2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Interior and Cargo

Ford Mustang Mach 1 Interior & Cargo Rating

2022 Mustang Mach 1 Interior

The most notable differences between the Mach 1 and the GT are the cue-ball shifter and a plaque with the chassis number. You also get model-specific door sill plates and a Mach 1 model displayed on the LCD screen in the instrument cluster when you start the car. The rest is pretty much a high-end Mustang. Ebony cloth is standard, and all of the must-have toys are included as standard. Some of the trim is good, but there are a few places where the quality is low.

One notable difference is the option of having the rear seats removed. These seats only weigh 30 lbs, so there's no real reason to do it. It is a no-cost option, but you have to include the Handling Package to do so. We suppose you'll get more usable cargo capacity, but the most likely reason is the easy fitment of a third-party half-cage.

Seating and Interior Space

The Mustang has more than enough room for the front passengers. It has 45.1 inches of front legroom and 37.6 inches of headroom. Getting in and out of the low-slung Mustang is also a chore but not a deal-breaker. Things are less fun in the rear, as you only get 29 inches of legroom and 34.8 inches of headroom. The Mustang works much better if you treat it like a two-seater, though the rear seats are perfectly fine for preschoolers. You'd look like the coolest dad around dropping the kids off at daycare in a Mach 1.

For the most part, a Mustang's rear seats are just a place to dump stuff. And since most customers will likely get the Handling Package, it may be worth removing the rear seats completely.

Interior Colors and Materials

Cloth bucket seats in Ebony are standard in the base model, but you can upgrade to meaty Recaro sport buckets for an additional $1,650. The only color option is Ebony again. The Premium model gets leather-trimmed seats in Ebony Dove, but Orange Ebony is available for $1,250 as long as it's compatible with your selected exterior color. Ebony Recaro buckets in leather are a $1,650 option for the Premium. The Premium model also adds aluminum foot pedals for that extra dose of sportiness. Aluminum interior trim is standard on both models, as is a Dark Spindrift instrument panel with aluminum accents.

2022 Mustang Mach 1 Trunk and Cargo Space

The Mach 1 has 13.5 cubic feet of cargo capacity, more than you get in some high-end sedans. Considering the Mustang is best suited to two people, the cargo capacity is more than ample for the daily grind or a weekend away with your partner. You can fold the rear seats down in a 50/50 split, further increasing the practicality. Or you can go the whole nine yards and have them removed altogether.

The Mustang's door pockets are on the small side, but you get two cupholders and adequate storage space underneath the armrest. You're not buying this for practicality though, so don't expect family-sedan levels of storage.

2022 Mustang Mach 1 Infotainment and Features


The Mach 1 sits near the top of the Mustang range, so you do get a lot as standard. Both models come with LED headlights, daytime running lights, a 12-inch digital instrument cluster, dual-zone climate control, a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, ambient lighting, premium carpets, keyless entry with a push-button start, tilting/telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel and parking brake, and a universal garage door opener. The Premium trim adds heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, a memory function for the driver's seat, a heated steering wheel, and aluminum foot pedals. Even though the Mach 1 is built for the track, it does have basic driver-assistance features like forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, and blind-spot monitoring.


Both models are equipped with an eight-inch LCD touchscreen running Ford's Sync 3 software. It boasts enhanced voice recognition, two smart-charging USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a three-month SiriusXM subscription. A nine-speaker sound system is standard on both cars, but the Premium gives you the option of going up to a 12-speaker B&) sound system for $1,550. You can also add voice-activated touchscreen navigation with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on either trim for $595.
