New photos reveal 2013 Mustang LCD screen with Gauge Mode and Track App
We previously revealed that the Mustang Boss 302 would be getting more technology for 2013 including SYNC and a new 4.2-inch LCD screen between the gauges. That LCD screen will be making its way into the standard Mustang as well, and it’s a whole lot cooler than we ever could have expected.
A new batch of photos showing a poster, apparently intended for dealer training, reveal that the LCD screen will have numerous features including a ‘Gauge Mode’ and a ‘Track App’. The Gauge Mode will offer fairly standard features like trip and fuel economy displays, but it will also have advanced features that provide the car’s air/fuel ratio, boost/vacuum, cylinder head temperature, inlet air temperature and more. The Track App allows drivers to track acceleration times – 0-60 mph, 0-100 mph, 0-1/8 mile and 0-1/4 mile – with an automatic or countdown start. There is also an accelerometer and a setting that records braking performance.
In addition to the LCD screen, it’s expected that the 2013 Mustang will receive a significant styling update with design cues similar to the Shelby GT500, along with a slight bump in horsepower to put it more align with the Chevrolet Camaro SS.
