What's the difference between '07 Mustang Basic, Deluxe & GT?

Planning to buy a used Mustang but I'm stuck between the difference. Can't seem to find anything through google.com.

Thanks!

I've got a deluxe model that I ordered sight unseen. The only surprise there was that Ford's website didn't explain all the difference between a deluxe & a premium. The only disappointment initially was that the deluxe interior didn't have any metalic trim on the steering wheel & dash.

The all-black look (no metalic trim) has since grown on me and I'm no longer disappointed.

In the GT the difference between the Deluxe and Premium is mostly interior mods. Chrome trim, stereo... stuff like that.

Thanks for the replies. I mean the difference between a '07 Mustang Deluxe and a '07 Mustang GT.

I know Mustang has a GT Deluxe and GT Premium but I'm not talking about those cars.

If I understand what you're asking correctly, the biggest difference is the Deluxe is a V6 and the GT is A V8.

I thought that all 2007 Mustangs were either deluxe or premium. In 2006 there was a "standard" model.

As far as standard equipment goes on the V6, I think the differences between the deluxe and premium are different wheels, driver's power seat, and radio. But you could get the premium wheels, driver's power seat, and radio on the deluxe as options. There are some options that were available only on the premium. You could option a deluxe to exceed what was standard on the premium.

As far as standard equipment goes on the GT, I think the differences between the deluxe and premium are cloth seats on the deluxe with leather on the premium, and a different radio on the deluxe than on the premium. You could option the leather and premium radio on the deluxe. You could also option the deluxe to exceed what was standard on the premium.

There is a Deluxe and Premium package for both the V6 and GT. The only differences in the V6 interior and GT interior is the gauges and the center of the seat covers are a little different. (GT's have perforated leather, V6's don't. A little different design.)

Mustang V6 & GT Deluxe - This is the base model. The interior looks like this:

There is an option on the Deluxe model called the "sport interior package" or something of that nature. It adds a leather wrapped steering wheel with silver trim on the steering wheel and the shifter, which looks like this:

Then there's the Mustang V6 & GT Premium. This includes alots of aluminum-looking trim and leather seats. This also includes the Mycolor gauges with a display center, Shaker 500 or 1000 stereo, and more options such as the comfort package, premium trim package etc. are available.

Hope that helped you understand...

GT Deluxe = Cloth / 160W Stereo
GT Premium = Leather / 500W stereo

But the items that made a Premium where also optional on the Deluxe (dont ask why).

The leather wrapped steering wheel with aluminum accents, aluminum/leather gear shift ****, door sill plates, my color, display center, etc were not part of Premium but the "Interior Upgrade Package" which was available on both GT Deluxe and GT Premium. I have seen a Premium with the plastic steering wheel and plain dash.

The interior package referred to above as the "Sport Interior Package" is incorrect. That is the one that included the Black Ribbed Dash instead of aluminum.

The leather/aluminum wheel and shift **** where known as the Drivers Ornamentation Package (yes its can be confused with the hood scoop, engine cover and exhaust tips) and was a fleet option intended for cars destined for conversion (read Saleen, Steeda, Roush, etc)

I don't think we're being punked with unless it's someone from OT...

Thanks for the corrections, Gene. Nice freaking 1/4 time btw.

Actually, I was kind of curious about that subject myself, just never posted on it. I think my first post here was asking what "Roush" was.

There might have been changes in the options throughout the model year. Early in the 2007 model year, even the premium GT did not include the aluminum trim on the steering wheel and the shifter. I think the steering wheel was hard plastic, not leather wrapped. I got the leather wrapped steering wheel with aluminum trim on the steering wheel, shifter, and pedals by ordering the Interior Sport Appearance Package. If you ordered the Interior Upgrade Package, then I think you got the items I mentioned (not sure about the pedals) plus oil pressure and voltage gauges, My Color, message center, some additional dash trim, and other miscellaneous appearance items.

OP joined only yesterday, so having one (it was actually two) posts by shortly after midnight on the join date is reasonable. He has no known OT activity, so the post count under his username represents his complete activity here.

Please try to be a little more thorough in your research if you're going to go looking for insight into why a given member may have asked a particular question. OP deserves the benefit of the doubt, even though the username itself is a bit unusual and might sound OT-ish to some.


I might have asked the same question a couple of years ago if I was buying used (read: available sales brochure and internet content would not necessarily reflect the year(s) that I'd have been looking at).

I'm not punking anybody. Just got a question. You guys will probably see more more here since I'm buying a Mustang in a couple of months.

Thanks for the replies. Saw '07 Deluxe for $3,000 cheaper than a GT so wasn't sure which one to go for.

Well, for that 07 deluxe, you should go and see if it is a V6 deluxe or a GT deluxe.

There are four trims:
V6 Deluxe
V6 Premium

GT Deluxe
GT Premium

I was also curious what my car was because I have a odd array of stuff. Leather wraped steering wheel, shaker 500, but no my color (or from what I can figure out, unless theres a button or something). I wonder If I got a Deluxe with the sport package and shaker, hmmmm

Supposedly you access MyColor through the IP 'Setup' button. And I think there's some requirement about headlights being on. I'm supposed to have it, but I like the factory default well enough to have never bothered with trying that feature out (so I don't know all the ins and outs of it).
