Instead of blunt trauma, the Ford Mustang GT uses many pieces of technology. Ford honed this sledgehammer into an ax. Still big, and heavy, but with more precision, and tree cutting power.
As stated in the review of the 2019 Ford Mustang GT, the brand has entered into some sort of renaissance with regard to technology in its entire lineup. So here is a full rundown on all the technology and safety features found in this flagship pony car from Ford.
What’s included: Sync 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 12-speaker Bang and Olufsen Audio System, 12-inch digital gauge cluster, Ambient light through Ford MyColor, driving mode and Steering mode selector, parking sensors in the front and rear, backup camera, heated and cooled seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and active valve exhaust system.
We like a lot of things about the Mustang, but there are just a few omissions that we believe can be minor annoyances from time to time. When you pay big money for a premium car from Ford, you may expect only the best from the blue oval.
In this regard, there are many premium features that we feel make this car a delight to own and drive. You’re fully covered with your infotainment system and will be hard-pressed to change anything. Ford has pretty much given its consumers a complete package in terms of future-proofing. Whether you’re on Apple or Android, expect full coverage in terms of your media and navigation. The audio system was great. Paired with the subwoofer at the back, you can expect your songs to thump.
Playing with the different features of this car makes you feel special. You can make it more special since Ford lets you customize what color you want your ambient lighting to come in. This Mustang GT is in Orange Fury, so we thought it would be appropriate to change the interior colors to orange, for that seamlessness.
Since the gauge cluster is all-digital, that means that you can also see your favorite colors in the gauge cluster as well. You can even change the layout of the cluster. From all-encompassing to focused, since it changes depending on the drive mode you select.
And thanks to the active valve exhaust system, you can be as quiet or as loud as you want to be. This just seals the deal when it comes to the Mustang’s identity.
What you won’t like: Manual reclining seats, no speed sensing door locks, and no blindspot monitoring
We have just these two bones to pick about the Mustang. Speed-sensing door locks are important especially in this premium segment of cars. It’s a bad omission. You don’t pay a premium lock the door yourself, but you do pay a premium for everything else that we love with this two-door.
You do have power seats, but without the power recline functions. This is because you have to make do with a latch behind the backrest in order for you to access the rear seats without having to move your seating position.
Safety: Everything you need to coral 460 horses
What’s included: 7 airbags, anti-lock brake system, electronic brakeforce distribution, advanced traction control, stability control, adaptive cruise control, active braking, lane keep assist, and pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection
The car has the ability to help prevent accidents, as well as keep you protected if the need arises. The seven airbags that it has embedded into its various panels include, the driver’s and passenger’s, side, curtain, and knee airbags.
In order to prevent accidents, Ford has given you a full suite of assists and aids in order to keep you and everyone around you, safe from harm. The Mustang is smart and is able to sense when objects are getting too close for comfort. Adaptive cruise control, active braking, lane keep assist, and pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection will help you keep to yourself and away from harm’s way.
Driving the Ford Mustang was quite scary at first, but I was able to trust the advanced traction control system along with ABS with EBD, and stability control. These standard features helped me overcome my fears of riding a powerful car. Going through the corners weren’t a problem after the kilometers and corners passed.
