2021 Ford Mustang Deletes Integrated Turn Signals On Some Models

The Ford Mustang has offered Heated Mirrors with Integrated Turn Signal Indicators for a few years now – most recently as standard equipment on cars equipped with either the 200A EcoBoost Premium standard package, 400A Mustang GT Premium standard package, 201A EcoBoost Premium High Package, and 401A GT Premium High Package. However, the 2021 Ford Mustang will see some changes in the availability of this feature.

The 2021 Ford Mustang equipped with either the 200A or 400A packages will no longer come with the integrated turn signals, though they are still included as standard equipment on cars with the 201A or 401A packages. The integrated turn signals add an extra element of visibility when the driver activates the indicators, making them a bit more visible than cars equipped only with turn signals on the front of the car.

In addition to this, the 2021 Ford Mustang has a few other changes in store for the new model year. That includes the addition of the Mach 1, as well as the discontinuation of the Shelby GT350, Bullitt, and Performance Package 2.

Additionally, as Ford Authority recently reported, the 2021 Mustang will come standard with a host of safety features on all series, including Ford Co-Pilot 360, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, BLIS (Blind Spot Information System), Lane-Keeping System (includes Lane-Keeping Assist, Lane-Keeping Alert, and Driver Alert), Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), which includes Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning, Dynamic Brake Support, and Rain-Sensing Wipers.

Pricing has also gone up across all trim levels, as we recently reported. Otherwise, the 2021 Ford Mustang is essentially unchanged from the 2020 model, with no other updates or facelift of any kind. Those looking for the all-new S650 Mustang will reportedly have to wait until late 2022 to see the car enter production for the 2023 model year. Like the current S550, the next-gen Mustang will reportedly have an eight-year life cycle.

We’ll have much more on the Mustang very soon, so be sure to subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Mustang news and around-the-clock Ford news coverage.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Odd and disappointing that they would not make a rather simple passive safety feature such as integrated turn signals standard across all trims and packages.

    I don’t understand ford. They need to get rid of some of those bean counters. People comment on my turn signals. I bet if camaro was leading the mustang in sales they wouldn’t even consider making the turn signals even more optional. Should be standard in every mustang.😆

    This makes no sense. They add all those hi-tech safety measures across the model line, yet delete a simple safety measure on SOME lines? Who is making these decisions?

  4. Rich Galinovsky

    STUPID decision on the turn signals !!!!

  5. First OnRaceDay

    I think they look great and seem like like they add safety, but are there any actual insurance company data to say whether they prevent more accidents than not having them?

    It’s all about money. I don’t like the fact they took out the CD player. They should keep it as an option.

    I’ve had enough of Ford’s relentless cost-cutting, from single-note horns to missing mirror turn signals and approach lamps to cost-cut advertising that does _nothing_ to make people desperate to buy a Ford or make other people jealous of Fords (the whole _point_ of advertising), they’re on their way to cost-cutting this 15-new-Fords customer to another brand. My wife’s 2021 Escape Titanium has no approach lamps or mirror turn signals, not to mention no options for heated rear seats or cooled front seats, and no rear-seat release levers that the European Escapes/Kugas have. My 2020 Explorer’s mirror turn signals now have one cost-cut _DIM_ LED instead of the five bright LEDs in the last-gen 2019 Explorer. My neighbor’s $56,000 2019 Edge ST has a single-note horn, it sounds like a 1993 Cavalier, and I’ve heard Chevy people _mock_ it.

    Good work, Ford. How about cost-cutting a few 7-figure idiot executives?

    Unless this stops, our next vehicles won’t be Fords.
