2019 Mustang Includes the Return of California Special

In 1968, Ford launched the Mustang California Special, and it was a smash hit. Now, as the 2019 Mustangs prepare to hit showrooms, Ford has announced this special package will return.

While not a carbon copy of the original, the 2018 Ford Mustang California pays homage to the 1968 model with similar design cues. These include a fading stripe that runs from the “5.0” badge on the side to the rear fender scoop, a black-and-red California Special badge on the trunk lid, a blacked-out grille, the Performance Pack 1 front splitter, and unique five-spoke wheels.

The interior gains black Miko suede seats with “GT/CS” embossed into them, red accent stitching, “GT/CS” embroidered floor mats, and signature California Special script badges.

There are other updates for the 2019 Mustang, and they include a Bang & Olufsen B&O Play audio system with 12 speakers and a 10-channel 1,000-watt amplifier, new rev-matching technology, an active valve performance exhaust system on EcoBoost models, and a few new colors. The latter includes elocity Blue, Need for Green and the Bullitt-exclusive Dark Highland Green.

The 2019 Mustang and the all-new California Special model will hit showrooms in the summer of 2018. Pricing remains unknown, but we should learn more on that soon.
