Ford’s iconic Mustang will return in 2016, with several special-edition package options, as well as numerous nods to the classic 1967 pony car. The Mustang fastback and convertible will be joined by the iconic California Special Package and Pony Package —two Mustang trim levels made popular in the 1960s. Several other new options, including new stripes and wheels, will allow also be offered.

“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.”
