The Ford Authority Take
The drop in Mustang deliveries in December and in all of 2016 can be explained by a notable reduction in the popularity of passenger cars in the U.S. market, as consumers are heavily favoring crossovers (CUVs) and sport utility vehicles (SUVs). In addition, industry observers believe that the pony car segment, which includes Ford’s Mustang, Chevy Camaro, and Dodge Challenger, has reached its peak in 2015 and is now on the decline, despite positive indicators such as strong loyalty figures.
Even so, over seven thousand deliveries of America’s perennial pony car during a winter month is not to be taken lightly.
