2013 Mustang to get "Track Apps" LCD display

Illustration for article titled 2013 Mustang to get Track Apps LCD display

Apps this, apps that. Everyone's gone app crazy, even Ford, which will deliver the 2013 Mustang with a 4.2-inch LCD screen from which a driver can get massive amounts of performance-related information — from G-force readouts to temperature gauges spanning various internals (engine, transmission, intake, etc.) — and even "Track Apps."

What are these Track Apps? As far as we can tell from a few display panels recently shown to dealers, they're mostly accelerometer-related, including 0-60 mph and 0-100 mph times, eighth-mile and quarter-mile times, by way of a simulated dragstrip Christmas tree.

There are probably more, but we'll probably have to wait a year (or until the next leak) to get a look at them. Either way, looks like Ford engineers have taken a cue from the Nissan GT-R and created an interface fit for the detail-obsessed track nerd in all of us.
