2022 Mustang GT Coupe Interior

The GT Coupe's interior features comfortable sports cloth seats, which can be upgraded to leather-trimmed variants on the GT Premium trim. Materials used are a little workmanlike, but overall construction is solid. The firmer suspension packages can sometimes elicit the odd rattle, though. At the price, there isn't much to complain about. To lift the experience to a more premium level, the center console's lid, the knee bolster, and the shifter boot can be upgraded to plusher, stitched items, and graphite or carbon-fiber dashboard appliques can be specified. Upgrading to the 12-inch digital gauge cluster also improves the ambiance. Opting for the GT Premium trim replaces the tiny 4.2-inch Sync infotainment system with an eight-inch Sync 3 touchscreen system with a lot more features.

Seating and Interior Space

The driver's seat features six-way electrical adjustment and the passenger's seat four-way. The front seats on the GT Premium are leather-upholstered and climate controlled. There is plenty of space up front and ample adjustment even for lanky frames, but the rear seats can be described as a token gesture at most. The two individual buckets are extremely cramped, even for small children, and are essentially useless for anything but dumping shopping. Getting into the low-slung, two-door coupe requires slouching and some people might not be enamored with the undignified exits necessitated by the low seating position - but a Mustang isn't for that kind of person anyway. Getting into the back is even more of a chore than sitting there. The long, wide-swinging doors don't help any in this regard, either.

Interior Colors and Materials

The Mustang GT's standard interior features electrically-adjustable Ebony or Dark Ceramic cloth bucket seats and a 'Silver Arrow' aluminum finish on the instrument panel. Upgrading to the GT Premium trim brings leather upholstery, instead, with the added choice of Tan. For an added cost, you can have leather seats in Showstopper Red, Midnight Blue with Grabber Blue stitching, or White. The latter means you'll need to spend extra on the Ice White Appearance Package with its white leather, Ice White instrument panel, and white accent stitching. With the California Special Package, the Mustang GT Premium's cabin is decked out with a Carbon Hex aluminum instrument panel and Miko suede for both the door and door inserts, together with red contrast stitching.

2022 Mustang GT Coupe Trunk and Cargo Space

People don't buy sports coupes for their trunks, but it is heartening to learn that the Mustang performs well on this front. The trunk volume of 13.5 cubic feet is not to be sneezed at and is, in fact, bigger than that of a Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan. Touring two-up with luggage is, therefore, no problem at all. The rear seat can be used for storage as well or folded down in a 50/50 split to increase the trunk space. By comparison, the Camaro, although of similar size on the outside, makes do with a scant 9.1 cu-ft, but there's no touching the Challenger's 16.2 cu-ft. Interior storage spaces are adequate but not generous, the door pockets not being particularly large. At least the console storage bin is of a good size.

2022 Mustang GT Coupe Infotainment and Features

Features

The standard-feature tally has been increased over the years and the 2022 GT Coupe now has a decent factory-built specification. These include manual climate control (dual-zone costs extra), power-adjustable front cloth seats, automatic lights and wipers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a backup camera, and two USB charging ports. The GT Premium replaces or adds to these features by offering dual-zone climate control, heated and ventilated leather front seats, ambient lighting, and better interior trim finishes. Several driver-assistance features come standard courtesy of the Ford CoPilot360 safety suite, such as lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, and forward collision warning, as well as stability control. A smart 12-inch digital gauge cluster, ambient lighting, heated steering wheel, and a wrapped and stitched center console are some of the optionally available features.

Infotainment

The standard Sync infotainment system on the GT Coupe is a let-down with its 4.2-inch LCD screen but at least the FordPass Connect system is standard, as are voice recognition, TrackApps performance metrics, 911 Assist, and AppLink. The infotainment system is linked to a six-speaker audio system. Sync 3 is optionally available on the GT and standard on the GT Premium. Its touchscreen measures a much more useful eight inches and it adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, as well as a better nine-speaker audio system. The audio system can optionally be upgraded to a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen system that includes a trunk-mounted subwoofer and HD Radio. In use, Sync 3 is perfectly satisfactory, but sometimes a little laggy.
