The next-gen Mustang will be unveiled in 2022, set for an 8-year production run
Ford's last true 'car' will get refreshed for the 2022 model year, and it should stick around for another 8 years after that
In a sea of SUVs and crossovers, the big, thirsty, all-American Ford Mustang shows the car industry that sex-appeal and affordable performance can still exist in our fast-changing market. And having spent a few days with a Mustang GT earlier last year, I can see why.
Earlier generations of the Mustang were ugly, showy, and largely terrible, but the new Mustang GT is a truly brilliant automobile.
And apparently, Ford agrees, because according to The Drive, Ford is cooking up its seventh-generation Mustang, code-named the S650, Ford's next pony car is set to hit dealerships sometime in 2022.
Suppliers have already been tasked with providing enough parts to push out just under 100,000 Mustangs a year, totaling 77,000 coupes and 20,000 convertibles. The new models will share both RWD and AWD architectures with other members of Ford's lineup such as the Lincoln Aviator and Ford Explorer.
