Its just the automakers taking advantage of a craze that has hit the kids aftermarket. The automakers have used cold air induction for years (as has been mentioned), but all those kids out there gotta have a fancy chrome "CAI" with a cone filter on it. So apparently Ford has decided to let them know that they already have one and the buyers don't need to go out and buy another one.

XR7-4.6,

Actually, the air intake system on the 2010 Mustang is different from previous model years. On the new system, there is only one airbox inlet, and it is located so that it only draws outside ("cold") air. The airboxes on previous model years had either one inlet inside the engine compartment, or one inside plus one outside. The temperature rise of air entering the engine intake system is reduced.

Manufacters take advantage of the fact that the general public doesn't know any different. Most take the word of the sales rep as gospil. They take the car to Pep Boys for an oil change, and figure the maint. is done. They only check the tire for air when someone tells them "hey buddy, your tires about flat!". :D
