  • Ford says the matte paint film will start shipping on Mustang coupes by June and on convertibles before the end of the year.
  • The matte film option is available on all paint choices but is not available on certain graphics packages.
  • This matte paint protection film is priced at $5995 and comes with a three-year or 36,000-mile warranty.

It looks like Ford wants a piece of the paint protection film pie. Starting before the end of February, Ford is adding a matte paint protection film onto the ’24 Mustang’s option list.

This factory-installed clear matte film will be available on both coupe and convertible Mustangs, as well as performance trims like the Dark Horse. That said, this protective film comes with a hefty $5995 price tag.

Ford says this special coating comes from PPG and is designed to handle harsh automotive detergents that are often used at hand or touchless car washes. The film also is designed to repel bird droppings, road salt, and bug splatter.

Most importantly, it will better protect the finish underneath the paint from scratches or damage. The film also comes with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty.

Of course, this extra $5995 option comes with some hurdles. While this protective film is available on every color Ford offers for the Mustang, it’s not available on every package.

Ford says the matte coating isn’t available on California Special cars, or any cars with the additional graphics package.

But it is available on the Mustang Dark Horse as long as you delete the hood graphic and skip the stripe package.

If you wanted a matte-finish Mustang without the extra worries of dealing with matte paint, this could be money well spent. Ford says it will start shipping Mustang coupes with this matte film in June, with Mustang convertibles coming before the end of the year.
