The 2015 year model marked an all-new Mustang that received independent rear suspension and a complete redesign inside and out. You might expect that with the car only having been on the market for a single year model, the 2016 model would be identical. Ford has announced that it is making some changes to the 2016 version of the Mustang in the form of new option packs.
One of the new features that the 2016 model will get is a throwback to the 1967 Mustang, and that feature is turn signals in the hood vents. Hood vent turn signals will be standard for all 2016 Mustangs. Ford has also announced the return of the California Special package for the Mustang GT Premium.
The GT/CS will return to the streets this fall and will include 19-inch ebony painted machined aluminum wheels, ebony leather/Miko suede seat inserts with red contrast stitching and an embossed logo. GT/CS cars will also get special door panel inserts, carpet with red stitching, aluminum dash finish with a California Special badge, hood stripes, and a black pedestal spoiler. The strut tower brace also gets a California Special Logo and buyers get dark tail lamp accents, black painted mirrors, and hood vents.
Rounding out the package is a performance front splitter and a unique grille. Buyers of the Mustang GT convertible will also be able to buy the Performance Package if they opt or a manual transmission car. Other new options include new stripe packages, a black roof option, and a black accent package. The latter gives black wheels, black rear spoiler, dark taillight trim, and black emblems around the car.
