Ford has unveiled the Mustang 2016 model with minor updates, along with a series of new packages and styling options.
For the 2016 model year, both the Mustang fastback and convertible will mark the return of the California Special Package and Pony Package – two Mustang trim levels made popular in the 1960s.
Ford designers says fans of the Mustang have been clamoring for the return of hood vent-integrated turn signals for years, and in a nod to heritage the company is honouring the request, bringing back the design feature as standard equipment for owners of the 2016 Mustang GT. Secondary indicators in the hood vents were first offered on the 1967 Mustang.
“Mustang enthusiasts are not shy about telling us what they want,” said Melanie Banker, Mustang marketing manager, “and we’re constantly exploring ideas together with our engineering team to develop new features we know our customers will love. These new hood vent indicators for the GT model are a perfect example of us communicating customer feedback to Mustang engineers and the team responding with an exclusive new feature for owners of the 2016 Mustang GT.”
Also returning to the sixth-generation Mustang are over-the-top racing stripes direct from the factory.
Last seen on the Boss 302, a painted black roof option will also be available for the EcoBoost-equipped Mustang and Mustang GT.
For a stealthier look, the Mustang GT will come with an additional ‘Black Accent Package’. Fastback and convertible Mustang GT models with this package will feature custom 19-inch black-painted alloy wheels, black decklid spoiler, dark taillamp trim, and 5.0 and pony logos in black.
