For the 2013-14 model, the front end of the car offers a more aggressive design with a significantly more prominent grille. A more powerful splitter adds to the appearance. Functional heat extractors on the bonnet of the GT are specifically placed and designed to help move hot air out of the engine compartment and cool the engine.
Rocker panels running along the car are now body-colour, adding a more premium look. The rear of the car has been updated with a high-gloss black panel that connects the taillamps. Keeping the sequential turn signal Mustang is known for, the taillamps have a smoked appearance that matches the more purposeful look up front.
New design elements include standard high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps. Three high-tech LED bars form the iconic rear lights. Signature lighting plays into the technology upgrades, with two individual light-emitting diode bars accentuating the headlamps.
The new Mustang offers a revamped wheel lineup, ranging from standard 18-inch wheels up to 19-inch optional wheels on the GT. With updated designs, the wheels also offer new finishes and touches for a more powerful appearance. The standard 18-inch painted-aluminium wheel on both GT and premium GT is an evolution of the five-spoke design. The 19-inch optional GT wheel comes with a gloss-black finish with machined face for a more sinister look, while the wheel for Brembo and Track Packages offers an updated 10-spoke dark stainless-painted aluminium. The new car offers optional heated mirrors with a pony projection light, which casts the image of Mustang’s famous pony emblem on the ground when the unlock button is activated. New colours, Deep Impact Blue and Gotta Have It Green, join the existing sporty colours for 2013-14.
New on 2013-14 GT coupes are optional leather-trimmed or cloth Recaro seats that are currently available on the Shelby GT500 and Boss 302. Designed to enhance the high-performance driving experience, lateral bolsters in the cushion and seat back are used to ensure drivers have the support needed on the track during hard cornering and to deliver a comfortable ride. The seats come complete with integrated head restraints with ample room for drivers and passengers wearing helmets on the track. Openings on the seat back are designed for customers looking to create performance setups for track days. The Recaro seats are the result of a global team effort led by SVT along with the Mustang engineering group in North America, Team RS in Europe and Recaro.
A new available 4.2-inch LCD productivity screen that lets customers access information related to fuel economy and vehicle performance also makes its debut on Mustang. The screen is navigated through a five-way control button located on the steering wheel and offers Track Apps, which delivers performance metrics for drivers right from the factory. The app measures g-forces, shows acceleration times in quarter-mile and 0-60 increments, and displays braking times, complete with automatic and countdown starts. Two new audio systems delivering incredible clarity and sound crispness for even better sound quality are now available for Mustang. The Shaker system offers eight speakers while the Shaker Pro offers nine speakers for a premium, stage-like listening experience. Customers can use SYNC® AppLink, which is a factory-installed feature on Mustang. AppLink is the free software program that gives SYNC users voice control of apps stored on their smartphone.
An available new 4.2-inch liquid crystal display (LCD) productivity screen positioned between the tachometer and speedometer helps customers track information related to fuel economy and vehicle performance. The menu is navigated through a five-way button on the steering wheel.
Unique to Mustang’s productivity screen is Track Apps, which delivers performance metrics for drivers who want to put their car to the test at the track.
An accelerometer shows the g force the car is pulling from left to right. Drivers can also track their fastest times with the acceleration timer screen, which offers 0-30 mph, 0-60 mph, 0-100 mph, eighth-mile and quarter-mile. Both an automatic start and a countdown start, complete with drag racing start light, are available.
420hp 5.0L V8
The 2013-14 Mustang maintains the outstanding balance and driving behaviour Mustang owners expect, but with new technologies and packages for enhancement. The 5.0-litre engine will now deliver 420hp (313kw). Based on learnings from developing the high-output 444-horsepower Mustang Boss 302, the team was able to adapt several of the designs to the 5.0-litre.
The new Mustang can be specified with a six-speed SelectShift Automatic™ transmission. This advanced control strategy offers the driver a choice between fully automatic operation and manual control. The system is controlled with a selector button on the side of the shifter. The shifter has been upgraded for 2013 with a more modern style and improved accessibility.
Unlike some competitive transmissions, SelectShift won’t second-guess the driver with an override shift. With SelectShift, manual control is truly manually controlled, allowing the driver to hold a gear right up to redline if desired.
A new option, the GT Track Package, debuts for the 2013 model for customers who want to push their Mustang even further on the track. Available only on manual GT Mustangs with a 3.73 axle, the package gives track enthusiasts an engine cooler, upgraded radiator, performance friction brake pads and the same Torsen differential that’s on the Mustang Boss 302. The package includes everything in the current Brembo Brake Package, with 14-inch vented front discs, unique 19-inch alloy wheels and summer performance tires.
Other optional package updates for 2013 include offering the Brembo Brake Package on both manual and automatic transmissions on Mustang GT.
Hill Start Assist makes its debut 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. With the brake pedal pressed, if sensors detect the car is on a slope, the system is automatically activated. Brake pressure is held in the braking system and the car remains stationary on the slope for up to two seconds after the driver releases the brake pedal.
All Mustang models are available, including performance upgrades and special editions from names such as SHELBY and ROUSH.
We can convert all modern Mustang models from 1996 - 2014 (except 11/2000 - 07/2002) and also provide performance upgrades from the world's most renowned names such as SHELBY, ROUSH and others.
