Ford is celebrating the 55th anniversary of the Mustang — and the fact that this iconic pony car has been the best-selling sports coupe in the world for the fourth year in a row, with over 113,000 cars sold worldwide. Additionally, the Mustang was the best-selling sports car in the US, with over 75,000 units sold.
According to Ford, the Mustang is available for purchase in 146 countries around the world, with more than half a million sold since 2015. The Mustang is particularly well known for both its impressive performance, unmistakable design, and its affordability. In other words, if you want supercar capabilities without breaking the bank, the Mustang is the right choice.
“We broke the mold when Ford launched the Mustang 55 years ago,” said Jim Farley, Ford president, global markets. “Nothing says freedom, the wind in your hair and the joy of driving like Mustang; it’s an icon. The roar of its V8 on a spring day, there’s nothing better. No wonder it’s the most popular sports coupe in the world.”
Ford recently celebrated the success of its Mustang with National Mustang Day on April 17. Set to become an annual event, this is one more way that Ford is dominating the industry.
