On the exterior, courtesy of the 'Gravity' treatment, the Mohave flaunts a new all-black radiator grille, which is inspired by the arrowheads. Also, it gets a new design for the 20-inch alloy wheels that incorporate snowflake crystal effect and black finish. The interior of the Mohave Gravity also features a few changes in comparison to the regular version of the car.

Mood lighting to the door panels is also specific to the Gravity badge.
