A 2018 Ford Mustang GT was photographed in the wild recently wearing Ford’s revamped Black Accent Package, giving us a decent look at what’s soon to come. Where the package is currently available only on V8-powered GT models, it will be added to the base EcoBoost Mustang’s list of options as well from 2018, according to a leaked Order Guide Companion.
Website Motor1 has the photographs of the car.
The spied 2018 Ford Mustang GT features a menacing black grille with a blacked-out pony badge, black wheels, a black decklid spoiler, and a painted black roof. The “GT” badge on the rear decklid is also black, as are the side “5.0” badges. The EcoBoost model, which obviously lacks any sort of “5.0” or “GT” badging, will see its front and rear pony badges rendered in black, while incorporating the same wheels, spoiler, grille, and painted roof.
Ford seems to have taken a greater interest in model personalization of late, as evinced by the seven different grilles and other styling tweaks soon to be made available on the 2018 Ford F-150, and Euro-market models like the Fiesta Zetec Black and White Editions. With Ford’s decisions to offer the Black Accent Package on base EcoBoost models from 2018 and add a unique grille and black painted roof to the list of included tweaks, it looks like the Mustang, too, is getting in on the personalization craze.
