratios.

The 2011 Mustang has also received enhancements to its chassis to maintain the outstanding balance and driving behavior Mustang owners expect. Combined with state-of-the-art safety and technology features, the 2011 Mustang sets a new standard in the sports coupe class.

      How is DUB still around... The 20 inch rim phenomena is just about over thankfully.
      • 5 Years Ago
      get rid of the hood scoop and give me some 17s up front and 18s in the back and call it a day
        • 5 Years Ago
        psshhhh where's the Red Mist edition?
        • 5 Years Ago
        It's a DUB edition, it's got to have 20's. This isn't for racing, it's for showboating to non-enthusiasts who will just see a "tricked out 'Stang"
        • 5 Years Ago
        Agreed. I'll take the very sweet looking Medium Graphite Metallic V6 Mustang (with Dark Graphite wheels...) from the TV advert over this DUB deal
        • 5 Years Ago
        That's fantastic.

        Tho I really expected a DUB by Chrysler first.

        Oh, wait, that's redundant...

        This would have been fresh and cool in 2003, but the horizontal billet grill and entire DUB brand is completely played out.

        Seriously, I haven't seen a DUB logo on a car less than five years old for about five years. Mostly I see ironic DUB logos, like on the side of a '93 Tempo with steel wheels that's missing a a hubcap and has one plastic spinner.

        I'm sure the quality is good, but Ford missed the DUB bandwagon by almost a decade.

        If someone would photochop this as the FAIL edition I would be impressed.
      • 5 Years Ago
      It's actually not too bad. Definitely better than those Funkmaster Flex editions of stuff they did a while back. I could see a good number of teens/young adults buying one if the price isn't rediculous.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Still not a fan.
      • 5 Years Ago
      From what I can see it looks like typical Ghetto DUB garbage; the whole 20 inch rims and a Hood scoop deal looks tacky as hell for one. I would think most people could do much a lot better just by choosing the right wheel / tire combo and coil over suspension. On top of that you could just utilize your own personal creativity and choose from a variety of different after market body kits, grills, hoods, etc. The end result would most likely be something that looks and certainly PERFORMS a lot better than that ugly piece of none performance enhances POS.

        Mitchel don't questing Eric. The world revolves around him and his tastes.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I think it adds flare to the mustang. Looks nice to me. :D
      • 5 Years Ago
      I kind of like what DUB did to the car. First car they did I really kind of liked?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Mustang is a muscle pony car, not a spinner.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I know I beat this drum once in a while, but.....still with the same lousy side mirrors?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Some of this comments are ridiculous. Some small minded people out there. Like most of you I really don't care for this car or any other "performance car" that is turned into a show car. However..........if it helps Ford sell the car and enables them to keep making performance versions of the car and make sure the Mustang stays viable then by all means.

      We have to realize that everyone buying these things isn't going to try to squeeze every bit of performance out of them. I have been disappointed plenty of times meeting another Mustang owner, sparking up a conversation and finding out their plans to put 26" rims, 15" woofers, etc, etc.....

      Summary: As long as it sells and helps to ensure the Mustang stays around and funds special models like a Boss 302, a new Bullitt, etc. It's all good.
