Ford recently announced that it would be extending the life cycle of the sixth-generation Mustang by two years, which means this athletic performance car will not be replaced until after 2022. At that point, the next generation of Ford Mustang will hit the market for another eight-year cycle.
Building on a strong tradition of styling and performance, the seventh-generation Mustang is set to have a sporty design and a tuned powertrain. It will likely include the specially designed Roush Mustang as well. Currently, the 2020 model year comes with an available Jack Roush Edition Mustang that has a 775-horsepower engine under the hood. For the 2021 model year, you’ll also find a resurrected Mach 1 design, which is a limited-edition Mustang that has 480 horsepower thanks to a 5.0-liter V8.
What’s next for Ford? While they haven’t released all of the details, we do know that the next generation will likely be designed on the same CD6 platform as the Ford Explorer. This means there will be a larger frame, which can easily accommodate a hybrid powertrain and all-wheel drive.
If you’re in the market for a new pony car, the Mustang is the model for you. You can get behind the wheel of a Roush Mustang, available at North Brothers Ford, to experience jaw-dropping performance. You can also check out the Shelby GT500 – the most powerful street-legal car in existence. We can’t wait to see what the Ford brand develops next, even if we have to wait until after 2022.
