Refreshed 2020 Ford Mustang GT offers new wheels, seats and digital instrument cluster

The refreshed 2020 Ford Mustang GT has been announced boasting new colours from Ford’s heritage collection, new alloy wheels, and more.

The refreshed 2020 Ford Mustang GT is being offered with new 19-inch alloy wheels, a new 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster and Recaro seats. But the headline grabber is the option of two new paint colours from the heritage collection, Grabber Lime and Twister Orange. The updated Mustang GT arrives in Australia from November this year.

Making the announcement today, Ford Australia boss, Kay Hart, said, “The Mustang is an icon, and Australian customers have been asking for more ways to customise and individualise their particular vehicle, so we’re pleased to offer more ways of doing just that”.

“These new offerings help make the 2020 Mustang really stand out, and for the first time, our Ford Service Benefits program, with our Service Price Promise, is part of Mustang ownership, too.”

The new paint colours bring the number of Ford heritage hues offered for Mustang up to four in this country, along with Grabber Blue and Dark Highland Green. These colours first appeared on Mustang back in the 1970s.

“It’s lime green on steroids,” said Barb Whalen, Ford colour and materials manager when describing Grabber Lime. “This colour traces back to a Mustang heritage colour while bringing it forward with more modern, dynamic pigments and bold new energy.”

Capping off the new colour range for Mustang is a fresh Iconic Silver, as well as the appropriately named Red Hot paintwork.

“These bright, vibrant retro colours are trending in design – in home furnishings, sportswear and even appliances,” said Whalen. “Aspirational and confident, they are fun, youthful colours that make a statement of how you want the world to see you and who you want to be. And your car is an extension of that.”

Ford is offering Mustang buyers access to what it calls the Black Shadow Pack. This pack is exclusive to Mustang GT Fastback and retails for $1000. It’s made up of a black painted roof, black bonnet stripes, unique 10-spoke 19-inch alloys, black grille and Pony badging, and black 5.0L guard badging. Choose this pack and you’ll also get the optional high-rise spoiler in black.

The Black Shadow pack takes the Mustang GT Fastback to another level,” said Mustang Chief Program Engineer, Carl Widmann. “It gives the classic Mustang lines a sinister flavour that really adds a raciness and competition look to it, and harks back to some of the graphic and decal packages that we’ve had in the past.”

Ford is pushing hard with its service offering, and has expanded its Ford Service Benefits program to Mustang owners means that for the first four years/60,000km (whichever comes first), eligible customers will be able to service their MY2020 Mustang for a maximum recommended price of $299 (incl. GST) per A or B logbook service at participating dealerships.
