Rumor has it that Ford is preparing an all-new Mustang for the 2021 model-year which will shift to Ford’s modular CD6 platform shared with the 2020 Ford Explorer and 2020 Lincoln Aviator. An electrified variant is in the works, as well as a Mustang-derived SUV.
All variants of the current-generation Ford Mustang are currently available for order. The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will be available by the fourth quarter of 2019.
