2010 Ford Mustang Center Console and Climate Control

2010 Ford Mustang Shifter & Console

So far, Ford has shown us the front seats, the dash, and the shifter knob of the 2010 Mustang–now we get to see just a little more of the interior.  This week’s teaser gives us a full perspective of the center console and the lower accessory controls in the new pony car.  What we have here is a definite move up in class with some elegant chrome trim (of what could be the next IUP package…or could be standard) around the shifter bezel as well as the accessory knobs.  The climate control system appears to have been updated to a push-button setup and also allows for two distinct climate zones for the Mustang’s front occupants.  The traction control button also gets a relocation downward, more adjacent to the shifter.  These changes aren’t watershed by any means, but the true enthusiasts know exactly what is evolving.  The true rendition will solidify all of our past teasings and suppositions in just a few weeks, at the LA Auto Show.

Ford Uncovers the 2010 Mustang Dash & Cluster

2010 Ford Mustang dash and instrument cluster

After seeing the front fender and side view mirror, Ford has decided to take us back inside the 2010 Mustang to show us the updated perspective every owner will soon be very familiar with.  Looking out toward the front from the pilot’s view, we can see a nice presentation of the steering wheel with the updated running horse logo in the center.  What is most noticeable to today’s S197 owner is that the retro-styled air vents have now been replaced with traditional slotted ones. Hmm, we rather fancied the circular outlets–they were a great throwback to the Classic era.  Additionally, the tachometer is finally back on the right side, as it is on the current Shelby GT500.  Take a good look at the image we have shared out for you and then stop into our forums and let us know what you think!
