Default "Sport Mode" not working Help!

My 2015 GT with PP was built around December 2014. I ordered if in December 2014 and I got it in early February 2015.

It only has three buttons where all the other newer ones have the four toggle switches. So there is NO driving mode switch to set the "sport" mode or track mode.

I can turn the traction control off with one button and select steering effort with another, but that is all.

Was there a mid-year change that I missed?

Is there a way to get this drive mode feature? Even if it has to be set using the steering wheel controls that's OK.

It's not that it isn't working -- you don't have it. Based upon the car and the options some don't have the 4 toggles and so don't have that option.

As JimC said, you don't have it.

Well that shows how salesmen don't know always know their products well enough to ask if I wanted it - since I was clueless too. He should have guessed. He knew I just sold my 'built '03 Mach-1 and that i had about 15 years of road race history. He was also a Mustang 'booster'. Funny because the car had the GT Perf-Pack option.

I wonder if the advantages of the "Sport or Track modes" can be part of the Ford Racing stage II intake kit I have on the car as part of its default tune.

It wasn't the performance package that added the selectable drive modes in 2015, it was selecting the GT premium model. While the 301A package will add it to a non-premium GT today, it doesn't appear to have been available in 2015, at least in the order guide that I have seen.

Well that explains it then. I wish he had sold me the Premium package. For one thing , the crappy one-piece rear bumper turned out to be a disappointment.

I had to pull it off and send it out to divide the one-piece bumper, visually, with satin black paint at a body shop.
