Ford Australia has just announced details and pricing for the 2022 model lineup in Australia. The 2022MY Mustang range is introducing updates to the Track Apps software, enabling users to use a Line Lock function while driving on a track. The feature will be standard on all 2022 Mustangs. In addition, the Mustang GT California Special (GT/CS) will be available to Australian customers for the first time.
Ever since the first-generation Mustang was released, the California Special represented a unique regionalized appearance package with unique styling cues. Based on the 2022 Mustang GT fastback and convertible models, the newest California Special Appearance Package pays homage to the original from the 1960s. With a blacked-out grille, lower bodyside accent stripe, and rear fender scoop, the heritage-inspired Mustang GT California Special side stripe traces from the front fender to the signature rear fender scoop.
