2016 Ford Mustang
The big redesign may have come last year for the iconic Mustang, but Ford isn’t idling for 2016, announcing some small but noteworthy changes.
In a nod to the car’s past (and their inquiring customers), Ford is bringing back the turn indicators integrated into the hood vents (first seen on the 1967 Mustang), which will now be standard on the Mustang GT. Premium Package models also get the new Sync 3 infotainment system, another change that customers and critics were calling for. New options include black or silver racing stripes, a Pony Package for the four-cylinder EcoBoost model, and a Black Accent Package for the V8 Mustang GT. The California Special package available on the Mustang GT Premium features 19-inch black machined alloys, hood and side stripes, a black spoiler, mirror and hood vents, dark tail lamp accents, a front splitter, a special grille and gas cap, strut tower brace and an interior decked out in black leather with suede inserts and red stitching. Lastly, the 2016 Mustang GT convertible is now also being offered with the Performance Package, with a manual transmission, limited-slip differential, six-piston Brembo front brake calipers, bigger radiator, retuned electronics, beefed-up suspension and more.
