2016 Ford Mustang Front AngleFor the 2016 model year, Mustang fastback and convertible welcome the return of the iconic California Special Package and Pony Package —two iconic Mustang trim levels made popular in the 1960s. Several other new options, including new stripes and wheels, allow owners to make their pony car as individual as they are.

Fans have been clamoring for the return of hood vent-integrated turn signals for years, and in a nod to heritage Ford is honoring the request, bringing back the popular feature as standard equipment for owners of the 2016 Mustang GT. First offered on the 1967 Mustang, secondary indicators in the hood vents would come to represent an iconic piece of pony car DNA. Now, this segment-exclusive feature will serve as an additional “heads-up” for Mustang GT drivers.

2015 ROUSH Performance Ford Mustang Stage 3 Front AngleThere is nothing quite as intense as the raw power of a 5.0L V8 engine. Add ROUSH Performance’s new 2015 2.3L TVS supercharger to the mix, and you’ve got a whole new beast on your hands. The all-new 2015 Stage 3 Mustang is a force to be reckoned with.

The 2015 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is the most powerful and well-balanced production Mustang to launch out of the ROUSH Performance garage. For starters, standard features include a ROUSH Quad-Tip exhaust (with the ROUSH Active Exhaust System as an optional add-on), and of course, the fierce new “R7” aerobody, complete with graphics and badging. Twists and turns are no match for the RS3, which comes equipped with a standard single adjustable coilover suspension system, with an optional competition-tuned 3-way adjustable system available.
