2020 Ford Mustang

You probably know that the Ford F-150 is the best-selling pickup truck, but did you know Ford also has another best-selling vehicle? The Ford Mustang is the best-selling sports car in the world and holds the title for the world’s best-selling sports coupe for five years in a row.

In 2015, Ford started shipping the sixth-generation Mustang around the world. Since then, Ford has sold more than 633,000 Mustangs in 146 countries. The current Ford lineup includes 12 Mustang variants including the Mustang EcoBoost®, GT, BULLITT, Shelby® GT350, GT350R, GT500, and a range of performance packages and upgrades.

“We’re proud of our growing Mustang stable and performance variants,” said Jim Farley, chief operating officer, Ford Motor Company. “From Sweden to Shanghai, more and more driving enthusiasts are enjoying the feeling of freedom and the American open road in these new Mustangs. We are honored to serve our owners, enthusiasts and fans for 56 years and counting.”

For the most impressive, track-ready performance, choose the 2020 Mustang Shelby® GT500®. It comes standard with a 5.2-liter supercharged cross plane crank V8 that delivers 760 horsepower at 7,300 RPM. This Mustang model also comes with Launch Control, Selectable Drive Modes, and a 12-inch LCD Digital Instrument Cluster.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition is Already Sold Out

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E | Phoenix, AZ

The Ford Mustang Mach-E all-electric performance SUV may not come out for many more months, but the Mustang Mach-E First Edition is already out of reservation slots. As of December 30 of last year, some models such as the GT and Premium were still available, but that may have changed in the past few weeks.

Ford released a few pieces of data compiled from the Mach-E pre-orders, including that over a quarter of all orders came from buyers in California. There’s a small preference for all-wheel drive over rear-wheel drive — 55 percent of orders are AWD — while the extended range battery is much more popular than the standard range at 80 percent of pre-orders.

Ford first announced the new Mustang Mach-E, the first expansion on the Mustang lineup in its 55-year run, in November of 2019. The Mach-E is designed to deliver the thrilling ride of the Mustang sports car, plus the added utility of an SUV, topped off with all-electric performance that is both exhilarating and environmentally friendly.

Ford estimates that the Mach-E will have an all-electric range of around 300 miles, though EPA testing has not been completed yet. The Mach-E’s engine and electric motor combined will put out 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque, and Ford is tweaking the GT Performance Edition for leading acceleration at 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds.

Just because the Mustang Mach-E First Edition is sold out doesn’t mean you can’t get your hands on Ford’s exciting new electric SUV. Call Sanderson Ford and let us know about your interest in the Mach-E!

Owners will learn the ins and outs of their car and racing techniques both in the classroom and on the track, which sports America’s first-ever four-wide drag strip. Courses will teach cornering and how to most effectively brake and launch. Mustang customers will become intimately familiar with their Shelby GT500s as they learn about the drive modes and launch control feature.

The new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is the most powerful V8 ever produced by Ford. That, coupled with the quickest-shifting transmission ever included in a Mustang, requires mastery of the vehicle and great skill. Let Ford foot the bill so you can learn how to best drive your new Mustang.

Vehicle Preview: 2019 Ford Mustang

Ford Mustang

The 2019 Mustang Bullitt is making waves, accelerating us into the future with its exceptional power and performance. In April, the vehicle was made available to order, and Mustang enthusiasts have been flocking to dealerships ever since.

The 2019 Ford Mustang is a new Bullitt-edition model, predicated on the famous Mustang GT that appeared in the 1968 movie Bullitt. At 50 years old, the car still impresses, and the modern yet classic design of the new edition is sure to draw new Mustang owners as well as those who remember the film fondly. The film featured a 10-minute car-chase scene with the Mustang 390 GT at the center of it, cementing it as one of the most iconic vehicles in film history. It also helps that within the film, the cool Steve McQueen drove this Mustang around San Francisco’s streets.

The new Ford Mustang Bullitt offers ferocious power that is not for the faint at heart. It comes with a standard V8 engine that delivers a whopping 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Its engine — along with its other advanced equipment, including the Mustang Shelby GT350’s intake manifold — allow for the 2019 Mustang Bullitt to hit 163 mph. Its Dark Highland Green exterior color is another nod to film, looking both retro and trendy at the same time.

2017 Ford Mustang Sales Distinguish It Among Competitors

2017 Ford Mustang

When people talk about iconic American sports cars, some might mention the Chevy Camaro or the Dodge Challenger. None of them come close to the reputation and performance prowess of the Ford Mustang, however.

Last year, in 2017, the Mustang managed to stay one step ahead of the competition with the advent of the refreshed 2018 version. Ford Mustang sales continued to thrive amidst an industry-wide slump in sports car sales, thanks to the revamped 5.0-liter V8 engine, which enabled it to achieve the record of the fastest Mustang model ever built.

While the Ford Mustang itself saw a decline in sales between 2016 and 2017, it still stayed afloat when considering the industry’s overall sports car sales. For example, sales stats for the Chevy Camaro experienced a 6.6% drop; the brand sold 14,000 fewer vehicles than the Mustang. Meanwhile, the Dodge Challenger sold over 17,000 less units than the Mustang. In total, the Ford Mustang still managed to sell a whopping 81,866 vehicles in 2017.

Ford Mustang sales have taken a strong stance at the top of the industry ever since Ford introduced the next-generation model in 2014. Discover what makes the Ford Mustang so great for yourself, when you visit Sanderson Ford for a test drive.
