|2013 Ford Mustang GT And V6 Upgrades And Improvements
America's pony car never stops improving, always receiving the latest technology and engineering excellence to delight customers. For 2013, the Ford Mustang V6 and GT receive updated exterior design touches, performance enhancements and new technology such as a 4.2-inch LCD productivity screen to monitor vehicle performance. Updated audio systems and new lighting features also make an appearance.
4.2 inch color LCD
Located in the instrument cluster between the speedometer and tachometer, the screen allows drivers to access information related to vehicle performance. Navigate through the menu with a five-way button on the steering wheel. In addition to the basics like fuel economy and trip meter, gauge mode provides information on vehicle functions like oil temperature, air/fuel ratio and cylinder head temperature. Track Apps allows for instant measuring of g forces and acceleration times, and displays braking performance.
Both the Mustang GT and V6 get standard HID headlights for 2013 including two individual LED bars in the headlamp assembly. The Mustang GT also gets LED foglamps.
A more powerful design features a significantly more prominent grille, a dominant splitter and functional heat extractors on the hood of the Mustang GT.
New body color fascia, dramatic LED taillamps with smoked lenses and gloss black appliqué bring it all together.
For 2013 the Ford Mustang features body color painted rocker panels for a premium appearance
A revamped wheel lineup, ranging from the standard 17-inch wheels for V6 all the way up to 19-inch optional wheels on the GT, offers updated designs and finishes.
SelectShift Automatic transmission
This advanced transmission control strategy offers the driver a choice between fully automatic operation and manual control, activated with a selector button on the side of the shifter.
Designed to enhance the high-performance driving experience, the optional Recaro® seats are available in both cloth or leather-trimmed on V6 and GT.
For improved clarity and sound crispness, two new audio systems debut. The optional Shaker system comes with eight speakers and pumps out 370 watts of power. The upgraded Shaker Pro offers nine speakers, delivers 550 watts of power and features a slimmer subwoofer.
Mirrors With Pony Projection Lighting
The unique lamp casts the shape of the Mustang emblem on the ground when the unlock button is hit. Mirrors also are heated for 2013.
Hill Start Assist
Debuting on manually equipped Mustangs, the feature helps keep the car from rolling backward, making it easier to pull away when on a slope or hill.
Available only on manual GT Mustangs with a 3.73 axle, the new package gives track enthusiasts an engine oil cooler, upgraded radiator, performance friction brake pads and the same Torsen differential that's on the Mustang Boss 302.
