I no longer double tap and set it. Experimented with it a few years ago and felt nothing. So I dont even try anymore. Got this pedalmax I got to install so maybe it will make up for that.
As someone else has noted the sports plus mode is only for the premium trim. In an Auto you should notice the difference between sport plus and normal.So is sport mode a "premium only" mode? I didnt have any modes like that in my base. Do got some kinda "advance sport trac" which I have yet to feel anything that it does. ..bummer
No, sport mode (along with several other drive modes) is a premium trim item. They alter steering "feel", TC settings, and throttle map. I've always thought the drive modes are a little gimmicky, but YMMV
Sport plus mode is available on all trims. The premium trims have a nice toggle while non-premium trims have to have their foot on brake, double tap traction control.As someone else has noted the sports plus mode is only for the premium trim.

Cant think of anything I have been disappointed with, maybe the cooled seats mind you Steph loves themAhh..no confusion here.. We're just disappointed and excited at same time!
Do you have any documentation showing sport mode is different? Do you have any reviews showing this? I would find it very odd if sport mode behaved different.The sport mode on base (300A) cars is a traction/stability control setting. It has no impact on pedal map or steering feel. My understanding has always been that the premium trim (400A/401A) car drive modes do more than the base cars.
IIRC throttle is drastically cut in snow/wet. SO it requires much more input to achieve the same results.I put it in Wet/Snow mode at 50 MPH and you could actually feel the power loss. It was like a brake was dragging.
I haven't used Track mode still. How does Sport+ mode allow the vehicle to yaw more without magnetic shocks?
Did you not see my post on how to engage driving modes with the base model GT?I have a GT base model with Performance Package and all you get is the traction control (on/off) button and steering response from Normal, comfort and sport mode. All this does is loosen or tighten the steering geometry of the car. It does not change throttle response.....that's what the 3.73 gears and 435hp do...ha ha
The steering modes of the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and EcoBoost models will give the driver their choice of Comfort, Normal and Sport. Comfort requires the least amount of driver input while Sport requires the most driver input – while also offering the most feedback to the driver. Sport gives the driver the most connected feel with the Mustang and Normal steering mode will be a balance between the softness of Comfort and the stiffness of Sport.
This is ALL steering input and nothing more on the base GT with the 3 buttons below the A/C controls.
The GT Premium offers 4 toggle switches with an additional toggle switch for "drive modes".
The drive modes allow the driver to pick between Wet/Snow, Normal, Sport and Track with the system adjusting the stability control, traction control, throttle response and shift points (automatic only) of the S550 Mustang with either the 5.0L V8 or the 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder. Wet/Snow will dial back the throttle response to help cut back on wheel spin in rough conditions while also easing back on the sensitivity of the traction control system to let the wheels spin just a bit to help the Mustang dig out of the snow. Sport mode will sharpen the throttle response, increase the shift RPM in automatic models, vastly cut back the action of the throttle response and allow more yaw (vehicle angle relative to the direction of the car) while Track mode will offer the sharpest throttle response and shift points while disabling the most traction control and allowing the most yaw before the stability control engages.
I noticed the throttle pedal input was reduced but you could also feel a reduction in power when just cruising once you flipped it on.IIRC throttle is drastically cut in snow/wet. SO it requires much more input to achieve the same results.
Gives us EB owners much more fine tuning space for our part throttle races.
I can't speak from experience honestly. Didn't want leather so just went for PP not premium. Just what I've read. I think a power cut + throttle reduction is a bit much. Hell I did fine without either with just a new set of Blizzaks with no modes haha.I noticed the throttle pedal input was reduced but you could also feel a reduction in power when just cruising once you flipped it on.
Do you care to elaborate your sources? I have searched and was unable to find any definitive information on this.None of the drive modes on premium trim cars add or remove power. They just alter traction control, steering feel, and pedal sensitivity giving the illusion of more/less power. The base trim cars do have "advance trac" sport mode available via double tapping the TC button. This is not the same as sport drive mode in premium cars. Yes, there is plenty of information regarding this if you'll search.
The driving modes are explained in the owner's manual, page 129 I think.Do you care to elaborate your sources? I have searched and was unable to find any definitive information on this.
