Ford Mustang California Special Gets Updates Inside and Out

Ford Mustang California Special Gets Updates Inside and Out

Ford has produced special edition Mustangs on a number of occasions, most recently for the 2016-17 model years. "This year further targets hardcore Mustang enthusiasts who want even more performance from BULLITT, while new technology including rev-matching on manual transmission equipped Mustang GTs and active valve performance exhaust on EcoBoost models means even more thrills". In reality, daily-driving a Mustang is wildly impractical but, dropping cash on the new 2018 Mustang California Special starts to make sense now that Ford gave it some modern tech making it easier to live with on a regular basis.

Besides the paint job, today's reiteration of the California Special Mustang involves a fair share of technology.

Ford did not release pricing information for the 2019 California Special.

On the outside, the California Special Mustang flaunts a fading stripe stretching from the 5.0 badge up front to the rear fenders, a blackened grille, a splitter donated by the Mustang Performance Pack 1 and five-spoke machined rims. Under the hood is the same 5.0-liter V8 putting out 460 horsepower and 42lb-ft of torque - it would be nice to get a little extra power for a special edition, but hey, if it ain't broke don't fix it. The GT/CS will join the Bullitt as new-again special editions.

Climb inside the new GT Calfiornia Special and you'll be greeted by seats trimmed in black Miko® suede with red accent stitching and embossed GT/CS insignias, paired with embroidered GT/CS floor mats. And now, for the first time, the B&O Play audio system comes to Mustang with a stunning 10-channel amplifier producing 1,000 watts across 12 high-performance speakers. It appeared on stage with a surviving dark Highland green.
