The Ford Mustang is a legend, not only among the Ford range of cars, but among its contemporaries as well. Since its introduction more than 50 years ago, its fame has left North American shores to other parts of the world. wade through let the 6th generation Mustang out of pocket for the public to see what was cooked in 2013 — as a 2015 model — and it was an instant hit.
In addition, Ford gave the 6th generation Mustang exciting new capabilities such as independent rear suspension. However, it marked the return of the four-cylinder, turbocharged 2.3-liter Ecoboost, to the regular V-6 and V-8 common to every Ford Mustang.
The North American market has had this exhilarating Muscle car since its founding in 1964. However, the 6th generation marked a change in the Ford Mustang’s status as a global car, and other Continents could then have dealerships with Ford Mustangs that had just left the assembly line instead of from third parties.
Other continents, especially Europe, are very happy because of this new development, as the elusive Mustang is now on their territory. In 2017, Ford gave European markets two exclusive Mustang editions that they could call their own; Blue Edition and Silhouette Edition.
The classic design cues of this impressive car are reminiscent of the Mustang’s glorious ancestors — it makes more sense to know that the Mustang’s Silhouette Edition is to celebrate the anniversary of the Ford muscle car.
It has new design cues inside and out, contrasting stripes on the body, and some dark elements.
Not to add to the pain on other continents where dealers don’t get their hands on this magnificent beast, we believe it’s fair to take out what the North American market missed in the Mustang Black Shadow Edition.
The 2017 Ford Mustang Shadow Black Edition Has Unique Design Cues
The 2017 Ford Mustang Shadow Black Edition has several unique features and design cues that stand out from the regular Mustang GT;
The special edition Mustang comes with black accents on the roof, hood and unique side lines. The car also has a special pony badge mounted on the grille, a 5.0 fender badge, and a unique rear spoiler.
Unlike the Blue Edition, which is only available in Blue, the Shadow Edition has more than one color option; Race Red and Grabber Blue are standard body colors while Platinum White and Triple Yellow are exclusive body colors. All colors are highlighted with contrasting black stripes, and Ford blacked out some striking elements on them.
The wheels of the car also got something special; The special edition Mustang also comes with 19-inch Y-spoke wheels in black. Good news — the differences between the regular and special editions don’t end here.
The front seats of the car have both heating and cooling features. The seats come with exotic black seats and instrumental panels. The door inserts have matching stitching, and feature Isofix rear seats. In addition, this car is equipped with parking sensors. Other cool features include the ShakerPro audio system with 12 high-definition speakers and a premium eight-inch subwoofer in the trunk. Better yet, Ford also equips it with a SYNC 3 satellite navigation system and an entertainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen. SYNC 3 comes with an application that allows drivers to find important places such as hotels, airports, parks…
