For the 2021 model year, the Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium was available with the Pony Package, which included a handful of appearance upgrades. However, Ford Authority has learned from sources familiar with the 2022 Mustang launch that the 2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost will no longer be available with the Pony Package.
For 2021, the Pony Package included 9×8.5-inch polished aluminum wheels, a unique upper grille and Pony logo with a corral design, a side stripe, a tri-bar Pony badge on the rear appliqué, a bright beltline and window surround for fastback models, and premium carpeted floor mats with an Ebony embroidered Pony logo, all for a cost of $995. However, this package has been deleted for the 2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost.
In addition to the discontinuation of this package, the 2022 Mustang will undergo a few changes for the new model year. As Ford Authority exclusively reported yesterday, that includes a reduction of 10 horsepower and 10 pound-feet of torque for the GT and Mach 1’s 5.0L Coyote V8 due to slight alterations made to satisfy emissions requirements.
Also new for 2022 are the Ice White Edition Appearance Package and the Stealth Edition Appearance Package, as well as an updated California Special Appearance Package, which give customers a number of different looks for the latest Mustang. The 2022 Mustang is also expected to receive a handful of as-yet-unannounced new exterior color options, though some may replace options that exist on the 2021 model.
Order banks for the 2022 Ford Mustang are already open, with deliveries currently scheduled for the first quarter of 2022. However, as Ford Authority recently reported, the all-new S650 generation of the Mustang is due to arrive for the 2023 model year, which will bring about some evolutionary changes to the long-running pony car.
