Smarter Than Your Average Pony
Delivering a great driving experience is all about keeping the driver in control. In addition to the fundamentals of proper seating, control today also means making technology available to enhance the drive – whether it’s a daily commute, extended road trip or weekend track day.
Rather than having to settle for a one-size-fits-all technology solution, Mustang drivers will have the ability to tune their individual car to their driving style and road conditions. With available Selectable Drive Modes, the driver can quickly adjust steering effort, throttle response, shift control and stability control settings by toggling between normal, snow-wet, sport and track modes.
In addition to the four preset modes, drivers can fine-tune the steering effort separately with standard, comfort and sport settings. The new Ford stability control system can also be set to a less intrusive sport mode or turned off entirely for track use.
Standard and available technology features of the 2015 Ford Mustang include:
