There’s seemingly never a year that goes by without a big, cool new change to the Mustang lineup. For 2022, Ford is offering up a pair of new options for its prized pony lineup: the Mustang Coastal Edition and the Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition.

Perfect for cruising, the 2022 Mustang Coastal Limited Edition can make your trips through Pittsburgh feel like a run down the Pacific Coast Highway. Building on the Mustang EcoBoost® Premium fastback and convertible, this new package adds 19-inch machined-face aluminum wheels, exclusive vinyl side stripes, and unique badging.

If you’ve got your eye on the 760-horsepower Mustang Shelby GT500, the new Heritage Edition might just be for you. Paying homage to the classic 1967 Mustang Shelby GT500, this car gets Brittany Blue exterior paint (also optional for the Coastal Edition) and your choice of two different Wimbledon White over-the-top racing stripes.

Ford is also expanding the color palette for 2022, offering the Shelby GT500 in Code Orange. This cool hue first seen on the F-150 Raptor makes this horse impossible to ignore — not that you could with the way it looks and drives. 

In total, Ford is adding eight new colors to the 2022 Mustang lineup, including a Mischievous Purple Metallic that we’re very excited to see in person.

Speaking of seeing the 2022 Ford Mustang in person, you can pre-order the Mustang Shelby GT500 Heritage Edition and Mustang Coastal Edition now ahead of their shared spring 2022 launch. Shults Ford Harmarville is your home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for all things Mustang. Check out our current selection online and give us a call when you’re ready to experience your dream car.

2022 Ford Mustang Gets Sleek with New Stealth Edition

Ford Mustang | Pittsburgh, PA

2022 is shaping up to be a big year for the Ford Mustang with the launch of several new special editions. One of the coolest by far is the first-ever Stealth Edition Appearance Package, available for the 2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost® Premium.

The 2022 Ford Mustang Stealth Edition lives up to its name with stylish black accents that add an aggressive, almost mysterious element. That includes cool-looking 19-inch Ebony Black wheels, a black performance rear wing, and a black pony badge at the center of the car’s iconic grille. You also get the same awesome clear tri-bar taillamps that you’ll find on the Ice White Edition.

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

The 2022 Ford Mustang EcoBoost® Premium is a great pony car on its own thanks to its 310-horsepower 2.3-liter EcoBoost®. When you add the Stealth Edition Appearance Package, you make it even clearer that you mean business when it comes to having fun.

In addition to the Stealth Edition Appearance Package, the 2022 Ford Mustang receives a new Coastal Limited Edition, Ice White Edition, and a Heritage Edition for the 760-horsepower Shelby GT500.

In case you missed it, the all-new Ford Bronco has erupted onto the scene as the red-hot must-have SUV of the year. Almost as if to drive that point home, the 2022 Ford Bronco is adding a pair of new colors: Eruption Green and Hot Pepper Red

Ford color and materials manager Barb Whalen explained that Eruption Green was chosen as a way to honor the Mallard Green hue offered on the original Bronco.

Ford, State Farm Want to Help You Save Money on Insurance

Car Dealer & Couple | Pittsburgh, PA

Ford and State Farm teamed up to show the impact that driver-assist technology has on car insurance costs. The duo teamed up to exchange information over the past year that led to a 20 percent savings on rates for drivers with advanced driver-assistance systems.

By giving State Farm access to its Vehicle Build Data tool, the insurance provider was able to see how vehicles equipped with ADAS technologies tend to have fewer and less severe claims. State Farm then passed savings onto those drivers by lowering their rates.

“We’re finding solutions for the future by grounding everything in data, research and insights,” said State Farm Vice President of Operations Craig Isaacs. “What’s unique about this project is we’re not just looking at the make and model of a vehicle, but ultimately to the individual safety features on each vehicle.”

Ford strives to keep drivers safer with the new Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of technologies. Including features like Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology is standard and available on a range of vehicles including the all-new F-150, Bronco Sport, and Mustang Mach-E.

Ford and State Farm will continue to expand its pilot for the insurance company’s customers who drive 2010 or newer Ford, Lincoln, or Mercury vehicles. If you want a new vehicle that works hard to keep you safer, check out the great selection of vehicles available at Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Picks Up IIHS Top Safety Pick

Mustang Mach-E | Shults Ford | Pittsburgh, PA

The multi-award-winning 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has won top honors for everything from its exceptional range to its incredible power to its premium quality. And now, thanks to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the all-new Ford Mustang Mach-E has taken home one of the top honors for safety.

This spring, IIHS named the all-electric 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E one of its Top Safety Pick award-winners. This honor joins an ever-growing list of accolades that includes 2021 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™, Green Car Journal’s Green Car of the Year, and Edmunds’ Top-Rated Luxury Electric Vehicle.

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E aced all six of the IIHS’ crashworthiness tests: driver- and passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints. It also earned superior scores for crash prevention and a good score for the LED headlamps standard on the Mach-E Premium, GT, and First Edition.

IIHS honored the Mustang Mach-E in close proximity to the IIHS-affiliated Highway Loss Data Institute releasing the results of a study on electric vehicle safety. Per HLDI, statistics from 2011-2019 found that EVs have 40 percent lower injury claim rates than vehicles powered by traditional internal combustion engines.

The future is certainly looking bright with Ford thanks to its continuous push toward total electrification. The Mustang Mach-E will be soon joined by the E-Transit van and the incredible 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. If you’d like to test drive the Mustang Mach-E, contact the team at Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We’ll put you behind the wheel and let you experience the future first-hand.

The first production version of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 sold for $500,000 on the first night of the 021 Barrett-Jackson Auction Scottsdale. That half-million-dollar haul went to JDRF, the longtime Ford partner whose goal is finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes. Ford and JDRF have worked together for 35 years, and Ford has raised more than $70 million for the cause.

On Saturday, the rights to the VIN 001 2021 Ford Bronco were up for grabs. There was plenty of action among bidders, and when all was said and done, a certain lucky someone dropped $1 million on the first Ford Bronco two-door to roll off an assembly line in 25 years. All of that money will support the Bronco Wild Fund, which Ford hopes will raise $5 million for important environmental causes.  

If you missed your chance to get the VIN 001 Ford Bronco two-door or Mustang Mach 1, fear not. The 2021 Mustang Mach 1 is arriving at Shults Ford Harmarville in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Is the Next-Gen Mustang Getting a New Windsor V8?

Is the Next-Gen Mustang Getting a New Windsor V8?  | Shults Ford

Ford is planning to unleash its seventh-generation Ford Mustang within the next few years, and it might have a new trick up its sleeve. The next-gen Mustang could get an all-new Windsor V8, according to the head of Canada’s auto labor union.

After negotiating a new deal between his organization and Ford of Canada, Unifor President Jerry Dias revealed that the Windsor Engine plant will build a new 6.X-liter engine. He later spoke with the media and said he believes this engine will be a 6.8-liter V8 offered in the F-150 and Mustang.

According to Hagerty’s Sajeev Mehta, this could be a “de-stroked 7.3 Godzilla,” referring to the enormous pushrod 7.3-liter V8 offered with the new Super Duty. He suggests this would use aluminum rather than an iron block and overhead valves in place of overhead cams. In practical terms? This new Windsor V8 for the next-generation Mustang could be an absolute beast.

We have a while to wait before we figure out what’s in store. Ford will continue to make the current, sixth-generation Mustang through 2022, so there are still a few more years to enjoy the latest version of our beloved pony.

And it’s still going strong, too. Not only is the Shelby GT500 the most powerful street-legal car Ford has ever made, but the legendary automaker is bringing back the iconic Mustang Mach 1 in spring of 2021. Ford is also growing the Mustang stable with the Mach-E, the all-electric performance SUV available now at Shults Ford.

If you love the Mustang, Shults Ford Harmarville is your destination. Check out our selection of pony cars in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, then give us a call to set up your experience behind the wheel of this all-American dream car.
