Overview

  • For 2007, Mustang's bold American style was enhanced with two new appearance packages and a host of interior and equipment upgrades. Additional features included available heated front seats, a standard auxiliary audio input jack and optional SIRIUS satellite radio. Yet another Mustang first, a DVD-based navigation system, was available shortly after the 2007 model year launched.
  • Mustang coupe and convertible body styles were offered in four models: V6 Deluxe, V6 Premium, GT Deluxe and GT Premium.
  • All Mustangs were built in Flat Rock, Mich.

Design and Equipment

For 2007, GT models are available with a new GT California Special edition and the GT appearance package.

  • The Mustang GT California Special was available on GT Premium models and included 18-inch wheels, side scoops, unique tape stripes, rolled bright exhaust tips, black leather trimmed seats with unique “Cal Special” contrasting Dove or Parchment leather inserts, a larger air intake, a chin spoiler 1.5 inches lower than GT, and unique front and rear fascias.
  • The GT appearance package featured rolled exhaust tips, an engine cover with a Pony emblem and a hood scoop.
  • The GT California Special and GT appearance packages could be ordered separately or combined.
  • A comfort group package was new for 2007. Available on V6 and GT models, it included an electrochromic mirror with compass, driver and front-passenger heated seats, and a six-way power passenger seat.
  • Also new was a standard auxiliary audio input jack and available SIRIUS satellite radio.
  • For V-6 buyers, the Pony Package included a customized grille with GT-style round fog lamps and a chrome bezel, or “corral,” around the traditional Mustang prancing horse. Backing up this upgrade was a GT-inspired suspension featuring a larger front stabilizer bar, the addition of a rear stabilizer bar and P235/55ZR17 tires on painted cast-aluminum wheels - with bright machined rims and unique tri-bar Pony center caps, these were the largest factory wheels and tires ever fitted to a V-6 Mustang.

Further touches include Pony front fender badges, lower door tape stripe, carpeted front floor mats with special brushed chrome “Mustang” logos and a rear spoiler.

Inside, the industry-first, color-configurable instrument panel was still offered. Mustang owners could mix and match lighting at the touch of a button to create more than 125 color backgrounds.

Modern touches were mixed with Mustang history and heritage. Chrome-ringed air vents were aligned vertically across the dash, precisely in line with the gauges, and the steering wheel has three spokes with a center hub marked by the horse and tricolor bars logo, echoing the design of the 1967 Mustang.

Standard features included one-touch up-down power windows, power mirrors, keyless entry and power locks, a heated rear window, interval wipers, air conditioning, speed control and a CD player.

Powertrain 

  • The GT continued with the 4.6-liter, aluminum V-8 has three valve heads remained and and cranked out 300 horsepower.
  • The standard Mustang utilized the 60-degree, 4.0-liter, single-overhead-cam V-6, producing 210 horsepower and 240 foot-pounds of torque.

Both engines were paired with a standard five-speed manual or an available five-speed automatic, which provides a unique combination of off-the-line jump and good highway fuel economy.

Chassis

The front suspension used MacPherson struts with reverse “L” lower control arms. The three-link rear suspension used a lightweight, tubular Panhard rod that provided precise control of the rear axle. This technology stabilized the rear axle as the wheels move, particularly during hard cornering.

The standard four-wheel disc brakes had the biggest rotors and stiffest calipers ever fitted to a mainstream Mustang. Twin-piston aluminum calipers clamped on 12.4-inch ventilated front brake discs on GT models. In the rear, the brake rotors are 11.8 inches in diameter.

A four-channel anti-lock brake system (ABS) with traction control was standard on GT models and available on V-6 models. It used electronic sensors to constantly monitor road conditions and feed the information to a dedicated control computer that was capable of determining within milliseconds whether the vehicle is on dry pavement or negotiating a slippery surface. When traction control wasn’t desired, drivers could deactivate the system with a button on the instrument panel.

Safety and Security

Ford’s Personal Safety System®, a comprehensive safety technology package, was standard. The system provided increased protection in frontal crashes by analyzing crash factors and determining the proper response within milliseconds. It used dual-stage driver and front-passenger air bags — capable of deploying at full or partial power — safety belt pretensioners and energy management retractors.

  • Standard right front passenger sensing tailored deployment of the front-passenger air bag. If the passenger seat sensor detected no or very little weight, as for a briefcase, the passenger air bag was automatically switched off. If more weight is on the seat, as for a small child, the air bag remained deactivated and an instrument panel light alerted the driver. If a heavier adult is in the passenger seat, the air bag automatically switched on.
  • An optional active anti-theft package offered customers an added level of security. It included a sensing module to guard against tow-away thefts, an interior motion sensor to detect smash-and-grab break-ins. A separate alarm sounder — in addition to the vehicle horn — thwarted thieves trying to disable the horn, and a high-capacity, 60-ampere-hour battery was fitte to sound the alarm longer.
