Mustang55 models equipped with Ford’s six-speed manual gearbox feature a unique moulded gear-shift knob, while 10-speed automatic models feature a unique alloy metal gear-shift knob. The Mustang also houses its own on-board modern technology, FordPass Connect, which turns the sports car into a mobile WiFi hotspot with connectivity for up to 10 devices!
