Ford has made it clear that it intends to build families around its iconic rides like the Bronco and the Mustang. We aren’t sure Mustang fanatics can take anything other than a two-door coupe version of the Mustang, and Ford found that out the hard way when it tried to call its electric Mustang-inspired SUV the Mach 1 early on. Mustang fans revolted.
Ford has now teased that it plans to give up more details on the Mustang-inspired SUV in November. The real question is, what will the details it shares include? Ford could be teasing the fact that it plans to tease those interested in the Mustang-inspired SUV with another dark image of the EV. Perhaps we could see an actual photo of the ride, or possibly even a prototype.
The Mustang-inspired SUV was spied in testing this week wearing heavy camo. One thing of note for the November date is that the LA Auto Show happens in November. That show would be a likely place for an unveiling of the car as California is one of the largest EV markets in the nation.
So far all we have to go on are tidbits of information Ford has doled out over the last few months. We know that the electric vehicle will be an SUV and that its design is heavily Mustang-inspired. Teaser photos in the past have shown the SUV to have triple element tail lights, a hallmark design of the Mustang.
Rumors have continued to suggest that the Mustang-inspired SUV will launch in 2020. A November debut for the EV would be no surprise. The ride has been tipped to have a driving range of 300 miles per charge, and the vehicle has been promised to “go like hell.” We have seen some renderings hinting at what the SUV might look like.

First thought is why is Ford going to build a SUV that looks like a Mustang? Part of owning a Mustang is not seeing them on every corner Now we are going to see the tri bar taillights on an SUV? Is that a Mustang in front of me or is it an SUV? If I wanted to drive a SUV, that is what I have bought. No problem with an electric Mustang as long as it looks like a Mustang. If this Mustang SUV turns out to be ugly, it could have a chilling effect on the entire Mustang line. In addition, just how many different SUV’s does Ford need? They have the Explorer, Escape, Flex, Expedition and soon the Bronco. Ford seems to be playing with fire here and I hope it doesn’t end badly.
Let’s be real. I mean… I have a mustang, and I do see them on every corner. More so now that i own one, but yeah they’re quite popular. Regardless, it’s not going to be a copy, it’s going to be a slight tribute the the theme and evolved mission of the mustang. Ford is evolving with the times, and should be applauded, IMHO.
You’re absolutely correct! So what if it’s “Mustang inspired” may look good, should have some performance too! Imagine one with 800hp and 900 TQ? Grannies, gapping an LS 1 lmao!
I’m sure you have heard there is a big population of “baby boomers.” Well, we are are not them but instead a big population of the “Fast & Furious” generation. We are the movie fans, both guys and some gals, who are now old enough to be daddies and mommies where our performance cars now must marry practicality to a car seat or two in the back row and a cargo volume to store a stroller or two. Therefore, we are looking for a performance station wagon or SUV/CUV. However, the Audi RS6 Avant or Tesla Model Y performance edition are too expensive for our checkbook. We hope Ford Mustang inspired EV SUV will fulfill our need.
My wife is 1 months pregnant, and I don’t think my Subaru BRZ can fit a car seat. I can’t afford a Ludicrous Model Tesla. I hope the Mustang EV SUV will fulfill my need for speed and also be a daddy.
