Ford Australia has introduced a raft of eye-catching new colours, as well as greater personalisation options for the MY2020 Mustang GT Fastback.
The model can now be optioned with a new Black Shadow Pack for $1,000. It adds:
- Black painted roof
- Black bonnet stripes
- Black side stripes
- Unique 10-spoke dark finish 19-inch alloy wheels
- Black grille Pony badging
- Black 5.0L guard badging
Those specifying the optional High-Rise rear spoiler will also be blackened when the Black Show Pack is ticked.
Besides the new enhancement pack, four new colours have been added to the MY2020 Mustang GT’s colour palette, including a heritage paint called Grabber Lime.
It’s one of several heritage colours, which in Australia have previously included Grabber Blue and Dark Highland Green. The ‘Grabber’ paintwork was first offered in North America on early 1970s Mustangs and is the inspiration for Grabber Lime.
“It’s lime green on steroids,” describes Barb Whalen, Ford colour and materials manager.
A second heritage colour called Twister Orange is said to give the Mustang a punchy aesthetic to match its guttural V8 engine. The final new colours for the Mustang are Iconic Silver, as well as Red Hot.
“These bright, vibrant retro colours are trending in design – in home furnishings, sportswear and even appliances,” said Whalen. “Aspirational and confident, they are fun, youthful colours that make a statement of how you want the world to see you and who you want to be. And your car is an extension of that.”
Ford has also expanded the Ford Service Benefits programme to the Mustang, which means that for the first four years/60,000km (whichever comes first), MY2020 Mustang owners will only pay $299 per A or B logbook service at participating dealerships.
It also includes a Service Loan Car, Auto Club membership (including Roadside Assistance), SYNC 3 sat-nav updates and Vehicle Report Card.
The 2020 Ford Mustang will hit Australian showrooms in November, with pricing and further details to be announced closer to launch.
