It’s hard to become the best of the best, but Ford has managed to overcome obstacle after obstacle with its muscle car. Now the automaker is looking to revamp the iconic pony car less than a year after its latest redesign. Originally set to debut in 2022, the next-generation Ford Mustang is being pushed up to 2020.
The latest Mustang wasn’t redesigned too long ago, and a 2016 model currently starts at just over $24,000. Featuring better fuel economy and more power, the Mustang received an abundance praise from critics like Edmunds.
“Ford Mustang continues to distinguish itself as a muscle car with genuine crossover appeal,” the review stated. Receiving four and a half out of five stars, the Mustang is seemingly a hit. That begs the bigger question. Why a redesign so soon?
Unfortunately, no one seems to have an answer. Current speculation suggest fuel economy, emissions, or safety standards could be the culprit.
The report comes from an accounting and consulting group by the name of UHY Hacker Young. According to the report, the next-generation Mustang will begin production in May 2020. The current Mustang will cease produce in April that same year.
