New Ford Mustang GT Can Have Programmed “Quiet Hours”
August 18th, 2017
We mentioned a few weeks ago how fast the new Mustang GT but now people are talking about another feature. Quiet Exhaust mode will make its debut on the new 2018 Mustang GT this fall, according to MotorTrend. Just like you can limit vehicle speed or radio volume in the control settings, now you can also program the car to automatically start with its active valve performance exhaust system set to its sotto voce mode during the time when folks may be trying to sleep. You can let it roar the rest of the time. And the feature is currently only available on the GT, despite the GT350 having the necessary active exhaust valves.
Once you activate it, the peak exhaust sound at startup is said to register at about 72 decibels—or as Ford describes it “about the level of a household dishwasher.” So what are your thoughts…is it worth having a muscle car if it’s quite?
This week on PowerNation RockAuto.com co-founder Tom Taylor is back to talk about this year’s epic Xtreme Off Road adventure: Bourbon & Boulders. Tom and a group of aftermarket company enthusiasts will once again mount up and follow Ian this time through Kentucky as they hit some cool trails and check out a few Bluegrass State distilleries. This time Ian is taking a 1968 Jeepster Commando and transforming it into a vintage every day rock crawler that you’ll see in upcoming Xtreme episodes. And then the big payoff happens in November. And when it’s all said and done you can enter for chance to win the Jeepster by signing up starting August 23rd
