The 2022 Ford Mustang will feature several changes and updates, the most prominent of which are a revised California Special package and three all-new appearance packages – Ice White Appearance Package, Stealth Edition Appearance Package and the as-yet-to-be-officially-announced Coastal Limited Package. In addition, the changes also include a 10-horsepower drop for the GT and Mach 1 models as a result of tightening emissions regs, as Ford Authority was first to report earlier this month. And now, Ford Authority has learned that another package is getting the axe for the 2022 model year: the Carbon Sport Interior Package.
Available on the 2021 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium and GT trims, the Carbon Sport Interior Package mixed a little bit of luxury and sportiness together within the confines of the wild stallion’s cabin. The package included door and seat inserts trimmed in Alcantara, plus carbon fiber for the instrument panel and shift knob. The Carbon Sport Interior Package joins the Pony Package in the discontinued pile for the 2022 Ford Mustang, as Ford Authority was also first to report.
Though there’s no direct replacement for the Carbon Sport Interior Package thus far (if at all), the 2022 Ford Mustang’s Ice White Appearance Package might just be the next best thing for dressing up the pony car’s interior. The Ice White Appearance Package includes the following:
- Ice White door trim panel
- Ice White instrument panel
- Unique white leather seat trim and white interior with white accent stitching
The 2022 Ford Mustang‘s loss of the Carbon Sport Interior Package is a small change ahead of a complete overhaul (redesign and re-engineering) for the 2023 Ford Mustang. Expected to be the start of the S650 era, the 2023 Mustang will be quite a different horse compared to the current S550 model thanks to a new exterior and interior, along with various powertrain and driveline changes.
As Ford Authority recently reported, all-wheel drive along with a hybrid version are expected to make its way to the Mustang. In fact, Ford CEO Jim Farley recently described the design of next-gen pony as being something his kid would like to have “on his wall, or on his phone.” In short, there will be quite the shake-up when the S650 era begins, whether with the 2023 Ford Mustang or later.
