Suddenly The Emojis Make Sense Now

The S550 Ford Mustang generation is in its twilight, but that hasn’t stopped new packages from debuting. Just last year, Ford pulled the sheet off of six, yes six, different S550 Mustang variants. We had the Mustang GT500 Heritage Edition, The Mustang Ice White Edition, the Mustang GT/CS the Coastal Limited Edition, and the Mustang Stealth Edition. And even as the S650 Mustang is expected to debut as soon as next spring, Ford isn’t done with the outgoing model yet.

Today, Ford teased a blacked-out package for the S550 Mustang that’s tentatively being called the “Black Accent Package.” But as you can see, the placeholder name kinda falls short of any charisma. So, Ford is asking the fans what it should be called. This would have been a good time to use the “Stealth Edition” name, but… oh well.

Ford asks you to go here to type in your best suggestion for what this new Ford Mustang package should be called. The message is as follows:

BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK

Black pony badges and black-painted aluminum wheels.

In the past, we’ve called it like it was: the Mustang black accent package.
But we think this signature package needs a signature name to match.

So we’re turning to a place known for good ideas and opinions: the Internet.
We want to hear your name ideas for the Mustang black accent package.

Oh, and by the way, we will not be including any offensive or inappropriate names, so please keep them family-friendly. Or else we’ll tell your mom.

So, no bad words. Got it. And other taken names like Obsidian (Jeep), Night Edition (Ram), or Midnight Edition (Chevrolet) probably won’t hold water, either. What say you, dear readers? Will you chime in? Will you name this new Ford Mustang black accent package?

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
