The 2016 model year Ford Mustang GT will feature turn signal indicators
located in hood vents and other changes when it goes on sale later this year.
The turn signal indicators are a heritage cue from the 1967 Ford Mustang and were apparently requested by fans. First offered on the 1967 Mustang, secondary indicators in the hood vents would come to represent an iconic piece of pony car DNA. Now, this segment-exclusive feature will serve as an additional "heads-up" for Mustang GT drivers.
For the 2016 model year, Mustang fastback and convertible also welcome the return of the iconic California Special Package and Pony Package -two iconic Mustang trim levels made popular in the 1960s. Several other new options, including new stripes and wheels, allow owners to make their pony car as individual as they are.
"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."
New Stripes, Wheels, Trims
Several new packages and options will be available for 2016 Mustang GT when it arrives in dealerships in the third quarter of 2015. Returning to the sixth-generation Mustang are over-the-top racing stripes direct from the factory. Offered in black or silver, the stripes are available on most color and trim packages.
Last seen on the Boss 302, a painted black roof option is now available for the EcoBoost-equipped Mustang GT.
For customers after a stealthier look, Mustang GT will offer a Black Accent Package this fall. Fastback and convertible Mustang GT models with this package will showcase special 19-inch black-painted alloy wheels, black decklid spoiler, dark taillamp trim, and 5.0 and pony logos in black.
