    It's sad I got excited when I saw the legroom of 45.1 being 6'6" tall.

    Some interesting things from this:
    Midnight Blue leather should be interesting.
    It will indeed be sticking with the Shaker Pro audio, no B&O Play.
    401A Package now called "Premium Plus" package. Really wish we could see what's included in the packages.
    Only one Performance Package listed. Makes me think PP2 is a Bullitt/Mach1 deal.

    PP2 may not be for fleet.

    Okay. I was confused by the whole fleet thing, because I didn't think the Performance Pack would be available at all for fleets, but I guess now that it's available with the automatic maybe the Hertz Adrenaline line of cars may want it or something.

    Probably the same for a premier interior trim option (I'm hoping). They can't tease us with stuff like glove leather wrapped steering wheels only to stick us in hard plastic with cardboard pleather seats. If they bundled that into Premium Plus, that would be the suck.

    I thought I remember reading somewhere that the nicer leather is combined with the digital cluster all in the Premium Plus package. Since this is the 401A package now, my guess is it'll still include the Shaker Pro and memory seats, but will kick the blind spot monitoring and cross traffic detection into the Safe and Smart package, and give you the nicer leather and digital cluster instead. Hoping we see a breakdown of packages soon.

    Has there been confirmation of 2 separate performance packages?

    When I spoke to a Ford rep at the Houston auto show, who said mostly does test driving in Michigan, I mentioned there being two separate performance packages to offer different sets and he said "why would we ever offer two separate performance packages. It would only make sense to offer performance-based upgrades in a single package."

    They're sticking with the base model getting a 4.2" screen with Sync2 :doh:

    A base model Chevy Spark even gets a 8" touchscreen with Android Auto....

    Those sons of whores. 401A is what, $1800? That would be worth it if the price doesn't go up (figure $400 for premiere, $700 for digital cluster on their own, the prices should be lower when bundled into a package).

    How long are they going to drag out releasing the final performance numbers? That kind of stuff should be announced by the time you can order the car.

    I found this interesting, all of the interior dimensions are identical to the '15-'17 except the legroom, which goes up in the front (by .5") but goes down in the back (by 1.5"). Wonder what is driving this.

    I'm sure they will be well known by the time orders open.


    Side note - you go through a lot of Mustangs in a quick order. :mullet:

    Yeah...as a 2015 non-premium owner, I'd say the base cars are sitting a little behind the curve in this department. Check the MK7 or refreshed MK7.5(?) GTI interface for reference. Low/mid $20k cars with a big ol' touchscreen, Apple/Android, etc. :shrug:

    The only two stats I cared about are TBD

    ENGINES
    2.3L EcoBoost I-4 5.0L Ti-VCT V8
    Horsepower (hp @ rpm) TBD TBD
    Torque (lb.-ft. @ rpm) TBD TBD

    The only confirmation was the leaked order guide from this thread: http://www.mustang6g.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69847
    Performance Package 2 was coded as 673. The regular PP is 67G and EcoBoost PP is 67E. I'd take what that rep said with a grain of salt, but this further drives my idea that PP2 might be a mildly upgraded sub-model beyond the Performance Pack.

    Yeah I was disappointed to see this in the initial 2018 release. Chevy and Dodge both have better standard infotainment with touchscreens. If Ford didn't want to make the premium screen any bigger then they should have just made a 6 inch screen with larger bezel. Unfortunately there's nothing like that in the Ford parts bin. I think the base model screen will probably work against it as not having a touchscreen in a 32k 2018-2020 model year car will be pretty absurd. Like you said, even base model econoboxes get this stuff. No excuse at this point.

    Actually, a base model should be just that -- a base model.

    There are still people that rather enjoy driving the car in lieu of having a contest wth everyone else over whose base model has more crap to fiddle with. All the stuff has done over the years is drive up complexity, cost, and weight. If people want it, it should be an option.

    At this price point. A larger screen is a standard product. A mid-range Honda civic sedan has better tech than the base model mustang and those run over 10k cheaper.

    I am one of those who prefer to drive, rather than have a complex system to deal with. Having a ton of buttons, like the base model, is bulky and fairly complex (let alone ugly). As for cost, having a non-nav Sync3 option for the base models would likely be a negligible increase in cost, one that most of the younger minded buyers would be very happy to absorb. Hell, get rid of the CD Player and it may even save Ford money. A base model buyer is likely a college student or young professional who doesn't have premium money. They likely don't care for having a CD player anyways.

    A base model Camaro or Challenger has a better infotainment system and similar power. If driving is what someone wants, and infotainment comes 2nd, then the Camaro or Challenger may steal away potential base model buyer. In the end, it's a bad decision to continue with the 4.2".... IMO

    And I thought I remember they were removing the Shaker from 401A and adding in NAV as standard lol. :shrug:
