What’s new in 2016 Ford Mustang

Everyone is waiting in anticipation for the brand new 2016 mustang which will be available in the near future. But you might be wondering what kind of features will the 2016 model offer and what you can be looking forward to. Well here is a rundown of what you can expect.

Ford has designed multiple packages designed to fit the needs and wants of their customers and have taken into account what we’ve been asking for.

This mustang model is said to marry both the past and present with features and style that we have come to love with previous mustang models and a modern set of improvements to match our present day expectations and needs.

A first feature that we should mention is the hood-vent turn signal indicators which are similar to the 1967 model, which they since have made a standard for all mustang GTs.

Another main feature that stands out is the California Special otherwise known as the GT/CS package which is available for the GT premium. Special wheel choices and stripe graphics as well as blacked out trims and even a interesting new front grille are just some of the features of this package.

They also have a GT convertible available with the option to add a performance package with larger brakes and tighter suspension and a sweet set of 19″ wheels as well as other game changing options.

If you are a fan of the blacked out look ford gives you the option to choose the Black Accent Package for the mustang GT. it includes a black deck spoiler and dark tail lamp trim as well as the 5.0 and logos in black.

The performance package now has new luster nickel finished wheels as well if you prefer them over the backed out version.

Direct from the factory you can now get over the top pin stripes (in black or silver) for the Eco Boost and GT Mustangs as well as chrome window and tri-bar pony logo on the grille. You can also choose to get side stripes if you like.

The 2016 Mustang comes in all previous colors of the last model but introduces shadow black in place of standard black.

And for those of you who were unhappy with the My Ford Touch, Ford has finally replaced top option models with the new SYNC 3 interface. We are hoping this makes up for the past issues and puts mustang back on track in this area.

With all the options and packages available we are excited to see this one hit the dealerships. It feels like ford really took there customers needs into consideration on this model and gave us a great Mustang.

All in all this Mustang is sleek and really stands out in the crowd.
