The Ford Mustang has received a marginal price increase across its range and standard FordPassConnect, while there’s been a changing of the guard at the top of the range.

Production of the Herrod Performance-tuned, supercharged R-Spec has come to an end, and the Mach 1 now serves as the flagship Mustang.

It features slightly more power, plus standard MagneRide dampers and retuned steering and exhaust.

It also features a rear axle cooler and lower diffuser from the Shelby GT500, plus an intake manifold and engine oil cooler from the Shelby GT350.

What it doesn’t include is a Torsen rear limited-slip differential, adaptive cruise control or rear parking sensors, all items that were originally listed in Ford’s promotional material.

Ford is now reaching out to Mach 1 customers who were disappointed these features weren’t on their vehicles.

The Mustang is the latest Ford to gain FordPassConnect, which allows you to use the FordPass app on your phone to locate, lock, unlock and remotely start the vehicle.

This generation of Mustang – introduced in 2015 – is the first to be built in right-hand drive instead of converted locally.

It was a wise move, as the Mustang quickly snatched the title of Australia’s best-selling sports car and has yet to relinquish it.
