Sorry folks, I have to disagree with most of you...I am not liking this interior. It's like a truck interior mixed with different interiors from Camaro's from the past. The gauges seem too high, too far spaced, too deep and aimed upward for the seating position. The steering wheel is OK, but nothing more than that. The center cluster makes me think it's the transformer's face looking back at me...odd and too large. The rest seems flat, cheap, and plain.

I actually don't mind the center cluster of tech's that much but I wonder where the heck is the cup holders.

Again, sorry guys/gals...I don't want to rain on the party but I'm just not too pleased with the interior. Again, I remind you all that too retro is NOT a good thing (poor Mustang) and I think while the outside is future retro, the interior is truck-retro future and I aint too pleased with it.

The outside of the car is sooooo good looking I might, MIGHT...turn a blind eye but I have to say that we don't drive from the outside and the living space inside is not something GM should take for granted.

Again, sorry...but as of right now (keeping in mind that the car is still a year away from production and this is a test mule) I'm back on the worry train, lol.

My brother and Autoblog tend to agree, so it's not just me. Sorry if there are others but I didn't read all the thread.

Come on GM, don't drop the ball in the interior.

No, I saw the red concept car at the auto show. I am saying that the pictures simply do not do it justice. It was unbelievable. The only thing that sucked is that I forgot y freaking camera at home.

But why 370? Seems 350 or 400 would be more logical, since those numbers are more common. Maybe this IS the lowest level V8, which would imply 350-400 HP. Still more than the Mustang GT and comparable Dodge performance models.

It was reported that there was going to be 2 V6 and 1 V8 for the 2010 Model year.
Current Models yes, But the 2009 Mustang GT is said to have 340hp 365tq and the V6 is getting a boost as well with 250hp


Second, I am not entirely convinced that the tach and speedo in this car are final. Notice the faux chrome bezels around both gauges? Well, there's no chrome anywhere else on the instrument cluster, only satin silver. The chrome looks a little...odd. Also, those two gauges are small. They look smaller than they should be. I'm betting they are "filler" gauges, probably from AutoZone or whatever, and they are only being used because the real production gauges aren't done yet. If that's the case, then it's possible we will get multi-colored backlighting like the Mustangs, since nothing else would make the gauges take longer to develop than the other parts of the interior. Still, this is only speculation (and a little bit of wishful thinking).

The "My Color" display is being deleted from the 2009 Mustang to costly

You know the pic with the tape stating 10L and fuel? I beleive there will be a silver insert that goes there. The interior is no where near complete in these pictures, you can see missing peices, tab holes and parts that don't look right. The Speedo pods do look correct and complete.


I am REALLY liking everything else in this car. The steering wheel is a little too retro for my tastes, but I'm not complaining. It compliments the whole package. The cup holders are deep, the shifter is short (throw hopefully!), and the parking brake looks badass (never been a fan of wrinkly leather).

I think we're all going to be very happy with the final version. I just wanna know what (if anything) is going between the speedo and tach! I hope it's something like the Vette's HUD.

I think it's going to be a digital information center, and Monitor system, Tire Pressure, Lights working, Gas Mileage, Odometer, Trip meter, outside Temp and a 0-60 timer like in the dodge charger SRT, cool stuff.

Ok here is the Funny thing... A Mustang GT Owner Saying Calm Down and Wait, it will be nicer, this interior is missing alot of peices, In some sence it's just the Bones, Pre-Production and test cars are to work out the kinks, sqweeks and rattles,
just give it some time. and what do you mean Poor Mustang, it's the fastest selling American car in America, Retro is selling, Just because you don't like the interior does not change my opinion of it, so you hate it, Good, thats means one less person I have to have in front of me when I buy one. Your not raining on my party

I tend to see the flatness and plainness as just being the fact that this is merely a prototype. I would be shocked if that is the exact look of the production car

I didn't think about that, but yes....looks as if the in-dash navi system won't fit in this dash. Still, the flip-up double DIN models are probably better. If you plan to keep the car for a while, they can be easily replaced with newer versions. Anyone know exactly how much of the dash would have to be removed to replace the factory stereo? It looks like it's integrated in the same area as the climate control. I know this isn't the final version, but judging by these pics, does it look like an aftermarket stereo would even fit? Would the small screen even work with an aftermarket head unit installed?

Sad to hear about "My Colors" being killed off in '09 Stangs. I know that little option was a selling point for both of my friends who bought them. And I would really like to have it in the new Camaro, since I have Cobalt gauges in my Mustang now, and going with all blue lighting would look great!

Regarding the gauge pods (speedo & tach), I still think they look too small, but if that's final production version, oh well. I am not a fan of 20MPH increments on the speedo, nor chrome bezels....but I'll deal with it if necessary.

I noticed something on the gauges, the speedo only goes to about 120 mph and the tach goes to 5 grand or so. I assume it should read about 140 160 mph and 6 to 6 1/2 redline. I think there might be a little black tape on it. Just my observation and I think this interior is much better than the challenger one. Just clean it up with some trim and complete the car already.

Yup Blue is cool
I did not buy my Mustang for the My Color, I actually asked if it could be removed, I wanted less complexity, more to break. But after playing with it, it turned out to be fun.

I added Tri color LED's to the My Color system in mine, adds a little mood

Another reason I beleive this is a V6 Model, Like the Mustang the V6 speedo goes to 120, and the V8 goes to 150

Take this with a grain of salt, cuz the interior isnt near completion yet, but anyways. If they decide to keep the rmp and speed gauges the way they are, i think i might just go aftermarket for thoes, I dont particularly like the interval spacing on the gauges, specially the speed, any speed between the markings is just too ambiguous. That being said, it is pre production, so it might be changed. All in all, i like the interior, and that radio design, while ya, it does not lend its self to aftermarket stereos, that just means we have to be a bit more "creative" in fitting it in there

These photos may have just come out, ...but they are from the same timeframe as the first (non-GM) released interior 'spy' shots. GM said no camo, ...these were taken prior to GM's announcement of that.

This is what I mean, the concept was way better looking than the actual car that came out and I think most agree. Now, with some aftermarket it can look very tough but the standard GT is just too retro for me. It begs the question...what comes after retro? More retro? Could it end as a new Model T? Also...why does the rear wheel end way to early making the rear behind the wheel look like it will never end.

Friend, that's my honest opinion on the Mustang. Good, but it's looks need aftermarket help in my opinion to get more of that concept look we all loved.

Before I got my 8 I visited a Ford dealership and was disappointed with the quality of the interior (maybe it got better, mainly door panels) and the fact that when I sat in the rear (not a biggy for most mind you) my head was resting on the rear glass and I'm just 5'11 (avg).

What impressed me? It's price per performance ratio was very good.

Who is trying to change your opinion on it? In stating mine I'm not trying to change yours or anyone elses. Relax, everyone has a different taste and personally I'm not too hot in the inside of the Camaro but it's early so I'm not freaking out about it.

Quote:
No your picture is the 67/68 interior, it is more of a retro 69 interior.
Wow, you NAILED IT!!! Wow...GM, that interior is virtually identical to the 69 which was uglier than the 67 which I actually liked better.

I just don't like squareness inside a car...I'm sorry, round is better flowing and less truck like.

Also, the flatness can't be helped with some color inserts...it's the flat shape that I'm complaining about. Again...truck like.

But, again folks I'm aware it's early and if you love it...so be it, it's your money and future car. I love the exterior enough that I might just live with it but I sure wish the final product looks good enough so I don't have to "just" live with it.

My car is not the best thing out there,looks or performance, but overall in test after test it receives high marks in everything it does...along with it's interior.





GM is kicking butt right now so I know they need time to make it look better, so I wait....

Quote:

Yeah, I looked again and I saw them. It's the same location as in my RX8 which when used the drinks get in the way of your shifting but I know there is limited space in there.

Oh, last thing the 67 Camaro interior looks significantly like my RX8...I'm in shock about that. Same chrome line long the sides of the (whill silverish on the 8) center divider and while the 8 has 3 pods to the 67's 2 the gauges look very similar.

That doesn't necessarily mean anything. The speedo in my '85 Z28 only went to 85 mph. Do you think it ONLY went that fast? No.

trapin...thanks for the post and I have hope in GM who has really been kicking butt the past year or more. I agree that too retro is not a good thing and the Camaro did retro right unlike the Mustang which (IN MY OPINION) went TOO retro for my taste.

At least, it does not look as bad as the Challenger which so far looks horrid. Now, like you said...pictures are not enough so I'm basically just talking about my impressions on these pictures.

Well So far the interior pics this time around are better. But I have to agree with Cubanaso. This interior reminds me ALOT of my tahoe. Also yeah I guess no after market stuff at least for this verson of the interior.
