In a move similar to Tesla’s recent OEM offerings, another auto manufacturer is now offering a factory paint protection film (PPF) option—but only one variety and for one of its vehicles. 

Ford is now offering factory PPF for its Mustangs.

Ford Motor Company recently announced that matte clear film, a product of PPG Industries, is now available for its Ford Mustang line straight from the factory on its EcoBoost, GT and Dark Horse styles and all convertible models by Q4 2024. 

“Mustang has been about driving freedom and freedom of expression for 60 years, and our new Matte Clear Film provides a whole new way for customers to make Mustang their own,” says Laurie Transou, Mustang chief program engineer. 

Deliveries are expected to be in June and the price of the installation is $5,995 for the full vehicle—matching Tesla’s prices for color PPF. It comes with the same 3-year/36,000-mile warranty that applies to the car itself.  

Auto bloggers who seem unfamiliar with paint protection film’s superiority to vinyl made comments on the sticker price.  

“Considering a full-body vinyl wrap costs about $4,000 for a full-size SUV, Ford’s optional matte clear film package seems quite steep at an additional $5,995 above the MSRP,” wrote Alvin Reyes in Slash Gear.
