2015 Ford Mustang is laden with several advanced technologies

Article by Christian A., on March 27, 2014

Ford Motor Co. has just built “the most technologically advanced Mustang,” according to Scott Lindstrom, Ford’s driver assist technologies manager. Indeed, the redesigned Mustang comes with new technologies aimed at boosting its global appeal. The 2015 Mustang is armed with a standard backup camera and push-button ignition as well as a cross-traffic alert that warns drivers of oncoming traffic while backing out of parallel and perpendicular parking spaces.

The Mustang also features forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control. Drivers of the redesigned Mustang could now monitor the pressure of each tire on the instrument cluster and select over four selectable driving modes that suits them best. The Mustang will be the first Ford vehicle that comes with the next generation of the AppLink smart phone connectivity system. “Mustang has always been a great car, always had a big V-8, always been fun to drive, but as we looked to make it a truly global sports car we recognized we really had to add some technology,” Lindstrom said during a Mustang tech briefing.

Steve Ling, Ford car marketing manager, remarked that the technology on the 2015 Mustang is all driver-focused. Ford has also given a global touch to the vehicle’s Track Apps feature, which a set of applications in the instrument cluster that gathers performance data, adding a metric system translator.

Track Apps comes standard in the Mustang EcoBoost and GT versions. Jon Ohland, a Ford electrical systems engineer, said Track Apps allows driver to see how the vehicle is performing as well as when the Mustang’s performance is degrading or improving. The 2015 Mustang goes on sale in the fall.
