2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0: Power Driver Seat Commentary (Updated)
May 01, 2012
Well, folks, it's a true face-palm moment. I'm the only editor on staff who did not realize our Mustang had two-way seat-bottom cushion tilt. I offer no excuse. So no, fordson1, we're not all sad, only yours truly.
Our long-term 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 has a six-way power driver seat, a standard item on the GT Premium trim level...
Six-way. That means you can adjust the seat forward on its track (1) and back on its track (2), and then lower the seat-bottom cushion (3) or raise the seat-bottom cushion (4), and finally, increase the lower-back lumbar support (5) or reduce lumbar oomph (6).
Not included is multi-way seat-bottom cushion tilt, i.e. the ability to raise the front half of the seat-bottom cushion separately from the rear part of the cushion. For me, this greatly improves comfort and the driving position, especially in a three-pedal car.
I'd totally give up all of the power seat adjustments (in favor of full manual adjustments) in our Mustang, if I could get two-way seat-bottom cushion tilt. Who's with me?
