2019 MY Ford Mustang welcomes back the California Special

The new model year for the iconic Ford Mustang includes as its major highlight the return of the California Special model via a new limited-edition design package – but there are also other upgrades to speak of.

The return of the California Special is designed to reference the 1968 original while “celebrating modern Mustang performance and style” – and we’re pretty much seeing a trend here, with the return of the Bullitt name for the 50th anniversary of the famous movie it was featured in. The first California Special arrived back in 1968 with a bespoke allure inspired by the 1967 Shelby GT notchback coupe prototype – now the retro-flavored special edition is based on the powerful GT and arrives with a referencing blacked-out front grille and side body graphics together with Ebony Black and Race Red script California Special badges on the trunk lid. Ford also brought in unique five-spoke painted machined wheels and also uses the Mustang Performance Pack 1 splitter, along with a model-exclusive stick-on faux rear fender scoop.

2019 Ford Mustang GT California Special

Inside the cabin, the 2019 Mustang California Special has “GT/CS” embossing on the black suede seats with red contrast stitching, GT/CS-branded floor mats and additional badging on the dashboard. New for the entire range of the 2019 MY is the rev-matching technology for the Mustang GT and its naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 – still packing 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet (570 Newton-meters) of torque. Also, the GT’s driver-controllable active valve performance exhaust is also optional for the EcoBoost, and from Europe comes the Bang & Olufsen Play audio system with 12 speakers, 1,000-watt power, and a 10-channel amplifier. Also new are the Need for Green, Velocity Blue, and the Bullitt’s Dark Highland Green shades.
