Launch control* integrates the brakes, traction control and powertrain control to help ensure smooth, consistent starts for all driving conditions. Real-time vehicle performance info is displayed through Track Apps™ on the in-dash LCD screen. This advanced system can help drivers of all skill levels to drive like the pros by providing excellent torque balance, grip and acceleration.

Heated & Cooled Seats
The six-way power-adjustable leather-trimmed driver and front passenger seats in EcoBoost® Premium and GT Premium models are heated and cooled. The driver’s seat includes power lumbar support and available driver memory.
Selectable Drive Modes
Customizable driving preferences let you dial in the handling dynamics you want. Mustang adjusts its handling and response characteristics to optimize control according to your selection. Simply choose your desired driving mode using a toggle switch on the center stack. Normal, Snow/wet, Sport, or Track.
The driver’s seat – set in a low, sporty position – offers abundant travel for comfortable positioning. The steering column manually telescopes and tilts, helping provide a controlled feel. The shifter leaves ample clearance for the controls, while the cupholders are positioned outside of the shift path. You’ll enjoy ample knee room, as well as a left-side footrest (dead pedal) set to the same angle as the accelerator.
Independent Rear Suspension
The 2017 Ford Mustang features an integral link independent rear suspension that helps minimize body roll and isolate road imperfections for a responsive ride and precise handling. Aluminum-alloy rear knuckles and H-arms help reduce unsprung mass. So Mustang has twice as much anti-squat and nearly 10 times the amount of anti-lift for better pitch control during hard acceleration and braking compared with the previous generation.
Track Apps.™ Smoke ’em if you got ’em.
Standard on all models, performance metrics are instantly provided on the 4.2-inch message center in the instrument cluster. Accelerometer displays lateral and longitudinal g-forces, acceleration times plus automatic and countdown starts.
Track Apps features Electronic Line-Lock* (GT and GT350 models only) and Launch Control (GT manual and GT350 only). Electronic Line-Lock keeps front brakes locked while Mustang is in gear to warm up the rear tires. Launch control integrates brakes, traction control and powertrain control to help ensure smooth, consistent starts.
*The Electronic Line-Lock feature should be used only at the track.
BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
The available BLIS® with cross-traffic alert helps make driving more convenient. It uses radar to identify if a vehicle is detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you as you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.
Adaptive Cruise Control and Rain-Sensing Wipers
Available adaptive cruise control functions similarly to traditional cruise control—with one important difference. When the sensors detect traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down based on your pre-set distance. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the set speed.
Collision Warning with Brake Support alerts you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield and provides an audible warning. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
Rain-sensing wipers turn on automatically when rain or snow is detected on the windshield.*
*When automatic setting is enabled.
