The pony car gains a blacked-out Stealth Edition for the EcoBoost car and a revised California Special model for the GT.
With all the hubbub surrounding the electric Mustang Mach-E, Ford is attempting to bring some more attention back to the classic pony car with a few new appearance options. The 2022 Mustang will offer a new Stealth Edition option for the base four-cylinder EcoBoost model, while the V-8–powered GT features an updated version of the classic California Special variant.
The Stealth Edition’s most noticeable changes are the clear taillights shared with the previously revealed Ice White Edition and the black trim for the badges and side mirrors. It also has 19-inch wheels and a rear spoiler, plus a badge in the instrument cluster. Ford has yet to reveal a price for the Stealth Edition, but it will be an option package available on the EcoBoost Premium model and is offered with blue, grey, silver, or black exterior colors.
The California Special, a familiar nameplate to anyone who has followed the Mustang’s history, is available for either the GT coupe or convertible. The latest version of the GT/CS features a black grille, stripes, badges, and a scoop on the rear fender. There’s a strut tower brace under the hood, while the coupe features a spoiler and the convertible comes standard with a spoiler delete. Suede trim is found inside, and the California Special can now be combined with the GT Performance Package that features upgraded brakes, suspension tweaks, a limited-slip differential, and a staggered 19-inch wheel and tire setup with Pirelli summer tires.
Ford says that orders open for the 2022 Mustang lineup later this year, with cars arriving at Gary Crossley Ford in Kansas City in the first quarter of next year.
