2022 Ford Mustang GT California Special Gets More Special

Plus a new Stealth Edition model comes to the Mustang line.


As Ford does now and again, it is introducing a few special-edition models to the Mustang lineup. For 2022, those special-edition Mustangs include a revived GT California Special, as well as a first-ever Stealth Edition for the four-cylinder Mustang EcoBoost variant. In another first, the California Special is available with the Mustang’s GT Performance package, so you can have your California style and rip with it, too.


GT California Special, Now More Special

The California Special, adorned by the “GT/CS” lettering on its flanks, has graced the Mustang family on and off since the 1960s. Back then, the CS combined numerous unique styling touches from throughout the Mustang lineup—including Shelby-style taillights—a tradition that continues on this new 2022 Mustang GT/CS. There are GT Performance-pack-style enhancements, including an aggressive front bumper, along with a honeycomb grille, prominent side intake scoops (they’re fake but look cool) ahead of the rear wheels, and side stripes incorporating the iconic GT/CS lettering.

Coupes are available with a sporty rear wing (independent of the GT Performance pack), while convertible GT/CS models come standard with a wing-delete setup. Machined 19-inch wheels, a GT/CS badge in the grille, and red-and-black lettering for the rear decklid round out the California Special’s special add-ons. Buyers can choose between Atlas Blue, Carbonized Gray, Cyber Orange, Dark Matter, Grabber Blue Metallic, Iconic Silver, Rapid Red, Shadow Black, and Oxford White paint options.

Most, if not all, of the California Special’s signature cues have been tried before. Now for the real news: For the first time ever, this traditionally style-focused special-edition Mustang is available with some serious hardware. Already based on the 5.0-liter V-8-powered GT, the 2022 GT/CS can be upgraded with the regular Mustang GT’s Performance package, which brings heavy-duty front springs, a larger rear anti-roll bar, Brembo-sourced six-piston front brake calipers, a lower ride height, additional underbody bracing, exclusive stability control programming, a Torsen limited-slip differential, and staggered-width 19-inch Pirelli summer tires.

Stealth Edition, Recognizable Game Plan

Despite the new-for-2022 Mustang EcoBoost Stealth Edition’s name, there isn’t much stealth about it. This is a blackout package, plain and simple, and thus should be familiar to anyone with even a tangential familiarity with the myriad “Midnight,” “Night,” and “Black” editions trotted out by various automakers in recent years.

Available on the 310-hp EcoBoost Premium trim, the Stealth Edition treatment includes the expected black-painted wheels (18-inchers here), black badges, black-painted door mirrors, black interior trim, and a rear wing. It’s “stealthy,” provided you only ever drive it around at night, with your headlights off. Don’t do that, obviously. As for when you can see the Stealth Edition, it’ll be in one of four available paint colors: Atlas Blue, Carbonized Gray, Dark Matter, or Shadow Black.

Pricing for both models has yet to be set, and order books will open later this year. On the Mustang GT, the GT Performance package adds $6,500, an upcharge we figure will carry over unchanged to the GT/CS.

2022 Ford Mustang GT California Special

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 19×9-inch front and 19×9.5-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.
