I scream, you scream, we all scream for pony car ice cream.
Orange Fury is one of the three new colors available on the 2018 Ford Mustang – along with Kona Blue and Royal Crimson. To celebrate this orange Creamsicle-like color, Ford will team up with ice cream company Coolhaus for a limited edition ice cream sandwich that takes inspiration from the shade.
According to Ford, Coolhaus’s Orange Fury ice cream sandwich features “zesty orange-flavored ice cream” between two orange-icing-covered Vanilla Whoopies. The Mustang-branded wrapper is also edible thanks to potato wafer paper.
Keep an eye out for a Mustang-festooned ice cream truck in New York City over the weekend because Coolhaus will be driving around giving the Orang Fury sandwich out for free. They’ll also be available from the company’s story in Culver City, California.
The 2018 Mustang goes on sale this fall, and Ford says that the configurator launches on July 25. The refreshed model features a more aggressive look with a low, arching hood and slanted LED headlights. Both the 5.0-liter V8 and 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder feature revised tunes, but the Blue Oval doesn’t have outputs for them yet. The powerplants are available with a 10-speed automatic now, though. Inside, there’s an optional 12-inch digital instrument panel.
A recently leaked order guide reveals some of the options to expect. Performance packages for the EcoBoost and GT adds a larger radiator, bigger rear sway bar, strut-tower brace, and 19-inch wheels; plus a front splitter, Brembo brakes, heavy-duty springs, and a K-brace exclusively for the GT.

In addition, the Premium Pony Package gives the EcoBoost a retro-inspired look by adding polished trim, stripes above the side sills, and old-school emblems. Inside, there are nicer floor mats.

Orange Is the New Snack: Ford Creates Mustang-Inspired Orange Fury Ice Cream Sandwich from Coolhaus
• This coming Sunday, Ford celebrates National Ice Cream Day with the Mustang-inspired “Orange Fury” ice cream sandwich – created using Coolhaus Premium Ice Cream
• Inspired by the new Orange Fury exterior color available on the 2018 Ford Mustang, treats are available on tour around New York City until Sunday and at the Coolhaus Flagship shop in the Los Angeles area this weekend
• Sandwiches feature a zesty orange-flavored ice cream between two Vanilla Whoopies, covered in orange icing and an edible wrapper made from potato wafer paper with edible ink
DEARBORN, Mich., July 14, 2017 – Two cool classics come together this summer as Ford introduces a limited-edition Mustang-inspired Orange Fury ice cream sandwich, created using Coolhaus Premium Ice Cream – the nationally celebrated sweet-treat brand known for unique, sweet-meets-savory flavors you can’t find anywhere else.
Just in time for National Ice Cream Day this Sunday, limited-edition ice cream sandwiches will be given out for free starting today for four days at various locations in New York City in a Coolhaus ice cream truck outfitted with 2018 Mustang decals. Ice cream lovers can also tingle their taste buds with the zesty sweets at the Coolhaus shop in Culver City, California, over the weekend.
Inspired by the new Orange Fury exterior color available on the 2018 Ford Mustang, the treats are the result of Ford color and materials design manager, Barb Whalen, engaging the creative Coolhaus product developers to capture the essence of the iconic pony car and its eye-popping new color.
“I typically focus on things like color research, leather seats and hand stitching, so this was definitely a bit different for me,” said Whalen. “It was fun applying some of those same design philosophies into helping Coolhaus create an ice cream flavor that really embodies the new Orange Fury color.”
The treats are made of two fresh-baked Vanilla Whoopie cookies covered in orange icing, sandwiched around a scoop of the one-of-a-kind Orange Fury ice cream, then wrapped in a unique Mustang-printed edible wrapper made from potato wafer paper with edible ink.
“I’ve always been a fan of the Mustang, and was super excited when they came to us with such a special project,” Coolhaus CEO & Founder Natasha Case said. “We thrive on helping our customers realize their vision and love to help create that special, one-of-a-kind experience – one that really makes an impact.
“We couldn’t be happier that one of the original American classics chose Coolhaus, a new American classic, as a way to add excitement to their latest innovation.”
Customization is an emphasis in the new 2018 Ford Mustang, from its 12 different wheel designs to its customizable 12-inch Digital Instrument Cluster. Performance and appearance packages extend the ability for customers to personalize their Mustang, as do three eye-catching fresh exterior colors – Kona Blue, Royal Crimson and, of course, the new Orange Fury.
To explore customization opportunities for 2018, Mustang fans will be able to build and price their very own pony car by visiting www.ford.com/mustang/2018 starting July 25. The 2018 Mustang is due to reach showrooms this fall.
