Pony Package includes old-school style grille badge

Car manufacturers are constantly looking toward the future, with added emphasis on developing autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles. As we inch closer to having self-driving vehicles, the design of these new cars changes to reflect new cultural sophistication. While Ford vehicles are becoming more technologically advanced, and the newest iterations of some vehicles are far removed from their original looks, a new addition to the 2018 Ford Mustang is proving that there’s still a market for nostalgia.

The 2018 Ford Mustang is getting plenty of updates and a newly redesigned exterior, but a recent announcement from Ford revealed a new package that will be greeted by Mustang aficionados with great enthusiasm. On EcoBoost® equipped 2018 Mustangs, the available Pony Package includes side stripes on the lower body, a tri-bar pony badge on the rear decklid, carpeted floor mats with an embroidered pony logo, and the iconic logo of the running mustang in a corral on the front grille.

Ford Mustang Badging 

2018 Ford Mustang with available Pony PackageThis badging recalls the ones that appeared on the first Mustang concepts in the 1960s. While the Ford Mustang has always had that wild horse iconography in some shape or form, the pony has been in and out of the corral since its inception. Most recently, the 2015 anniversary package brought the image back to light, and it’s exciting to see it again in 2018. While many manufacturers are steadily plugging forward with no concern for the past, it is great to see the Ford Mustang pay tribute to the history of the vehicle.

The 2018 Ford Mustang is set for release this fall, and there are plenty of exciting new features to choose from.  You can contact Sanders Ford to find out more about when the 2018 Ford Mustang will be coming to Jacksonville, NC area, and if you can’t wait to get your hands on a Ford Mustang, stop by to check out the 2017 model.
