  • Mustang expands special-edition offerings for the 2022 model year with all-new Stealth Edition Appearance Package and new California Special that features GT Performance Package option

  • Available Stealth Edition Appearance Package gives Mustang EcoBoost® Premium fastback a blacked-out, sinister look straight from the factory; package includes clear LED taillamp covers from Mustang Ice White Edition for an unmistakable appearance

  • For the first time, the California Special will be available with GT Performance Package featuring a more aggressive suspension, Brembo brakes and wider tires for more thrilling performance, plus new signature appearance to commemorate the 1968 original; package is available on Mustang GT fastback and convertible

DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 6, 2021 – Adding even more personalization features and thrills for Mustang customers direct from the factory, Ford introduces an all-new appearance package and a performance-minded update for the 2022 model year.

Mustang, the world’s best-selling sports car*, will debut a first-ever Stealth Appearance Package available for the EcoBoost® Premium model, while Mustang GT California Special will offer for the first time ever a GT Performance Package option.

“Since 1965, Mustang has been synonymous with performance and play, and the 2022 model year continues that call with the new Stealth Edition and an updated Cali Special,” said Jim Owens, Mustang brand marketing manager. “Mustang owners have always loved personalizing their ride, and these new flavors of Mustang are ready to inspire and excite new enthusiasts.”

Orders for the 2022 Mustang, including Stealth Edition and California Special, open later this year. Vehicles are due in showrooms in the first quarter of 2022.

First-ever Stealth Edition joins Mustang lineup

Adding even more style to the 310-turbocharged-horsepower Mustang EcoBoost Premium model, the available Stealth Edition Appearance Package stays true to its name, giving customers a more menacing-looking fastback with uniquely blacked-out appointments.

The Stealth Edition Appearance Package features 19-inch Ebony Black-painted aluminum wheels, black pony badges, performance rear wing, black mirror caps and new clear LED taillamp covers, also shared with the new Mustang Ice White Appearance Package. Unique new interior appointments include a matte and gloss black instrument panel badge and lighted sill plate.

“The black accents really give the car a whole new persona, sinister and sporty all at once,” said Owens. “Naturally, the package needed the right name. Stealth Edition says it all.”

The Stealth Edition is available in Atlas Blue, Carbonized Gray, Dark Matter and Shadow Black.

California Special adds excitement with GT Performance Package option

Since the first-generation Mustang, the California Special has represented a uniquely regionalized appearance package with special styling cues. The updated 2022 Mustang GT California Special embodies this tradition.

Based on the 2022 Mustang GT Premium fastback and convertible models, the latest California Special Appearance Package pays homage to the original version’s blacked-out grille, side racing stripes and rear fender scoop.

The heritage-inspired “GT/CS” side stripe trademark traces from the front fender to the signature rear fender scoop. A California Special badge in Ebony Black and Race Red script adorns the trunk lid, while the honeycomb grille with “GT/CS” badge provides a unique look. A larger front splitter from the GT Performance Package underscores the icon’s handling prowess.

A performance rear wing from the GT Performance Package is available for the fastback model, while spoiler delete is standard for the California Special convertible. The California Special wears unique five-spoke 19-inch painted machined wheels. Under the hood, this special edition features a signature strut tower brace with California Special badge atop its 5.0-liter V8 engine.

Interior appointments include rich black Miko® sueded-trimmed door inserts and sueded-trimmed seats with the embossed “GT/CS” logo and red contrast stitching, along with custom embroidered “GT/CS” floor mats. The instrument panel is finished in carbon hex aluminum with a signature California Special script badge on the passenger side.

As a California Special-first, the GT Performance Package is now available, enabling greater handling and driving dynamics for the most capable California Special ever.

The GT Performance Package adds an array of performance and handling features including Brembo six-piston front brake calipers, unique chassis tuning with heavy-duty front springs, larger tubular rear sway bar, overall lower ride height, K-brace, strut tower brace, front subframe V-brace, TORSEN® limited-slip differential, unique stability control and electric power steering tuning. Staggered 19x9-inch front and 19x9.5-inch rear wheels with Pirelli summer tires further the handling grip.

The California Special is available in Atlas Blue, Carbonized Gray, Cyber Orange, Dark Matter, Grabber Blue Metallic, Iconic Silver, Rapid Red, Shadow Black and Oxford White.

Nice to see M6G being the first to share this news! :like:

The Stealth package looks very similar to the Black Accent Package.......although this one's restricted to the Ecoboost. Be interesting to see of the Black Accent Package remains on the GT. Perhaps that's why Ford recently stopped orders for the '21MY Black Accent Package.


The California Special has always been a favourite of mine. I like all the changes (especially the option of the Performance Pack!).....but I did prefer the older style grille with the tri-bar pony badge.

It's good to see Ford making changes to the last year for S550 :rockon:

the CS looks like they hired some teenager from Japan again. over-badge much? 2 callouts is more than enough on the exterior and just one internally. Might as well plaster 'type R' all over the place with giant decals why don'cha.

Ford's design Team obviously knows nothing about "stealth". Stealth is having NO identifying markers at all - and is definitely not bright metallic blue.

They're throwing leftover parts from the parts bins, pulling names from a hat in the hopes it will stick and draw in consumers.

These (2) "new" offerings aren't anything special, and actually the one is so far removed from "stealth", it's all but boring and hilarious at the same time.

C'mon Ford....
