There is no doubting the fact that the Ford Mustang is a loud car. Imagine driving into your closed society gates at 2 in the night and waking up your neighbors. I mean that can be fun once or twice but making it a routine would be simply unacceptable. To take care of this, Ford has come up with a new feature in the 2018 Mustang which is called the Quiet Mode. Well, just as the name suggests, you can quieten up the exhaust just with a press of a button. Watch this video for a better explanation-
“Active valve performance exhaust gives Mustang owners the best of both worlds – that classic Mustang sound, and the ability to not wake up your neighbours when you leave the house early in the morning or arrive home late at night,” said Matt Flis, Ford exhaust development engineer. “When sounds get up into the upper-70-decibel range, that’s typically about when they start to bother people. With quiet start activated, the decibel level of the new Mustang GT drops by about 10 decibels, to a much more comfortable 72 decibels – about the level of a household dishwasher,” said Flis.”
You can even set up active hours for this mode and this is the first system which comes with a quiet start mode. Interesting! Stay tuned to Exhibit Auto for more such news and updates from the Auto Industry.
