Ford is expected to offer customers a hybrid drivetrain for the next generation of its popular Mustang A over the next two years, including a two-axle transmission.
Although there is no official confirmation from the company yet, according to informed sources, this American car giant is largely preparing for the next generation of Mustang. It should appear in production in the first half of 2023.
The Mustang, codenamed S550, was introduced in 2015, with minimal design changes. Until the mentioned 2024, another major refreshment will follow, probably in three years, when the mentioned hybrid will also be presented. The all-new platform for 2024, codenamed S650, will be a modified version of the current CD6 platform currently running Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator. Since these are SUVs / crossovers, this probably means that the Mustang will significantly gain in dimensions and could be more similar to today’s Dodge Challenger.
In addition to the famous four- and eight-cylinder petrol engines, the new car will be powered by a hitherto unknown hybrid drivetrain, which will meet new exhaust gas standards. The previously announced full electrification of the famous Ford Mustang is expected by the end of 2028
