Single Din Receivers

Does anyone know of any single din receivers that will fit the stock dash in the 2014 v6? I am finding that the expensive portion of replacing the head unit comes from having to purchase a dash kit. If I can just purchase the receiver without having to replace the dash, that is what I would prefer to do. Thanks.

They all will with the proper dash kit. Personally I think the dash will look a little strange with a single DIN.

My problem is that I am trying to avoid buying a dash kit. I can get a nice single din that will my purposes for under $200, but the kits all cost upwards of $400 - $500. I would like simply to switch out the stock stereo for a better one without having to replace the dash.

Unfortunately with Mustangs you will need a new dash kit. As far as I know there is no way around it.

Apparently there is a factory ford sync kit on eBay for $63 that fits the Stangs. People have been installing it successfully and getting sync features. A few extra parts seem to be needed for voice control, but otherwise the sync features work with just the $63 kit according to them. I will try and post a link later when I have access to a computer.

I was hoping someone had a decent solution too. OP if you haven't done it already replacing the 4 speakers that come with the base models makes a big sound differance.

$500 dollar dash kit? For what????? On crutchfield they give you anything you need for free with any radio purchase. Even if you had to buy it on your own, should be no more than say $30 for the kit and $50-$100 for the amp/ohm adapters.

they don't give those type of inserts away, often you can get them at 1/2 price These are the ones that have the climate controls in them as they are part of the radio assembly

Never realized the 2010+ was so different.

I would be surprised if that was the case. Im geting ready to upgrade my stereo with a double din and still use Sync, the idatalnk Maestro is 150.00 by itself. I dont think a 63.00 will do what you want.

I've been doing a lot of research into this and it seems that Mustang owners everywhere are obtaining sync capabilities with this kit. I've been on several different forums and have seen a lot of people having a lot of success with this. The crazy thing is that this is a $550 kit that is selling on eBay for $64. I just bought one and will try it out. I'll let everyone know what happens.

Here's one up for auction. I wish I had seen this one before I purchased mine. The part number is on the photo, which you can use to search around, but you're not going to get a better deal than this:

You will require a dash kit with some way to control your heater/AC. the radio buttons and HVAC controls are all on one PC board that mut be removed to install any radio.
