2011 Ford Mustang Long-Term Road Test


2011 Ford Mustang GT: Go...Bucks?

January 31, 2011

(Man, that tach-sweep shot is hard.)

When you first hop into our Long Term 2011 Ford Mustang GT, there are a lot of cool details to take in. The rad metal-ball shifter is first and then, once you start 'er up, you notice the gauges. Now, they're nothing special -- the numbers are big and the needle is easy to read but small enough to be precise -- until someone goes and messes with the color adjustable gauges that come on the premium pack. Like someone here did who is a big fan of the Milwaukee Bucks and their green and purple color scheme.

Follow the jump for a video of the colors for both the gauge, trim ring and ambient lighting. (Note: my camera wasn't thrilled with these colors... they are truer to the color listed than they actually appear.)

Bonus information: The 2011 Ford Mustang GT500 can be programmed to do a red, white and blue color scheme with the speedo in red, center info in white and the tach in blue.
