Questions/Comments:The lack of display information configurations for CUSTOMER DESIRES is not a good sales booster. The information displayed, is geared towards race enthusiasts, not pleasure usage. I would like to have the ability to configure my driving console information, such as digital speed readout, along with miles to refill, and trip mileage. All this information is buried in the Engineering Data screens, but is not configurable to stay on screen once the key is turned off. I don't need race track data, such as fuel ratio data, head temperature, but if someone wants that on their permanent display, they should have the ability to configure those data. This is a simple software fix, across ALL models, and recent model years (with this electronic data). Have your engineers check the Mustang forums for the number of complaints this lack of foresight has produced. Bill Lambiaso, owner 2014 Mustang convertible premium model.

Is digital speed readout, along with miles to refill, and trip mileage not in the options somewhere? I rented a 2015 a couple months ago while on vacation and I am 99% sure it had all that plus the "track" data. I am not sure on the 2013-2014, but thought they were the same. Shoot if it doesn't I am surprised as my 2006 has all that minus digital speed read out...

(I have owned a few non Mustang cars over the years as well, but always try to have a Mustang with it or come quickly back to a Mustang!)

We do have the ability to view certain fields on the display as you toggle thru the options, but we do not have the ability to set what comes up on the display, and will stay there, when you first turn on the ignition.

For example, I would like to set digital speed (available in the engineering data about 10 clicks into the menu), engine temp., battery charge, and MPG. All is available, but no capability to set as favorite configuration.

Maybe you need a Honda. I would suggest a Lincoln, they have most of the options you are looking for.
