Thanks for posting. Watched the first 10 mins or so.

I'd like to sit in one on a sunny day and view the screens. The intensity of the readouts I'm sure can be adjusted (Selectable auto-adjust feature, Ford?). Reflections are a concern, but I believe this can be alleviated with a clear matte wrap (as seen in the aftermarket for other vehicles), protecting from scratches at the same time.

Nice review. But "what was Ford thinking" with the standard GT wheels? A bonanza for the aftermarket wheel companies....

Two cup holders but one phone slot….[stack ‘em?] Yes, minor detail, too late now. although usually it does come up when both cup holders are being used.

What are your thoughts on the wheels? You gonna stick with them or maybe swap out? Do you find then too bright in person or do they seem ok?

FWIW, I did, yes. I think the car would show way better with a darker or more subdued color of wheel.

Do you have to ‘press’ the buttons or are they touch toggles, as in just set your finger on one?

Another minor bit (probably just me though). Window stickers on the rear window(s), please. Test drives with half visual blocked is a real pain in the …

Is the single display perpendicular or does it by chance have a lower section slight inward tilt?

edit: not meaning curved but meaning more of a 95 degree tilt toward the driver vs 90

Oh, and by the way. I appreciate the review without all the wiz bang pow zap zing and what not. Let the product speak for itself, good job. 👍🏻

I love the review! I am just hoping that I will not be let down purchasing the EcoBoost. The V8 seems like the way to go if you really want that power. Probably worth the extra dough!

I am a first time buyer of the Mustang as I always wanted one my whole life. After seeing this video, I almost want to change my mind and go with the V8. But economically the price for me was telling me to stay with the EcoBoost!

For the buttons that replaced the toggle switches I assume? All the videos have talked about how you actually press it in slightly because the entire panel moves when you do. Kinda cheaper out on that part did ya @fordmotorcompany?!?!?!

I have a 2019 ecoboost. First mustang I’ve owned, and I’m getting the V-8 this time around if that says anything…..don’t get me wrong it’s a great little car. Still has some zip, but the sound just doesn’t feel mustang”y” even with the active exhaust in track mode all day. It sounds ok when you are getting on it at 4000 rpm….but at idle it sounds like a Honda.

Yeah that’s what I’m asking about, just wondering if it’s ‘user error’ and if you really need to push the ‘whole panel’ or if it responds to a tap touch.

I couldn’t give a answer just yet. Mines en route to NC as we speak. But it appears to NOT be a simple touch sensitive panel and requires some light force to “push” the intended selection
