The 2022 Ford Mustang ushers in a number of changes for the iconic pony car, including the introduction of new option packages and colors, as well as a 10 horsepower and 10 pound-feet of torque reduction in output for V8-powered models in the U.S. and Canada, as Ford Authority exclusively reported last October. However, it also seems that V8-powered 2022 Ford Mustang models are getting a bit more expensive, in spite of the fact that they’re not quite as powerful as before.

2022 Mustang GT and GT Premium models – in both fastback and convertible body styles – are getting a $165 price increase for the new model year, while the Mach 1 will be $600 more expensive. It’s unclear if Ford’s 5.0L Coyote V8 is directly responsible for these price increases, but 2022 Mustang models powered by Ford’s 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 are priced the same as last year, while the Mustang’s destination and delivery charge remains unchanged as well.
In addition to these price changes, the 2022 Mustang adds seven new colors to the lineup: Atlas Blue, Brittany Blue, Cyber Orange, Dark Matter Gray, Eruption Green, Mischievous Purple Metallic, and Grabber Blue Metallic. Also new for the 2022 model year are the Ice White Appearance Package, Coastal Limited Package, and Stealth Package, as well as a slightly revised California Special package.
As Ford Authority reported back in November, 2022 Ford Mustang production is already underway at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant, though production was temporarily paused last month – idle time that was directly related to the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage.
