The 2010 Ford Mustang provides some impressive high-tech touches to go along with its high-performance characteristics. While the base Ford Mustang and the Ford Mustang GT both include the usual standard features, the options list provides some fun surprises that are sure to please buyers looking for a more luxurious Mustang Ford.
Motor Trend points out that all 2010 Ford Mustangs come with "the EasyFuel capless fuel-filler system," which makes the gas station ritual a bit easier. Motor Trend also appreciates that the "cruise control buttons are now joined by audio controls on the steering wheel" of the Ford Mustang, while other Ford Mustang standard features include a full CD sound system with MP3 compatibility.
In addition to the standard features, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the 2010 Ford Mustang offers some almost irresistible options. Car and Driver asserts that two of the more appealing items are the "optional nav system with a huge, eight-inch screen and the latest version of the Ford/Microsoft Sync telematic system," which includes Sirius Travel Link, a feature that provides real-time traffic data. SYNC scores particularly well with reviewers, including those at Automobile Magazine, who claim that it "has an almost supernatural ability to recognize voice commands, an ultrasharp screen, and quite possibly the best iPod and Bluetooth phone integration in the business." Automobile Magazine says that "Premium-package Mustangs also feature Ford's MyColor, which allows the driver to choose from dozens of illumination colors for the gauges, a gauge background bezel, ambient cabin lighting, and ultracool illuminated sill plates." Edmunds reports that "two different interior upgrade packages will be available" on this Mustang Ford, finding that "the Premium package brings leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with aluminum spokes, bright aluminum trim for the dash and ribbed door-panel inserts," while the "Premier package adds higher-grade leather, an aluminum shift knob for the lever of the manual transmission, and the choice of red, blue or 'Cashmere' accent colors."
You can now pile on the useful high-tech conveniences in the 2010 Ford Mustang.
