Ford to offer 2019 Mustang GT California Special

Ford to offer 2019 Mustang GT California Special

New five-spoke wheels, blacked-out grille, and a front splitter borrowed from the Performance Pack 1 round out the cosmetic changes.

Ford is bringing back the California Special trim on its 2019-model-year Mustang, an appearance package that first entered production in 1968 and was last revived in 2007 and 2011. The new version draws cues to the original with a blacked-out grille, racing stripe and California Special logo placed on the lid of the trunk.

The original California Special is said to have roots in the original Mustang owners clubs and personalized orders from regional dealers. A "California Special" script badge adorns the dash on the passengers side. Now, the GT's six-speed manual transmission offers automatic rev-matching technology that predicts shifts and quickly matches engine rpms accordingly.

Customized to the acoustics of the interior, sound engineers tuned the B&O Play audio system to take both the static and dynamic states of Mustang into account to elevate the senses regardless of driving conditions.

The entire Mustang range will now come optional with a Bang & Olufsen 1,000-watt 12-speaker stereo system; and a new rev-matching feature in 5.0-litre manual-equipped cars to simulate heel-and-toe upshifts and smooth out downshifts.

The Ford Mustang GT California Special is back this summer!

When the class-exclusive quad-tip fully variable active valve performance exhaust hit the streets for Mustang GT for 2018, critics and customers alike raved over the deep throaty sound of the 5.0-liter V8 engine.

It also comes with options available on standard Mustang models, including a quiet start mode and customizable digital instrument cluster.

The first 2019 Mustangs will begin arriving in showrooms this summer.

Lastly, Mustang is adding two new hues to the color chart for 2019: Velocity Blue and Need for Green.
