The new-for-2006 V-6 "Pony Package"
includes a customized grille with GT-style round fog lamps and a
chrome bezel or "corral" around the traditional Mustang
prancing horse. Backing up this visual upgrade is a GT-inspired
suspension featuring a larger front stabilizer bar, the addition
of a rear stabilizer bar and P235/55ZR17 tires on painted cast-aluminum
wheels. With bright machined rims and unique tri-bar Pony center
caps, these are the largest wheels and tires ever fitted to a V-6
Further touches include Pony front fender badges,
lower door tape stripe, carpeted front floor mats with special brushed
chrome "Mustang" logos and a rear spoiler. Four-wheel
disc brakes with anti-lock braking system (ABS) and traction control
are also part of the package.
In the 2006 model year, Mustang GT also will
have two new 18-inch wheel and tire combinations – the largest
tires ever fitted to a production V-8 Mustang since the 2000 SVT
Cobra R model – and unique suspension tuning calibrated to
the larger treads. Mustang GT customers will be able to choose from
four wheel- and -tire combinations.
Inside, the industry-first, color-configurable
instrument panel offers the ultimate in personalization. Mustang
owners can mix and match lighting at the touch of a button to create
more than 125 different color backgrounds to suit their personality,
mood, outfit or whim.
Modern touches mix with Mustang history and
heritage. Chrome-ringed air vents are aligned vertically across
the dash, precisely in line with the gauges, and the steering wheel
has three spokes with a center hub marked by the horse and tricolor
bars logo, echoing the design of the 1967 Mustang.
Numerous st and ard features include one-touch
up/down power windows, power mirrors, keyless entry and power locks,
a heated rear window, interval wipers, air conditioning, speed control
and CD player.
