Road & Track editor Jason Cammisa has managed to find out the 2015 Ford Mustang provides a digitally enhanced engine sound.

Jason Cammisa was testing the 2015 Ford Mustang equipped with the 4-cylinder 2.3-liter EcoBoost and pulled a fuse only to discover the audio system and engine both went quiet in the cabin, indicating the vehicle is equipped with some sort of a digital engine sound enhancer. Autoblog obtained a confirmation from Ford regarding this "feature" which is called Active Noise Control and is installed only on the EcoBoost version.

Ford engineer Shawn Carney says the system serves two purposes, one for cancelling out some of the coarse noise and the other for "layering in certain sound characteristics on top of what's already there." The engine's processor monitors torque output and makes the necessary changes to provide a "natural experience." Carney went on to say the Active Noise Control system was developed with feedback from Mustang fans after Ford asked them to choose from different "sound concepts."
