The new 2015 Ford Mustang comes with it a very special feature…the Toggle Switches. In order from left to right we have Hazard Lights, Traction Mode, Steering Mode, and Driving Mode.
Hazards are self explanatory.
Traction Mode includes ON for the quick take off and OFF for the impressive burnout.
Steering Mode includes STANDARD, SPORT, and COMFORT. As yet, I have not experimented with this feature. I’ve been too busy enjoying the last toggle…
Driving Mode is comprised of NORMAL, SPORT+, TRACK, and SNOW/WET. Of course my favorite is SPORT+ as it transforms the car completely from beauty to beast. According to the manual this feature is for more ‘spirited driving’. That’s an understatement. It is best used for stop light racing and tight turn maneuvers, in my opinion.
The Track Mode is reserved for track driving only. As I understand it, you must be registered at an official track while engaging this Mode, or the warranty will be voided. Serious business.
Hopefully I won’t need to use the final Mode this coming winter. But if I do, it’s great to know that it’s there. The amount of driving assistance it will give to my 435HP beast is yet to be seen.
Windows down, radio up, Toggles flipped! Ready, set, go……!
