Anniversary cars are based on premium trims of each model and will feature a new Heritage Blue paint color, exclusive wheels, satin chrome trim and 50th anniversary badges on the outside. Interiors get black upholstery, silver accent stitching, silver seatbelts and anniversary logos on the front seats and floor mats.
