2007 Ford Mustang GT
The Launch of a New Appearance Package
Buyers who wanted to dress-up their Mustang GT could for the first time opt for the GT appearance package.
The 2006 Mustang GT was pretty much a carryover year but 2007’s GT got several upgrades worthy of mentioning. Buyers who wanted to dress-up their Mustang GT could opt for the GT appearance package. This package included a non-functional hood scoop, rolled chrome exhaust tips and a decorative plastic engine cover with a running horse emblem.
For 2007 all Mustangs (including the GT) received an auxiliary audio input jack as standard equipment. New optional equipment included front heated leather seats and Sirius satellite radio. Rounding out the changes for 2007 was the addition of Grabber Orange to the Mustangs colour palette.
The 2007 Mustang GT has two options packages: the deluxe and premium. Both packages include the 4.6 liter, over-head cam, 3 valve, V8 engine; stainless steel dual exhaust; TR3650 5-speed manual transmission; fog lamps; rear spoiler; performance tires; 17 inch premium painted cast aluminum wheels, and power adjusted 6-way drivers seat with power lumbar. The GT deluxe package comes with the standard stereo and cloth seats while the GT premium package comes with the Shaker 500 audio system and leather seats.
There was also the California Special Edition package. Available only on GT Premium models the California Special recalled another special edition Mustang from 1968 by the same name. The exterior of the GT/CS was adorned with unique front fascia and chin spoiler that extended 1.5-inches lower than the standard GT. Body side scoops located just aft of the front doors and unique tape stripes with the GT/CS logo were affixed to the sides of the car. At the rear the GT/CS wore a unique rear bumper with an air diffuser and a pair of chrome rolled exhaust tips. The package also included a set of 18-inch Bullitt style polished-aluminum alloy wheels along with the appropriate sized rubber. Inside, the black leather seats were trimmed out with either Parchment or Dove leather inserts. If the buyer desired even more pizzazz the GT appearance package could be added to a California Special.
The 4.6-liter all-aluminum V8 in the 2007 Mustang had three-valve heads and was good for 300 horsepower. It had an aluminum block so weight was down 75 pounds versus the prior cast-iron design. Add 40 more horsepower than the 2004 engine and take away that kind of weight and you saw a big improvement in overall performance and not just in a straight line. 0 to 60 mph for the 2006 Mustang GT was over in 5.1 seconds and the quarter mile took 13.7 seconds at 103 mph.

Ever so called expert who writes about the 2007 Mustang GT makes the identical mistake. They ALL state the Manual transmission variant came with a 3.55, gear, however that repeatedly stated specification is inaccurate. ALL 2007 GT mustangs, sporting the Tremec TR3650 manual transmission, got the 3.31 ring and pinion gear standard. The 3.55 ring and pinion gear was a special order item. The 2007 Mustang brochure makes this point clear….
My 2007 Mustang GT came from the factory with the CG axle, which is the 3.31 ratio.
