MEET THE NEW 2023 FORD MUSTANG !
The 2023 Ford Mustang is expected to receive a complete overhaul, consisting of a thorough redesign and re-engineering, representing the seventh generation of the iconic Mustang nameplate.
- Due out in 2022 as a 2023 model year
- Complete overhaul, consisting of a redesign and re-engineering
- Potentially referred to internally as “S650”
- At least one model will feature a hybrid powertrain with all-wheel-drive
- Riding on Ford CD6 platform
- Offered in both coupe and convertible body styles
2023 Mustang Body Styles
The 2023 Ford Mustang is expected to continue being offered in two body styles:
- Two-door hardtop fastback coupe
- Two-door soft top convertible
The mechanically-unrelated Mustang Mach-E will continue being offered as a five-door crossover-like hatch.
2023 Mustang Design
Industry whispers peg the 2023 Ford Mustang design as being significantly more aggressive than that of its predecessor, the S550 Mustang.
2023 Mustang Platform
Like all seventh-generation units of the Ford Mustang, the 2023 Mustang will ride on the Ford CD6 platform currently utilized by the 2020 Ford Explorer and 2020 Lincoln Aviator.
The platform features a longitudinal powertrain configuration with rear-wheel-drive standard. The architecture is also capable of all-wheel-drive and electrification.
2023 Mustang Powertrain
The 2023 Mustang is expected to be powered by the following powertrain choices:
- At least two Ford EcoBoost engines, potentially being:
- 5.0L Coyote V8
- 5.0L Coyote V8 with hybrid-electric system with AWD
A ten-speed automatic transmission and a manual transmission are expected to be offered on models powered by internal combustion engines.
A range-topping, supercharged V6 or V8 model could arrive later on in the model’s lifecycle.
2023 Mustang Production
The 2023 Ford Mustang will likely continue being assembled by Ford USA at the Ford Flat Rock plant in Michigan.
2023 Mustang Availability
We expect the 2023 Ford Mustang to arrive some time during the 2022 calendar year as a 2023 model.
Due to the introduction of the Mustang Mach-E, it’s unclear whether the model will be available in global markets like the S550, or whether it primarily be a product destined for North America.
The 2023 Mustang starting price is expected to be around $28,000.
We expect that the seventh-generation Mustang will live on for at least the 2023 through the 2030 model years. It’s unclear what Ford will do with the nameplate after its model cycle.
