New 2015 Ford Mustang and reckless marketing gimmick

By Peter Chubb - Dec 12, 2013

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, we are so happy that Ford took the decision to include a number of enchantments that makes the new 2015 Ford Mustang a more formidable car, much like Chevrolet has done with the 2014 Corvette Stingray.

It’s not just a fast vehicle with beautiful looks and an interior that you wouldn’t mind spending hours in at a time, but there is a host of new safety features to help improve the over handling. However, we are concerned with a news report in what can only be described as a reckless marketing gimmick for the New Ford Mustang.

Many powerful cars have a system called launch control to help give you that perfect pull off, which means the reduction of wheel spin to help give you that perfect launch. However, Ford could be about to offer something that will do the complete opposite and promote burnouts.

According to Motor Authority, the new 2015 Ford Mustang will come with something called burnout control, although Ford has not confirmed this and could be mere speculation. Having said that, we know that Ford is not giving up all its secrets just yet and so there could be some truth to this.

If this rumor is true, then activating burnout control will lock the brakes on the 2015 Ford Mustang while the optimal revs from the engine is achieved, only then will the system allow you pull away.

We can understand how such a feature would be good on a drag strip, but it’s not going to promote safe driving and we are not sure where you would stand in terms of dealer warranty, and so we don’t think burnout control will ever make it to the new Mustang.

    This is one of the dumbest things I’ve read. You make up a feature, say why you don’t like it, and conclude with the made up feature not being recommended.

    In the event this was real, how is it any more reckless than launch control? Spinning tires while not moving is unsafe but taking off as fast as mechanically possible is safe?

    Loving the idea of burnout control, look forward to some sort of confirmation by Ford.


    The warranty would still work if there is something in the programming to tell and save in the computer every time the burn out feature is activated and used.

      I agree, the warranty should work under this situation. But we still got to wait and see once confirmation arrives.
