Ford May Introduce Next-Gen Mustang Two Years Ahead of Schedule


The new Chevrolet Camaro is spectacular. In our comparison test between the new Camaro SS and the Ford Mustang GT, the Chevy came away with the victory as we declared it to be “rippling with American muscle, but as sophisticated as European iron.” The stiff competition from Chevrolet could be one reason that Ford reportedly is moving up the debut of its seventh-generation Mustang.

Originally posted on the Mustang6G forum, this document shows Ford changing the production date from 2022 to 2020.


While it’s clearly still a rumor at this point, it makes sense. Mustang sales haven’t exactly taken a nose dive, but it’s not enjoying the same lead over the Camaro that it did last year. For the month of January, Mustang sales are down 12.8 percent compared to last year, while Camaro sales are up 11.2 percent.

We’re sure Ford would appreciate it if the Camaro weren’t selling so well, but it’s not bad news for Mustang fans. After all, who wants to wait until 2022 when you could get a new Mustang in 2020?
