Ford Mustang Updated For 2016 With New Styling and Toys


Including a pretty slick California package.

Just over a year after Ford took the wraps off the all-new Ford Mustang, the Blue Oval has decided to give the global pony car some fresh updates for 2016. As we reported yesterday, the main change are hood vent-mounted turn signals for the Mustang GT, a tribute to the 1967 model. A new SYNC3 infotainment system, a black roof, and black or silver racing stripes are other notable additions for 2016.

Ford has also introduced some new packages, including a ‘Pony Package' for the Mustang EcoBoost Premium that adds a tri-bar pony emblem, unique 19-inch rims, side stripes and chrome window surrounds. A new Black Accent package has also been rolled out for the Mustang GT, which adds a black rear spoiler, black-finish 19-inch alloys, and black emblems. Mustang GT buyers can also opt for the California Special, which adds a front splitter, hood and side stripes, a rear spoiler, a refreshed grille, strut tower brace and 19-inch alloys. Inside, the package includes Ebony leather and Miko suede seats, and aluminum dashboard trim.
