Additionally, Ford created special badging for the Sherrod V6 300S. The 2008 Mustang Sherrod was sold in a variety of colors, some of the more distinctive of which included Grabber Orange, Silver, and White with blue stripes on the hood, roof, and trunk.

The Latest Mustang Sherrod Edition

Ford continued to produce the Mustang Sherrod in the years following the 2008 release. The 2014 version is known as the Sherrod SSVT, a rear-wheel drive vehicle equipped with a 5.0L V8 engine, along with a wide range of features such as four-wheel disc brakes, aluminum wheels, and a leather steering wheel.
