Redesign Info

The Ford Mustang may see its next full redesign sometime in 2022. According to industry publication Automotive News, the next-gen Mustang could move to the same platform as the Ford Explorer. While that may seem far-fetched at present, the future of the iconic nameplate is certainly in store for big changes within the next several years.

Earlier this year, Ford introduced a Mustang-inspired electric SUV called the 2021 Mach-E. With a base price of about $45,000 before incentives, the vehicle is the brand’s first all-electric crossover. The model features a range of up to 300 miles in certain configurations. Having said all that, Ford has also teased a new Mustang Hybrid since 2017 with output said to rival that of the brand’s V8s.

An early fleet ordering guide says 2022 Mustang production will begin in January 2022 and that dealers may begin taking orders as early as October 2021. We'll have to wait to see if this release schedule will be impacted by the ongoing chip shortage affecting new car production.
