2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Gets Six Percent Price Increase

As inflation hits levels we haven’t seen in decades, the prices of all sorts of goods and services have also risen. That pertains to a number of Blue Oval models as well, which now includes the 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Since the 2022 Shelby GT500 carries over with no additional standard equipment for the new model year, this is also a straight price increase, though it comes in a bit less than the overall rate of inflation last year.

2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Price Change
Model/Trim Level 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 2022 +/-
GT500 $74,555 $70,300 +$4255
Destination and Delivery $1,195 $1,195 $0

The 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 gets a $4,255 price increase for the new model year, bringing its MSRP up from $70,300 to $74,555. That’s a relatively substantial dollar amount, but in terms of percentages, it’s around a six percent jump over last year, regardless. The price increase also comes on the heels of a small rise in the pricing of all 2022 Ford Mustang V8-powered models, as Ford Authority reported earlier this month.

While the 2022 Shelby GT500 isn’t getting any new standard equipment, there are a number of changes coming for the ultimate version of Ford’s iconic pony car. That includes the launch of an all-new Heritage Edition, which pays homage to the original 1967 Shelby GT500 with Brittany Blue paint and two different exterior stripe options – vinyl or hand-painted, which can be had in Wimbledon White or Absolute Black in the case of the painted stripes.

The 2022 Shelby GT500 also adds Code Orange to its exterior color palette, which is also available on the Ford Bronco Raptor and Ford F-150 Raptor. Finally, the high-performance model is dropping the Carbon Fiber Handling Package for the new model year, as Ford Authority reported last November.

    I went into my local Ford Dealer, Corwin Ford, to purchase/order a new GT 500 Mustang. This was going to be my first muscle car, I was so excited. I built the car through Ford’s website. The sales guy was very nice even when he informed me they add a 25% ($20,000) buyers premium to the $80k MSRP. I kindly said no and walked out.
    Ford your 6% mark up will result in a 31% markup by the time your loyal customers make it to the dealership to purchase one of these amazing vehicles.

    I sincerely hope that in a year or two the dealers are begging customers to come back to them. They are showing there colors that they really don’t care about the customer and building relationships even after said customer bought many vehicles from them. Loyalty is out the window. We’ve lost 30 years of ground. Back to the days where you shopped the vehicle to death and the best deal won the order. And the Service Depts are not servicing vehicles with hard to fix items cause they can’t get the skilled help they used to.
