The Ford Mustang, an emblem of automotive freedom and exhilaration, is marking its 60th anniversary in style. A constant presence on roads and racetracks worldwide, the Mustang has transcended geographic and cultural boundaries, earning its place as a global automotive icon. This year, as the Mustang celebrates this significant milestone, it continues to captivate enthusiasts around the world, with sales across six continents and 85 markets. 

The Mustang Today: A Global Phenomenon

The appeal of the Mustang is universal, evident from its visibility on streets from Sydney’s George Street to Madrid’s Gran Via and Rio de Janeiro’s Avenida Atlântica. In addition to the classic Mustang models, the Mustang Mach-E—an all-electric variant—offers the thrill of instantaneous torque with zero emissions, broadening the Mustang’s appeal to an eco-conscious audience. 

Launch of the Seventh-Generation Mustang

2024 is not just a year of celebration but also marks the launch of the all-new seventh-generation Mustang globally. This launch underscores Ford’s commitment to innovation while staying true to the Mustang’s rich heritage of performance and excitement.
