Ford Mustang won’t disappear despite SUV onslaught

As part of his recent interview, a Ford spokesman spoke about what the Mustang sports coupe will have in the near future. He hinted that the brand’s management does not plan to stop the sale of this car.

The iconic Ford Mustang sports car has been on the market for the past 56 years as a small sports two-door car with a front engine that powers the rear wheels. Notably, in 2021, this is the last car in Ford’s North American lineup that is not a truck, SUV or crossover. And so it should remain at least one more generation of the Mustang model.

At least that’s what the new report from the foreign publication Ford Authority says.

When asked about the future of the Mustang, Ford Mustang boss Jim Owens said that despite a very small share of Ford’s sales, the Mustang sports car segment remains fairly large. It is in fact the best-selling sports car in the world, although it technically only entered the global arena in its last generation, and most of its sales still go to the US market.

We know Ford is aiming for the next-generation Mustang due in 2022. However, Mr. Owens does not provide a definitive vision of how the Mustang might change in the future. We already have a Mustang Mach-E four-door electric crossover, and there are rumors that an all-wheel drive Mustang might appear in the next generation of the model. Rumors have it that a new 6.8-liter V8 engine could be under the hood of the Mustang in the near future.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the electric Ford Mustang-E began to be handed over to the first customers. It was important for the company to have time to start deliveries before the end of 2020. Now we can say that this goal has been achieved.
